From their gigs in tiny church halls to multimillion-selling albums--"The Dark Side" "of the Moon," "Wish You Were Here," and the rock opera "The Wall"--and elaborate stadium shows, this tome celebrates legendary rock band Pink Floyd. Lavishly illustrated with previously unpublished photographs and rare graphic memorabilia, including posters, advertisements, handbills, and tickets from every era of the band's remarkable history, this survey provides a comprehensive overview of the group, its members, and the times. In addition to a biographical account of the band's collective and individual careers--from their pre-Floyd times in the early 1960s to the present day and their music's evolution from psychedelic and space rock to progressive rock genres--this definitive reference presents a meticulously researched chronological listing of every Pink Floyd and solo concert with set lists, radio and television appearances, and a UK and U.S. discography.

Visionary poet Allen Ginsberg was one of the most influential cultural and literary figures of the 20th century, his face and political causes familiar to millions who had never even read his poetry. And yet he is a figure that remains little understood, especially how a troubled young man became one of the intellectual and artistic giants of the postwar era. He never published an autobiography or memoirs, believing that his body of work should suffice. The Essential Ginsberg attempts a more intimate and rounded portrait of this iconic poet by bringing together for the first time his most memorable poetry but also journals, music, photographs and letters, much of it never before published.

In this book, Ralph Waldo Emerson's influence on the United States of America is seen through ten different lenses. The essays are lumped together under four general headings: Emerson and Poetry, Emerson and Social Criticism, Emerson and Intellectualism, and Emerson and Art. Essays link Emerson to Walt Whitman, Allen Ginsberg, John Holt, Randolph Bourne, Frank Lloyd Wright, and John Cassavetes. Emerson is also linked to modern dance, used as a counterargument to political dualism and rampant technological progression, and interrogated for the social deficiencies of his philosophy. All in all, the work is an attempt to revitalize a great American thinker, and to show how those who have followed his example and his words continue to make this country great today.

The peak of the British Blues Boom - and Savage Cabbage the band who could have rivalled Cream. At their height they were billed with Rory Gallagher's Taste at 'Colonel Barefoot's Rock Garden' where psychedelic lyrics and electric blues ignited the night. The arts became rampant street-culture - roaring like wildfire from '68 to '70: Doc's exotic final school years. A tragic chaotic emotional hiatus thrusts him choicelessly on stage alone, as a weird solo-Bluesman with a maniacal talk-in. He meets John Martyn, Jo Ann Kelly, and Mike Cooper. Art School looms and Doc finds himself standing alone with his Blues harp and faux-resophonic guitar - waiting for Papa Legba at yet another crossroads ... ""Deeply touched by what you wrote"" - John Martyn Praise for Volume one: ""One spectacular sentence after another - a delight to read"" - Deborah Magone ""The taste of some exotic food on the tip of the tongue - unsure of what it is you like - but you must try more and more ..."" - Colin J.
