From Jazz Funk & Fusion To Acid Jazz

Here is a book recommendation for anyone who experienced the jazz explosion in the clubs in the seventies and 80's.It covers the culture that developed during this period through the eyes and ears of the people who were there.I am sure people who were not there themselves would find this a good read as it highlights lots of significant names and places that shaped the scenes we know today.
It proved to be a 10 year epic for dj and author Mark Cotgrove known to most of us as Snowboy.
Highly recommended very informative,playlists,pics etc from the period.
'Couldn't put this book down - there's a lot of history here!
A fine piece of work - respect to Snowboy for reminding me of a large chunk of my dj life'

  1. Got my copy early on (spelling mistakes and all). Absolutley devoured it. Great overview and insight into this scene from all parts of the UK. A must have.
