In order to understand Chess Records as reflectiive of a larger paradigm, Jones traces the origins of modern pop music in America back to immigrants from a certain region of the old world who were familiar with the oldest of professions. Looking at modern pop music world through this historical lens, it no longer seems odd that young starlets [harlots?] like Miley Cyrus are becoming increasingly sexually licentious. They may actually be going retro.
I'd recommend this book for anyone who wants to understand where the pop music industry came from and ultimately where has been going.
