Rockabilly music in perspective
on 8 September 2010
Having listened to a lot of rock and rockabilly music over the years, it was very rewarding to get a 'face' on a lot of the virtually unknown artists. It is amazing how many of the 'unknowns' that Max have managed to find, or at least document. I particulry liked the way he managed to group artists and styles together; this made it a very easy book to read. The only reason for 4 stars is the lack of an index, which makes it hard to find a specific performer. Apart from that that, the book is by far one of the best music books I have read.
And don't forget to get the ACE CD 'soundtrack', it also have some pleasant surprises on it.
