Finally back in print and now in audio – David Foster Wallace and Mark Costello's exuberant exploration of rap music and culture.

Signifying Rappers (Audiobook)
Living together in Cambridge in 1989, David Foster Wallace and longtime friend Mark Costello discovered that they shared "an uncomfortable, somewhat furtive, and distinctively white enthusiasm for a certain music called rap/hip-hop." The book they wrote together, set against the legendary Boston music scene, mapped the bipolarities of rap and pop, rebellion and acceptance, glitz and gangsterdom. Signifying Rappers issued a fan's challenge to the giants of rock writing, Greil Marcus, Robert Palmer, and Lester Bangs: Could the new street beats of 1989 set us free, as rock had always promised?

Available again at last, Signifying Rappers is a rare record of a city and a summer by two great thinkers, writers, and friends. With a new foreword by Mark Costello on his experience writing with David Foster Wallace, this reissue cannot be missed.

The Doors: A Lifetime of Listening to Five Mean Years (Audiobook)

The Doors: A Lifetime of Listening to Five Mean Years (Audiobook) By Greil Marcus, read by Ray Porter
Unabridged edition 2011 | 4 hours and 45 mins | ISBN: 1455122076 | MP3 96 kbps | 198 MB
The best critic of popular culture in America considers the attraction of the Doors, which has endured despite the band's short life, sampling the lasting songs and legendary performances that made Jim Morrison and his band rock 'n' roll legends.

A fan from the moment the Doors' first album took over KMPX, the revolutionary FM rock 'n' roll station in San Francisco, Greil Marcus saw the band many times at the legendary Fillmore Auditorium and the Avalon Ballroom in 1967. Five years later it was all over. Forty years after singer Jim Morrison was found dead in Paris and the group disbanded, one could drive from here to there, changing from one FM pop station to another, and be all but guaranteed to hear two, three, four of the Doors' songs in an hour–every hour. Whatever the demands in the music, they remained unsatisfied, in the largest sense unfinished, and absolutely alive.

There have been many books on the Doors. This is the first to bypass their myth, their mystique, and the death cult of both Jim Morrison–and the era he was made to personify–and focus solely on the music. All these years later, it is a new story.
