Set against a backdrop of world-changing historical and political events, Fire and Rain tells the extraordinary story of one pivotal year in the lives and music of four legendary artists, and reveals how these artists and their songs both shaped and reflected their times. Drawing on interviews, rare recordings, and newly discovered documents, acclaimed journalist David Browne “allows us to see—and to hear—the elusive moment when the ’60s became the ’70s in a completely fresh way” (Mark Harris, author of Pictures at a Revolution).

Review: Fire and Rain: The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, James Taylor, CSNY, and the Lost Story of 1970

User Review  - Goodreads

This would probably be a 3-1/2, but I couldn't give it a four. There was so much information, but many of the facts I was already pretty familiar with and that's why I read it so slowly. It was easy to stop and start. An interesting look at a busy time in the world of music. Read full review
