New Ebook - The Heeey Baby Days Of Beach Music


New Ebook - The Heeey Baby Days Of Beach Music magazine cover

Word just in about a new Ebook version of 'The Heeey Baby Days Of Beach Music', details follow below

Greg Haynes’ massive 13 pound book—THE HEEEY BABY DAYS OF BEACH MUSIC-- chronicling stories of the bands, venues and times that were the late 1960s is now available as an eBook!  It is available through Ebay see belwo for the link

First published in hardback in 2006, the coffee-table sized book has been out of print since 2009.  The thumb drive version contains a new Epilogue that lists the later released CDs 15-17 as bonus content.  The eBook contains 557 pages and over 800 photographs. 

In late 2001, after spending over 30 years reminiscing about those few years he had as a band promoter in the late 1960s, Greg Haynes realized that if someone didn't make a permanent record of the unforgettable music, times, and events of those days in the Southeast, the memories would be lost forever. What started as a book to highlight the most popular bands ended up including groups that made the Beach Music genre a significant music form. By the time Greg wrapped up The Heeey Baby Days of Beach Music, every state in the Southeast that had a shoreline was in the book. Greg's retrospective, he says, "is not be a complete anthology of the party bands of the South in the '60s; but I believe we have achieved a fantastic overview of the most significant acts of the era and many of the lesser-known acts as well."

The complete eBook on a handy USB thumb drive via First Class U.S. Mail for $29.95 +$3.19 postage and handling. You can now re-live the memories and see all the valuable (and now, many long-lost) images of the era on your laptop, computer, or tablet.

Truly remarkable book. 

It does say on the listing they may not ship to the UK and to contact the seller.  Shame they can't set up a download?

I was discussing this with Chris Jones a couple of nights ago who was involved in the converting the book, about options to make it more accessible to overseas (ie a straight digital download as you mentioned). There are a few issues around the size of the file for digital selling on platforms and one or two other issues. I suggested a couple of options and they are keen to work through the tech / logistics. In the meantime as you say it does mean more people should hopefully be able to access what is a fantastic reference book and won't take up the whole of people's shelf space as my daughter demonstrated a few years ago!

It's 2022 and they're selling an ebook on a USB drive. The mind boggles.

It's a fantastic book. Someone should re-publish it instead as a regular size book with normal size lettering.

Sold my copy some years agao, the size was great, but I just don't have a coffee table in my front room big enough for it, some one should re-publish it in a regular size.  Great idea 🙂

That would be the ideal scenario, but a complete revision from an (author and) editorial perspective would be a mammoth undertaking and likely take years.
