Out of the Vinyl Deeps

Ellen Willis on Rock Music
by Ellen Willis , Willis Aronowitz, Nona

In 1968, the New Yorker hired Ellen Willis as its first popular music critic. Out of the Vinyl Deeps collects for the first time Willis’s Rock, Etc. columns and other writings, reasserting her rightful place in rock music criticism. More than simply setting the record straight, this book reintroduces Willis’s singular approach and style to a new generation of readers.
