Product Description

Review

"It introduces Canadian subject matter to its Canadian audiences. This strength is beyond major; it is phenomenal. Frankly, I was moved and will be thrilled to introduce it to my students." -- Norman Standield, UBC

"This is a truly comprehensive survey of popular music with much to offer the Canadian student in popular music. The (book's) strengths are its breadth, its attention to detail, and its concise language. Specifically though, the Canadian content and Canadian context make this an unusual and refreshing book." --Kirsten Yri, WLU

This is thorough coverage of the the History of Rock Music without the glitz and distraction of pop culture. It puts the development of the form into historical context and outlines the parallels with our developing society.

The book is in good condition for a text book for school. I would have liked to know that there was quite a bit of highlighting in it as well as tabs on it. Other than that it was a great price and came in great time! No complaints :)
