    Sylak: These two publication complement eachother beautifilly. Both are full of candid photographs that fell strangely timeless and at the same time hauntingly distant, like a dream trapped inside a bottle.

This is a truly beautiful book which captures perfectly the atmosphere (as much as any book can) of the early free music festivals of the early 70s. Jeremy Sandford's text, part manifesto / part chronology, perfectly complements Ron Reid's iconic photography to a ratio of roughly 1:5, making this a photography book with well over a hundred quality b/w and colour photographs, many of them full or double page blow ups, and each one a masterpiece in itself.
I love the two candid shots of a young Glenn Tilbrook and Maxine Barker (uncredited) on page 26; and the double page b/w Silhouette of the couple on pages 12-13 because they invoke a certain atmosphere for me.

I really can not praise this book enough. Find a copy somewhere and cherish it! ( )

Epigraph
'A thousand hands were clapping Voices were all singing everybody's Love was turning on....'
Dedication
First words
'...Some say that the most important purpose served by a pop festival is that it provides a test bed for the working out of the running of some future society....'
Quotations
"Dylan's appearance had been super-hyped to the extent that even if he had levitated, produced stigmata and electric bolts from his finger tips, it would have been a let-down."
"DJ Jerry Floyed was arrested and fined £25 for insulting behaviour, after pointing out the numerous narcs to the audience, calling one of them a 'ginger-haired pig' and alleging that said pig had the pox."
"'What is your name ?' A policeman, wearing a bright blue anorak and sandles asks someone quietly smoking a joint outside his tent. 'My name is Mandrax Butterfly.' 'Mr Butterfly, I must request you to accompany me to the police station for questioning.'"
