Présentation de l'éditeur

A Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Library Book!

The new book by Mike Morsch features interviews with Rock luminaries such as Hall & Oates, Stevie Van Zandt, Dave Mason, Edgar Winter, Joe Vitale, The Doobie Brothers, Al Stewart and more. The Vinyl Dialogues offers the stories behind 31 of the top albums of the 70s, including backstories behind the albums, the songs, and the artists.

It was the 1970s: Big hair, bell-bottomed pants, Elvis sideburns and puka shell necklaces. The drugs, the freedom, the Me Generation, the lime green leisure suits.

And then there was the music and how it defined a generation. The birth of Philly soul, the Jersey Shore Sound and disco.

It's all there in "The Vinyl Dialogues," as told by the artists who lived and made Rock and Roll history throughout the decade.

Throw in a little political intrigue - The Guess Who being asked not to play its biggest hit, "American Woman," at a White House appearance and Brewer and Shipley being called political subversives and making President Nixon's infamous "enemies list" - and "The Vinyl Dialogues offers a first-hand snapshot of a country in transition, hung over from the massive cultural changes of the 1960s and ready to dress outrageously and to shake its collective booty. All seen through the eyes, recollections and perspectives of the artists who lived it and made all that great music on all those great albums.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Backstories of Classic 70s Albums 9 juin 2014
Par Jack Leitmeyer - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
A must read for music lovers. Great inside stories of some classic 70s albums. What giant hit was originally called "the double drum song"? What instrument does Al Stewart think sounds like a "wounded cow" on his classic song "Year of the Cat"? What Beatle did Ian McLagan of the Faces call "a bit of a prude"? How did Doug Clifford of CCR get the nickname "Cosmo"? The book covers a wide genre of music- from Renaissance and Edgar Winter to the Statler Brothers and David Cassidy. But each chapter kept my interest, even for those albums that weren't my favorites of that era. And I'm inspired to now purchase some of the ones that slipped under my radar. My biggest problem was trying to decide if I wanted to read it from start to finish, or go right to the chapters on my favorite performers first. Either way works. I can't wait for a volume 2!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Vinyl Dialogues....great book to own...lyrics in it's own way... 12 juillet 2014
Par Cingee - Publié sur
I initially bought this book because Mike included the band PLAYER...when it came in less time than what I anticipated, I was so happy....and then I opened the book...and I was much information on so many outstanding musicians...much of which I didnt know at all...great writing style...loved that he dove in and gives the goods without writing things that you might find on a CD jacket cover....made me want to get to see bands that I havent seen before....the price is peanuts for what you get...a great read....and so worth owning your own copy.....!!!

I've been in radio for 36 years. The Vinyl Dialogues had story after story that I knew nothing about. It contains great story after great story. If you love music from the 70's and the bands that made all the hits, you'll love The Vinyl Dialogues. A must have collection of priceless stories you never knew existed!

While I've met Mike before and read his work in the local newspapers, it was great to see his work anthologized and reworked to fit the theme. I appreciated that he didn't retell the same "rock stories" that I've read 100 times, and chose subjects and albums that I wasn't AS familiar with. Each chapter is concise and informative and a fun, easy read
1.0 étoiles sur 5 Reads like a local newspaper 17 septembre 2014
Par Q-Rid 218 - Publié sur
This was a pretty tough slog... When the cover says "as told by the artists," it's quite literal! This "book" reads like 270 pages of blandly-written local newspaper interviews. In fact, given the one-to-one sentence-to-paragraph ratio and the overall syntax, I'd be willing to bet that's exactly what "The Vinyl Dialogues" is. Rather than taking the stories related by the artists and transforming them into engaging prose - think "Moneyball" or "The Blind Side" - the author opted to simply transcribe, word for word, what the person said. It quickly falls into a mind-numbing rhythm in which every other sentence is punctuated by "said [name]." The text is so over-saturated with quotes, quotes within quotes, italics, dashes, and annoying parentheses, that the eye literally aches trying to get through it. Some of the material is interesting, but the presentation is simply not worth the effort.
