Motown, Soul & Glamour

Recommended Posts

I don't think it was ever mentionned : in France we had recently a fantastic book on Motown, "Motown, Soul & Glamour", written by Florent Mazzoleni and Gilles Petard.

Wonderfully illustrated thanks to Gilles Petard (former Head of Motown France, record label owner and collector extraordinaire) this hardbound book just came out a couple of weeks ago over here.

The iconography is just amazing.View a few pages here :

It's available from amazon UK for £33.92 with free delivery : http://www.amazon.co.uk/Motown -Soul-Glamour-Florent-Mazzolen i/dp/2268068552/ref=sr_1_1?ie= UTF8&s=books&qid=1261237595&sr =1-1

It's noted paperback, in fact it's a HARDBACK book, really heavy !

From John Lester's review on French amazon :

"Any Motown fan that doesn't get this book is gonna kick themselves in the future. I have spent a whole afternoon just looking through the pictures and I've only gone through it twice and I still need to look again. There are just so many.

I haven't had time to try and read it too - the pictures are just too amazing for words.

There's Temps pic from their Miracle days, a Marvelettes promotional pic that I have simply NOT seen before, the wonderful French EP's....

I am ordering more copies....this is up to the same quality standard as the Motown Coffee Book but it has many more rare pictures of the lesser known groups."

It's Christmas time ! :thumbsup:
