When Reading Really Rocked

When Reading Really Rocked: The Live Music Scene in Reading 1966–1976, by Adrian Moulton, Mike Warth and Austin Matthews
Two Rivers Press

When Reading Really Rocked relives the decade when Reading’s music scene turned itself up to 11 and really started to rock. A hugely well-informed and entertaining account of live music between 1966 and 1976, from the emergence of psychedelia to the dawn of punk, it covers the early years of the Reading Festival, lost and much-missed venues, local heroes and year by year accounts of the bands and musicians that played in Reading.
