The Sound of the City: Rise of Rock and Roll by Charlie Gillett
Charlie Gillett, a British
journalist, loves the music, and his passion is evident throughout The Sound
of the City. Yet the greatest strength of the book is the way Gillett tracks
the resistance of the music industry to early rock-and-roll, which was followed
(needless to say) by a frantic rush to engulf and devour it. When first
published ‘The Sound of the City’ was hailed as “has never been bettered
as the definitive history of rock” (The Guardian’). Now the classic
history of rock and roll, has been revised and updated with over 75 historic
archive photos. The text has been substantially revised to include newly
discovered information and it is now “the one essential work about the
history of rock n’ roll” (Jon Landau in ‘Rolling Stone’).
