Summary
Rock. Disco. Soul, Jazz. Folk. Funk. The 1970s were as varied as they were exhilarating. Corbett transports us to this thrillingly tumultuous era through a playful exploration of its music. Song by song, album by album, he shows that the music scene of the 1970s was as varied as it was exhilarating. His essays allow readers to dip in and out of the decade at random or immerse themselves completely in Corbett's chronological journey. -- adapted from jacket
