Rock and Roll: An Introduction
ROCK AND ROLL: AN INTRODUCTION, 2nd Edition has been completely reconceived and rewritten, to take advantage of online delivery of recorded music. The discussion in this edition is even more focused on rock as music and stresses perceptive listening. This in turn permits more extensive discussion of stylistic connections and contrasts and ways in which the music reflects and shapes society and culture. An extensive and representative play list of 115 rock-era songs is discussed.
