"Bronson's critical judgment and distance, even from artists he admires, offer an intimate and insightful snapshot capturing a unique moment in American pop that for some us proved, sadly, all too fleeting."
--Joel Bellman, LA Observed
"Bronson's passion for the music is evident... and it's contagious."
-- Pop Culture Classics
"His follow-up to 2013's The Rhino Records Story recalls those formative years, beautifully capturing that time in the early 70s before the business became corporate, describing gigs, records and interviews in fervent detail, beautifully evoking 70s London and even throwing in chapters on Granny Takes A Trip and pirate radio."
--Kris Needs, Record Collector (UK)
"The names and adventures fly by page-by-page and if you didn't know it was all true, you might think it impossible..."
..".an enjoyable visit to bands of an era that haven't always gotten the journalistic attention that they deserve."
"This is an excellent piece of work, and is highly recommended."
--John Tobler, Rock's Backpages
"Bronson's writing is easy without being dumbed-down, and packed with anecdotal detail. Music history buffs should investigate. Vividly brought to life."
--Andy Morten, Shindig!
"Full of entertaining and sometimes penetrating anecdotes from a true fan."
--Richie Unterberger, Ugly Things
"For both contemporaries and younger readers, this book is indeed an excellent time capsule of the 1960s and 1970s and its popular music."
--Jan-Christopher Horak, UCLA Film & Television Archive
