If Douglas Harr is not the world’s biggest rock and roll fan, I’d like to see who is. His paean to the music of his youth--the music so many of us shared--is a remarkable tribute of research and art. As an astonishing visual document, Rockin' the City of Angels stands on its own. When coupled with the author’s copious and insightful notes on the shows and albums depicted here, the book is elevated to a class all its own.

Harr’s introduction is the best way to understand this creation. He writes,

“This book is homage to rock music of the 1970s—the music of my youth—in concert and on film. It tells the story of more than three dozen key concert performances from this era, illuminating the genius of the best progressive and classical rock acts whose concerts I was lucky enough to attend.”

Those artists include The Who, the Rolling Stones, Alice Cooper, Jethro Tull, Genesis, ELP, King Crimson, and many others.

If you attended any of the shows Harr writes about, this book will bring you back to that magical moment. If you weren’t there, reading about them here will make you wish you had been.
