The sights and sounds of one of the most famous music festivals in history come to life in this extraordinary compilation of photography, memorabilia, and firsthand accounts from the Summer of Loveís biggest event. It is the definitive book on the unprecedented gathering of folk, pop, soul, and jazz music icons, such as Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, the Who, and Otis Redding. This chronicle features a wealth of previously unpublished material from the producerís archives, rare items from collectors, personal photographs from concert-goers, and dozens of new interviews with musicians involved with the concert, including Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Ravi Shankar, members of the Jefferson Airplane, and Canned Heat. Through hundreds of photographs from notable artists alongside ephemera and memorabilia, such as programs, posters, advertisements, and album covers, the book evokes the magic moment of the festival as the epicenter of a groundbreaking movement, showcasing it in all its kaleidoscopic glory.
