Virgin Encyclopedias of Popular Music Series

543 paginas

"guia, The Virgin Encyclopedia 70..  increible libro de 543 paginas ..existencias limitadas...!! !Product details Hardcover: 544 pages Publisher: Virgin Books; Rev Ed edition (8 Aug 2002) Language English ISBN-10: 1852279478 ISBN-13: 978-1852279479 Here one may relive one's youth (or learn some history) from Abba down to singer-songwriter Warren Zevon. Sartorially the decade was one of extremes: compare the tartaned Bay City Rollers to the ridiculous hippieness of Wizzard, Kiss's comic-book style, Amanda Lear's disco leather decadence, Elton John's flamboyance and the austerity of the singer-songwriters. A particular pleasure is finding information on the more obscure hitmakers like R Dean Taylor (a solitary Canadian on Tamla Motown who gave us Indiana Wants Me & Gotta See Jane), UK experimentalists like Curved Air and East Of Eden, punk pioneers like X-Ray Spex and The Adverts. The more one reads, the more addictive this book becomes and the more you realize how rich and diverse the decade was. To think that side by side with the anger of the punk revolution there existed the hedonistic abandon of Disco -- the party of the 70s! Donna Summer, Boney M, MFSB, Sylvester and the P-Funkers are all here. There is also the Woodstock generation in the form of Matthews Southern Comfort, Don McLean, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and Melanie. Other folk artists include Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention. Megastars like David Bowie, Neil Diamond and the Bee Gees merit their many pages but it is also heartening to see little-known reggae acts like Bob & Marcia (The Pied Piper) and Dave & Ansil Collins (Double Barrel) getting a mention. By the way, anyone wants to dispute the fact that Bowie produced his best work in this decade? Think of 1975's Young Americans, 1976's Station To Staion and the electronic cycle of Low and Heroes. But the 70s was also the decade of the teenyboper and you'll find them here: The Partridge Family, David Cassidy, The Osmonds nd Leif Garrett. For sheer variety and the essence of pop, the 70s cannot be rivaled. Nmes like Dawn (Knock Three Times)evoke tender childhood memories. The entries are informative and a pleasure to read. Perhaps there could have been more extensive discographies. All in all a fascinating read for nostalgists, the music researcher and music lovers of all ages and persuasions.

The NPR Curious Listener's Guide to Blues

...existencias limitadas...!!!http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/article.php?id=17521Product Details Paperback: 288 pages Publisher: Perigee Trade (February 1, 2005) Language: English ISBN-10: 039953072X ISBN-13: 978-0399530722 Resumen: Blues (NPR Curious Listener's Guide). Examining the changing face of the genre from its beginnings at the end of the 19th century to its international popularity today, this book traces the social climate that inspired the blues and takes a look at the unmistakable influences that blues had on 20th-century music. Includes information on performances from Muddy Waters to Eric Clapton.National Public Radio has published "curious listener's" guides to a number of musical types, including classical, opera, folk, popular, and celtic. With its recent, "The NPR Curious Listener's Guide to Blues" (2005), NPR offers a sympathetic, thoughtful, and broad-based guide to a uniquely American and African American music. The author, David Evans, is Professor of Music at the University of Memphis where he has designed a program in ethnomusicology with a specific specialization in southern folk and popular music. He has written widely on the blues and received a Grammy in 2003 for his liner notes to a seven-CD collection, "Screamin' and Hollering the Blues, The Worlds of Charley Patton." Although the blues have received much popular attention in recent years, it is gratifying to see the increased amount of serious, scholarly study that the music is receiving. It is long overdue. Evans has written an introductory account of the blues that will, indeed, whet the appetite of the new listener, but he has done much more. He treats the music seriously, with an obvious love, and without stereotyping or hype. There is much to be learned from his book about the music, its history, its performers, and its place in American life. The "blues" are notoriously difficult to define or to categorize, but Evans stresses that "[a]bove all else, blues music is about conveying personal feeling and, in so doing, reaching others and establishing a sense of life-affirming solidarity." (p. 165) With all its learning, this book keeps the emotional, personal core of the music at its center. Evans also describes in succinct, non-technical language the formal characteristics of the blues, the use of blue notes and chordal patterns, and the various types of interplay in the blues between vocal and instrumental lines. A chapter titled "the Language of the Blues" offers good basic guidance not only to the blues but to elementary music theory as well. The early chapters of the book offer discussions of the origins of the blues near the beginning of the 20th century, and of its pioneer recordings. He discusses the varieties of the blues that have developed in its now century-long history, including the classic or vaudeville blues, country, folk blues, swing, and jump, electric blues, Chicago blues and much else through the appropriation of much of the blues sound by British and American rock and roll performers. Evans also offers three related chapters giving biographies of many famous blues artists, detailed discussions of fifty blues songs, chosen for their excellence and representative character, and fifty blues CDs. These songs and CDs are well-chosen and non-dogmatically presented. They will give the new listener a cross-section of the types of music and artists that have formed the blues. The lists will form the basis for endless listening and enjoyment and will encourage the new listener to explore the blues further. Evans's concluding chapter includes a guide to books, magazines and websites devoted to the blues. This book will appeal both to newcomers to the blues and to those who know and love the music. Most importantly, Evans shows the reader that the blues are not merely a product of "pop" culture, but rather are a serious, influential and passionate American music that will amply repay attention and study.
