Looney Tunes: The Myth of the Vicious Circle
Dave Marsh, Creem, March 1971
ROCK AND roll began in a twilight zone, a pure thing swirling in out of a pretty pristine void.

How it chanced to come again and again to the fucked up Paul Anka state of the late fifties and early seventies is another story.
