This is an immensely enjoyable & edifying window into how the advent of recorded music begat the now omnipresent concept of Pop.

In doing so, Stanley unpacks an era that can feel stuffy, drawing out characters & trends that have more in common with the modern day than you might expect.

“A perfect guidebook, filled with smart thinking and the kind of enthusiasm that sends you rushing to hear what all the fuss was about” – The Guardian
