“This book belongs to anyone seeking the inside track on the music of this great era.” DUNCAN MACKAY of 10CC, Camel . Alan Parsons 


Probably the last word on a period in time where music changed the face of fashion, ended the Vietnam War and sowed seeds for generations to come. Seeker’s Guide is more than a reference, but rather an epic document depicting the vibrancy of musicianship. The essence of the book encapsulates a summarised history of musical genres (1950 -’79) that hovered over the globe amidst the turbulence of a creative revolution where individualism won the day. More than a discography and less than a concise dictionary, Seeker’s Guide finds the hidden riffs, expounds the songs and gives integrity to poets and musicians that were overlooked.
