From Library Journal:

Independent of her status as Mrs. Paul McCartney and former keyboard player/backup vocalist with the post-Beatles group Wings, McCartney has cultivated a successful photographic career. She is an intimate of the rock luminaries documented in this coffee-table album of 221 duotone and 32 color photographs, most of which were previously unpublished. A devotee of natural light and the spontaneous moment, the sum of McCartney's photographs--unlike the highly stylized and technically manipulated rock portraits of Annie Leibovitz--reflect a relaxed and unforced quality. Portraits include a 19-year-old Jackson Browne mugging, a stunning Jimi Hendrix in performance, Bob Dylan scratching his ear, Frank Zappa holding his baby daughter Moon Unit, and Janis Joplin hoisting a bottle of Southern Comfort. The photographs constitute a lush and lovely family album. More often than not, however, the author's accompanying text has the distracting presence of a boring slide show. This is a luxury acquisition for big budgets. The unsurpassed meat and potatoes picture book is still Michael Ochs's Rock Archives ( LJ 12/84).

From Publishers Weekly:

Glee at the destruction of convention and morality, "all that made America great," pervades these intense photographs by an entranced chronicler of the 1960s pop-music scene in America. McCartney early on filched an invitation to a Rolling Stones party concert invitation and soon became the main lensperson at Manhattan's Fillmore East and on the road with top groups--Beatles, Stones, Doors, Cream, Jefferson Airplane et al. The photos show McCartney to have been a talented photojournalist, but her subjects here are so busy breaking rhythmic barriers, assuming attitudes, striking poses and being ungroomed that they are pictorial in their own right. Her accompanying recollections, including those of life with husband Paul and the Beatles, are uncluttered and minimally worshipful. An important item for unreconstructed members of the Woodstock generation.
