SummaryJoin the Central Library’s Low Vision Readers Book Group for a discussion of “How the Beatles Destroyed Rock 'n' Roll: An Alternative History of American Popular Music" by Elijah Wald.
Book DescriptionAuthor and musician Wald contends that the Beatles and the "British invasion" of the 1960s and 1970s brought a racial split in American music and separated dance and studio sounds. Discusses recording techniques and sociological conditions that led to diverse styles such as ragtime, blues, country, rock, and soul.
