Essays from various rock critics about what they'd take and why. I found some of the essays very interesting ( )

A wonderful collection of essays. I'll never forget the experience of reading Ed Ward's "Dedicated to You" (about the 5 Royales); the end took me aback, made me laugh, and left me a wiser man. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 030681532X, Paperback)

When rock critic Greil Marcus asked 20 other writers on rock what one rock-and-roll album they'd want to take to a desert island, the resulting 20 fervent essays by the likes of Dave Marsh, Lester Bangs, and Robert Christgau became this engaging book. It's a brief but intense amusement to imagine spending the rest of your life under a coconut palm listening to The Kinks, The Eagles, Van Morrison or The Ronettes.
