Review:

The rise of rock-and-roll--in a nutshell, with particular attention paid to the business side of the equation. Charlie Gillett, a British journalist, loves the music, and his passion is evident throughout. 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.

About the Author:

Charlie Gillett's books include five volumes of Rock Files, Making Tracks, and Rock Almanac, and he has written for Rolling Stone and New Musical Express. He is a disc jockey in London, and runs Oval, an independent record label and publishing company. By playing their first demos on the air, he was instrumental in launching the careers of Elvis Costello, Graham Parker, Dire Straits, and others.
