STRANDED Rock and Roll for a Desert Island

Marcus, Greil (editor)

Alfred Knopf. Very Good. 1979. First Edition. Hardcover. 0394508289 . Ex-library book, but still in very nice condition - usual ex-lib type of markings. Library binding, jacket attached to book. Light edgewear to cover, a little moreso to bottom edge, light soiling outer edge of pages, back cover and occasional small spot within book. Interior very good, one page seen with small edge tear. 306 pages. ; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall; When rock critic Greil Marcus asked 20 other writers on rock what one rock-and-roll album they'd want to take to a desert island, the resulting 20 fervent essays by the likes of Dave Marsh, Lester Bangs, Robert Christgau, Nick Tosches, M. Mark, Jim Miller, Ariel Swartley, Langdon Winner, Ellen Willis, Joe McEwen, Tom Carson, Paul Nelson, Kit Rachlis etc. Became this engaging book. It's a brief but intense amusement to imagine spending the rest of your life under a coconut palm listening to The Kinks, The Eagles, Van Morrison or The Ronettes .
