LAUREL CANYON The Inside Story of Rock and Roll’s Legendary Neighborhood

by | Read by Lloyd James

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Baby Boomers aren’t the only ones who will appreciate this account of one of rock and roll’s most famous L.A. neighborhoods, home to Jim Morrison, Joni Mitchell, and Carole King, among others. This production should also appeal to any reader eager to study artistic flashpoints and to understand how artistic breakthroughs—whether the unique harmonies of the Mamas and the Papas or the dissonant chord progressions of Frank Zappa—are sometimes grounded in multigenerational influences. Narrator Lloyd James is no stranger to nonfiction about the music business. His crisp tenor voice also served him well as the narrator of biographies of Kurt Cobain (HEAVIER THAN HEAVEN) and Jimi Hendrix (ROOM FULL OF MIRRORS).
