 Techno Music and Rave Culture from The Bomp Bookshelf
Many writers have sung the praises of groups such as the Beatles, analyzing their influence on music and popular culture in the process.
The raves and huge dance parties of the late-1980s changed the face of popular culture, as hundreds of thousands of youngsters enjoyed the illicit thrills of ecstacy and vast, illegal "all-nighters".
As a cross-disciplinary effort, the book is equally aimed at dance music enthusiasts as well as at those engaged in urban studies, American and Africana studies, gay studies, cultural studies, sociology, popular music studies, anthropology and ethnomusicology.

 INKPOT - Elliott Carter Holiday Overture Symphony No.1 Piano Concerto Mark Wait,piano, Nashville SO, Kenneth Schermerhorn -- NAXOS
I use the term "degenerate" in view of the perception among composers, performers and audience alike in their tendency to make clear separations of influence between two extremes: the high culture of classical tradition (the ivory-tower snobbery) and the low culture of popular entertainment (tainted by exploitative commercialism).
Koehne is by no means alone in this endeavour: the Beatles-inspired Latvian composer Imants Kalnins wrote his Fourth Symphony, "Rock" (recorded by the Singapore SO on BIS CD-1052), both as a form of aesthetic expression, as well as a polemic for political protest.
Koehne's approach is also reflected in his cheekily unconventional and self-deprecating titles, an intentional irony that "classical" music need not always (pretentiously) follow the usual institutions of nomenclature with opus numbers and keys, but rather embraces the rival tradition so that each might benefit the other.

 World Music Network feature: Asha Bhosle
In terms of scale of popularity, the size of its audience and the possibilities for creating stars, no other popular music culture compares with that of the Indian subcontinent.
Asha’s effect in terms of global cultural impact and influence can not be underestimated, and her Olympian place as the most recorded artist in history, with more than 20,000 documented songs in over a dozen languages, is undisputed.
Abba, the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Madonna and Elvis Presley all supposedly shifted a fair few units.

 From the Mississippi to the Mersey
These are the voices of local Black musicians, past and present, and the music they made, whose influence on Mersey Beat has not just been ignored but to a large degree erased totally from the musical culture of Liverpool.
Quite simply, the basic harmonic structure that the Beatles and other local bands employed was firmly rooted in the traditions of black acappella/R'n'B. Furthermore, the sounds that sprang from the city in the early Sixties, Mersey-Sound, were predominantly cover versions of Black R'n'B artists, who had either gained little or no release in the UK.
Jerry Wexler, one of the musical legends in his producing of black popular music from the early 1950s through the Atlantic label, said that whenever he visited New Orleans "I hear voices." For over two centuries in the slave auction square, the Place du Congo, there was the never-ending sound of shifting rhythms.

 Popular Culture: from Baseball to Rock and Roll (John Bull and Uncle Sam)
American influence in areas of mass popular entertainment increased after World War II and led some observers, who also noted the influx of many features of American consumerism -- such as fast food, supermarkets, and household appliances -- to comment, sometimes negatively, on the "Americanization" of Britain.
Although the dominance of American rock and roll music was the most conspicuous feature of the British pop culture scene in the years after World War II, the long tradition of British performers thriving in the United States continued both before and after war as did the favorable reception of their American counterparts in Britain.
American rock and roll music inspired a host of British imitators but no British group made an impression on the American market until the advent of the Beatles at the end of 1963.

 Bert Kaempfert : The Very Best of Bert Kaempfert - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Bert Kaempfert may have signed and lost the Beatles, but as this CD reminds us, he never lacked for hit records of his own, and had his own influence on popular culture around the world.
Also featured are Kaempfert's own versions of his two contributions to Frank Sinatra's repertory, "Strangers In The Night" and "The World We Knew (Over And Over)".
This isn't quite a comprehensive collection of Kaempfert's hits, but it will have special resonances to listeners of a certain age group, and it covers a few bases that would be missed by a strict adherence to chart placements.

Though The Rascals are no longer a performing entity, their music has become a part of our culture, from oldies radio, TV commercials, and movies like The Big Chill and Platoon.
Management was less than supportive of the new directions the band was headed in and a switch to the Columbia label failed to provide the new life they were looking for.
