NY: Schirmer Books, 1998
John Platt's excellent book is now out of print but a must get for hard core fans. It covers there full history with emphasis on the Gears sessions. John was a music journalist in the UK in the mid-late 60's and personally new each of them. He is still in close contact with Jack & Ginger.
The book is well researched and clears up the confusion over the Gears sessions dates. The pre-Cream and early days are also well covered.
