The new release, "Book of Days '60s" by Harvey Solomon and Rich Appel is a pop culture delight for anyone who considers themselves to be trivia experts, or the wannabes who need a good reference guide to check their facts. Subtitled, "A Day-by-Day Look at the Pop Culture Moments That Made History," the reader is treated to a well-organized collection of facts from music, film, and TV that was important to everyone growing up in the baby boomer decade of choice. An intelligent presentation with superb and plentiful color and b/w photographs fill the pages, bringing the facts to life with ease.
Published by Metro Books, the hard cover volume includes a CD smpler with 7 favorite tunes that bring instant recall to mind. Hugo Montenegro's "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" and Roy Orbison's "Only the Lonely" are part of the 60s soundtrack included on the bonus disk.
On page 40, February 18th marks the day that The Buckinghams' hit, "Kind of a Drag" made it to the top of the national music charts.
