"Many unexpected delights." Gramophone "Source was there to document all the crazy changes in ... art-music that we're always trying to one-up one another in our purported 'vast knowledge of' here in the TMT office. Score." Tiny Mix Tapes "Fascinating... A healthy collection of prose descriptions trying to account for what was going on at the time." -- Stephen Smoliar Examiner.com "Remarkable... The book is a delight to hold and view... Highly recommended." -- John Schuster-Craig, Grand Valley State University Fontes Artis Musicae
