Linda McCartney's Sixties: Portrait of an Era

Linda McCartney, Author Bulfinch Press $60 (176p) ISBN 978-0-8212-1959-1
Glee at the destruction of convention and morality, ``all that made America great,'' pervades these intense photographs by an entranced chronicler of the 1960s pop-music scene in America. McCartney early on filched an invitation to a Rolling Stones party concert invitation and soon became the main lensperson at Manhattan's Fillmore East and on the road with top groups--Beatles, Stones, Doors, Cream, Jefferson Airplane et al. The photos show McCartney to have been a talented photojournalist, but her subjects here are so busy breaking rhythmic barriers, assuming attitudes, striking poses and being ungroomed that they are pictorial in their own right. Her accompanying recollections, including those of life with husband Paul and the Beatles, are uncluttered and minimally worshipful. An important item for unreconstructed members of the Woodstock generation. (Oct.)
