Review “I really appreciate the historical approach that David Brackett utilizes in The Pop, Rock, and Soul Reader. I think that students get a different perspective by reading rock’s history ‘in the time’ written by people as it occurred. Students enjoy this; it demonstrates that history is a process.”–Edward Whitelock, Gordon State College”The range of The Pop, Rock, and Soul Reader is excellent. My students enjoy this book because the readings are manageable and engaging. The headnotes give enough context for students to be able to make sense of the issues raised by the readings. This is the strongest primary source reader on popular music available.”–Gregory Weinstein, Davidson College About the Author David Brackett is Professor of Musicology at McGill University.
