The birth of folk rock comes to life in Wounds to Bind: A Memoir of the Folk Rock Revolution, Jerry Burgan's unforgettable memoir of the pre-psychedelic 1960s. As a naive folksinger from Pomona, California, Burgan would find himself thrust in his teenage years to the forefront of the counterculture and its aftermath. The Rolling Stones, The Byrds, Bo Diddley, Otis Redding, The Righteous Brothers, The Ohio Players, Paul Revere & The Raiders, Herman's Hermits, Judy Henske, Barry McGuire, and the Kingston Trio all make appearances in this tale told by the cofounder of We Five, the San Francisco electro-folk ensemble that soared to the top of the charts with its recording of the million-selling You Were On My Mind.
When not performing with We Five, the 1960s folk-rock group that bridged the gulf between Peter, Paul & Mary and The Jefferson Airplane, Jerry Burgan and his wife, Debbie, appear in Folk Songs & Stories, a show built on the Americana that shaped him, blended with anecdotes about how the music of the past evolved into the forms we know today. His first solo CD, Jerry Burgan: Reflections, Songs & Stories, on the Global Recording Artists label, is based on material from his show. Alan Rifkin is a former contributing editor to Details and L.A. Weekly and has written for The Los Angeles Times, Premiere, The San Francisco Bay Guardian and Black Clock. His short-story collection, Signal Hill (City Lights), was a finalist for the Southern California Booksellers Award in Fiction. He teaches creative writing at California State University, Long Beach.
