I'm loving this course! Not only is it educational, and I'm retaining information, it's FUN! John Covach is a fantastic teacher, and very enjoyable to listen to & learn from.
packed with info and insights , very useful as I have researched Bob Dylan ( my Mphil )and Mark Knopfler ( Phd ). i hope to offer a course on rock poetics and politics
I found the course to be very interesting. I enjoyed learning about the artists and songwriters that shaped the birth of Rock and Roll and made it into the genre that so many are great fans of.
Must know for anyone that is interested in where all (most) current/popular music stems from. Explains origins of most American/European music genres.
