Lost British Invaders, psychedelic pioneers, rock funnymen, blue-eyed soulsters, overlooked folk-rockers, behind-the-scenes producers -- all find a home as part of Urban Spacemen & Wayfaring Strangers,with a foreword by Paul Kantner of the Jefferson Airplane.
The follow-up to Unknown Legends of Rock'n'Roll,this book does not duplicate any of the artists selected for that prior volume. Additionally, each of the twenty chapters runs about three times as long -- 5,000 to 15,000 words! -- as the average chapter in Unknown Legends,allowing much greater space for in-depth investigation of each acts. The book also includes a CD with tracks by several of the acts covered in the volume. The text is accompanied by photos and reviews of the most essential recordings by each artist.
