New Book Review: Joe Kotarba on “Designed for Hi-Fi Living” #sssi #music #cct #sociology

We have just published Joe Kotarba’s review of Janet Borgerson’s and Jonathan Schroeder’s ‘Designed for Hi-Fi Living’. Kotarba writes that “[T]he authors curated a well-selected group of midcentury (1950s and 1960s) American pop record albums. They scoured record bins, from Providence to Berkeley, and their own extensive collection for album covers that told stories about the American dream for middle-class respectability. The authors interpret and critique them in term of the ways they representor indexthe modern, postwar American imagination. The book itself is simply beautiful.”
