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.

Enfin! Il est arrivé!
Un livre magnifique avec de superbes photos, un très grand format, une présentation soignée, un chef d'œuvre pour ceux qui sont fans de cette période (surtout les 70's) et de cette émission.
Bref une anthologie de Soul Train, cette émission culte qui a vu défiler tous les plus grands chanteurs et musiciens de soul funk.
Il ne manque que le son mais rien qu'en lisant ces pages et regardant les photos, le groove nous envahit et on n'a qu'une envie: danser!…
Merci Ahmir Thompson…

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book! 25 octobre 2013
Par B. C. - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
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!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 classic memories 2 novembre 2013
Format: Relié
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 bought this for my ex-husband as a Christmas Gift. He is a musician and this was the time frame we grew up in and he loved it.
I recommend for every music lover especially from the '70s and '80s and even 90's

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Piece of Work! 16 décembre 2013
Par Kimberly Marable - Publié sur

Just what I've been searching for!

In my quest for attempting to find a book about America's first Black Dance show; "Soultrain" I jumped at the chance to purchase this magnificent piece of work. QUESTLOVE, did a beautiful job of putting together this piece of history. I am definitely a product of the 1960's and 70's dance revolution and the positive affirmations of the "Black is Beautiful" movement. I can honestly say the I truly enjoyed that special part of my young adulthood. SoulTrain, was a part of every young "Black" person I knew growing up. We or I had to watch the show every Saturday when it was aired. I was lucky, I had the chance to watch the show twice on Saturdays. I am so pleased and proud that this piece of historical work is now available to us and my generation. I still continue to watch episodes of SoulTrain on one of the "Black" cable networks. The show beings back a lot of great memories. I wish that we had more positive television shows that depict Black American's in a more positive light. Thank You so very much Questlove, Ms. Gladys Knight, and Mr. Nick Cannon
