Chapter 11 AOR (Album-Oriented Rock): a categorization of a particular programming format on the newly-used FM radio stations, consisting of long-running shows that featured album tracks that were not released as singles; associated with progressive rock of the late 1960s and early 1970s (p. 314) Grand Ole Opry: A radio program beginning in 1925 on the WSM station in Nashville, Tennessee, continuing to the present day, which featured a rotating line-up of current country musicians; presently broadcast on television as well (p. 316) Hi-Fi (High Fidelity): label given to technologically modern stereo sound, coinciding with improvements in studio recording of the late 1960s; enabled sonic experimentation by rock artists, and gave the effect of sound moving around the listener (p. 330) Glam Rock: A form of progressive rock from the 1970s which emphasized the elaborate, showy personal appearance and costuming of its practitioners, often highlighting gender ambiguity, eg. David Bowie (p. 331) Heavy Metal: A term used since the early 1970s to designate a subgenre of hard rock music; marked by distorted guitar ‘power chords’, heavy riffs, wailing vocals and virtuosic solos by guitarists and drummers, eg. MC5, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple (p. 335) Chapter 12 Progressive Country: A term used to describe a style of country music combining country and rock techniques, developed during the 1970s. It is particularly associated with Austin, Texas, where an eclectic musical community experimented with such styles as folk, rock, jazz, western swing, Tex-Mex and mainstream country; the resulting amalgam was aimed at a young audience and widely publicized as an alternative to the Nashville sound, which was regarded as too homogenized. Eg. Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, David Allan Coe (p. 350) Dub: a branch of the reggae tradition in which verbal performances are improvised over prerecorded musical accompaniments (p. 356) Mento: a mixture of Jamaican folk songs, church hymns, sailor’s shanties, and Cuban influences, which arose in Jamaica during the late nineteenth century; Jamaica’s version of country music (p. 356) Ska: A style of Jamaican popular music and dance. From 1961 to 1965 it was the predominant popular style in Jamaica, and can claim to be its first truly indigenous music. A stylistic amalgam of African-Cuban and New Orleans influences, jazz, quick-time rhythm and blues and Rastafarian rhythms; A musical style resulting from the coalescence in Jamaica in the late 1950s of local mento and burron rhythms
