9780394738277: STRANDED

In 1978, Greil Marcus asked twenty other writers on rock including Dave Marsh, Lester Bangs, Nick Tosches, Ellen Willis, Simon Frith, and Robert Christgau a question: What one rock and roll album would you take to a desert island? The resulting essays were collected in Stranded, twenty passionate declarations that, appropriately, affirmed the solitary and obsessive activity that rock listening had become. Here are salutes, elegies, thank-you notes, and love letters to records such as the Rolling Stones' Beggars Banquet , the Ramones' Rocket to Russia, Captain Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica, Something Else By the Kinks, and out-of-print classics by the Ronettes, Little Willie John, and Huey 'Piano' Smith; the whole is supplemented with Marcus's own invaluable annotated fifty-page discography, a Treasure Island” of rock and roll. Stranded remains a classic of rock and roll literature, and perhaps the best possible answer to the question: What one rock and roll book would you take to a desert island?

Review:

When rock critic Greil Marcus asked 20 other writers on rock what one rock-and-roll album they'd want to take to a desert island, the resulting 20 fervent essays by the likes of Dave Marsh, Lester Bangs, and Robert Christgau became this engaging book. It's a brief but intense amusement to imagine spending the rest of your life under a coconut palm listening to The Kinks, The Eagles, Van Morrison or The Ronettes.
