About the book:
Eight Miles High: Folk-Rock's Flight from Haight-Ashbury to Woodstock is the second volume of the first comprehensive history of one of the greatest movements in rock music, drawing upon interviews with more than 100 musicians, producers, managers, and journalists involved in the music. Where its predecessor ( Turn! Turn! Turn!: The '60s Folk-Rock Revolution) documented the birth and growth of folk-rock through mid-1966, its sequel, Eight Miles High, covers the branches and evolutions of folk-rock from mid-1966 to the end of the 1960s. Together, they form an epic history of the entire style as it evolved throughout the 1960s, following its growth chronologically from the streets of Greenwich Village at the dawn of the decade through the 1969 Woodstock Festival. The innovations of giants such as the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Fairport Convention, and Bob Dylan are covered, of course. But so are the contributions of lesser-known heroes, from Tim Buckley, Fred Neil, and Nick Drake to the labels, producers, session musicians, managers, and fans that helped made the music happen.
Folk-Rock's Flight from Haight-Ashbury to Woodstock is widely
at both independent booksellers and chain bookstores throughout North
