Mystery Train: Images of America in Rock 'n' Roll Music: Sixth Edition (Paperback)
In 1975, Greil Marcus's Mystery Train changed the way readers thought about rock 'n' roll and continues to be sought out today by music fans and anyone interested in pop culture. Looking at recordings by six key artists--Robert Johnson, Harmonica Frank, Randy Newman,
the Band, Sly Stone, and Elvis Presley--Marcus offers a complex and unprecedented analysis of the relationship between rock 'n' roll and American culture. In this latest edition, Marcus provides an extensively updated and rewritten Note and Discographies section, exploring the recordings' evolution and continuing impact.
