The latest from the songful mind and memory of David Hadju, who remains
in the long list of music critics, one of the best at keeping his head in the clouds
and his feet firmly on the ground.
Each of his books — whether on the jazz world; Bob Dylan, Richard Farina and the
orbit of American folk music, are rich in portrait and analysis
steeped in enriched storytelling. In this new book on pop music at all
its staggered levels, he shows a knack for historical research
as well as rekindling his childhood.
