I read a lot of books about music. Most are okay. Many are really good. A few are great. Here's a list of five that I consider great:
· Abdurraqib, Hanif. Go Ahead in the Rain: Notes to a Tribe Called Quest.
· Byrne, David. How Music Works.
· Hermes, Will. Love Goes to Buildings on Fire.
· Marcus, Greil. The History of Rock’n’Roll in Ten Songs.
· Ramone, Phil. Making Records.
That is all.
