Description
Mid-1970s New York City was a unique hotbed for new musical styles—punk, disco, rap, and salsa—and the reinvention of contemporary classical and jazz. Rolling Stone and NPR contributor Will Hermes was there for it all, and this is his anecdotal history of the artistic ferment that continues to shape the music of today. Among the diverse performers on hand are Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen, the Talking Heads, Philip Glass, Bob Dylan, Brian Eno, Grandmaster Flash, Laurie Anderson, and the Ramones.

"Practically every paragraph about music here is also about something else just as fascinating—race, city planning, ambition, drugs, hair-dos. Braiding intricate research with his own teenage memories, Hermes has a bird’s eye view of a great city, and has his ear to the ground."—Sarah Vowell
