This is on Amazon now -- has anyone read it? Wondering if it's worth a purchase.

Thanks for the tip, Chris. Two local libraries have it on order, so I placed holds. It will probably be a month or so before I get it, though. If there are libraries in your area that take purchase requests, I'd go that route.

The pice on Harry Smith is pretty interesting I thought. Very sad tale of the NYPL's treatment of his bequest.
My loathings are simple: stupidity, oppression, crime, cruelty, soft music.

Yes, as OMuck said. Fascinating and terrifying .

Almost finished--any book that turns you on to "Skokiaan" by The African Dance Band of the Cold Storage Commission of Southern Rhodesia (later aka The Bulawayo Sweet Rhythm Band) must have some redeeming qualities:

I've just finished this book and I must say I loved it. Petrusich is a very lively writer--and she writes about the music she loves with energy and originality. I recommend it highly, though I'm not qualified to say anything intelligent about the details of the content. Give it a try!

Thanks--I had bookmarked this to watch when I find a free hour. Should be good.

Didn't the author/woman onstage do some volunteer work with/for Mr. McCormick?
Must have been amongst the greatest collectors she encountered.  Did she mention any insight gained from her time with him onstage  or in the book?
