Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
This book shows how nine talented artists - David Ackles, David Blue, Tim Buckley, Tim Hardin, Fred Neil, Phil Ochs, Tom Rapp, Tim Rose and Tom Rush - each expanded the standard pop blueprint of the day and made a significant contribution to rock's coming of age, with songs like "If I Were a Carpenter," "Everybody's Talkin'" and "Hey Joe." Features photos throughout, discographies, and a great 32-page color section.
Book News Annotation:
Brend (writer and professional musician) focuses on nine key figures who moved through the teeming world of Greenwich Village coffeehouses in the 1960s—Tim Rose, Tom Rush, David Ackles, David Blue, Tim Buckley, Tim Hardin, Fred Neil, Phil Ochs, and Tom Rapp—revealing their vital impact on the singer-songwriter movement. Drawing heavily on firsthand interviews with the surviving musicians (except for the reclusive Neil), he offers in-depth biographies as well as critical musical analyses, illustrated discographies, and rare color and b&w photographs.
