5.0 out of 5 stars A must if you wat to remember the 70's and 80's., February 14, 2011
This review is from: The Boombox Project: The Machines, the Music, and the Urban Underground (Hardcover)
If you were alive in the 70's and 80's you remember the boombox. You may have been neck deep in the culture and blasted your neighborhood or you may have been one of those passers by angrily looking at hoodlums blasting their music over your peaceful stroll. Either way, Lyle Owerko has captured the culture that came before mp3s and ipods. This beautifully nostalgic look at boombox culture stands alone as a must have for anyone who lived through it or wants to know what it was. Captured in the pages Owerko takes us on a journey through Rock, R&B, Reggae, Hip Hop, Rap, Punk, and New Wave. The selected images document a world where the boombox is star. Owerko's photographs of the great boomboxes from ages past are more like portraits of people, each with personality and charisma. Beautifully designed by Jeff Streeper, The Boombox Project weaves this era into fun and perfect companion to any coffee table. Put down your Ipod, grab a copy, and relive the old days.
