(2009/Sterling) Barry Miles, 23.5x31.1 cm, Gebunden mit Schutzumschlag, Englisch, 304 Seiten, durchgehend, meist farbig illustriert. Klasse gestalteter Schmöker (1.8kg) für alle Sixties Freunde!*****Sonderpreis - This is a fascinating volume that celebrates the United States embracing British music, film, fashion and art in the 1960s. Capturing one of the most exciting artistic periods in recent history, this is an irresistible look back for all. It is filled with photographs of the many stars that crossed the pond, such as The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Sean Connery and Twiggy. This richly illustrated and informative volume celebrates the pivotal cultural moment when the United States took on a British accent. The huge volume of talent crossing the pond included the The Beatles, The Dave Clark Five, The Kinks, The Moody Blues, Them (and Van Morrison), The Yardbirds, The Who and, of course, the Rolling Stones. The invasion wasn´t only musical: Peter O´Toole, Julie Andrews, Sean Connery and Michael Caine made a splash in Hollywood, while films like ´Goldfinger´, ´Alfie´ and ´What´s New, Pussycat?´ topped box-office charts. ´The Avengers´ became cult TV and ´Carnaby Street´ defined hip style, turning Mary Quant, Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton into fashion icons. Filled with photographs that capture one of the most exciting artistic periods in recent history, this is an evocative, irresistible look back.

Limitiert auf 1000 Stück, 4,3 Kg, 840 Seiten, 24 x 28 x 6 cm, Englisch und Italienisch The idea for this project came about several years ago, in the late 1990s, triggered by a passionate devotion for this forgotten world. The ini-tial plan was to cover only the present groups that perform rock´n´roll, beat and the western sound but soon the urge to go back in time super-seded the first intention and so the search was widened to the postwar years. Hence I came across musicians like Paolo Tomelleri, Bruno De Filippi, Gerry Bruno, Raf Montrasio, and from there on it was just like working on an assembly line that led me to many more-or-less known artists who at the time were the delight of nightclub patrons. This is the fruit of that widened search, the aim being the re-discovery of the magic early Sixties through the costumes, instruments, and the artists´ personal history. I have included a substantial discography (never compiled befo-re), along with a filmography, a handy bibliography, and a small selection of letters written by the musicians themselves. This project was also conceived as a fitting, long overdue tribute to all those musicians who have backed many famous artists without any credits at all, who were eclipsed by the leading artist but who all the same were crucial for the latter´s success. Just think of Marino Marini´s band, newcomer Mina´s, Fred Buscaglione´s Asternovas, Piero Giorgetti´s, Riz Samaritano´s, Henghel Gualdi´s musicians and plenty others. The journey doesn´t stop here, just as the music didn´t stop in 1964. The second leg will take us directly in the midst of the Beat era. A third volume, focusing on the Italian revival from the early Eighties to the present day, will hopefully bring our trip to an end. Note: I couldn´t fully complete this music period for want of information regarding many a group. Information and material not included in these volumes are most welcome. In order to complete the second volume in this series, I would like to encourage all those who have a history with a band or bands between 1963 and 1970 to get in touch and share their photographs or other material which could be appropriate for publication. For my personal archive, I am also interested in photos, postcards, discs and other material related to groups from the `50s and `60s to set up a music archive that may facilitate research for other books in the future. These volumes could become a valuable starting point for educational studies, historical research and exhibitions that may well serve as a means to rediscover the golden age of nightclubs, when the music was performed live and the orchestras were a major attraction for young people. Maurizio Maiotti L´idea di realizzare questo volume nasce diversi anni fa, verso la fine degli anni ´90, spinta dalla grande passione per questo mondo dimenticato. L´inizio del progetto era legato solo ai gruppi attuali che proponevano rock´n´roll, beat e il western sound. Ma ben presto lo stimolo di andare indietro nel tempo sovrasta la prima intenzione e così le ricerche si allargano fino a tornare nel lontano dopoguer-ra. Sono così entrato in contatto con alcuni musicisti tra cui Paolo Tomelleri, Bruno De Filippi, Gerry Bruno e Raf Montrasio e da qui è stata come una catena di montaggio che mi ha portato a conoscere numerosi altri artisti oggi più o meno noti che all´epoca dilettava-no il pubblico sul palco di night famosi. Pertanto il lavoro si è allargato e questo ne è il risultato. Ho voluto farvi così scoprire la magia dei primi anni 60 attraverso i costumi, gli strumenti e la storia dei musicisti. Ho voluto presentavi una discografia corposa, una traccia importante fino ad oggi mai proposta, accompagnata da una filmografia, una bibliografia utile e una piccola sezione di lettere scritte dai musicisti stessi. L´intento di questo lavoro è anche quello di dare finalmente merito a coloro che hanno accompagnato tanti artisti famo-si senza però ottenere grandi riconoscimenti, musicisti oscurati dalla figura del proprio cantante ma pur sempre importanti ed essenziali per il successo di quest´ultimo. Parliamo ad esempio del complesso di Marino Marini, quello della esordiente Mina, gli Asternovas di Fred Buscaglione, i musicisti di Piero Giorgetti, di Riz Samaritano, di Henghel Gualdi e tanti altri. Ma il percorso non si ferma qui, la musica non si è fermata nel 1964 e quindi il cammino prosegue e vi do appuntamento col secondo volume che ci porterà in piena era beat. Nel

(2005/Bounty) Paperback, 19.5x22.5 cm, 288 Seiten, Englisch, hunderte s/w und Farbfotos. Restposten mit leichten Lagerspuren. Klasse ´nice price´ Schmöker für alle Musikfreunde!***** James Brown, Woodstock, Rolling Stones, Johnny Ray, Isle Of Weight, Jimi Hendrix, Clash, Grateful Dead, P.J.Proby, Bob Dylan, Beatles und viele mehr. ´ I Was There´ recreates the sights, smells and sounds of the 20th century´s most talked about moments in the history of live music. The first fully integrated, illustrative companion to these legendary events, ´I Was There´ reflects the scale and scope of the stadiums (immense to intimate), the vibe (chaotic to psychedelic) and the people (blessed-out hippies, to punks and star-struck teens). First-hand accounts embellish the beautiful pictures of the gigs, in the form of articles and interviews with key witnesses, including Pink Floyd as well as Petula Clark and Woody Woodmansey, the drummer for David Bowie, who describes the night when the ´death´ of Ziggy Stardust shook the rock world. Warhol´s entourage, Gong and Rick Wakeman all contribute as well as Siouxsie Sioux and countless photographers and fans.
