'Echo and Twang': Plug Into Classic Guitar Music of the '50s
Echo and Twang (192 pages, $19.95), a book edited by guitar expert Tony Bacon, plugs you into a decade in popular music and pop culture that simply could not have happened without the electric guitar.
Year by year, you'll discover the guitars, players (Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Barney Kessel and more) and developments that impacted jazz, blues and country, and gave birth to a timeless movement called rock 'n' roll.
In stunning full-color throughout, it also features classic ads, catalogs, movie posters and other fascinating '50s memorabilia. Includes an index and a bibliography.
