Here’s a novel concept: A collective known for publishing sightseeing tour books—complete with maps—sets its sights on Gotham’s rock-and-roll landmarks. And there are many. Ever want to stand on the cobblestone street in Greenwich Village where the eponymous cover of “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan” was shot? Or visit the site of the crummy Bowery dive where the Ramones played their earliest gigs? It’s all in here, and the fun and breezy tone, caught perfectly by Ken Dashow, makes the listener feel the presence of these legends, and others like them, as he explores a lost era when it didn’t take money to live in New York, just a tough skin and talent prodigious enough to please the world’s most discriminating audience.
