The Chicago sound lives on!!!! 21 May 2011
By InternetMan - Published on Amazon.com
What a book! I remember those days well. Jackie Wilson, Duke of Earl, Tyrone Davis, the Chilites and many more. Carl Davis was the man back then! And people don't realize that chicago was puttin down some sounds that made it unique just like the motown stuff. Man.....memories!!!!! I'm out. It's about time this man and this towns uniques r&b music was recognized for the important contribution to the music indutry.

An Inside Look Into the Music Business World and Its Artists! Sensational! 15 Dec. 2011
By LinnPenn - Published on Amazon.com
Everyone interested in MUSIC (which we ALL are!) will love this autobiography because it is STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSES MOUTH - from the Chicago Soul Sound real world of Carl Davis! Carl brings us into the ins and outs of the fast pace music business - we learn about his personal life as well as the lives of the artists that he produced. He brings us thru the highs and lows of the business - the money made and the money lost; the chances taken; the 'seedy side'; and the beautiful music produced for the whole world to love! I purchased copies of this book for friends and family members as gifts! This book will open your eyes, will make you laugh and cry, and ultimately remind you of the beautiful Chicago Soul Sound which has never left our hearts. When you finish, you will know who THE MAN IS BEHIND THE MUSIC!

Wonderful book 20 Mar. 2013

If you like learning about the history of America's great music, this book is a good read. The artists that Carl Davis wrote and produced for are outstanding in their own rights - groups like the Chi-Lites. Davis' insight on the business side of the music world is enormous. Davis is definitely a music giant and one of the architects of the "Chicago Sound"!
The Legend! 24 Feb. 2014

Carl Davis has an ego and it comes through in this book. However he tells the truth and he is a legend and HE knows it but then again it is his story to tell. You will not be bored. His ego is a healthy one I didnt mean anything bad when I made that statement. You have to have an ego or be tough to make it in the music business and by golly he made it,
