Odd how little a book of 2001-published music essays has dated by 2010, but then, few of these pieces are about trends; one that is, about turntablism, is unspeakably dull. Topics include Ralph Stanley, the Strokes, "Help Me Make It Through the Night" and, in the book's most remarkable entry, Korla Pandit, a turban-wearing mystic organist on L.A. TV in the '50s who turned out, posthumously, to be black, not Indian.

If you are a fan of music and/or music journalism "De Capo's Best Music Writing" series is a must-read. More than the usual suspects at Spin and Rolling Stone, the series includes the best music zine writing as well. (Hmm... best zine writing... that could be a book series of its own)
