English, Closebound, Gebunden mit Schutzumschlag, 16x24 cm, 242 pages - In this exuberant sequel to his prize-winning ´The Jazz Age´, Anorld Shaw captures virtually every aspect of popular music during the Depression. Here is a colorful year-by-year chronicle of music in the ´30, blended with chapters on broader topics - the jazz clubs on Swing Street, the Big Band boom - and spiced with interviews with major figures (such as Burton Lane and Lionel Hampton), who bring a vibrant first-hand feel to the narrative. Readers visit every corner of the music scene. We watch as the Hollywood musical takes off, highlighted by the brilliant Busby Berkeley and the luminous partnership of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. We read about the incredible popularity of radio shows such as ´Your Hit Parade´ and Martin Block´s ´Make-Believe Ballroom´, which brought music to households from coast to coast. And we experience once again the great Broadway musicals of the period - from ´Girl Crazy´ to ´The Cradle Will Rock´ - written by a who´s who of American song: Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart, and Cole Porter. But above all. the ´30s were the Swing Era - when swing bands dominated dance halls, ballrooms, radio broadcasts, and record sales - and Shaw provides superb portraits of Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, and countless others. From Gershwin´s ´Porgy And Bess´ to Disney´s ´Snow White And The Seven Dwarf´, from Woody Guthrie to Ethel Merman, and from the Carioca to the Lindy Hop, here is an affectionate and informative account of this golden era of popular song.
(2005/BACKBEAT) Flexicover, 21x28 cm, English, 304 pages, b&w photos. ´Hey, hey, we´re THE MONKEES´ That´s how Mike, Peter, Davy, and Micky introduced themselves every week to the millions of 1960s TV viewers who tuned in to follow their comic adventures. But who were the Monkees? How did they come together? And what led four young men, who set out to be nothing more than prime-time entertainers, to make great records and a bizarre movie? This book is the most detailed and revealing examination of the Monkees ever written. Andrew Sandoval, the world´s leading expert on the group, gives a straightforward and dramatic account of their day-by-day triumphs and struggles, along with a host of fascinating photographs, many previously unpublished. The Monkees tells the story of the group from their formation in 1965 to their collapse in 1970. No one has ever been this close to the Monkees. It´s as if you are there at the recording sessions, the concerts, the TV and movie shoots, the public appearances, and the encounters with the Beatles, Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix, Jack Nicholson, and other key figures of the 1960s. Along the way, we learn about the epoch-making NBC TV series, The Monkees, that began in 1966 and led to a remarkable run of four consecutive number-one albums and six top-ten singles, including ´´Last Train to Clarksville,´´ ´´I´m a Believer,´´ ´´A Little Bit Me, a Little Bit You,´´ and ´´Daydream Believer.´´ In the 1960s, sophisticates sneered at the Monkees because of the way they were apparently ´´manufactured.´´ Today we recognize them as the creators of some of the finest pop records of all time. This book shows exactly what happened in those chaotic and heady years when the Monkees became the most famous group in America—and shows why they are still relevant today.
