London Live is a must have for all serious music fans. Its also a nostalgia-fest for all of us old enough to have been there. Although it covers all the legendary watering holes dotted around the capital, its focus is on the Marquee, particularly the 'Wardour Street' period. The jewel in the crown for this particular tome though is the 'Marquee Data Base' in the back. Basically its a pretty definitive gig list covering the the '60s and '70s. On any given date you can find out not only who headlined but also who the support act was etc. Speaking as one who spent the period 1967-70 living in Earls Court, the Marquee at the time (along with The Ship in Wardour St.) was effectively my favourite watering hole, and the place I spent many evenings during my misspent youth. My first visit was to see Cream's final performance there in May '67. There are so many astonishing nights to remember, from watching Yes get there big break supporting the Nice. King Crimson's first appearance in '69, Jethro Tull, Taste, The Move, and being totally freaked by how good Family were. Queueing for hours to get a ticket to see Jeff Beck. Queueing for hours and failing to get a ticket for the 1st Led Zeppelin gig there! And so on. Its all here folks! Go for it! A great read!

An enjoyable journey through the live music venues of London, which takes me back to the 1960s, when I frequented many of them! There is particular detail about The Marquee, which was arguably the premier venue for the best part of 20 years - they provide a day by day breakdown of who played there from the early 1960s to 1980 - and what a line-up that is! Cream, Hendrix, Led Zep - they were all there!

Probably quite essential reading for 50 - 60 year old men!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pictures and Text Bring the 1960's Rock scene to life 6 Mar. 2014
By Robert N. Cabral - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Outstanding compilation of pictures, maps, history, names, gigs, etc. of the London scene during the mid 60's. I am writing about that era and this 'picture' book has become an important part of my research.
3.0 out of 5 stars Only covers clubs - no Hammersmith Odeon or Hyde Park 23 Jan. 2016
By R. Beckman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Amazon's description is NOT accurate "From tiny pubs and clubs, to refined concert halls, to huge amphitheatres and parks", This book only covers the clubs. So no mention of the Hammersmith Odeon, Hyde Park, etc. Good book as far as just covering the clubs, but that was not what I was looking for.
