Fast Forward, Play, and Rewind

It’s hard to say who this book is for, exactly, as the musical era of the late Sixties and early Seventies recedes further into the past. But there’s something more than nostalgia here: It’s documentation of a particular period of pop music, from a time whose documents are less than readily accessible. An appealing slice of pop music history for fans and researchers of the era.
