Great book, Deanna. Thank you.
My first reaction? I quote the amazon.com editorial review of this book: "At 612 pages, the book will lag for readers with no interest in radio."
Somebody nailed that one. I agree; There's too much baloney about one local radio station, which I won't even mention because I personally am tired of hearing about it and don't want to contribute to its notoriety.
Suffice to say that there's a lot that's missing from "Rock 'n' Roll and the Cleveland Connection" mainly because the main thrust of the text evolves around Cleveland radio, and the constant stream of almost endless self-promotion surrounding a few personalities involved in the politics of the Cleveland music scene of the seventies and eighties. This book serves as yet another example of all that.
On a more positive note, the book is fairly well-written and has some nice pictures. While it's probably not a book that anyone will read from cover to cover, "Rock 'n' Roll and the Cleveland Connection" at over 600 pages does cover a lot of territory.
"Rock 'n' Roll and the Cleveland Connection" will probably appeal to a more conservative mainstream audience who remember the seventies and eighties music scene in Cleveland and wish to wax nostalgic. I'm sure that this book will be very popular in the Cleveland area.
