The Crawdaddy! book

£17.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

When 17-year-old Paul Williams began publishing Crawdaddy! magazine in 1966, just as the American counterculture was poised to explode, the world was only beginning to take rock as seriously as the intelligentsia took folk and jazz. Preceding both Rolling Stone and Creem, Crawdaddy! has gone down in history as the pioneer of rock journalism, and was the training ground for many rock writers who would later become stars in their own right.
Now, Paul Williams has gathered the best of Crawdaddy! into a revealing anthology that captures a fascinating historical moment when Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Grateful Dead, and Buffalo Springfield were brand new and as yet unheard, and inspired writers were struggling to find the language with which to describe this new, vital music. Peter Guralnick, Ralph Gleason, Richard Farina, Jon Landau, Samuel R. Delany, and Richard Meltzer are just a few of the distinguished critics who wrote for Crawdaddy! and who are featured in this stunning collection.
