Ankündigung des Verlages:
Suddenly in 1970, they are all over the place. Illegally released records with unknown Dylan material, an unreleased Stones concert and a six-sided report of the Kralingen festival in Rotterdam. The established music industry is dismayed, the press loves it, and music lovers from all over the Netherlands flock to bookshops, dodgy stores and the Amsterdam Waterlooplein market to buy these so-called white records. Despite music playing a prominent role in the socioeconomic change that has been taking place in the Netherlands since the late sixties, it is with the emergence of these white records – the term bootleg is rarely used in the Netherlands in those days – that everything comes together. Yet this fascinating and pivotal phenomena has remained largely unexplored. Until now.

In Little White Wonder Charles Beterams unravels the mysterious tale behind the Dutch white record phenomena, talking with those who produced the records, those who bought them and those who fought them. Their story – often told for the very first time – is every bit as gripping and revealing as the societal upheavals that accompanied their appearance. From the underground, clandestine activities of idealistic hippies and timid students to canny entrepreneurs, the production of white records exposed a gap in Dutch legislation that enabled enterprising mavericks to get – often with permission from copyright organisation Stemra and even a helping hand from broadcasters – their decidedly unkosher records pressed, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

Little White Wonder is also a tribute to those who, on the cusp of great change, had the vision to tread unexplored paths – on both sides of the law – without necessarily sparing themselves. Their actions still resonate today in a music industry that is much more accessible than was envisaged at the end of the sixties."

Memphis Mayhem: A Story Of The Music That Shook Up The World


ISBN: 9781770415089ISBN: 9781770415089Für den 06.10.2020 ist das von David A. Less geschriebene Buch "Memphis Mayhem: A Story Of The Music That Shook Up The World" angekündigt und wird mit folgenden Worten vom kanadischen "ECW Press" präsentiert:

"Memphis Mayhem weaves the tale of the racial collision that led to a cultural, sociological, and musical revolution. Beginning with the 1870s yellow fever epidemics that created racial imbalance as wealthy whites fled his hometown, David Less moves beyond W.C. Handy’s codification of the blues in 1909 to the mid-century advent of interracial music, the birth of punk, and finally to the growth of a music tourism industry.

The city’s musical ecosystem included studios, high school band instructors, clubs, record companies, family bands, pressing plants, and retail record outlets, and it produced a startling array of talent, including Elvis Presley, B.B. King, Al Green, Otis Redding, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carla Thomas, Booker Little, Alex Chilton, Ann Peebles, Jim Dickinson, Furry Lewis, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and Justin Timberlake.

Lively and comprehensive, Memphis Mayhem is a provocative chronicle of finding common ground through music and creating a sound that would change the world."

Inventing Elvis: An American Icon in A Cold War World


ISBN: 1350107662ISBN: 1350107662"Bloomsbury USA Academic" kündigt für den 24.12.2020 das 240 Seiten umfassende englischsprachige Buch "Inventing Elvis: An American Icon in A Cold War World" von  Mathias Häußler  an.

Ankündigung des Verlages:
"Elvis stands tall as perhaps the supreme icon of 20th-century US culture. Yet he was perceived to be deeply un-American in his early years as his controversial adaptation of rhythm and blues music, and gyrating on-stage performances, sent shockwaves through Eisenhower's conservative America.

This book explores Elvis' transformation from America's 'inner enemy' into one of its most potent Cold War weapons, demonstrating the power of popular culture in shaping perceptions of the United States at home and abroad. It reveals how this process was driven by non-state actors such as journalists and record companies, who worked tirelessly to 'sell Elvis' in a hostile political environment, and then later hijacked by US propagandists; culminating in Elvis's influence on the European Cold War frontline.

Häußler demonstrates how Elvis' synonymous identity with US culture proved to be a double-edged sword, as his celebrity seemed to vindicate long-held anti-American stereotypes in Europe and Soviet propaganda about the allegedly materialistic nature of American society. This became particularly stark during the 1970s when Elvis' personal decay seemed to mirror a post-Vietnam, post-Watergate America deeply uncertain of its role in the world.

Tracing Elvis's story from his unlikely rise in the 1950s right up to his tragic death in August 1977, this book uses new archival research to offer a riveting account of changing US identities during the Cold War, forcing us to reconsider the role of popular music and consumerism in the cultural struggle between East and West."
