Worshiped by Tea Party politicians but loathed by sane economists, gold has influenced American monetary policy and has exerted an irrational influence on the national psyche for centuries. It is an existential quest that extends to today, as millions of investors remain entranced by the metal and as right-wing presidential candidates present it as the antidote to our economic woes.

Just Around Midnight: Rock and Roll and the Racial Imagination [Audiobook]

Just Around Midnight: Rock and Roll and the Racial Imagination [Audiobook] by Jack Hamilton
English | March 31st, 2017 | ASIN: B06XNXQ29P, ISBN: 1541451406 | MP3@64 kbps | 10 hrs 8 mins | 278.75 MB
Narrator: Ron Butler

Rooted in rhythm-and-blues pioneered by black musicians, 1950s rock and roll was racially inclusive and attracted listeners and performers across the color line. In the 1960s, however, rock and roll gave way to rock: a new musical ideal regarded as more serious, more artistic-and the province of white musicians. Decoding the racial discourses that have distorted standard histories of rock music, Jack Hamilton underscores how ideas of "authenticity" have blinded us to rock's inextricably interracial artistic enterprise.
