Exotic Rock. Sam Lightner, Jr. Self-published. P.O. Box 591, Teton Village, WY, 83025. Color and black-and-white photos. 138 pages. $24.95.

Comment: Though Lightner’s coverage of each area seems scanty, half the world is included: Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Morocco, Greece, Norway, South Africa. There is some good travel advice on the way to the rock scenes. As on page 61, about Thailand. “Don’t accept any food on train or buses as there have been cases of people being drugged and then robbed while they slept. (There have also been cases of transvestite prostitutes putting drugs on their nipples, so don’t accept these either).” (JT)
