About this title


Through the late 60s Linda Eastman made friends with and took pictures many of the pop icons, including the Beatles right up to their 1970 break-up. This book contains many exclusive photographs by Linda of the stars of the 60s.

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luminaries documented in this coffee-table album of 221 duotone and 32 color photographs, most of which were previously unpublished.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).
