About the Author

Harold Bronson co-founded the Rhino Records label, and co-ran the company with Richard Foos for 24 years. Rhino has been considered the best reissue label in the world, and for a number of years was awarded label of the year--among all the labels in the music industry--by the record retailers organization NARM. During the Clinton administration they received a special, corporate citizenship award from the Dept. of Labor as a reflection of how well they treated their employees. He oversaw the Rhino Books division as well as Rhino Films, executive producing the Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas and Why Do Fools Fall In Love feature films, among others. In his twenties, Bronson wrote about pop music for the Los Angeles Times, L.A. Free Press, Rolling Stone and various music magazines. Bronson's last book, The Rhino Records Story, was published by Select Books in October 2013.

Reviews

"Bronson's account of his early love of the music is personable and entertaining." --Booklist "Bronson's critical judgment and distance, even from artists he admires, offer an intimate and insightful snapshot capturing a unique moment in American pop that for some us proved, sadly, all too fleeting." --Joel Bellman, LA Observed "Bronson's passion for the music is evident... and it's contagious." -- Pop Culture Classics "His follow-up to 2013's The Rhino Records Story recalls those formative years, beautifully capturing that time in the early 70s before the business became corporate, describing gigs, records and interviews in fervent detail, beautifully evoking 70s London and even throwing in chapters on Granny Takes A Trip and pirate radio." --Kris Needs, Record Collector (UK) "The names and adventures fly by page-by-page and if you didn't know it was all true, you might think it impossible..." --Analog Planet ..".an enjoyable visit to bands of an era that haven't always gotten the journalistic attention that they deserve." --Houston Press "This is an excellent piece of work, and is highly recommended." --John Tobler, Rock's Backpages "Bronson's writing is easy without being dumbed-down, and packed with anecdotal detail. Music history buffs should investigate. Vividly brought to life." --Andy Morten, Shindig! "Full of entertaining and sometimes penetrating anecdotes from a true fan." --Richie Unterberger, Ugly Things "For both contemporaries and younger readers, this book is indeed an excellent time capsule of the 1960s and 1970s and its popular music." --Jan-Christopher Horak, UCLA Film & Television Archive
