Editorial Reviews


Music-journalist Banister takes a look at Southern rock, digging into historical information to explain why he thinks these 100 songs are the best representation of the genre. Each song entry contains the original release information and several paragraphs of anecdotes and insight about not only the music, but also pop-culture details and trivia surrounding each song. Featured artists include the Allman Brothers Band, the Black Crowes, the Kentucky Headhunters, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and ZZ Top. Music fans will enjoy this volume (and the others in this series), which should find a home in most circulating collections. (Booklist)

Bannister’s work will serve as an excellent gateway to Southern Rock for those unfamiliar with the genre. (American Reference Books Annual)

[T]he song write-ups [in Counting Down Southern Rock] are brief ... making for a fast read but also making it convenient to set the book down when you want to take a break, which is a good thing because you'll be inspired to get up and put on your favorite Southern rock album. (antiMusic)
