Good books or articles on 1960s rock?
posted by Cwell to media & arts (4 answers total)
Excuse my lack of music knowledge in this question.
I'd like to read a book that talks about the lesser-known bands and musicians known for producing the "party rock" of the 1950s/1960s. Bands like The Champs, The Gentrys, and others that you would put on the jukebox if you wanted to dance or "have a good time." (Sorry for simplifying.)
I'm not looking for an epic history of the Beatles or ALL 1960s rock, just something that might touch on what was considered party music.
I understand that maybe this genre was created recently for the sake of producing "party" mixes in the present day, but if anyone can suggest some good books/articles that would talk about the rise of this particular sound, that would be great.
