"Author Joseph Lanza is an expert’s expert on some of the more enigmatic corners of popular and unpopular culture… Lanza’s work is quirky and unique. His latest book Easy-Listening Acid Trip: An Elevator Ride Through ‘60s Psychedelic Pop covers a musical genre that most people have no idea even existed."

        -- Richard Metzger, Dangerous Minds

"The book is a wonderful look at the way that easy-listening and instrumental pop tried to stay vibrant in the second half of the '60s -- and it follows the way that easy artists of the time  were picking up the aesthetics of the younger generation in a variety of ways -- not just doing cover versions of songs by The Beatles and Stones, but also going for trippier artwork on their album covers, and using more unusual studio techniques in production -- all in ways that made for a huge legacy of very groovy records!" -- Dusty Groove
