Smith Tapes, The (announced as 1969-1972 Speaks for Itself)
(41 items available)
Between 1969 and 1972, Village Voice "Scenes" columnist, WPLJ FM radio host, and cult figure Howard Smith got to the heart of the counterculture through personal conversations and hard-hitting interviews with the likes of Mick Jagger, Frank Zappa, Andy Warhol, and R. Buckminster Fuller. The Smith Tapes transcribes, for the first time, sixty-one of those recorded sessions, from an archive of more than 150 reels unearthed after more than forty years. Edited by documentary film writer and director/producer Ezra Bookstein, this book reveals the time capsule that Smith ingeniously captured, and contains raw and unscripted talks that take you right into the midst of a transformative cultural and musical explosion.
