5.0 out of 5 stars Truely amazing esstential reading for any true music fan!, 4 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: On Record: Rock, Pop and the Written Word (Paperback)
The book deals with music from all eras and focuses on how the music affects our culture including our life style and what we wear and so on. Simon Frith writes with a confident edge, almost suggesting that he was actually there for every second of every era taking in every note and soking up the vibes that were around at the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Start your pop music studies here, 13 Jun 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: On Record: Rock, Pop and the Written Word (Paperback)
Although some of the material in this book is becoming slightly dated, there is no doubt that a any student of popular music must read it from cover to cover. On Record is essetial in every aspect of pop music study, and should be the starting point to any thesis or dissertation on the subject. Simply presented and divided into clearly defined sections, the whole thing is clearly indespensible. I would not suggest that this is the only book on popular music that is of this importance, nor would I say that the more contemporary trends in popular music have been covered by the older arguments and theories, but 'On Record's' historical value is insurpassable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but no index, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On Record: Rock, Pop and the Written Word (Paperback)
No complaint about the seller - it came in good time. The complaint is worth the editor, as I like my books to have indexes for academic purposes. Good book though. Have used it for a bunch of different modules within my Commercial Music degree :)
