I just finished reading your book and I´m just blown away! I mean, I know I was there during a lot of this time, and I even interviewed for the book, but I´m still amazed at how much I didn´t know about what went on those first five years. I had no idea how close ´Friends In Low Places´ came to not happening! You basically gave away ´The Thunder Rolls´ and ´What She´s Doing Now´? You found ´The Dance´ and then decided not to record it? (I´m not sure I´d tell people that, haha!) I had heard the crazy story of how ´Papa Loved Mama´ was written and recorded all in the same session, but I never believed it was true ... ´til now. You know that´s one of my all-time favorite Garth songs! I cried when I heard Tony Arata´s first-ever recording of ´The Dance.´ Walking the reader through how the songwriting and recording process really happens with the example of the original lyrics and recording of ´That Summer´ ... brilliant. And I vividly remember you playing me a song called ´Miss Rodeo´ that eventually became ´Rodeo.´ You pitched that song to me, didn´t you? :) And you know some of my favorite Garth songs are ones that you never even recorded, and they´re all here! Pretty cool. You asked me to read this book and tell you what I thought. As your wife, best friend, and as a fellow artist, I´m just so proud of you! I love that you tell the story from your own perspective, and you also get the viewpoint of the songwriters, the players who played on every song, and the producer and engineer who recorded and mixed the first five records and lived through it all with you. I love the pictures I had never seen before from inside the studio where you guys practically lived together for those first years. Like I said, I was there, (there is some big 90´s hair in the photos to prove it!). And still, I am so impressed by all the detail this book goes into. I´m proud of you, husband, and I am proud to be a part of the Garth Brooks phenomenon and The First Five Years. Oh, and you get more handsome with each year that passes. True story. I love you.

Taschenbuch 568 Seiten, Verlag Books on Demand, Sprache: Englisch ISBN-10: 3741248746, 14,8 x 2,9 x 21 cm Der Rummel um den angeblichen fünfzigsten Jahrestag von Rock & Roil erwies sich als nicht ganz richtig. Bill Haley hätte für 2001.... fünfzig Jahre, nachdem er Rocket 88´ abgedeckt hatte, oder 2002 ´´, fünfzig Jahre, nachdem er Rock The Joint aufgenommen hatte, oder 2003, fünfzig Jahre, nachdem er mit Crazy Man Crazy in die Pop-Charts eingestiegen war, eine Platte, die allen Kriterien des Rock´n´ Roll entsprach. Aber natürlich sagte Bill Haley kein Wort; er war 1981 vernachlässigt und allein an der mexikanischen Grenze gestorben, und selbst zum Zeitpunkt seines Todes fragte er sich, warum er Geschichte geschrieben hatte.

English, Paperback, 15x23 cm, 240 pages, discography, rare b&w photos - Born in Bentley, Alberta, Dick Damron grew up as a young rodeo rider and rockabilly singer. He first recorded in the late 1950s at CKRD Red Deer, then blazed a trail to Nashville, recording over 50 singles and 20 albums in Music City since 1961. During the 1970s, Damron became a legend as an ´outlaw´: a wildman on stage, his ´Dick Damron Mystery Tour´ laid waste to many a bar and music hall across North America and Europe. In the 1980s he became the resident country artist at Howard Hughes´ Desert Inn in Las Vegas during the National Finals Rodeo, where he was joined on stage by members of Reba McIntyre´s band, Mickey Gilley´s band, Ray Stevens´ band - even by James Burton (Elvis) and Jeff Cook (Alabama). Voted Canada´s Country Male Vocalist of the Year four times and Country Music Entertainer of the Year in 1985, Dick Damron has also been named Best Foreign Artist in Europe and Texas. The winner of seven BMI Songwriter Awards, his five Number 1 records include Countryfied, which George Hamilton IV took to the Top Ten worldwide. Dick Damron was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Honour in 1994, yet maintains he is merely part of the legend and the legacy of country music. -few copies left!
Gebundene Ausgabe - Parragon Plus- 78 Seiten - Englisch Early Years In 1899 Della Mae Hogan, having ear-lier scandalized her local Missouri com-munity by encouraging local lads to play `kiss-me-quick´ in a variety of neigh-bourhood farmyards, came to her senses and married a house painter, ten years her senior, called Otis Elmer Monroe. Just a few months later, Otis, who had high hopes of becoming a famous artist and moving to Paris, France, took his wife across the border to Mexico, where he was sure that they would save enough money to facilitate their trip to Europe. Instead, in 1902, Della gave birth to a girl, Gladys Pearl, and the Monroes, with their lofty dreams fading, moved to Los Angeles where they had heard that the trams, if not the streets, needed covering in gold. In 1905, Della gave birth to a boy called Marion. Work became scarcer and Otis began to drink. By 1908 Otis was semi-paralysed. He was in the final stages of syphilis of the brain, and the cure was not to be invented for another year — which was too late to save Otis. He died in 1909 at the age of forty-three. Otis´s deteriora-tion had been rapid and terrifying —Della was convinced that her husband had gone mad. In fact, the kind of ...

JOHN, 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee ´´Huey ´Piano´ Smith stands tall as one of the major creators of New Orleans rhythm & blues. Drawing on meticulous research, John Wirt tells Smith´s story here in terms of both joyous artistic achievements and grim, demoralizing exploitation. Huey ´Piano´ Smith and the Rocking Pneumonia Blues illuminates the vital role of a great talent in an important chapter in Louisiana music history´: –BEN SANDMEL, author of Ernie K-Doe: The R&B Emperor of New Orleans Huey ´´Piano´´ Smith´s musical legacy stands alongside that of fellow New Orleans legends Dr. John, Fats Domino, Ernie K-Doe, and Allen Toussaint. His 1957 classic, ´´Rocking Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu,´´ made Billboard´s top R&B singles chart, and hundreds of artists including Aerosmith, the Grateful Dead, the Beach Boys, Johnny Riv-ers, and Chubby Checker have recorded his songs. The first biography of the artist responsible for hits ´´Don´t You Just Know It:´ ´´High Blood Pressure:´ and ´´Sea Cruise:´ Huey ´´Piano´´ Smith and the Rocking Pneumonia Blues fol-lows the musician´s extraordinary life from his Depression-era childhood to his teen years as a pianist for blues star Guitar Slim to his mainstream success in the 195os and ´6os. Drawing from extensive interviews and court records, author and journalist John Wirt also provides new insights on Smith´s professional disappointments and financial struggles in the 198os and ´9os as he battled over royalties from his most successful and profitable work. Throughout this intimate account, Wirt details Smith´s significant impact on rock and roll history and underscores both the longevity of his music—which has entertained and inspired for over five decades—and the musician´s personal endurance in the face of hard-ship and opposition. JOHN WIRT has covered music, film, and entertainment for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the Daytona Beach News-Journal, and The Advocate´s Baton Rouge and New Orleans editions.

(2015-Little Brown) Englisch, Gebunden mit Schutzumschlag, 16x24x4 cm, 764 Seiten, viele seltene s/w Bilder aus dem Phillips Archiv. Mittlerweile fast überall vergriffene US Erstauflage (November 2015). - Sam ´The Man Who Invented Rock n´ Roll´ Phillips, was born on 5th January 1923 in Florence, Alabama, the youngest of eight and the seventh surviving child of a family that lived in a remote rural colony called the Lovelace Community. His father, Charlie, had a gift for farming, which was brought to an end by the Depression. His mother picked guitar and showed the kind of forbearance that allowed her to name her youngest child after the doctor who delivered him drunk and then had to be put to bed himself. And yet from these unprepossessing origins, in 1951 he made what is widely considered to be the first rock ´n´ roll record, Ike Turner and Jackie Brenston´s ´Rocket 88´. He also recorded the artist he still considers the greatest talent with whom he ever worked, Howlin´ Wolf (´I was blinded by the sound of his voice; it was so bad it was beautiful´). He recorded B.B. King and Rufus Thomas at the outset of their careers, until in the summer of 1953 a shy eighteen-year-old kid with sideburns, just graduated from high school, wandered into his studio to make a record ´for his mother´ - and in hopes that somehow he might get noticed.Elvis Presley´s success, and the subsequent triumph of rock ´n´ roll, was initially propelled to an almost astonishing degree by a limited number of releases by Carl ´Blue Suede Shoes´ Perkins, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis from this tiny one-man label. The structure of Peter Guralnick´s dazzling book is a mix of the biographical - particularly at the beginning when Sam was working eighteen-to-twenty hours a day zeroing in on his vision - and the anecdotal. Here is one shining moment in the history of popular culture. And Sam Phillips was the man who brought it all about.
