The book can be read from cover to cover, which I’m sure most readers do. However, I found myself dipping in and out of chapters that I was more interested in, such as London in the 60s and 70s. I’ve since restarted the book and I’m thoroughly enjoying even more discoveries from this wonderful text.
Highly recommended for anyone interested in the counterculture of our capital city.
I hope you find my review helpful.
Not only did I enjoy this book but I also learned a lot from it, this is'nt one of those books that just retells the tales you already know. However, and perhaps because this was an ambitious undertaking covering a broad spectrum of arts and times, albeit in a limited geography, it can only be a partial history and I am sure that across the years and across the greater London area there are many more stories that are not told in this book.
From a purely personal perspective I was disappointed that the focus, perhaps not unsurprisingly because of Barry Miles's own past was more literary than musical or artistic, and that the book only really covered the period to the end of the '70s, did counter-culture stop with the Thatcher era? But these are minor grumbles because this is a fantastic book, well written and well structured, that I thoroughly enjoyed and, more importantly perhaps one that has created a thirst in me to learn more about this period and the counterculture vibe; a period and vibe that passed me by; was that because I grew up in Guildford?
