'From the moment I opened this book, I did not put it down until I had checked out every photo, a reaction I would expect from every reader. This is not only a book you will be proud to own - it is one that you will display for all to see - Amazing.' - Beat Magazine
'While it's the spectacularly reproduced images with their intense colour saturation that provide the book's raison d'etre, Landau accompanies them with an informative text which includes profiles of the best known billboard artists of the era. In its own way a parallel history of the art of the album sleeve, this is also a fascinating history of 'lost' LA street art.' - --Shindig! (July)
"Landau never misses a chance to talk about the strip back in its heyday, though he can't help but mourn the passing of an era." - -- The Guardian
The Sunset Strip, circa 1967. Buffalo Springfield called it right: "There's something happening here what it is ain't exactly clear." What was happening then is now absolutely clear. Rock 'n' roll and the kids who lived it were coming of age right there on The Strip. And, as if to define the era, a few independent minds in the music industry posted giant, temporary monuments that said it all. Billboards. Bigger than life. Hand-painted homages to rock. The Doors led the way. It seemed that billboards would chronicle rock forever.
In ROCK 'N' ROLL BILLBOARDS OF THE SUNSET STRIP, author/photographer Robert Landau showcases these signs of the time, a time when rock was the most important music ever recorded, when youth, politics, and art merged to turn counterculture into mainstream culture.
