Revue de presse

“A kaleidoscopic trip through one of the brightest zones in the evolution of American culture.” (Booklist)

“George’s in-depth look at a revered TV show is one of those rare music-centric books that will transcend its subject’s core fan base. Even those with just a casual interest in Soul Train will be happy to take this trip.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“30 years of rapier-keen social history and street-savvy cultural criticism.” (USA Today)

“George’s book does a great job of assessing the sociological, stylistic and economic power of ‘Soul Train.’” (New York Daily News)

“The definitive book on ‘Soul Train’” (New York Times Book Review)

“George is one of the best music writers around… he crafts a compelling narrative.” (Andrea Battleground, AV Club)

“A loving history.” (Pitchfork.com)

“An engaging read for those wanting to understand more clearly why Soul Train is such a monumental part of popular-music history.” (SoulTracks.com)

Présentation de l'éditeur

An authoritative history of the groundbreaking syndicated television show that has become an icon of American pop culture, from acclaimed author and filmmaker Nelson George, “the most accomplished black music critic of his generation” (Washington Post Book World).

When it debuted in October 1971, seven years after the Civil Rights Act, Soul Train boldly went where no variety show had gone before, showcasing the cultural preferences of young African-Americans and the sounds that defined their lives: R&B, funk, jazz, disco, and gospel music. The brainchild of radio announcer Don Cornelius, the show’s producer and host, Soul Train featured a diverse range of stars, from James Brown and David Bowie to Christine Aguilera and R. Kelly; Marvin Gaye and Elton John to the New Kids on the Block and Stevie Wonder.

The Hippest Trip in America tells the full story of this pop culture phenomenon that appealed not only to blacks, but to a wide crossover audience as well. Famous dancers like Rosie Perez and Jody Watley, performers such as Aretha Franklin, Al Green, and Barry White, and Cornelius himself share their memories, offering insights into the show and its time—a period of extraordinary social and political change. Colorful and pulsating, The Hippest Trip In America is a fascinating portrait of a revered cultural institution that has left an indelible mark on our national consciousness.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Does SOUL TRAIN deserve a better book than THE HIPPEST TRIP IN AMERICA? 12 mai 2014
Par Stacy Helton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Does SOUL TRAIN deserve a better book than THE HIPPEST TRIP IN AMERICA, journalist Nelson George’s slapdash examination of what was often referred to as the “black AMERICAN BANDSTAND”? Most definitely; however, George creates an enjoyable read but skips around so much, paying little attention to the times, both tumultuous and serene, that made up the late 1960s through the mid-2000s. Lip service chapters are given to the fashion and the music, as well as the shows’ roots, but little is revealed about the late Don Cornelius and the lasting legacy the show has left, with the exception of Questlove, who seems to be the only person who remembers the show fondly. The rest of the big is page after page of dancer biographies with few pictures. With the exception of Rosie Perez and Nick Cannon, none stand out, though there reflections are valid. This is apparently a companion book to the VH-1 special, but George points out that the doc is unavailable on DVD due to music clearance issues. It just seems to me that a big that celebrated the black experience from the days of the 1960s riots through 9/11 should have more sociology and history and less reflections on the history of dance.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Nelson George's weakest book 5 juin 2014
Par Scott Boggs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book was a huge disappointment. It's short. Just 256 pages. There isn't very much new information. It doesn't feel like George did a great deal of research. I think most hardcore fans of Soul Train our age could write more pages than that with no research and just our memories of this iconic show. The biggest disappointment? He mentions several individual dancers (other than Jody Watley and Jeffrey Daniel) from the show and THERE ARE NO PICTURES OF ANY OF THEM. A lot of the music that was used on the show over the years is trashed by George. He does get across the importance of Don Cornelius as a producer and businessman, but it's far too brief and you can't tell this story without pictures while trashing the music. Oh, and the early Chicago years of Soul Train, which some argue was the best period of the show, is dismissed in a few pages.

Great job, brought back many good memories of watching the show. Also had me going to Google the names of the dancers that I didn't know.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Soul Train 6 juin 2014
Par Daria Spain - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book was good, but not great. There was plenty of information about Soul Train, but I think there should have been more about Don Cornelous personal life because it would have gave the reader more understanding about Soul Train. There were also many questions left unanswered. For example, the book didn't elaborate too much snout Don not really enjoying rap music. The both didn't discuss what Don's family members thought about Soul Train. And the book didn't go into much detail about what impact Don had about the change in direction of Soul Train in the 80s and 90s in comparison to the previous decade. I know the book was about Soul Train per se, but Don is synonymous with Soul Train, and I would have liked to have learned just as much about Don. At the conclusion of the book, I still did not quite grasp Don. But the book was still enjoyable and informative.
