'Pick Up the Pieces' Is a Primer in Music as Cultural Memory

Pick Up the Pieces: Excursions in Seventies Music engages the reader with the intertwining threads of music criticism, cultural commentary, and memoir, none of which intrude on the others. Casting a chronological run through the '70s, the book begins with a short essay on the Kinks' "Lola", which situates the song and its open secret among 11-year-old boys gathered around an older brother's record player in a suburban bedroom. Songs become the soundtrack to the stories of author John Corbett's...
