The Seventh Stream: The Emergence of Rock'n'roll in American Popular Music

Author: Philip H. Ennis

Publication date: 1992


“Philip Ennis presents a major social and cultural study of the origins and evolution of "rocknroll." With masterful command of general trends and telling details, he describes the artistic, economic, and political context that nurtured this radically new popular music. This "seventh stream," which drew from existing forms of pop music, began as a youth movement of rebellion and remains a worldwide banner of youth in search of alternatives."
