    His foremost interpreter revisits more than forty years of listening to Dylan - weaving individual moods and moments into a brilliant history of their changing times.

  • Listening to Van Morrisonby Greil Marcus

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 10.90

    'Van Morrison,' says Greil Marcus, 'remains a singer who can be compared to no other in the history of modern popular music.' When Astral Weeks was released in 1968, it was largely ignored. When it was re-released as a live album in 2009 it reached the top of the Billboard charts, a first for any Van Morrison recording. The wild swings in the... more...

  • The Doorsby Greil Marcus

    Faber & Faber 2012; US$ 18.17

    A fan from the moment the Doors' first album arrived, Greil Marcus saw the band many times at the legendary Filmore Auditorium and the Avalon Ballroom in 1967. Five years later it was all over. Forty years after the singer Jim Morrison was found dead in Paris and the group disbanded, Greil Marcus muses on how one could drive from here to there,... more...

  • Lipstick Tracesby Greil Marcus

    Faber & Faber 2014; US$ 18.95

    A cult classic in a new edition. This book is about a single, serpentine fact: late in 1976 a record called 'Anarchy in the UK' was issued in London, and this event launched a transformation of pop music all over the world. The song distilled, in crudely poetic form, a critique of modern society once set out by a small group of Paris intellectuals.... more...

  • Mystery Trainby Greil Marcus

    Faber & Faber 2014; US$ 16.03

    Greil Marcus's study of American rock and roll is universally acclaimed as the benchmark work of modern rock criticism. Using a handful of artists - a brace of bluesmen, The Band, Sly Stone, Randy Newman and Elvis Presley - Marcus illuminates and interprets the American Dream in rigorous prose touching on the myth, landscape and oral tradition... more...

  • The Stammering Centuryby Gilbert Seldes; Greil Marcus

    New York Review Books 2012; US$ 21.95

    Gilbert Seldes, the author of  The Stammering Century , writes:       This book is not a record of the major events in Ameri­can history during       the nineteenth century. It is concerned with minor movements, with the       cults and manias of that period. Its personages are fanatics, and radicals,       and mountebanks. Its intention is to... more...

  • The True Adventures of the Rolling Stonesby Stanley Booth; Greil Marcus

    Canongate Books 2012; US$ 14.13

    'Sounding like one instrument, a wild whirling bagpipe, the Stones chugged to a halt. But the crowd didn't stop, we could see Hells Angels spinning like madmen, swinging at people. By stage right a tall white boy with a black cloud of electric hair was dancing, shaking, infuriating the Angels by having too good a time.' The True Adventures of the Rolling... more...

  • Love & Theftby Eric Lott; Greil Marcus

  • Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dungby Lester Bangs; Greil Marcus

    Profile Books 2013; US$ 9.31

    Until his death aged thirty-three in 1982, Lester Bangs wrote wired, rock 'n' roll pieces on Iggy Pop, The Clash, John Lennon, Kraftwerk, Lou Reed. As a rock critic, he had an eagle-eye for distinguishing the pre-packaged imitation from the real thing; written in a conversational, wisecracking, erotically charged style, his hallucinatory hagiographies... more...

  • Psychotische Reaktionen und heiße Luftby Lester Bangs; Bernd Middel; Jörg Fauser; Teja Schwaner; Astrid Tillmann; Peer Schmitt; Greil Marcus

    FUEGO 2011; US$ 8.51

    Lester Bangs ist 'die' große Rock-Kritiker-Legende in Amerika.
