Présentation de l'éditeur

From Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson of the award-winning hip-hop group the Roots, comes this vibrant book commemorating the legacy of Soul Train—the cultural phenomenon that launched the careers of artists such as Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, the Jackson 5, Whitney Houston, Lenny Kravitz, LL Cool J, and Aretha Franklin. Questlove reveals the remarkable story of the captivating program, and his text is paired with more than 350 photographs of the show's most memorable episodes and the larger-than-life characters who defined it: the great host Don Cornelius, the extraordinary musicians, and the people who lived the phenomenon from dance floor. Gladys Knight contributed a foreword to this incredible volume. Nick Cannon contributed the preface.

Quatrième de couverture

With its smooth, soulful tunes and groovy dance moves, Soul Train launched the careers of countless African American artists and set lasting trends in music, dance, and fashion for more than three decades. To create this unparalleled tribute to the show, Questlove, the brilliant frontman for the Roots, has pored through more than 1,100 episodes of the show and been given exclusive access to its archives to present hundreds of never-before-seen photographs and the riveting, unfiltered story of how Don Cornelius revolutionized black entertainment.

In this incredible volume, Questlove takes you on a journey from the show's conception and first episode in 1971 to Don's final episode as host in 1993. You will learn how all-star performers such as Ike and Tina Turner, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Whitney Houston, David Bowie, Aretha Franklin, LL Cool J, Lenny Kravitz, the Beastie Boys, and Mariah Carey, to name a few, got their start, and get an up-close look at the show's most memorable dancers, and the moves and fashion they popularized.

Soul Train was the longest-running syndicated program in television history. It was beloved by generations of youth, like Questlove, who eagerly awaited every episode, and young music lovers are still discovering it today. It's taken more than forty years for the awesome legacy of Soul Train to be celebrated in a proper way, and this book does just that.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book! 25 octobre 2013

This book was worth the wait and well put together. I enjoyed reading it and looking at all of the pictures. This book has information on Don Cornelius and the artists, dancers, and others who have been involved with Soul Train. The typographical errors are minimal.(That appears to be Bunny Sigler on page 98, not Joe Tex, with Damita Jo Freeman.)This does not take away from the overall layout of the book, which is pleasing to look at. It does a great job with just focusing on the history of the show as it relates to music and culture, which helps to highlight how Soul Train has broken many barriers in television and in music. The only thing that I question is the lack of information about the later years of first-run Soul Train episodes (1993-2006). Then again, Questlove probably wanted to keep this a positive book about Soul Train. Good job, Questlove!

very important reminder. if you are of a certain age, time and period then this book is for you. imagine a time when you had to watch every detail with no Youtube, dvr, dvd, tivo, Vhs, instagram, facebook, myspace, tweeter, etc... opening the book and thinking back is a great reminder of a great way to spend a saturday afternoon. this show always is close to me for many a reason. My uncle use to work on the set and had many stories about Don Cornulius and Sid Mccoy. so many Great performances. Al Green, the Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson, Barry White, James Brown, amongest others turned that show out. the dances, the fashion and the comemricals, theme songs, soul train scramble board, soul train line dance,etc... so many incredible moments and it seems like a whole different world and yet it represented a Saturday afternoon and as important as watching Fat Albert and the Gang like clock work on a Saturday. great photos and alot to be glad feel good about. this was the show that back in the day this was the place to be if you were hip. to me the prime and peak of R&B was 71-83 and Soul Train was on the One.

I was given this book as a Christmas gift. I didn't grow up watching Soul Train regularly because it wasn't available where I lived but I did look forward to watching it whenever I was in the US. This book captures the story of soul train very well. Lots of pictures are contained of not only the performers but the behind the scenes people who made the show happen. I would have given it 4 stars had it not been for the grammatical and photo caption errors that I found throughout the book that suggests it was edited and proofread hastily--if at all. Lastly,given the many people who were directly involved and contributed to the life of Soul Train why was Nick Cannon chosen to provide a weak preface for the book? What makes his weigh-in on Soul Train more valid than the many veterans--performers, dancers, etc who could really provide greater insight and context to the story. Nelson George has a similar book that will be released in March 2014 should be interesting to see how the two stack up.

I WILL ORDER THIS BOOK!! REVIEWING IT BROUGHT ME BACK SOME VERY FOND MEMORIES OF MY YOUTH. I'M 54 AND I MUST SAY THE 60-70'S HAS BEEN A WONDERFUL TIME FOR ME AND SOUL TRAIN WAS ONE OF THE MAIN PARTS OF IT. I REMEMBER WHEN SOUL TRAIN FIRST AIRED. IT WAS ON CHANNEL 11 IN ST LOUIS. THIS SHOW SPARKED A LOT OF THE STYLE WE WORE. AND BABY WE HAD STYLE. IT HAD TO BE...FUNKY!! OUR SYLE OF CLOTHES, OUR DANCES, OUR HAIRSTYLES (THAT "FRO" HAD TO BE "TO-GETHA!") LOL!! THE MUSIC OF SOUL TRAIN...AHH...THE MUSIC!!! THE DELLS, TEMPREES, "STYLIN STY-LIST-TICS!" "THE EBONYS" "THE INTRUDERS" "SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE" STEVIE WONDER, AL GREENE, ISLEY BROS AND THE FIRST WHITE ACT THAT CAME ON (I BELEIVE IT WAS BEFORE ELTON JOHN) WAS THE ADVERAGE WHITE BAND!! AWW, THEY WERE AWSOME!! IT WAS ON LIKE POPCONE. AND WE JUST LOVED, LOVED LOVED DON CORLELIUS (RIP BABY!) HE WAS THE CREATOR OF THIS WONDERFUL SHOW. AND IN HIS HONOR I WILL GET THIS BOOK. GUESTLOVE GATHERED SOME WONDERFUL PICS (MICHEAL JACKSON WAS REALLY A CUTIE BACK IN THE DAY) AND I'M TRULY LOOKING FORWARD TO READING THIS! IT IS HEARD THAT MICHEAL WEAVER (WITH THE OKAY FROM ERVING MAGIC JOHNSON) THAT SOUL TRAIN WILL BE A BROADWAY MUSICAL. THAT WILL BE A BIG FEAT IN ITSELF. LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS BOOK AND THE MUSICAL.
