Praise

“A fast-paced, fascinating tour of the tumultuous birth of the Canadian music industry, by an insider who knows the business and the personalities better than anyone else. Gripping, gritty and gracefully written — it doesn’t get better than this.”
—Robert Charles Wilson, Hugo Award-winning author of Spin
 
“Bernie Finkelstein is an able and charming guide through the beginnings of a music scene that most of us now take for granted. In this book, he moves Zelig-like through some of the most salient moments in modern pop history; never invasive, but never impersonal. A wild and true read.”
—Dave Bidini, author of On a Cold Road
 
“From the very beginnings of the music industry in Canada to the unfolding present, Bernie Finkelstein has been at the centre of the goings on. His unique perspective provides the framework for this book. On that frame hangs a wondrous array of stories both personal and public; encounters with figures known and unknown whose presence has shaped the music scene as we know it. This is must-read for anybody who wants an inside view of how we got where we are. Pour yourself a glass of wine and listen to Bernie tell his tale…”
—Bruce Cockburn
