Handsome book, midnight blue boards with gold gilt title impressed on spine, in multi colored flower power photographic jacket . This fascinating book follows the exploits of a generation of musicians . from Vancouver to Halifax . kids who started out playing high-school dances and local coffee houses . and who were drawn to the musical mecca of the Yorkville district of Toronto . Like Haight-Ashbury and Greenwich Village the Yorkville district was a 60s haven for free love, and the birthplace of some fabulous music . It's where west coast cowboy Ian Tyson met small-town Ontario singer Sylvia Fricke to formIan & Sylvia; where pregnant art school dropout Joni Anderson settled after travelling from Saskatchewan for the Mariposa Festival & became Joni Mitchell; where artists mingled with hippies & bikers; where a generation of Canadians were turned on to a home grown beat. While most of the successful musicians of the era earned their success, others sought stardom by wearing Beatles wigs and adopting British sounding names; and some rode the steep trajectory to fame only to suffer a rapid drug - induced demise. This book offers an inside look at the musical breeding ground that was Canada in the swinging 60s; tracing the artistic cross-fertilization that spawned such legendary collaborations as The Lovin' Spoonful; The Mamas & The Papas; Blood, Sweat & Tears; The Ugly Ducklings, plus some equally talented but some now forgotten bands like The Mandala; The Paupers; Kensington Market & more. Based on interviews with more than 100 musicians, record producers, club owners & groupies & illustrated with memorabilia from their personal collections, this brilliantly written book by Canada's foremost music historian and journalist, brings the dawn of Canadian rock & pop music to vivid life. This book was later made into the great 'Shakin' All Over', a CBC two-part television documentary. This book is " Before the Gold Rush - Flashbacks to the dawn of the Canadian Sound " .
