Just for the Love of It celebrates the musicians and bands who are such a part of Penang's rich musical heritage and highlights how this music has been so integrally woven into the wider tapestry of Penang's growth. It tells of the factors that influenced the popularisation of music in the 1930s to 1960s, including the role of radio, cinema, TV, venues, commerce and fashions. Vibrantly illustrated, beautifully designed with a free CD, Just for the Love of It presents this fascinating story of Penang in a creative, lively, and utterly engaging style.

Book Description SIRD, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, 2015. Soft cover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. Since Penang became a UNSCO World Heritage site in 2008, there has been a considerable effort to preserve and remember the history of the well-to-do, who could afford, and often intended, to construct a legacy that would stand the test of time. The history of less wealthy Penangites tends to attract less interest, probably because what they made and consumed was more ephemeral. This book at last celebrates the life blood of a wider section of the community, popular music. Packed with anecdotes, pictures and advertisements of the time as well as detailed research and a 24 track CD, this book provides a more vibrant connection with the past than most other books written on Penang's history. 221 pages. Please see the scan of the contents page and CD track list for further details. 1.2 kg.
