Overview

In celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of the Summer of Love, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has launched a major exhibition examining how rock & roll came of age in the late Sixties and influenced everything from fashion and art to politics and literature. I Want to Take You Higher expands on that exhibit, showcasing the infamous icons of the era - from John Lennon's Sgt. Pepper uniform to Janis Joplin's hand-painted Porsche. A host of revealing new interviews offer never-before-published tales from the land of psychedelic wonder. Country Joe McDonald, Allen Ginsberg, Grace Slick, Mickey Hart, Donovan, Bob Weir and members of the influential bands Big Brother and the Holding Company, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Moby Grape and many others contribute fresh perspectives on now-legendary events. I Want to Take You Higher also features posters, paraphernalia and an illustrated time line (just in case you forgot), as well as classic and previously unpublished images from the greatest rock photographers of the era: Jim Marshall, Baron Wolman, Robert Whitaker, Michael Cooper, Herb Greene, Bob Seidemann and others.

    A Trip Back to the 60's

    I LOVED IT!!! This book grabbed, and kept, my attention right from the start. The fact that the people writing the book had actually lived through the events really enriched the story. The book went through, year by year, from 1965-1969, and highlighted the people, places, and events that helped shape the psychadelic era. It began with the more country type groups tweaked out on acid (the Charlatans and Moondog), and went on to highlight the London Underground Scene, the psychedelic pioneers, acid tests, LA¿s summer of love, Haight Ashbury, and finally, my favorite, WOODSTOCK!!! Among my favorite topics were 'Dr.' Timothy Leary, the acid pioneer, the banana turn on, Grateful Dead, Donovan, Trips Festival, psychedelic bread, the Human Be-In, UFO Club, Moby Grape, and the love now movement. I immediately fell in love with the bright, crazy prints and tie dyes used to illustrate the book. Another cool feature were the bits and pieces of assorted oddities and 60¿s facts scattered at the bottom of each page. I would definently recommend this book to any wanna-be hippie like me, or anyone looking to learn a little more about psychedelic rock, but doesn¿t want too complicated reading.
