My Pack Pages – The Music Book Club 1:3

Visit England Tourism Superstar Finalist 2022 Adam Scott-Goulding writes…

Welcome to episode 3 of My Back Pages!

In the first two episodes of this series we looked at Bob Dylan Troubadour Tales and David Mitchell’s Utopia Avenue. Catch-up with those episodes here…

Ep.1 Troubadour Tales Bob Dylan In London

Ep.2 Utopia Avenue by David Mitchell

In episode 3 I’m taking a look at one of my all-time favourite music books – Year Of Wonder by Clemency Burton Hill. It’s a guide-book, it’s a history book, it’s a love letter and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did

If you’ve read the book and want to share your thoughts, please drop me a line or leave a comment at the end of this post – and I’m always keen to hear your recommendations for music books too.

As usual, keep in touch and I look forward to seeing you on the pavement or on Zoom for a London Music Tour very soon

Hatchards. The most loveliest, the most special-est, the most posh-est bookshop in town.

First and foremost it’s a lovely shop. Second their events and signings are tantamount to a rolling festival of literature in miniature.

But what puts it head-and-shoulders above all the others is the wrapping – crisp brown paper and signature ribbon. There is no more special gift in London than a book wrapped from Hatchards.

Keep up with all their literary events here:
