Overview

It's the late Sixties, the Beatles intact, Jimi Hendrix exploding and the Doors demanding the world. And on the East Coast, Asbury Park, New Jersey, will become the epicenter of a new brand of rock and roll.

But as The Red Album of Asbury Park unfolds, a boardwalk Liverpool lies in the future. Racial tensions, escalating crime and a fading reputation as a first-class resort have shaken the City by the Sea. Asbury is at tipping point.

Editorial Reviews

Aquarian Magazine - John Pfeiffer
It is simply an amazing work of fiction… a smart look inside the topsy-turvy world of the rock and roll lifestyle and the futility, hope, danger, love and mystery of survival in general. The Red Album Of Asbury Park is a book you won’t be able to put down.”—John Pfeiffer, Aquarian Magazine
Caught in the Carousel - Alex Green
“An affecting and honest work that rolls out like a pop song and resonates unforgettably, the way a great chorus should.”—Alex Green, Caught in the Carousel
Former Books Editor Asbury Park Press - Dave Williams
“Strongly evocative of a time and place, of interest especially to those who hail from the “swamps of Jersey” but also to anyone who loves rock 'n' roll. Good book!”—Dave Williams, Journalist, former Books Editor, Asbury Park Press.
