Classic Albums That Changed My Life chronicles the inside story about the making of a dozen great albums, starting with the Beatles’ ‘White Album’ in 1968 to Elton John’s ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ in 1973. In each chapter, the recording process is discussed and the inspiration for each song is investigated but more importantly, the place that both the band and the album now hold in popular culture is fully explored.
This is an authoritative but affectionate look back at a time when hair was long, denim ruled and the daggiest guy at school could immediately be ‘cool’ if turned up to a party with the right record under his arm. Includes wonderfully evocative images of the featured albums.
