前表紙
Open Road + Grove/Atlantic, 2016/06/13 - 256 ページ
From the rise of Bill Haley to the death of Jimi Hendrix, this account of music in the 1950s and 1960s is “the definitive history of rock ‘n’ roll” (Rolling Stone).
 
This is British music journalist Nik Cohn’s classic and cogent history of an unruly era—filled with outrageous tales and vivid descriptions of the music, and covering artists from Elvis Presley to Eddie Cochran to Bob Dylan to the Beatles and beyond.
 
From the father of what would become a new literary form—rock criticism—this is a seminal history of rock and roll’s evolution, including revisions and updates made for a new edition in the early 1970s.

Nik Cohn got in early with his history of rock and roll, published in 1969 (I think), although the artform survived until about 1984 before it choked on its own vomit. Enough old man's grumblings ... レビュー全文を読む

著者について (2016)

Written in 1968 and revised in 1972, Awopbopaloobop Alopbamboom was the first book to celebrate the language and the primal essence of rock 'n' roll. But it was much more than that. It was a cogent history of an unruly era, from the rise of Bill Haley to the death of Jimi Hendrix. And while telling outrageous tales, vividly describing the music, and cutting through the hype, Nik Cohn would engender a new literary form: rock criticism. In his book's wake, rock criticism has turned into a veritable industry, and the world of music has never been the same. Now this seminal history of rock 'n' roll's evolution is available once more—as riotous a spree as any in rock writing.
