UNTERBERGER, RICHIE ~ EIGHT MILES HIGH: FOLK-ROCK'S FLIGHT FROM HAIGHT-ASHBURY TO WOODSTOCK
BACKBEAT ~ 0-87930-743-9 ~ 2003 ~ English

Rock / History & Criticism

Second part of Unterberger´s excellent history of the emergence of American Rock from it´s Folk and Folk-Rock roots. Very well written and superbly researched, as always, this is a must for any serious Rock fan, who wishes to understand the genealogy of the genre.


UNTERBERGER, RICHIE ~ TURN! TURN! TURN!: THE '60S FOLK-ROCK REVOLUTION
BACKBEAT ~ 0-87930-703-X ~ 2002 ~ English

Rock / History & Criticism

Excellent book by American Rock critic Richie Unterberger, who is definitely the best writer abuot Rock currently active in the US and about the only one with a broader and intelligent view on music. This is the first volume about American Rock in the mid to late 1960s, which covers the shift from Folk to Folk-Rock between 1965 and 1966., starting with Bob Dylan´s first appearence with his electric band at 1965 Newport Festival. Extremely well researched, this is a classic example of how books about Rock should be written.


UNTERBERGER, RICHIE ~ UNKNOWN LEGENDS OF ROCK 'N' ROLL: PSYCHEDELIC UNKNOWNS, MAD GENIUSES, PUNK PIONEERS, LO-FI MAVERICKS & MORE
MILLER FREEMAN BOOKS ~ 0-87930-534-7 ~ 1998 ~ English ~ Includes CD

Rock / Psychedelics / Biography / History & Criticism

Unterberger is a senior editor of the All Music Guide to Rock and a very knowledgeable writer. This book tells the stories of the lesser known musicians and groups of the Rock genre, which by no means makes them less significant. Fascinating reading and a potential eye-opener (or perhaps ear-opener) for all music lovers who missed some of these artists´ sounds. Recommended!


UNTERBERGER, RICHIE ~ URBAN SPACEMEN AND WAYFARING STRANGERS : OVERLOOKED INNOVATORS AND ECCENTRIC VISIONARIES OF '60S ROCK
MILLER FREEMAN BOOKS ~ 0-87930-616-5 ~ 2000 ~ English ~ Includes CD

Rock / Psychedelics / Biography / History & Criticism

The second volume of what seems to be a "series" and a companion to the one just above. Much the same format concentrating again on the unsung heros of the genre, although some of the names are pretty well known to a serious fan. Based on many interviews with the artists and spiced with the author´s in-depth comments, this is definitely worth reading and full of valuable facts and important observations. Recommended!
