About the book:
Turn! Turn! Turn!: The 1960s Folk-Rock Revolution is the first 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. The book covers 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, and was published by Backbeat in 2003. 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, the Lovin' Spoonful, and Bob Dylan are covered, of course. But so are the contributions of lesser-known heroes, from Tim Buckley, Fred Neil, and Ian & Sylvia to the labels, producers, session musicians, managers, and fans that helped made the music happen.
