This is an absolutely gorgeous book. It has over 350 huge color photographs from the 1970s through 1990s. An amazing chronicle of a wildly influential piece of popular culture. I would definitely recommend it for anyone with an interest in music, dance, or fashion.

A delightful completely idiosyncratic document of not just Questlove's journey but of soul and hip-hop from the 1970's through the aughts. Q is a great tour guide: He is vulnerable, arrogant, brilliant, weird, loving, opinionated, and most importantly for these purposes unfailingly interesting. Also, that man just grew my liked songs on Spotify like kudzu (but good kudzu.) His taste is as broad as can be and his knowledge base is awe-inspiring and so I happily follow.

A very interesting memoir, including structurally, but my knowledge of hip-hop just wasn't adequate for me to appreciate it. I would definitely recommend to hip-hop fans though.

A music focused overview of US history from the ‘70s through to the pandemic years. The first part of the book delivers on what its title promises but the second part slips into the author’s professional life to the point that it becomes more memoir than history. That's not a problem since his knowledge and opinions about the music he writes about are just shared from a more personal perspective. The author’s name, Questlove, is one I was only familiar with in the context of the house band on Jimmy Fallon’s late-night shows. It turns out the band itself has won several Grammy awards under the R&B and Rap categories and those are the genres that figure heavily in the book’s musical references. My copy was the audiobook version which was read by the author – not always a good thing – but in this case I doubt anyone else could have done it half as well.… (més)
