David GatesFor a modest-sized book…Love Goes to Buildings on Fire digests a remarkable quantity and range of material…Mr. Hermes covers not just the musicians…but also the taste-making critics…and the radio disc jockeys…who helped put them over. He fails to touch on the twisted post-bluegrass invented by the likes of banjo player Tony Trischka—a New York sub-subculture that mirrored the higher-profile upheavals in jazz, rock and Latin music—but he hasn't missed much else…His sympathy and affection for artists fighting to make their way from the margins to the center and for an era stuck between the parentheses of history comes through on every page.
