Continuum, 2002 - 530 стор.
Popular music grew out of ragtime, vaudeville, and the blues to become global mass entertainment. Yet nearly eighty years after Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith first blazed a trail, have their successors achieved the recognition and affirmation they deserve? Or has the only way to success been to slot into salable images of the cute babe or sexy chanteuse?She Bop II, now fully revised and updated, is the classic hands-on history of women in rock, pop, and soul - on stage, on camera and working behind the scenes in a male-dominated industry. Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Dusty Springfield, Patti Smith, Madonna, Joni Mitchell, Whitney Houston, Courtney Love, Alanis Morissette, Destiny's Child - all the key names are here. But She Bop II refuses to look at women artists simply as personalities, problems, or victims. From Dream Babes to rock chicks, Riot Grrrls and ragamuffins, She Bop is the uncompromising story of women as creators and innovators. With a feminist perspective added to her incredibly detailed knowledge of the stars and their music, and including an abundance of personal interviews, Lucy O'Brien's book was the first truly comprehensive overview of women in popular music. Since it was first published in 1995, it has garnered worldwide acclaim. This new edition includes an additional chapter and dozens of extra interviews, covering trends such as Girlpower, Lilith Fair rock, and the rise of the corporate Diva.
