A slice of history but….. the commentary has changrd.
This is an amazing collection of photographs! I read a copy in 1978 and the caption under the photo of Lloyd Price and his dad said “they don’t make jackets like Lloyd’s anymore” ( the jacket was straight 50s – 60s “cool”)
Bought this for my drummer boyfriend’s birthday. It is excellent. Covers a lot of information. He’s hard to buy for because he knows everything about rock & roll. This book puts it all in one place. Another person’s review of this item convinced me to buy it, and I was not dissappointed.
History of Rock
Great supplement to our history of rock home school class. It is very interesting and would be great to use as a textbook or for the rock enthusiast to read for pleasure.
Not what I expected

I had to get this for a class, at first I was very surprised because it seems like a bunch of magazine articles about a group or person who was influential. But, I got used to it and actually learned a LOT from it and that’s with only reading about half of it. It’s also in black and white and doesn’t have glossy pages, so do not be expecting anything too flashy.

This was purchased for my daughter for her college 70s and 80s Rock History Class. She loves music so much and this book was a great addition for her class and for her collection after the class was over.
A Hit About the Hits
For the trivia lover and the Rock Music lover. Exceptionally detailed and illustrated. A great gift for our friend who appreciates good reading.
Rock out with a fun book!
While hardly an impartial history, this is a fun and entertaining look at a broad range of popular music.
