The Illustrated History of Rock Music
Illustrated laminated boards. In matching dust jacket slightly chipped to head of spine. Lavishly illustrated throughout. *** First published in 1978. This is a first printing of the revised edition from 1984. ‘Music was never invented to be written about. It was invented to be listened to…’ writes the author in the epilogue. Still, this excellent selection of photographs gets you pretty close to the excitement of the music itself. Rock-n-roll was never just about the music and this books forms a wonderful accompaniment.
