Description by OLDIES.com:

Reveals the work of nine key singer-songwriters of the 1960s: David Ackles, David Blue, Tim Buckley, Tim Hardin, Fred Neil, Phil Ochs, Tom Rapp, Tim Rose, & Tom Rush. Here are tales of their classic songs including "If I Were a Carpenter," "Everybody's Talkin'," "Song to the Siren," "Hey Joe," & "No Regrets." This book shows how these 9 artists each expanded the standard pop blueprint of the day & made a significant contribution to rock music's coming of age. A 32-page color section features rare & revealing photos, and a fully annotated and illustrated discography details the recorded output of the 9. Eight of them have been "rediscovered," their back-catalogues reissued and their reputations redefined. Only David Blue remains largely forgotten. Tim Buckley is the best known.
