The Psychedelic Rock FilesBook - 2003
The psychedelic sixties was all about experimenting... the clothes... the lifestyles... the attitudes... and most certainly the music. The sixties changed the way we heard and saw everything in the world. Music historian Jerry Lucky takes you on a mind-bending journey into the sixties and explores the origins of the psychedelic rock genre with an intriguing look back at all aspects of the counter culture to create a definitive guide to the era with this book. What was it about the psychedelic music of the sixties that was different from what had gone before? And what was it about psychedelic music that changed the music industry for better and as many would suggest for worse. This is a look back at the trippy sixties and explores in detail how psychedelic rock music came into being and the impact it's had on future generations. The book also establishes a workable definition for the psychedelic genre. No easy task given the wide spectrum of influences allowed. This book also looks at the psychedelic influence on the posters, the lightshows and the changing face of music venues. Also included is a comprehensive A to Z listing of over 700 psychedelic bands and artists each with a mini biography and selective discography. This is the second in a series of handy reference volumes designed to aid both the novice and the more accomplished record collector in discovering new and exciting musical finds.
