In the Sixties: Illustrated
In 1962 Barry Miles was a student at Cheltenham art school. In 1969 he was running the Beatles’ Zapple label and living in New York’s Chelsea Hotel. In between, Miles was a major force in founding the UK’s counter-culture, and active in every significant underground event of the decade.
This expanded edition of In the Sixties illustrates Miles’ story using personal and long unseen images of London in the 1960s, including photographs and drawings from pre-Beatles Britain to the post-psychedelic era. Also included in this edition are sound recordings of interviews conducted by Miles with Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Pete Townshend in 1967, with Mick Jagger in 1968, and John Lennon in 1969—which was never published.

Original, intimate and previously unreleased interviews with John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Pete Townshend and Mick Jagger from 1967 to 1969.
The Classic edition of In The Sixties comes with a free download of excerpts from Miles’ original personal interviews with Lennon and Ono, McCartney, Harrison, Townshend and Jagger, while the Special edition includes over five hours of those interviews on one Super Audio CD, and is signed by the author.
