Taschenbuch - 224 Seiten - Virgin Books - 2004 - Englisch Are you ready for the ultimate book of Elvis facts and trivia? Everything you ever wanted to know about the king of rock´n´roll is here: the songs; the girls; the food; the cars; the movies; the lifestyle and the Elvis Effect. Discover the true meaning of what it meant, and still means, to be Elvis Presley. Bob lyan once said that ´Hearing Elvis´s voice for the first time was like busting out of jail.´ Elvis was a connoisseur of clothes:1 like ´em as flashy as you can get ´em.´ By 1956 he owned 40 suits and 27 pairs of shoes In the 1960s, Elvis was spending $500 a week on groceries. He also had Pepsi delivered to Graceland by the truckload. A huge contrast to his poor early days, when squirrel would occasionally grace his family´s table. On 14 January 1973 Elvis performed his live spectacular Aloha from Hawaii via satellite; the first live global show ever broadcast. Over one billion people watched the show, more than watched Neil Armstrong walk on the moon.
Taschenbuch - 268 pages - Nova Books Nashville - Revised. edition - Englisch This book continues the story of a North Carolina country boy, who tried to serve his country in war-time and wanted to play on The Grand Ole Opry. While in the Navy, he suffered a nervous breakdown after being gassed, but overcame adversity to realize his dream of playing steel guitar with six of the big-gest Opry stars. He married a Nashville native, who worked inside the industry, including radio, record labels, music publishing, side-by-side with notables like Porter Wagoner on Music Row, and authoring several music books.Theirs is a true story of the mu-sic scene, then and now, touching the lives of numer-ous country stars, their sidemen, and session play-ers, and sharing their lives and road stories while traveling every highway out of Nashville. Because I have been a ´´sideman´´ and a slightly well-known person, I find How-ard White´s book to be very interesting. A lot of so-called stars have written their biographies, but I don´t remember any significant books written by accompany-ing musicians. I think it will be welcomed by interested people, because of this different perspective. I met Howard when he first arrived in Nashville, around 1951. We have shared many laughs and good times, and he has more friends than anyone I know. I am proud to be among them. Chet Atkins My friend, Howard White, has written this book of stories and tales that have happened to him and his friends along the way. I have a feeling that you might find them interesting. I suggest you read the book. Eddy Arnold The highway goes on forever. In Ruth White´s engrossing new book, Nashville is a place where real people succeeded and failed and overcame, all for the sake of a dream machine called the music business. 7141e4 Michael Streissguth author: ´´Johnny Cash, The Biography´´
Taschenbuch - 756 Seiten - Record Research - 1987 - Englisch AUTHOR´S NOTE This is the fifth edition of TOP POP SINGLES. It is hard to believe that 17 years have passed since the first edition was published in 1970. From that first crude 208-page edition, to this volume, nearly four times that size, I have had the great pleasure to work in the most exciting and unpredictable industry in the world. Researching the Billboard charts, collecting the charted hits, and publishing musical record books has truly been a ´labor of love´. This simple cliche is an apt summary of a career that is really just an extension of a hobby. My initial research of the Billboard pop charts, compiled on 3 x 5 cards, was intended solely as a means of cataloging my burgeoning record collection. With little or no inclination that others shared a devotion to the charts, I felt that my interest in chart statistics and record collecting bordered on fanaticism. It didn´t take long to discover that there were thousands of music fans with a similar fascination of exploring the depths of the Ameri-can record charts. Through the tremendous national and international support of my publi-cations from disc jockeys and record fans, I have been able to expand my research to include not only the singles and albums of Billboard´s pop charts, but also the various other weekly Billboard charts. Followers of the Country and Black charts can look forward to our upcoming expanded revisions of these books, as well as many other projects that are currently in the works. While planning this edition, I wanted to greatly enlarge the artist bio-graphies and various other notes of trivia so that a single volume would offer information on not only the charted hits, but on the artists supplying these hits. So, for most of the top artists in this edition, you will find a paragraph covering the highlights of that artist´s career. I had hoped to provide at least one line of trivia for each of the 4,186 artists listed herein. However, even with all the research at my disposal, I simply could not find facts for many of the ´one-shot´ artists. If you have supporting evidence about any artist in this book who does not have a biographical entry, I would appreciate hearing from you. I will continue to seek out information on these obscure artists and update the notes on the established ones to make further editions even more complete and valuable. A novel feature to this edition are the listings of the peak positions and the various Billboard pop charts under many of the song titles from 1955-1958. During this period. Billboard published multiple pop charts. Now that all chart activity of each of these hits is listed, you can decide which ranking you qualify as the decisive one. Once again, thanks to all of you for your continued support, encourage-ment. and patience in waiting for these revised editions. It is my goal to make these revisions available every two years — a timetable that you can rely on. Please continue to write and let us know of any corrections or improvements you would like to see.
