Greil Marcus’s study of American rock and roll is universally acclaimed as the benchmark work of modern rock criticism. Using a handful of artists – a brace of bluesmen, The Band, Sly Stone, Randy Newman and Elvis Presley – Marcus illuminates and interprets the American Dream in rigorous prose touching on the myth, landscape and oral tradition of the continent. This comprehensive, revised edition of a milestone achievement in the effort to establish rock and roll as a fit subject for serious cultural criticism, includes a new preface by the author.
