A great book! I love it!,
This review is from: Rock Atlas USA (Paperback)
I am fortunate enough to have been given a copy of `Rock Atlas USA' for Christmas. Having now had some time to look through it I must say I think it is a great book. I already have a copy of David Roberts' UK `Rock Atlas' and this is an ideal companion, and even has several improvements. I always felt the UK book would have been better if it had an index, but there's now a comprehensive 8-page artist index in this `Rock Atlas USA' book ranging from Paula Abdul through to ZZ Top. With colour photographs on almost every page covering more than 650 music-related locations across all 50 states of the USA there can't be much of musical interest that has been missed. It has clearly been comprehensively researched and will take you from locations as diverse as Elvis Presley's barber shop in Memphis to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland. If you want to know more about music-related locations in the USA, whether they are pop/rock/blues/folk, then this book will certainly be of interest to you.
