White Bicycles: Making Music in the 1960s

by Joe Boyd
£11.99   paperback  Serpents Tail (2006)

White Bicycles: Making Music in the 1960s by Joe Boyd Joe Boyd's first proper job was bringing Muddy Waters to Britain in 1964. When Dylan went electric at Newport the following year, Boyd was the stage manager.
His first session as a record producer was Eric Clapton's original Crossroads.
A year later, he had produced Pink Floyd's first single and installed them in his UFO Club, the heart of psychedelic London in 1967.
With the help of the Incredible String Band, Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention, he arranged the brief but intense marriage between pop music and British folk.
He discovered, produced and managed Nick Drake.
He loved the Swedish songwriters he heard on a trip to Stockholm in 1970 - two years before they created ABBA - but not enough to turn down a job in California where he produced soundtracks for Deliverance and A Clockwork Orange and the definitive documentary on Jimi Hendrix.
 
He lived - and helped shape - the Sixties... and he remembers it.
