Sixties Rock: Garage, Psychedelic and Other Satisfactions

( 1 )

Overview

Unlike their rock 'n' roll predecessors, many rock musicians of the mid-sixties came to consider themselves as artists, as self-conscious makers of a new sonic medium. Sixties Rock offers a provocative look at these artists and their innovations in two pivotal rock genres: garage rock and psychedelic music. Delving into everything from harmony to hardware, Michael Hicks shows what makes this music tick and what made it unique in its time.

    This book for music scholars only

    If you like to be bored with BIG words and musical dissection then this is the book for you! I found the writing style very snobby. I guess if you want to know the chord progressions of Louie, Louie it's OK but.....it sounds like a music professor trying to understand garage music. I would only recommend this to serious musicians.
