I recently received my first Amazon review and it is a real stunner: Five Stars!
It begins as follows:
THE last word on Rhapsody in Blue. Written for non-music-techies and the general public alike, Banagale traces the route of the Rhapsody from novelty to iconic piece of Americana. It’s a combination of history, musical analysis, and really imaginative research.
You can read the review in full here.
I have no idea who the reviewer is, but they are apparently a member of “Vine Voice,” a program created by Amazon to “provide customers with more information including honest and unbiased feedback from some of Amazon’s most trusted reviewers.” Lucky for me he liked the book!
I welcome additional reviews and feedback here, on Amazon, or wherever else readers may wish to share their thoughts, splendid or otherwise!
