5.0 étoiles sur 5 Author Booth breaks back, spirit in attempt to convey music 28 octobre 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Stanley Booth has always sacrificed something for his work; whether it's his health or his sanity or his relationships but never his sense of humour. Rythm Oil takes its shape as an overview of Memphis, living on through yellow fever and famine, the death of all its musical heroes, who as it happened, came to Memphis and died there or who were born there and who left never to return. Even Booth, who today lives in Georgia, his home state, can't seem to find it in his heart to repudiate this strange and fascinating town with its greasy river that recently claimed another musical hero, Jeff Buckley. Memphis is a town of contradictions: its streets run north-south and its avenues run east-west, something Priscilla Presley never knew. "It's like she lived in a cocoon," remarks Booth, talking to his mother who replies "She did, it was on top of her head."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A look at the source of all popular music; Memphis Blues. 14 février 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Booth seems to have written this book in his own blood. He lived among and through many of the people who's stories he tells. Booth shows Memphis to be the fountain from which popular music has flowed across the years and the world. Booth exposes the roots of rock & roll, soul and even country music with love and devotion

5.0 étoiles sur 5 All roads lead to Memphis 10 septembre 2001
Par Bill McIntosh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book really captured the true essence of the influence of Memphis on the world music scene. Popular music is poorly written about and is normally glamorized or scandalized. This book really seems to capture the true essence of the music, the musicians, and the times. This book was so interesting to me I went to Memphis last summer on vacation and went to many of the old out of the way musical history spots in Memphis.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Musicians and Lives of Friction 13 octobre 2010
Par Doctor Moss - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is a collection of writings about the South (mainly Memphis), its musicians, and its music. Booth has gotten to know and hang out with musicians as diverse as Furry Lewis, Al Green, Phineas Newborn, Jr., and Keith Richards (okay, he's not from the South). And his portraits of each gets right to what makes them tick.

The most poignant, for me, was the chapter on Phineas Newborn, Jr., someone I hadn't known much about. Newborn was a virtuoso jazz pianist, with unmatched style and facility. Booth's portrayal sent me straight to iTunes and YouTube to check out Newborn's music more closely.

But the thing about Newborn, and all of Booth's subjects, is the friction in their lives. Newborn was repeatedly hospitalized for mental or emotional disorders. Furry Lewis collected garbage on the streets of Memphis to make ends meet. Keith Richards is an unholy mess. James Brown ran into legal problems and some obvious emotional troubles. But the personalities, the talents, and the friction are all one thing -- that's what makes these people interesting, more than just "heroes of music".

Well worth the time spent reading, for the background of the music, but more importantly for the portraits of the musicians as people.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Classic of American Music Reporting 18 mai 2014

Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Stanley Booth is an American Classic, as is this collection of his writing. If you love American Roots music, and specifically the music of Memphis, but this book! Booth is a superior writer who has had the good fortune to be in the right places at the right times, and to have the talent to write beautifully about it.
A true Classic of American Music Literature-BUY IT!
