In this unique exploration of rock and roll, Campbell and Brody take an evolutionary approach, giving students the whole picture of this vastly popular music and its inherent musical relationships. Beginning with the roots of rock, the authors proceed chronologically to discuss all rock styles and their influences, from '50s R&B up through the birth of new wave. This text sets itself apart with its treatment of rock as an integrated family of musical styles, inclusive view of the evolution of this music, and in-depth musical discussion.
