California Dreaming - Download Part 1
11 Apr 2008
This April we are very pleased to offer our readers three sample extracts from our limited edition California Dreaming: Memories & Visions of L.A 1966-1975 by Henry Diltz. Simply save the PDF file to your desktop to view on your PC, or print out the pages to enjoy during a quiet moment's reading.
Click here to download Part One taken from the book's introductory pages, where Jackson Browne and others recall the burgeoning music scene of The Troubadour and Whisky A Go Go and the important role these clubs played in bringing together like-minded musicians and song-writers.
Next week, in Part Two, we will be revisiting the original, first-hand narrative to present an exclusive extract by the community of musicians who first set up camp high in the hills of Laurel Canyon. Expect to hear more from the likes of Joni Mitchell and David Crosby and to see more beautiful work from the artist behind the camera, Henry Diltz.
