5.0 out of 5 stars Britain's musical heritage in 50 songs, 19 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The People's Songs: The Story of Modern Britain in 50 Records (Paperback)
Once again , Maconie demonstrates his wide ranging knowledge of all things musical and for anyone who has been buying 'records' over the last few decades this is an essential read. Whether your tastes are eclectic or more specific, it is difficult not to be totally involved as he chooses 50 songs reflecting Britain's history. Part of the pleasure is of course nostalgic but for younger readers who have never experienced the excitement and sheer joy of listening to a new release at their local record store, they will probably learn more about modern Britain and its musical history than anything they may learn at school.
You may not agree with some of the choices but that only enhances the read and its difficult not to start composing your own list (mine would include 'Are You Sure ', 'What Do You Want', 'Blue Moods', 'Sebastian')
Not everyone will be familiar with every song but don't let that put you off-I'm sure there will be CD eventually!
