Which way did the 60's go?,
This review is from: White Bicycles: Making Music in the 1960s (Paperback)
An excellent memoir of the 60's from someone who was not only there but had a role to play in many different but fondly remembered aspects of the time.
Despite Boyd's successes there were also a load of missed opportunities recalled with a rueful but amusing slant - for instance he could have had a large slice of ABBA's publishing if circumstances hadn't intervened.
Most of the major names from the era seem to cross Boyd's path, but it is of course because of Nick Drake, Fairport Convention, the Incredible String Band and a few others that Boyd's memoir becomes an essential read. Just to find out how Fairport came to record Liege and Lief rather than a completely different record is almost worth buying the book for in itself.
