The Treadmill Tapes: Confessions of a Compulsive Pop Picker

Author(s): David McGill

NZ Biography

Everybody has a Top 20, give or take, of favourite pop songs. In his new book that has been 50 years in the making, David McGill has a Top 20 for every decade in this ever-changing personal record of the records that have mattered. From diaries and annual cassette recordings of his fave raves, the author has assembled a personal pop-pourri that is also a reflection on the evolution of rock'n'roll from teenage rebellion with Elvis and local lad Johnny Devlin through the Sixties summers of love led by the Beatles to the pop-eratic indulgences of Queen and the Eagles, the electronic reactions of the eighties, up to cosmopolitan celebrations of the Pacific Sound. Top 20 compilations from Max Cryer, Carmen and friends round out this remembrance of sounds past. 165 x 230mm 317 pages
