Ian Snowball has been in touch with a word about an upcoming book, titled Black Music White Britain written by Pete McKenna and Ian Snowball
Planned for a Dec 2013 launch, this books approach seems to be along the lines of a journey through the heritage of black music in Britain
Here's the blurb from the website...
BLACK MUSIC WHITE BRITAIN is exactly what it says on the album sleeve. A journey through the constantly changing heritage of black music in Britain that began on the twenty second of June nineteen forty eight when a former German naval vessel arrived in Tilbury Docks London with a rather special cargo.
Black Music in White Britain aims to both educate but more importantly celebrate some of the most significant, memorable and timeless artists, songs, pioneering record labels and clubs that have left an indelible mark on Britain’s music and youth culture.
For this book we have mainly concentrated on the years stemming from the 1950’s leading up to the end of the 1970’s.
