"Fire and Rain" tells the story of four iconic albums of 1970 and the lives, times, and constantly intertwining personal ties of the remarkable artists who made them. Acclaimed journalist David Browne sets these stories against an increasingly chaotic backdrop of events that sent the world spinning throughout that tumultuous year: Kent State, the Apollo 13 debacle, ongoing bombings by radical left-wing groups, the diffusion of the antiwar movement, and much more.
Featuring candid interviews with more than one hundred luminaries, including some of the artists themselves, Browne's vivid narrative tells the incredible story of how over the course of twelve turbulent months the '60s effectively ended and the '70s began.
Sean Runnette, an Earphones Award winning narrator, has also directed and produced more than two hundred audiobooks, including several AudieAward winners.He is a member of the American Repertory Theater company and has toured the United States and internationally with ART and Mabou Mines.His television and film appearances include Two If by Sea, Cop Land, Sex and the City, Law & Order, the award-winning film "Easter", and numerous commercials.
"Browne's engrossing account of this fertile but volatile period sets the standard by which comprehensive musical histories should be judged." ---BookPage
