Mystery why no-one's reviewed it before!,
This review is from: Mystery Train: Images of America in Rock 'n' Roll Music (Paperback)
...This is a tremendously influential book about Elvis, Robert Johnson, Sly Stone, The Band and Randy Newman as American legends, putting them into the context of the unwritten history and mythology of the frontier, the riverboat, and the Appalachian mines. Later on Marcus got a bit too academic and obscure for this reader's taste (e.g. in 'Lipstick Traces') but this is the business. If you are remotely interested in America or in rock music, there's plenty for you here. Buy it!
