Mystery Train

by Greil Marcus - £20.00  Faber & Faber (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571323173 | ISBN 10: 0571323170

Greil Marcus's study of American rock 'n' roll is justly regarded as one of the most accomplished examples of contemporary music writing.
 
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 myth, landscape and oral tradition.
 
The result is an invigorating and wholly original study -- here in its revised, sixth edition -- that remains a high watermark in cultural criticism.
