‘A remarkable new book … goes leaping from Beethoven to Big Black, from Morton Feldman to Curtis Mayfield, identifying continuities while delighting in contrasts’ Alex Ross, New YorkerFor the first time ever, we have all the music in the world to choose from. As Ben Ratliff, one of America’s celebrated music critics, shows us, it’s time to listen in a new way too. Opening our ears to unexpected connections, new experiences and little-known delights, this book will change the way you appreciate music forever. ‘Masterly … An instructive guide to opening one’s mind and compiling a new kind of playlist … succeeds brilliantly’ John Clarke, Independent’Smart, provocative … in every case informative’ August Kleinzahler, The New York Times Book Review ‘Like a trip into the world’s coolest record store’ David Browne, Rolling Stone
