A beautiful book, and a killer companion to the CD set of the same name – a very rich look at the recorded legacy of the Civil Rights era – particularly the more righteous albums of the late 60s and early 70s! The book's overflowing with great photos of vintage albums and singles, and is lovingly put together so that the words wrap around the images, with personal reflections, historical details, and even key artist information in some sidebar sections! Author Pat Thomas is a well-known collector, and a force behind some great reissues over the years – and as you'll see in the book, he really knows his stuff – digging deep through a range of different sounds and styles, and tracing the role of the record album way past popular music – to show it as a key force in transmitting wisdom and knowledge as an alternative form of broadcasting in the pre-internet age. 192 pages, full color, hardcover, and a heck of a great book!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
