Blue Monday: Fats Domino and the Lost Dawn of Rock ‘n’ Roll by Rick Coleman

Eh.  Plenty of history in this book, which does present a pretty wide view of race relations as well as the development of pop music in the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s and not solely focused on Fats Domino.  Which is a good thing, since Domino is one of the least interesting and less admirable figures of the period covered in the book.  I didn’t find the writing to be particularly engaging and felt like I had to trudge along through some of it, but the information is worth knowing.
