Kindle: Roger Eagle - Sit Down by Bill Sykes
An occasional series where the site makes the most out of the amazon "look inside" to provide some heads up reading on both old and new books available on kindle. This time a kindle preview revisit to a book that news of was originally posted up back in 2012
Sit Down! Listen To This! The Story of Roger Eagle by Bill Sykes
Bill Sykes (Author), Elliot Rashman (Foreword)
When Roger Eagle rode into Manchester in the early 1960s, the music scene was dominated by imported pop and the hippest clubs were 200 miles away in London. Yet this man would become a pivotal figurehead in changing all that.
Fortune led him to a job putting records on at The Twisted Wheel. Ignoring the thriving Beat scene, Roger promoted gigs by and played the recordings of the original Blues and Rhythm and Blues artists, often bringing them over from the States at his own expense. The club's music policy, at odds with just about everything else in the country at the time, was an instant hit and crowds flocked to the Wheel all-nighters from all over the country.
Well seeing that the Kindle version is now selling at the remarkable price of £4, plus with the fact that the site kindle preview feature wasn't around back in2012 and it has a good video, well I say its a worthwhile revisit
Now £4 for the Kindle version - see the preview below and £8 for hardback inc postage @ the publishers via the link below
