    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."

    A great history of the classic 1960s Boston folk scene by two of those who made it classic. --staff pick, New England FolkWaves

    A lavish, comprehensive portrait of a particular place and time that shaped so much of the folk scene community today. . . . A masterpiece of oral history [that] demands a position on any folkie's must read list. --Folk Alliance Newsletter .
