  • This was a great read a few dozen music geeks including such noteworthies asPeter Bagge,George Pelecanos,Rick Moody,Richard Meltzer, and GoodReads own Tosh Berman write up some overlooked records as if the fate of the rapidly dissipating sonic tempest depended on it Most of the writers do a convincing job of describing why the record is groovy without overselling it or endeavoring, Chuck Eddy style, to pervert a canon Canon what canon All of the essential genres are represented disco Sylvester, [...]

  • Besides writing two little essays for the book on Sparks and The Honeycombs I also love the premise of the book which is a series of writers writing about their favorite band or artist s album that went under the radar for some reason Always argumentive and always fun, with passionate insights why they love a certain type of music by a certain type of artist


  • A fun guide to extremely rare albums Even as a fan of the obscure, I was unfamiliar with damn near every album profiled in this book The contributors vary, and some suggestions seem like they were picked on a whim, but overall there s enough interesting picks here to keep rock snobs interested.
