Still the best book to have on hand if you want to get together with other musicians and have a grand sing-along! I have also given this to lots of parents of young children so that they can enjoy songs both ancient and modern as a family and keep the tradition of folk music alive. ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank

Anyone who nurses nostalgia for the early sixties, and the emergence of folk music as a defining cultural vehicle of that period, will be enchanted by this book. Written from material gathered from several hundred interviews, Hajdu is able to make us believe we are immersed in a novel with fascinating characters who happen to be real. He weaves the complicated backstory of folk music icons Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Richard and Mimi Baez Farina from their early family lives to their emergence into the infant days of the Greenwich Village Bohemian scene. It becomes apparent as the stories unfold that these talented and tortured artists pioneered a new form of creative expression and created an enduring genre and lifestyle based on their relationships with each other and interaction with the world around them. ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank
