The MC5's Kick Out the Jams (33 1/3)

Customer Reviews:

cool book

By wrappedupinbooks - June 6, 2007

I like this book - really takes you back to the days of the "revolution" - could maybe have a had a little more analysis of the music, but it's a very good work on a band whose candle burned brightly and quickly.

A testimony from one who was there

By Rich L. - August 8, 2012

I would have liked a little more info about what tracks are from what show (or from the back-up recordings in the empty hall) but overall this is an excellent read about a great band and a great album. It gives a great overview of the band and their storied career, and it comes from a guy who was blown away by them live before the album came out. A good balance of personal narrative and factual history.

great book
