Leon Rosselson has spent a lifetime chronicling the times in song and envisioning the birth of a world after capitalism.
His book is an absorbing account of his journey from a childhood during the 2nd World War to lockdown during the pandemic, with lyrics from his songs to light up the way.
Also available, a compilation of all the songs mentioned in the text on CD or on a double LP. Both include all the song lyrics. The double LP has liner notes by Robb Johnson.

‘I am reading with immense pleasure, Rosselson’s memoirs, a slim but absorbing volume combining essays and those clever witty lyrics.’– Salut Live
