The saying goes, if you remember the 60s you weren't there. Another saying is, a picture is worth 1,000 words. In the case of Jim Marshall's photography, a picture is worth a million words. Even if you don't remember the 60s, his photographs are the time capsules to that magical renaissance time. This has never been more evident that in Marshall's new book from Omnibust Press, Trust

For the first time, his color photographs are featured in this coffee table book which showcases such diverse artists as Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, B.B. King, The Byrds, John Lee Hooker, Joan Baez, Fred Durst, Matt Sorum, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Leon Russell, The Buffalo Springfield, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, and Led Zeppelin, to name a few.

There is so much visual history in Trust that the reader is drawn into these moments, which are annotated by Mr. Marshall with a sense of the event as well as its contemporary significance. Marshall spent hours, days, and weeks with his subjects, getting to know the ins and outs of these highly talented artists, which gives this collection of photographs (and all his work) an intimacy which is rarely found in today's digital age. it's no wonder his work is on display at the Smithsonian Institute.

For anyone with an interest in the last half-century of music, musicians, and the rich tapestry of culture, this volume is an absolute must. For the newcomer, Trust is an exciting virtual experience which will deliver hour upon hour of page turning entertainment and education. A perfect stocking stuffer for all!
