yeah, that was a great "renaissance" time for music, and the recording industry. My collection, both, LP's and CD's reflects most all the music you mention and beyond, up to now.
I guess we (in our little world here), in the L.A. suburbs, became especially entranced into "progressive" music (jazz, jazz-rock, jazz-fusion, R&B, rock), mostly from influences like Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Sly Stone, and graduated into stuff from the like's of Weather Report, Stanley Clarke, WAR, Billy Cobham, Jeff Beck, Chick Corea/Return to Forever, even Earth Wind & Fire, etc.,...Of course we all listened to the Stones, the Who, and more.........

yeah, that book illustrated quite a few "scenes" that, supposedly, referenced many specific area's, and people, around Los Angeles.
Funny you mention this because I remember being a teenager and that book ("Helter Skelter") was new and popular. Kid's at (high) school were talking about many parts (and images) in the book that would very clearly illustrate (or describe) streets and neighborhoods nearby (even in my neighborhood) where it was told that the Manson gang had driven through during those famous nights, either on the way to, or coming from the Hollywood Hills area (which is about 7 miles from me). These references became kind of like "real" ghost stories for kids in the L.A. area. I remember teachers would not allow that book in the class-room actually (because of the mature content). So it was "cool' if you snuck a copy around.
