Book Excerpt of the Day

Teenage Rebellion boasts a handful of unintentionally funny spoken word tracks with titles like ‘Pot Party’, ‘The Call Girl’ and ‘The Gay Teenager.’ Narrator Burt Topper walks a fine line between objectivity and moral objection as psychedelia and beatnik vibes provide musical counterpoint; it’s funny how the hallucinogenic crime jazz that accompanies Topper’s indictment of drug culture only serves to make that culture more attractive.”

– from Chapter 7: Rockin’ Revolution of Kristopher Spencer’s Film and Television Scores, 1950-1979
