Joel Selvin's book...is a deeply researched, minutely detailed, account of the event as it unfolds, occurs and concludes; and as a result comes to conclusions much greater than historical myth or a 'documentary' film can portray...This book is definitely worth a read, and it is extremely well researched. -- -- AllMusicBooks.com "Meticulous research, evocative detail, and a brave conclusion-exactly what a history book should be." -- -- Lee Child, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Jack Reacher series "Boy did I live in a bubble-or something. I had no idea the extent of bruising under the melting rainbow. Selvin is revealing our tricky gestation in the weird womb of sixties rock. Frightening." -- Grace Slick, member of Jefferson Airplane "An incisive account of the most infamous concert debacle in rock history...This book provides context and perspective, showing the sea change in rock that was taking place as the Rolling Stones attempted to reassert themselves amid the increasing dominance of San Francisco psychedelia and the spirit of Woodstock...Compelling." -- -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "[A] methodical history... Selvin's presentation of Altamont busts the myth of innocence lost; in fact, Altamont just made the reality harder to ignore." -- -- Publishers Weekly "It was worse than you think. A lot worse...[A]n account that moves at movie pace, Selvin cuts through woolly cop-out rhetoric, offering clarity and detail...Altamont was a tragedy in the classical sense-a disaster born of hubris and folly-and Selvin nails every last shred of both." -- MOJO Magazine A fascinating account of the festival and its repercussions, this is also a cultural historical portrait of the West Coast rock scene, a history of the bands involved, and of the counterculture itself. Will be of interest to rock and pop culture fans. -- -- Library Journal
