More About Rock 'n' Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip by Robert Landau; Frans Evenhuis
 
 
 
Overview
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.
