Dennis Boutsikaris performs this selection of essays published between 1982 and 2017 with a driving energy that sounds exactly right for Dave Marsh's smart-alecky writing. Boutsikaris's quick pacing and assertive diction infuse the listening with the same immediacy that makes Marsh's arresting opinions so entertaining and thought provoking. Marsh is a nuanced observer of the people and cultural trends that have impacted the way rock, rap, punk, and other music genres evolved over the past 50 or 60 years. He holds back nothing, criticizing artists, radio DJs, unscrupulous industry executives, and meddling politicians while grappling with the uncomfortable direction the country was going. For anyone fascinated with American pop music and the culture at large, this is an essential audio guide from a preeminent music writer.
