    If you're looking for a basic introduction to the players and participants involved in the Million Dollar Quartet session, this book will do the job. Where it really shines is the analysis of the available recorded material, giving composition information and the history of the songwriters. Since much of the available material is religious work sometimes only noted as "Trad.," this makes the extensive song notes a real treat. A lot of the other material is a sort of mile-wide, inch-deep look at C If you're looking for a basic introduction to the players and participants involved in the Million Dollar Quartet session, this book will do the job. Where it really shines is the analysis of the available recorded material, giving composition information and the history of the songwriters. Since much of the available material is religious work sometimes only noted as "Trad.," this makes the extensive song notes a real treat. A lot of the other material is a sort of mile-wide, inch-deep look at Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Sam Phillips. If you're entirely unfamiliar with their histories, this would be a good place to begin. Otherwise, it's very much a case of "yeah, yeah, I know." Still, it was a worthwhile read and I would recommend it to fans of roots rock.
