Editorial Reviews

Review


"Reads as enjoyably as a novel, moving swiftly between events and the effects on music and society. Superb conclusions at the end of each chapter and balanced discussions of business, technology, culture, lifestyle, and the impact of rock 'n' roll on history."--David Englert, Sam Houston State University


"The discussion of song forms was the clearest that I have read in any pop and rock text."--Tony Steve, Jacksonville University


"Covers topics and musicians not covered in other texts. . . . Easy-to-follow listening guides help students understand the structures of a variety of songs."--Clarence Hines, University of North Florida


"This book is distinguished by its clear writing and compelling argument that rock can provide a way of looking at history."--Patrick Warfield, University of Maryland


"I especially like the strong social history view that the book takes."--Kristian Twombly, St. Cloud State University
