From Library Journal:

After an excellent introductory essay that cogently and succinctly delineates the differences between the 1950s and 1960s rock milieus, veteran rock writer Helander fashions, in A-Z format, a chronicle of "the people who made the music." What Helander covers, he covers very well: snapshots of important artists like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jethro Tull, and Marvin Gaye as well as important songwriters, producers, and radio pioneers. Happily, Helander includes entries on both rock and R&B performers, as befits the eclectic culture of the era's pop music. Handy chronological discographies (which list album issue dates) follow each entry. The only trouble with this collection is that, from time to time, Helander omits important rockers. Well-versed readers and researchers will wince when they discover that the book has no entry for either Lesley Gore or Lou Christie (both 1960s powerhouse hit makers). Overall, though, this is a solid book for libraries that need at least one book on 1960s music. Its extensive bibliography can lead the serious student to further research, and it is priced very reasonably. A good public library purchase.ADavid M. Turkalo, Suffolk Univ. Law Sch. Lib., Boston
