Eddie A. said:
The time between 1973 and 1977 will forever be known as one of New York City's more storied musical eras. Most will remember it as the birth of Punk and New Wave, but serious music academics know that there was so much more to the NYC story then, as experimental music icons Laurie Anderson and Phillip Glass rose to new fame while Disco was in its infancy and Salsa was exploding out of Spanish Harlem, Patti Smith ruled the clubs and Hip Hop was being born under lamp posts outside of the city parks. While the city was at a creative peak, it was one of the most racially tense, corrupt and gritty times, all of which found its way into the music. Will Hermes' genuine excitement over this era is evident in each chapter of this wonderful book.
