My favourite books 6: Awopbopaloobop AlopbamboomPosted: May 23, 2011
Awopbopaloobop Alopbamboom by Nik Cohn
Weidenfeld & Nicolson 1969; this edition: Paladin 1970
One of the finest books ever written about pop music – vigorous, pithy and highly opinionated. Like the very best of pop, it is ephemeral and immediate, but has lasting quality.
