I was only 12 in 1971 so the era described in this book is not something I experienced at the time. But as a teenager in the mid-1970s, I was very aware of the turbulence still echoing from the late 1960s-early 1970s. Many of the political and social figures active in that era were still going strong - I can remember seeing the Little Red Schoolbook in a bookshop, and all the controversy that book caused. For me, Jonathon Green's interviews are highly evocative of an era that seems so different to today's more commercialised world. But I would advise against any nostalgia - some of the descriptions of the mess people got into through over-indulgences of various kinds are very sobering.
