Description: Emphasize the social and business sides of rock history Rockin' Out; Popular Music In America offers both a comprehensive history of rock and a clear presentation of its styles and forms. The text takes readers from minstrelsy, the invention of the phonograph, and the heyday of Tin Pan Alley to the sounds of post-9/11 culture and the promise of the internet. Reebee Garofalo and Steve Waksman offer an analysis and critique of the music itself as well as of how it is produced and marketed, including recent phenomena such as the rise of television idols, the proliferation of alternative sounds, and the influence of advances in digital production techniques. Steve Waksman, the text’s new co-author, has thoroughly revised each chapter. Updates include new research and more current literature. The sixth edition will also feature several new listening guides.
