Even if Joe Boyd isn't a household name, he was an essential figure in the 1960s music scene. He began by producing blues/folk package tours, did the sound for Dylan's infamous electric show @ Newport, and settled in England, where he worked with early Pink Floyd and many of the key figures in the British folk movement. He is perhaps most famous for discovering and producing Nick Drake, but he also produced seminal albums for Fairport Convention, the Incredible String Band, and the newly resurgent Vashti Bunyan. Boyd was at the heart of a fascinating time in music and his memoir is full of rich anecdotes, related in a low-key, conversational style. Unlike so many books about the 60s, Boyd is refreshing in his avoidance of myth-making or potheaded nostalgia, offering a vivid, good-natured, concise portrait of the music, the musicians, and the context.
