📒The History Of American Pop ✍ Stuart A. Kallen
✏The History of American Pop Book Summary : For many people, popular music provides a soundtrack to their lives by entwining emotion with experience.

Author Stuart Kallen traces the history of popular music in America from the sounds of Tin Pan Alley to Chicago jazz clubs, to southern rock n' roll and country, to the British Invasion, to psychedelic rock and Woodstock, to garage band heroes and music video rock stars, to hip-hop tycoons and young American idols.
