Marquee Moon by Bryan Waterman doesn't seem like a typical 33 1/3 book, mostly due to its length, 210 pages. However, it is a thoroughly researched book that is as much about the CBGB scene, and the media's relationship with the band as much as it is about the seminal album. And perhaps that is one of my criticisms. Waterman doesn't really talk about the album itself in length until p.156, that being said I am a huge fan of that time and place in that I also a huge Patti Smith, The Ramones, Blondie, N.Y. Dolls, and Talking Heads fan and there's a lot of good stuff about these people and bands. I'm inspired to read a couple of his sources: Please Kill Me by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain (which is on my shelf) and Patti Smith's memoir Just Kids.
