9780140147209: Mystery Train: Images of America in Rock 'n' Roll Music

The third revised edition of rock 'n' roll music in America.

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

Review:

More than 20 years after its initial publication, Mystery Train remains one of the smartest, most provocative books ever written about rock-and-roll. Marcus puts his subjects--which include Robert Johnson, Elvis Presley, The Band, Randy Newman, and Sly Stone--into their proper context, which is the culture-at-large. He makes you understand why these musicians matter, and what they've contributed to the American imagination. In his introduction, Marcus confesses that he's no longer "capable of mulling over Elvis without thinking about Herman Melville"--to the benefit, I might add, of both parties.

About the Author:

Greil Marcus was one of the original staffers atRolling Stone. He teaches at the New School in New York and lives in California.
