It was this interview with Norman that led to us publishing his book ‘Shake It Up Baby!’ so it just goes to show.
We have had some absolutely fabulous reviews so far in the papers:
Fascinating, funny and gloriously evocative account…easily the best music book to hit the shelves in an age…as passionate as it is erudite, this is required reading for any wannabe writer
(Record Collector *****)
Detailed and illuminating memoir of his decade at the pop-press coal face…
Hip new journalistic memoir from Pop’s golden age…voluminous, anecdote-rich account of his extraordinary decade at the forefront of pop journalism
I used to say that the best books on the 60’s were written before 1970. Norman Jopling’s SHAKE IT UP BABY! breaks that thought. He writes about the 60’s pop boom as if he were still there – and he takes us back there. A triumph of time-travel !
