Submitter: I work at a small academic library where we’ve been trying to weed the reference section.We found this and not only is it 40 years old, it has that 40 year old smell to it, and many of the musicians have passed away since publication even though it’s written as if everyone is alive and kicking. Gotta love the hair height and the pant suit on the covers! Wyoming’s list of country stations only includes AM stations, and the author claims that John Denver “ain’t country, baby”.
Holly: This is spectacular. The hair! The fashion! It was a great choice for libraries 40 years ago. It’s a weeder now, unless there is some sort of music history curriculum at your school. Even then, I’ll bet there are music history books that treat 1974 as history. Weed and replace! Do enjoy the truly wondrous images below, though.
