Top Customer Reviews
His chronicles of the late-Sixties, which sometimes just amount to a mindless litany of record releases, are written in choppy paragraphs and run-on sentences. Some bits of information turn up several times in the course of the book, as if Pollack wasn't aware that he was repeating himself,and his attempts at being "clever" with his words are painfully obvious and annoying.
The first part of the book is the easiest to get through. By part two, it's tough slogging. One of the chapters is called "The Joy of Segues" (referring to FM playlists), and it seems very ironic, given that Pollack segues back and forth in his writing like a stoned guy careening downhill on a sled. Yes, the book will jog your memory with names and songs that you hadn't thought of for years. But it's like wading through prickly bushes to get one or two berries. This is one book that I will never be tempted to re-read, believe me.
