You'll always be ahead of Greil Marcus in my estimation, Charlie. And the back cover simply confirms this.

Why, thank you! I'm pro-Marcus, even though it's sort of like being pro-Wilco. But I know many who aren't.

Happy birthday, again!

I love, love, love "Lipstick Traces." But "Mystery Train" and "The Dustbin of History" don't really strike me at the visceral level the way "Lipstick Traces" does.

Well, Mystery Train came so much earlier that it seems unfair to hold it to the same standard. For its time, it was pretty great. I still like it.

I don't think his work since Lipstick Traces measures up to either of his landmark books. But there's lots of good stuff all the same.
