They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world’s
A sunny day, oh yeah
I got a Nikon camera
I love to a photograph
So mama, don’t take my Kodachrome away

Written in a time when the famous Kodachrome films were still in circulation (1973), the uniqueness of the films were well characterized in these lyrics.
This fall, Brooklyn based publisher powerHouse Books will launch a new book, 'Kodachrome Memory', that captures a selection of images that reveal the real America throughout the seventies and eighties - naturally shot with Kodachromes. As summer is still in progress, a preview is available online before it will hit the stores.
