American Troubadours: Groundbreaking Singer-songwriters of the '60s
This book shows how nine talented artists - David Ackles, David Blue, Tim Buckley, Tim Hardin, Fred Neil, Phil Ochs, Tom Rapp, Tim Rose and Tom Rush - each expanded the standard pop blueprint of the day and made a significant contribution to rock's coming of age, with songs like "If I Were a Carpenter," "Everybody's Talkin'" and "Hey Joe." Features photos throughout, discographies, and a great 32-page color section.
