Summary:
For fifty years, pop music was created and consumed like this: you heard a record on the radio, or read about it in a music paper; you bought it on Saturday; you lent it to, or taped it for, a friend; and they reciprocated with another record. This book covers the birth of rock, soul, punk, disco, hip hop, indie, house and techno.
