Title: Hollywood Eden

I just read Hollywood Eden. I endorse it because it gives Jan Berry the credit he deserves as a great producer and as a pioneer of the West Coast sound. The Jan and Dean Record was used as a reference. However. The author relies heavily on recollection of artists which results in a lot of BS as well. Like the whole thing about who else wrote Surf City. And the whole “Jan was an ass” thing. But overall I enjoyed it. It got me fired up for Mark’s new book which I can’t wait to get!!!

Well I wasn’t there. Maybe Dean wrote a word or 2. Roger too. But Roger was soooo upset his name was left off of Surf City that he immediately collaborated with Jan on Honolulu Lulu. Think about that
