"Danny Goldberg's new book is a subjective history of 1967, the year he graduated from high school ... 1967 was the year of the release of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and of debut albums from the Doors, the Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin, among many others. 1967 was also the year of the Summer of Love; the year that millions of now-illegal LSD tabs flooded America; Muhammad Ali was convicted of avoiding the draft; Martin Luther King Jr. publicly opposed the war in Vietnam ... It was the year that hundreds of thousands of protesters vainly attempted to levitate the Pentagon. It was the year the word 'hippie' peaked and died, and the Yippies were born. Exhaustively researched and informed by interviews and conversations with Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary, Ram Dass, Tom Hayden, Cora Weiss, and Grace Slick, In Search of the Lost Chord is a mosaic of seminal moments in the psychedelic, spiritual, rock-and-roll, and political protest cultures of 1967"--Dust jacket flap.

Mr. Goldberg misses all the enthusiasm, excitement and vibrancy of 1967. I believe it was Time magazine that termed the word 'Youthquake' to describe the year (or era); this term describes my memories of the year 1967 perfectly. Mr Goldberg in turn, presents us with an afternoon nap. Pass on it and spend your time on YouTube, groovin' to the oldies.
