Where Have All the Pop Stars Gone? - Vol. I

Where Have All the Pop Stars Gone? -- Vol. 2

The year 2009 marked the 40th anniversary of what was probably the single-most defining event of the '60s generation - the Woodstock Music and Art Fair in Bethel, New York.  This concert, which drew an estimated 500,000 people, was the brainchild of songwriter/producer Artie Kornfeld, who, along with Mike Lang, brought the vision to profound reality.  In his new book, The Pied Piper of Woodstock, Artie shares his story and memories of this historic happening.  Click on the graphic below to order your copy!

Always Magic in the Air:  The Bomp and Brilliance of the Brill Building Era, by Ken Emerson, is a book I recommend so highly that I gave it its own page here on Oldies Connection.  The book covers the lives and careers of seven of New York City's legendary songwriting teams from the 1950s and early 60s.  Definitely worth a read!
Ditto for Where Have All the Pop Stars Gone -- Volume 1.  Check out this cool book by Marti Smiley Childs and Jeff March, which is full of info on and quotes by your favorite artists from the '50s and '60s!
Now available - Volume 2!
