"A grammar book loaded with insights and details of which, betcha, even the most hard-core rocker is oblivious." -- Dave McElfresh, Goldmine "[An] engrossing and truly educational work that treats its subject seriously while maintaining the sense of adventure that went into the sound's creation." -- Discoveries "A delightful book, covering selected facets of a large musical era in considerable and highly readable detail." -- Frank Oglesbee, Communication Booknotes Quarterly ADVANCE PRAISE "A thoughtful, compelling, and stimulating addition to the literature of popular music studies. Hicks engages the musical details of rock music exceptionally well, accounting for their production and interpreting their significance. We need more such work." --Robert Walser, author of Running with the Devil: Power, Gender, and Madness in Heavy Metal Music "A fresh and fascinating account of an important body of American music... Hicks's book rings true, much more than anything else I've read on the subject." --Charles Hamm, author of Putting Popular Music in Its PlaceFrom the Publisher:
Unlike their rock 'n' roll predecessors, many rock musicians of the mid-sixties came to consider themselves as artists, as self-conscious makers of a new sonic medium. "Sixties Rock" offers a provocative look at these artists and their innovations in two pivotal rock genres: garage rock and psychedelic music. Delving into everything from harmony to hardware, Michael Hicks shows what makes this music tick and what made it unique in its time. Now, available for the first time in paperback, this "angular portrait" of an essentially experimental music illuminates the art of rock in the 1960s.
