The Summer Of Love: The Inside Story of LSD, Rock & Roll, Free Love and the High Times in the Wild West

Author: Joel Selvin

Publication date: 1994


Some later editions have a quote from Garcia on the front cover: 'If you want to know how the San Francisco music scene developed, Joel tells you.'

Based on hundreds of interviews with key figures The Summer Of Love documents the period from the formation of the Charlatans in the Summer of 1965 to the disintegration of the Bay Area scene and the closing of the Fillmore in Summer 1971. The Dead, Airplane, Big Brother and QMS feature prominently throughout.
