Riding down Arnold Lane !

What a great book, especially if you lived through the sixties and recall the headlines of the time. This gives you true insight into those great days, and the lowdown of some of the music and musicians whose music has stood the test of time.
Joe Boyd was in the right place at the right time, and manages to capture some wonderful moments, with a good turn of phrase.
He recorded the first Pink Floyd single, before losing the band to some smart operators, was with Dylan at Newport, opened UFO with Hoppy Hopkins, and did his best to promote Nick Drake, which was no easy task, as you discover in this book, why he was so hard to promote !
I would love to meet Joe, but as it's most unlikely, this must be the next best thing.
