"It's worth the cover price for the last essay alone"

I love Hepworth's unpretentious take on popular music, and much enjoyed this eclectic collection of his journalism on a variety of subjects, from "The Beatles Were Underrated" - in which he makes a case for the band as undersung crafters of pop songs-to "The Other Side of the Sixties", in which he celebrates the decade's best B-sides. It's worth the cover price for the last essay alone, in which he picks out "Five Records That Always Work at Weddings"...
