I confess that until fairly recently, I didn't know much of the music of Wings from the years that LJ was part of the band. I have been a Beatles fan since Ed Sullivan, and I knew and liked the Band on the Run album, and from LJ's time, I liked Back to the Egg and knew it to be an important, award winning record. But I know Laurence Juber as the state-of-the-art solo finger style acoustic guitarist that he is. I've heard Laurence play dozens of times. My respect of him comes from that oeuvre, and his ability to teach it. So, while I know that he played with Paul and Linda McCartney, Denny Laine, and Steve Holley in Wings, whenever I see LJ, that's not my frame of reference for him. However, after reading this new treasure of a book, I have a brand new appreciation of the life and work of one of the world's most creative people. You'll read of (and see) Laurence's early life in London, as a session player there, on through his time with Wings, learning from the man who is arguably the greatest creative force in mid-to-late 20th century popular music, and to his present work as Los Angeles session musician and solo artist and composer. You'll even learn what LJ himself considers to be his most important attribute as a guitarist. The photographs, which sat for years in shoe boxes until he undertook this project, are priceless. They are intimate views into the life and creative process of Paul McCartney, Linda, Denny, Steve, and Laurence.
The book is worthy of living in a prominent spot in your home, where you can pick it up often. I browse through it while listening to one of LJ's great solo recordings, and now, while listening to his contribution to Wings.
