Setting the scene with America's traditional folk of the early '60s, this book describes the sea of change that began in 1964 when the social consciousness of folk met the energy of rock. It concentrates on 1964-66, when the best, most popular, and most controversial folk-rock was created. The book explores the dizzyingly fast cross-fertilization of such giants as The Beatles, The Byrds, and Dylan; the passionate conflicts between folk devotees and folk-rockers; the sudden frenzy of the media; and the unforgettable music that was born. Turn! Turn! Turn! also examines how folk-rock continued to influence late '60s psychedelic rock, country-rock and the British scene, as well as its gradual, partial transformation into the singer-songwriter movement. Based on first-hand interviews with such visionaries as Roger McGuinn, Judy Collins, Donovan, John Sebastian, Arlo Guthrie, Janis Ian and dozens of others.

Turn! Turn! Turn! is devoted to the story of the first groundbreaking generation of folk-rockers, and particularly to the years 1964 to 1966, in which folk-rock originated, flourished, and peaked. It covers not so much folk-rock’s maturity as its birth and first full-force impact, stopping in mid-1966, when a motorcycle accident precipitated Bob Dylan’s withdrawal from the public eye for a year-and-a-half, leaving other folk-rock originators and newcomers to forge new directions all over the folk-rock map.
Richie Unterberger takes readers on the rest of folk-rock’s remarkable journey in this book’s forthcoming sequel, Eight Miles High: Folk-Rock’s Flight from Haight-Ashbury to Woodstock, also published by Backbeat Books, in 2003. Detailing the period from mid-1966 to the end of the 1960s, Eight Miles High portrays the mutation of folk-rock into psychedelia via California bands like the Byrds and Jefferson Airplane; the maturation of folk-rock composers in the birth of the singer-songwriter movement; the re-emergence of Bob Dylan and the inception of country-rock; the rise of folk-rock’s first supergroup from the ashes of the Byrds and Buffalo Springfield; the origination of a truly British form of folk-rock; and the growth of the live folk-to-rock music festival, from Newport to Woodstock.About the Author :
