Memphis Going Down: A Century Of Blues, Soul And Rock 'n' Roll


ISBN: 1941644538ISBN: 1941644538Für den 15.10.2018 war das von James L. Dickerson (Autor von "Colonel Tom Parker - The Curious Life Of Elvis Presley's Eccentric Manager") geschriebene und 290 Seiten starke Buch "Memphis Going Down: A Century Of Blues, Soul And Rock 'n' Roll" bei der "Sartoris Literary Group" mit folgenden Worte angekündigt:

"For over one hundred years, Memphis, Tennessee, has been the center of musical innovation for American popular music. From W. C. Handy to Alberta Hunter and Lil Hardin Armstrong, in the early years, to B. B. King in the late 1940s, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis in the 1950s, to Otis Redding, Booker T. and the MGs, and Al Green in the 1960s and early 1970s, Memphis music sizzled with a level of creativity unrivaled in the history of American music.

For five decades of the city's marvelous music history, author James L. Dickerson was at ground zero, first as a high school rock musician and then as a student rhythm and blues musician at the University of Mississippi, where his band made history by becoming the first all-white musical group to perform at a black Memphis nightclub, and finally as a Memphis journalist, magazine publisher, and radio syndication owner, who had unparalleled access to many of the music greats of the latter half of the century.

Memphis Going Down is told in the words of the record producers, performers, and songwriters themselves as they reflect on their lives and music and its impact on popular culture. You'll hear legendary record producers such as Chips Moman, Willie Mitchell, Sam Phillips, and Jim Stewart talk about the ups and downs of the industry. And you'll hear the artists themselves: Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Al Green, Bobby Womack, B. B. King, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Rufus Thomas, members of the Box Tops, and the Fabulous Thunderbirds go one-on-one with the author in an effort to understand the mysteries of Memphis music."

In letzter Minute kamen noch zwei weitere CDs – die neu entdeckten Home-Recordings aus Bad Nauheim mit tatsächlich nie gehörten Elvis-Songs wie - "Oh Lonesome Me", "Cool Water" oder "Return To Me", ebenfalls ein 3 CD-Set, dazu noch die Live Doppel-CD von FTD – "What Now My Love".

Was hat der erste Beatles-Drummer, Pete Best, mit Elvis-Songs gemeinsam? Alles im GBE.

GBE war im August 2018 im Memphis Mansion (früher Graceland Randers) in Dänemark. Henrik Knudsen hatte eine unglaubliche Drei-Tage-Party abgehalten, mit dabei - Linda und Sam/Louise Thompson, Dick Grob, James Burton, die Imperials, die Sweet Inspirations-Band usw., alle unterhielten die Gäste auf höchstem Niveau.

Im April/Mai waren wir ja auch in Las Vegas, wohnten dort vier Tage im Elvis Hotel. Diese Stadt hat was.

Viel Spaß beim Lesen wünscht Helmut"

Elvis Presley - Stories Behind The Songs: Volume 1


ISBN: 0995483434ISBN: 0995483434Matt Shepherd veröffentlicht am 03.12.2018 das Buch "Elvis Presley - Stories Behind The Songs: Volume 1" bei "Libri Publishing" und dieses wird wie folgt angekündigt:

"It starts in 1969 - 50 years ago - when Elvis was re-discovering himself as an artist, after years in the Hollywood wilderness. He had just performed the 68 comeback special - showing that he was still able to excite as a performer. However 1969 was crucial to prove that Elvis was not a golden oldies act, but in fact a contemporary artist and still a relevant chart force.

The book looks at those essential 1969 Memphis recordings, it looks at Elvis' majestic return to the live stage, and the huge concerts at Madison Square Garden and the Aloha Satellite Show from Hawaii. Although many of Elvis' countless solid gold hits feature in the book, the author is also keen to explore the lesser known album tracks - all of which he feels deserves their special place centre stage.

This title will help you go deeper into the songs themselves. Featuring images of the author's own record collection, with different record covers from different countries, which will also appeal to fans, lovers of vinyl, and people who enjoy the music of the 50s, 60s and 70s.

The book aims to have the reader look at each song in a different light - maybe go back and play the lesser heard songs and appreciate them in a whole different way after reading the story behind that particular track. If it further builds on the fans' knowledge about Elvis and brings around a bigger appreciation of Presley's music then the book will have achieved its purpose."
