Overview

From bill Haley to the Beatles, pink Floyd to police, it looks at their lives, their music, their careers and at their fans, the teenagers, their fashions and how they spent their time. Since the '50s popular music has had a tremendous impact on modern culture, not only on the young, but throughout society. These books explore how.

1970s Pop brings together the greats of the decade when teenagers, long freed from the constraints of sharing their parents’ tastes, could explore new musical styles and the industry split into many directions.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Gr 5-9-Each of these offerings presents a one-page introduction to the popular music of a decade, followed by general overviews of the careers of a dozen musical groups or prominent individuals. Several color or occasionally black-and-white photos are included on each double-page spread, along with a list of the artists' best-known recordings. Each volume concludes with a brief gazetteer that summarizes the musical trends of the decade. Both decades are represented primarily by men. Although there is insufficient material on any one artist for anything other than a very brief report, these attractive entries will be popular for browsing.-Ginny Gustin, Santa Monica Public Library, CA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
