Joe Boyd Continues "To Cut A Zelig-Like Presence Through Music's Tapestry" With National Book Tour
Published January 30, 2007

Joe Boyd, the London-based producer and "Zelig of 60s music" (Kirkus Reviews) will introduce his acclaimed memoir, White Bicycles: Making Music in the 1960s (Serpent's Tail / Consortium) to US audiences on his national book tour, including stops in Memphis at the Folk Alliance, a Q&A at SXSW, an event at Joe's Pub in NYC and appearances in Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco and Portland.

Boyd, whose shortlist of credits include stage-managing Dylan at Newport, producing Pink Floyd's first single and installing them in his UFO Club (the heart of psychedelic London in 1967), discovering/producing Nick Drake and arranging the brief but intense marriage between pop music and British folk by way of Fairport Convention and the Incredible String Band, is that rare producer/avatar who commands an artist¹s loyalty. To music connoisseurs, Joe Boyd¹s imprimatur on the back of an album cover has always carried an air of quality and mystery. A sign of significance.

Brian Eno has endorsed White Bicycles as "a gripping piece of social history and the best book about music I've read in years, while Fred Mills' early review for Harp Magazine hails Boyd's memoir as, "the best music book I've ever read," and states that Boyd, "cut a zelig-like presence through music's tapestry."

For a listing of Joe Boyd's book tour dates, please check out the World Music Concerts section of Global Rhythm's website.
