Relive the decade when Reading’s music scene turned itself up to 11 and really started to rock. This hugely well-informed and entertaining account of live music in Reading between 1966 and 1976 charts the journey from the emergence of psychedelia to the dawn of punk, and brings into focus the many musicians and bands – from The Amboy Dukes to The Who – that played at venues around the town. Read about the early years of the Reading Festival, lost and much missed music venues, and local musical heroes.

Includes a foreword by Mike Cooper.
