WOMEN OF MOTOWN  (An Oral History) – 20

A unique view of Motown even if you’ve read every Motown book out there!

 NOWHERE TO RUN Story Of Soul Music (Gerri Hershey) – 30

A portrait of soul music recounted by the voices of the people who were there, presenting the recollections of soul greats such as Ray Charles, Ben E. King, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross. Author Gerri Hirshey draws on an impressive list of interviews to trace the history of soul from the beginnings of Motown to its influence on the musical Diaspora of the 1960s.

 MOTOWN The History (Sharon Davis) – 30

This classic from 1988 is a riveting book about the personalities involved with our favourite labels.

 The BEAT GOES ON (1996 Charlie Gillett & Simon Frith) – 10

The "Rock File" series was published between 1972 and 1978 by Panther and has been out of print for over 15 years. This volume is an anthology of the five original volumes, reprinted with new introductions. "Rock File" charted the trajectory of popular music in Britain at a critical point in its development, from the people who created the music and the industry that manufactured it to the DJs and record buyers who played it. Providing a perspective from writers and performers contemporary with their subjects, this anthology presents the best writing from "Rock File", capturing the dynamic fragmentation of popular music and its audiences during the decade. It investigates the skinheads' challenge to glam rock, and takes a closer look at rude reggae, the Philly groove and Northern soul. It also interprets the deeper meanings of R&B lyrics, heavy metal and the roots of punk. The significance of producers such as Mickey Most and the creation of the millionaire rock star are also examined.

Thanks For Looking,
