Large trade paperback signed by the author , Jim Rooney
From Amazon: "a classic in the history of American popular culture. The book tells
the story of the folk music community in Cambridge, Massachusetts, from
its beginnings in living rooms and Harvard Square coffeehouses in the
late 1950s to the heyday of the folk music revival in the early 1960s.
Hundreds of historical photographs, rescreened for this edition, and
dozens of interviews combine to re-create the years when Joan Baez, Bob
Dylan, and a lively band of Cambridge folksingers led a generation in
the rediscovery of American folk music. Compiled by two musicians who
were active participants in the Cambridge folk scene, the volume
documents a special time in United States culture when the honesty and
vitality of traditional folk music were combined with the raw power of
urban blues and the high energy of electric rock and roll to create a
new American popular music."
