The same people (Bondi) also offer 40 years of ROLLING STONE in the same format.

Besides the music coverage, which ranges from breath-taking to embarrassing, there's some great true crime stuff (Patty Hearst! Gary Gilmore! Congressmen!), and a few pretty incisive reviews (THE LAST GOOD KISS, fer example), mostly by Greil Marcus, of hard-boiled literature. Plus articles on Elmore Leonard, Ross Macdonald, Warren Zevon and a ton of others we've discussed here over the years.

And it's always cool to see how some films (like, say, CHINATOWN) were first covered.
