Publisher Comments:

A lavishly illustrated insiderand#8217;s look at 80 years of music and culture in Laurel Canyon.

Laurel Canyon is a zip code with its own play list: to name just a few, Sonny and Cher, The Doors, The Turtles, Canned Heat, Monkees, Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne; Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young; Eagles, and Carole King all cultivated their immortal sounds in this L.A.-based musical fraternity.

Written by a long-time L.A. resident who knows them all, Canyon of Dreams traces the history of the community and its enduring legacy. Taking a deeply personal approach, it uses a multiple-voice narration based on exclusive interviews with the areaand#8217;s musical elite. Because of their close and long-time connection with Kubernik, some of these stars are speaking openly for the first time.
