Waterstones Says

In some quarters this is regarded as the greatest book about popular music ever written. Mystery Train is Marcus at his most audacious; holding up the music of Elvis, Sly Stone, Randy Newman and The Band as a mirror to the American dream and frontier culture.

Greil Marcus's study of American rock 'n' roll is justly regarded as one of the most accomplished examples of contemporary music writing. 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 myth, landscape and oral tradition. The result is an invigorating and wholly original study -- here in its revised, sixth edition -- that remains a high watermark in cultural criticism.
