From The Rock and Roll Report comes news about an interesting new book on Canada's musical roots.

"If you are looking for a fantastic history of the early Canadian rock and folk scene, a good place to start would be Before The Gold Rush: Peace, Love And The Dawn Of Canadian Sound by Nicholas Jennings. Set primarily in the Yorkville neighborhood of Toronto (Canada’s answer to Haight Ashbury), “Before the Gold Rush” tells the interwoven tales of folkies like Ian and Sylvia Tyson and Gordon Lightfoot against long forgotten rock and roll bands like Luke and the Apostles, Stitch in Tyme and Kensington Market."

And if you're curious, check out the origin of the book's title -- Neil Young's After The Goldrush album.

Includes the story of Rick James and Neil Young. More of review and other news on The Rock and Roll Report
