Come celebrate the 10th Anniversary of 33 1/3, the amazing music series that takes you inside your favorite albums. We’ll have a number of contributors–including Carl Wilson (Vol. 52: Celine Dion’s Let’s Talk About Love) and Susan Fast (Vol. 100: Michael Jackson’s Dangerous), among others–music trivia, and, of course, great tunes!
About 33 1/3:
33 1/3 is a series of short books about popular music, focusing on individual albums by artists ranging from James Brown to Celine Dion and from J Dilla to Neutral Milk Hotel. Each album covered in the series occupies such a specific place in music history, so each book-length treatment is different. Jonathan Lethem, Colin Meloy, Daphne Brooks, Carl Wilson and Gina Arnold are just some of the authors who have contributed to the series so far. Widely acclaimed by fans, musicians and scholars alike, 33 1/3 is celebrating its 10th anniversary with the publication of the 100th volume in September of 2014. Check out the 33 1/3 blog, Twitter, and Facebook for more info.
“The series is probably the most remarkable regular event in rock journalism today. Each thin volume — there are nearly 100 of them now, enough almost to stretch across the back seat of a Mini Cooper — presents one critic on one album. A lot of these writers are capable of shredding.” – New York Times
