"Campbell and Brody's book is unique in its perceptive and engaging musical discussions, which bring this music to life and connect it to social issues. The authors' analyses of examples transcend the cosmetic, superficial, and mundane: they offer detailed, clear guidance to help students hear the recordings in new ways."
"I haven't seen a rock and roll text more ably cover musical elements and rock instrumentation."

If you're interested in learning about this era, it's super easy to read. I would even suggest it as a gift for someone who is enthralled by this era. Very in-depth look to rock and its progression. Lots of background history on bands and singers. There's only so much information you can read online that's likely true...
I gave it 4 stars because I rented this book and the copy I received was beat to hell, but all the pages were there.
