Hostage to the Beat: The Auckland Scene 1955-1970
By Roger Watkins

From 1955 - 1970 dozens of Auckland venues throbbed to the beat that rocked a generation. For those fifteen dizzy years bands that made it in Auckland could legitimately say they had arrived. This collection brings together Auckland's finest, many nationally (and internationally) famous, in a survey of bands and performers on the Auckland scene during that time.

As the author says'...this is a dipping book: you won't find any detailed analysis of performances or recordings here, just a record of who made this the most exciting era in Auckland's music history. Get dipping.'
