J'ai enfin entre mes mains (et il faut les 2) ce bijou, cette somme, que dis-je cette anthologie du rock psychédélique américain. j'étais déjà totalement accro du livre de Philippe Thyerre (qui reste excellent), mais la on touche au sublime, au phantasme : 1200 pages avec des infos sur des groupes plus obscures les uns que les autres, au fait des dernières infos obtenus grace au Web et au myriades de réédition, en passant des singles au albums, comme aux test-pressings...yarglllh !
je n'en suis qu'a la lettre B, et j'ai déjà découvert pas mal de groupes et de musiques délicieuses (et parfois abominables, mais cela fait partie du jeu).
pour faire court, je le conseille vivement.

Imaginez la Bible réactualisée en 2010 avec de nouveaux chapitres, c'est la référence ultime de ce phénomène musical américain des années 1963 à 1977 (nettement plus novateur et intéressant que le psyché anglais trop "British")
Là on avait à faire a des véritables déjantés des musiciens faisant de la musique bourrés de drogues psychédéliques
Ce livre est la genèse, l'histoire et la fin, du psyché US
C'est le Graal, fin de l'histoire...voila tout est dit

The Master Work Returns Once More 12 novembre 2010
Par Kevin D. Rathert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
After 5 years, Vernon Joynson's masterwork returns. With great credit to Max Waller for all his work in revising and updating the last volume of "Fuzz, Acid and Flowers Revisited." This 6th edition is a full 1,410 pages in length and weight a hefty 7.6 pounds. Pushing the limits of book binding and tightening the margins, an incredible amount of information has been amassed and is contained within. There may be the odd error here and there, but considering the depth and breadth of band entries on display this is far and away the definitive encyclopedia of American psych/garage music spanning an increased timespan 1963-1977. Entries are alphabetical, contain valuable info such as albums and singles released by the band with original label and catalog number, as well as biographical info on band members, and wonderfully useful information on reissues of the individual bands regarding cd or lp titles, release dates, and precious information as to what the reissue contains. While not pushing their personal tastes or preferences heavily, the authors, (Joynson credits Max Waller for his tireless work in updating the book) do a wonderful job of describing and critiquing the reissues. The book contains 1,376 pages of text, 22 pages of appendixes, and 12 pages of color photos of album artwork. This time around, only the Gear Fab and Sundazed catalogs are included. The Akarma label from Italy whose catalog was in the 5th edition of the work has been deleted, most probably due to the fact that Akarma, a division of Comet Records, in Italy, were indeed bootlegging band's works and avoiding paying royalties. Akarma releases are still contained within the text because in cases such as tripsichord Music Box the Akarma release was the only way to get all 14 tracks released by the band. Some entries from the 5th edition have been deleted due to binding restrictions. Max Stephen Waller's alter ego Max Myndblown already has a Facebook page up that will eventually include information on bands who either have never had an entry in previous editions of "Fuzz, Acid and Flowers" or have been deleted in favor of new entries or expanded entries for seminal bands such as the 13th Floor Elevators. This book is an absolute must for American psych and garage fans, and being limited to 2500 copies worldwide it may not be around long. A once advertised hardbound edition of the book which was to be limited edition, 1000 copies, faux leather with stamped numbers on each volume is no longer in the cards. Binding costs were considered prohibitive. This is not a book to read cover to cover, but rather one that you will find yourself consulting constantly for info on original releases, reissues, and compilations alike. It leaves you wondering about just one more band or musician. The data is reliable, the writing done with lots of tender loving care and is presented in wonderfully designed format. This may well be the last edition of this seminal work, but let us keep our fingers crossed that future editions will come to fruition. Word has it that Joynson presently has no plans of updating the UK companion to "Fuzz, Acid and Flowers," the equally important "Tapestry of Delights." Every fan of garage/psych should buy at least one copy of this book so that Joynson has greater incentive to update his 3 invaluable books, this being the most popular and most extensive of the titles. Take my word for it, you just open the book to any page, spot the name of a band or two that bring up memories, you peruse the entry which mentions release titles and dates that spring more memories, then the name of a related or comparable band pops up and the process continues time after time, hour after hour, day after day. The entries are often adorned by album artwork, and the cycle goes on and on. I can't thank Vernon Joynson, Max Waller, Ivor Truman, and Mark Fruille enough for all their efforts. When the book arrived yesterday my son texted me that it was "signed, sealed and delivered." He knows how much this book means to me. I gotta admit I was like a spoiled brat kid awaiting the books arrival. Since its arrival the book is a constant companion in my off work hours. And believe you me it will be for quite some time to come. Its really incredible to see entries for bands of my youth who were huge regionally but unheard of in other parts of the country. Just one anecdote, the owner of the largest record shop in town asked to take a look at "Fuzz, Acid etc." leafed through a few pages, got a smile on his face, turned the book toward me as he pointed out an entry for his cousin's band from the Chicago are who had released one single in their tenure. With the relatively low cost (the book can be obtained even more inexpensively from Amazon.co.uk) this book has a place on the Christmas list of any and all fans of US rock of the 60s and 70s. If stranded on an island this is the one music book I want to have in my possession. My advice to one and all, buy a copy of this book and show Vernon Joynson that the world would be a better place with updates of "Tapestry of Delights Revisited" and "Dreams, Fantasies, and Nightmares Revisited" the last volume covering garage/psych from Canada, the Netherlands, and other nations. In the meantime, thanks Vernon, Max, and all the others who invested long periods of their life to this endeavor. Job well done. Very, very well done.

A dream came true 14 décembre 2010
Par Pedro Petrosino - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Since I was a boy I was obsessed wit information, music information.Full discographies and line-ups were all that mattered to me.Now a mature man, I have found THE HOLY GRAILS of rock books.All three by the same author with supreme love and care for facts.Not the same old acnedotes will be found here, serious information for the serious collector.
Although some versions of the books may be found in internet, forget them, these new editions are updates.Maybe one minor omission is in them, not the perfect book will ever be published.
This 8 pound book is one of my best friends.

Fuzz, Acid and Flowers 24 décembre 2010

Just the best literary piece when truly discussing the ins and outs of the 60s music and drug culture. Been there, and the book is authentic. If you want a great reference book for this period, then I suggest you pick this up when you can find it. It's hard to find at any point, new or used.

The Gospel of St Vernon - the best reference book on US psych and prog that exists 9 mai 2012
Par Michael - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I don't understand the criticisms that have been levelled against this book. Too much detail on obscure bands and not enough on well-known ones? I just can't agree with that. It's just those obscure bands that many buy this book for, as well as discovering similar bands while browsing through it. I suspect that the criticism of the book is based on personal reasons or other psych politics, someone probably got kicked off the project or something and is now promoting his own book. Whatever. The only accusation I have against the authors is that together they have cost me a lot of money in new music, but considering some of the great artists I've discovered through their work, I think they can be forgiven. Their short descriptions of the albums are normally enough to give a general impression of what to expect, and when I then get the album myself, I generally tend to agree with their assessment of it.

There is a lot of material on many bands I'm not interested in, but that goes with the territory. Important is that if I pick up any compilation of 60s or 70 artists, I can probably find information on nearly every band on there, no matter how obscure. I've checked through my many compilations, and it is very seldom when a band is not listed, normally because it's an acetate which was not an official release, or it's a song publicly released for the first time. If I were the authors I'd seriously think of trying to get some kind of commission from Amazon and the re-issue record companies, for together they have certainly generated sales of countless thousands of CDs! Too bad this book now goes for a ridiculous price. My advice would be to keep checking every couple of weeks. I got mine for about 30 pounds from Amazon.uk from a large seller which didn't seem to know the true value of it. So don't give up hope, just get yourself a copy somehow.

Probably the best source out there 16 mai 2011
Par Jersey Kid - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I bought this after reading positive reviews in Ugly Things and Shindig. While the sheer size is impressive - 1400 pages and seven pounds - the content is more impressive.

This tome attempts to provide key pieces of information about bands of the psychedelic and garage era. It's limits are perhaps overly broad since it complies data on bands as big as The Doors and as small as...well, those who released one 45. It provides the basic information you want: the band members; where they came from; what the recorded and (where available) a history.

To be sure, it's neither perfect in accuracy nor in content. I pulled 100 groups from my record collection - the criteria being they were US bands that had records reissued on labels such as Arf! Arf!, Breakaway, Distortions; Gear Fab, Get Hip, Norton, Sundazed and Ugly Things. This book had 96 of them; I will provide the author with the info on the other four to help make the next edition more complete. There are some mistakes - wrong location, mis-spellings etc - but nothing that actaully reduces the value.

If you know a music nerd, this is the gift to get them.
