By the time we got to Woodstock : the great rock 'n' roll revolution of 1969 by Bruce Pollock( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 369 libraries worldwide
"1969 was a time of euphoria and freedom, revolution and retribution, moonwalks and Manson. By the Time We Got to Woodstock captures the frenzy of this insane, wonderful, and often frightening year in glorious, blistering fashion, placing the greatest rock 'n' roll ever made against the landscape of Age of Aquarius optimism, druggy hedonism, and militant indignation." "This was the year that saw more music-as-manifesto and rock-as-revolution than ever before. At one mad outdoor party after another - from Miami to Denver, and from Woodstock to Altamont - cracks in the promised hippie utopia quickly turned to canyons. This was the year that saw the Beatles go supernova while Bob Dylan hightailed it to Nashville. From the Byrds, Joan Baez, Jimi Hendrix, the Airplane, and Janis Joplin to the Velvet Underground, the Mothers of Invention, Funkadelic, and the Fugs, 1969 stands up as a decade-smashing anomaly in the annals of rock 'n' roll captured in this book."--Jacket

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 362 libraries worldwide
Who in this generation will ever forget years like 1958, when "That'll Be the Day" and "Teenager in Love" and "Yakety Yak" let the average privileged white kid imagine becoming as fearless as the rough-edged figures who made the records ... 1964, when Phil Ochs wrote about churches burning in Mississippi, and the Beatles arrived in New York with their portfolio of innocent love songs ... 1967, when LSD was legal, Cher was still with Sonny, and Joplin and Hendrix signed with the major labels ... 1972, when Roxy Music and David Bowie and Helen Reddy's "I Am Woman" made sexual redefinition the flavor of the year ... 1975, when baby boomers, experiencing their second childhood, fell under the spell of Donna Summer's "Love to Love You Baby," and Springsteen hit the covers of Time and Newsweek ... 1977, when the Ramones and the Sex Pistols set out to create a new generational Year Zero with their righteous three-chord attack ... 1981, when Big Brother turned out to be MTV, stuffing the collective memory bank with indelible video images ... 1985, when Madonna melded the teasing fifties with the feminist eighties in "Like a Virgin" ... 1990, when confrontational urban rappers and alienated suburban metalheads seemed to be carrying rock's protest tradition beyond the baby boomers' reach once and for all

A friend in the music business : the ASCAP story : the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers by Bruce Pollock( Book )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 309 libraries worldwide
On February 13, 1914, a group of the nation's most distinguished and popular songwriters gathered together in New York City to support the mission of ASCAP, a new organization for publishers and songwriters. A few years later, ASCAP received its mandate from the Supreme Court to collect royalties for the public performance of copyrighted material. Over the course of the next century, ASCAP has been as prominent a force for the advancement and nurture and financial well-being of songwriters as any record label or publishing outfit one would care to name. With a responsive board of directors made up entirely of songwriter/composer and publisher members, ASCAP has defended creators' rights at every turn against those who would seek to devalue music. Today, with copyright under renewed assault, its mission is as resonant and vital as ever, along with its relatively new role as a nurturer of the young artists who represent the future of music. Award-winning music writer Bruce Pollock explores the growth and changes within this complex society and its relationship to emerging technologies, in the context of 100 years of an ever-evolving music business, to see how ASCAP has become, for those who hope to make a living making music, now more than ever, "a friend in the music business."
