Got a boyfriend because of it I ve still got that album Albums Were Precious And The precious and the of listening was a communal one We shared music in those days This is about the albums and the bands who made them and the people who made the about the albums and the bands who made them and the people who made the who made themsound OK nough mostly so you could listen and Catalogue De La Biblioth Que De M Le Cte Charles De L Escalopier Cheva enjoy without being on the same drugs the band were on This is a cultural history of rather a long moment It is very good Read it Like we did the lyrics in the back of the album cover The title as any fule kno is from Roxy Music s Do The Strand a fabulous creation indeed which also boasts the line Rhododendron it s a nice flower Even though I m a Gen Xer and LPs were already in their dying years when I was a teen I still get the melancholy feel of this book but it s a pleasant nostalgia not a whinge I have alwaysnjoyed David Hepworth s writing whether it be his music journalism for various publications or recently the music based books that he has written and this one s no Maria Del Carmen exception Hepworth serves up a history of the rockpop long playing record from the Beatles 1967 release Sgt Pepper s Lonely Hearts Club Band through to Micheal Jackson s Thriller in 1982 He picks Sgt Pepper as his starting point as basically this was in his opinion the first proper album which didn t just contain 2 hit singles and a load of filler andnds with Thriller as from then on record companies were interested in making money than the music The chapters are written for Aeneidea Or Critical Exegetial And Aesthetical Remarks On The Aeneis each specific year and he describes the significant albums from those years and also the innovations in the recording of the music and in the music industry that came about during those years How music went from a communal pursuit where friends would gather round the stereo system listening to the latest albums to it becoming a singular activity where people listened on headphones to their Walkman or to present day where we now listen to downloads on our phones I thoroughlynjoyed this book but like most music books I don t always agree with the author s view but that s music for you I am slightly younger than Mr Hepworth and my serious music buying didn t start until the The Republic Of Plato Books I V early 70 s and therefore my taste is slightly different and my view of some records vary from his but that s probably because a lot of thearlier stuff I only discovered later in life However a lot of the things he describes rang a lot of bells with me Carmina Illustrium Poetarum Italorum Vol 7 especially how we had to hunt down particular records and also the pride one felt carrying a specific album about under ones arm as we walked about town I alwaysnjoy the tone of Mr Hepworth writing which I have difficulty xplaining but he is very god at writing peoplethings down but in a humorous way and with is very god at writing peoplethings down but in a humorous way and with very witty rejoinders I also njoyed the appendix at the Carmina Illustrium Poetarum Italorum Vol 1 end of the book where he gives a brief review of the significant albums ofach year that the book covers and it also gave me a few ideas of bands that need further The General History Of Polybius Vol 1 Of 3 exploration on my partI look forward to his next publication which is Rock n Roll A Level which I assume will be a a challenging uiz book by the sound of it Breezy tour of the long playing record written as both memoir and cultural history Some acts may not ring a bell to American audiencesspecially those of us who Reisen Im Westindischen Mittelmeer embraced pop over artists who labored over their art I don t recall Television at all nor Joy Division so that s maybe a true test of the power of Top 40 radio You had to hunt some of this music down in record bins because the drive time DJs sure didn t play it There are some wonderful passages like his outline of a standard record deal and the pages about The Making of Tusk It s a male perspective though For us girls LPs were the main way we got to see our music crushes and we waited for albums to come out w photo inserts and posters They wallpapered our rooms and hearts In recent years. Trying to reversengineer the creative process in order to make big money Nobody would play music or listen to it in uite the same way ver againIt was a short but transformative time Musicians became ‘artists’ and we the people patrons of the arts The LP itself had been a mark of sophistication a measure of wealth an instrument of ducation a poster saying things you dare not say you. This is the third book of Hepworth s I ve read Each "Draws On His Long "on his long as a music writer and Les Comedies De Terence Vol 3 each serves as an affectionatelegy for the rock n roll Auli Gelli Noctes Attic Vol 1 era and with it the twilight of the baby boom of which I am a latentry Like the 1971 book and the Pop Stars collection Hepworth uses the modern history of the long playing record which he traces from Sergeant Pepper in 1967 to Thriller in 1983 to Biographies And Portraits Of The Progressive Men Of Iowa Vol 11 essentially link together a series of anecdotes around historical landmarks like the shift from analog to digital recording or thevolution of the live albumHe deftly captures the romance and long lost joy of buying a new record taking it home for the first time taking the disc out of the sleeve and listening to it all the way through while devouring Catalogue Des Dissertations Et Crits Acad Miques every inch of the cover art The contrast with the casual ubiuity and commodification of streamed music today is stark There was a ritual to listening to music back then And unlike now it was a communal activity As much anconomic and social history as a cultural one this book is a joy It s often laugh out loud funny yet at once sharply perceptive rueful and wryly nostalgic Best of all it makes you want to go back and listen to all those albums again on vinyl of courseOh and I agree with him about Television s Maruee Moon a lot of fuss about not much at all in retrospect One of the few high points of 2020 s coronavirus lockdown has been the Word in Your Attic videos on You Tune between David Hepworth his longtime friend collaborator Mark Ellen and a guest just shooting the breeze or in their vernacular taking a trip to bllcks island Hepworth is a laconic northern Eeyore balancing out the

David Hepworth has been pumping out xcellent books on classic rock pop in short order this his fourth may be the best yetHere he charts the rise and fall of the long playing pop record as an artistic statement and a cultural force submitting that the glory years were 1967 1982 Before then an album was a bunch of songs Afterward he supposes technology fragmented the medium and distracted us from it forty minutes of music certainly couldn t command our undivided attention anyPart of the pleasure of Hepworth s writing is how uneuivocal he is He s as convinced of the central argument here as in 1971 Never a Dull Moment Rock s Golden Year where he insisted that 1971 was the annus mirabilis of the rock album One might uibble with him as I do on The Band s second album being a masterpiece or Give Em Enough Rope being a waste of Serie Chronologica Dos Vice Reis E Governadores Geraes Do Estado Da Indi everybody s time but as always he has the courage of his convictions and shows his working in such anntertaining fashionWe might also disagree with where to draw a line in the sand 1982 Thriller MTV and the ubiuity of the Sony Walkman and here Hepworth does perhaps let stuffy nostalgia for the physical object of the vinyl LP cloud his judgement Even children of the later CD Flora Oder Allgemeine Botanische Zeitung 1887 Vol 70 era will have memories much like Hepworth s of gathering anncyclopaedic knowledge of artists they d never yet heard from the pages of Melody Maker or NME of saving up pocket money for a trip to the megastore of setting aside an Die Deutsche Reichspost Im Dienste Der Arbeiterversicherung evening to absorb their favourite singer s latest work and so onWhat s hard to argue with is that by 2019 music s value has vanished It s now rented rather than sought out a huge chunk ofverything ver recorded is on tap for a monthly fee that s half the price you paid for your first CD in Woolworth s Songs are typically consumed within playlists Often they re heard through the tinniest of kitchen table speakers which is also recording your very conversation and muttered oath for marketing purposes rather than sitting reverentially in front of hi fi separates puzzling over Evening Post Annual 1882 every lyricHepworth is superb at outlining the forces that brought us to this point He characterises the recordxecs who mostly did care about the music after all and the tech giants who really didn t The contrast between a teenager strutting about town with an LP under their arm and one privately soundtracking their life with a Walkman or an iPod is teased out neatly There s a particularly fascinating look at how generation after generation men are forever struggling to reconcile the music they really do like with that that they think they ought to like Hepworth s own Historia Cr Tica De La Poes A Castellana En El Siglo Xviii Vol 2 example is hispiphany that Pink Floyd s Ummagumma was not him and Exchanging It For The it for the Convention s Liege and Lief Hard to fault him there Oh No I may be growing tired of David HepworthI usually really njoy his writing I uite often don t agree with him but that leads to a rather pleasant argument with him in my own head where he can t talk backBut this one disappointed me somewhat He does talk a lot of bollocks of course and is over fond of a sweeping statement I know that I m not part of his target audience I m a bit younger and also importantly female Although I was there I m not part of the gang he conjures but that usually doesn t bother me too much for the reasons aboveI used to find him interesting and informative But this book while it still has some bite seems a little lazy The choice to narrow his scope to just 15 years no doubt helped to keep the project to a manageable size but leaves a fractured and diminished story And the shape of the story forms a bit of a manageable size but leaves a fractured and diminished story And the shape of the story forms a bit of depressing plunge as if he d written so much lost his nthusiasm and given upShame But I m with him re Horses Over the past couple of years David Hepworth has been cementing his already considerable reputation as a pop music writer and commentator with books tha.
