Product description

Review

A book like this is long overdue. Rosetta Tharpe was a major star and a huge influence on the musicians of her day. Listen to her recordings and you can hear all the building blocks of rock and roll. --Joan Osborne, singer-songwriter

"Rosetta was one of the most beloved and influential artists ever in gospel music . . . and she blazed a trail for the rest of us women guitarists with her indomitable spirit and accomplished, engaging style. She has long been deserving of wider recognition and a place of honor in the field of music history." --Bonnie Raitt

"Rosetta Tharpe's life is a classic American tall tale, except that it happened, and, in these pages, you are there." --Greil Marcus, cultural critic

"Rosetta Tharpe was one of my first influences, one of the first people I heard sing. I'm glad Gayle Wald has done a book on her because people need to know." --Isaac Hayes

"Absorbing . . . Very much a woman's story, refreshingly free of Svengalis and impresarios."--Laura Sinagra, New York Times

"Wald makes a good case that Tharpe's R&B spirituals played a key role in inventing rock."--Entertainment Weekly

"Rosetta Tharpe's life is a classic American tall tale, except that it happened, and, in these pages, you are there."--Greil Marcus, cultural critic and author of Mystery Train: Images of America in Rock'n'Roll Music

"Wald's illuminating biography brings the deliciously flamboyant singer to life as gospel's first superstar and a seminal figure . . . Tharpe was a larger-than-life figure in American pop music. May Wald's shimmering book revive her for new listeners." --Booklist

"With the publication of this entertaining and enlightening biography, Tharpe-who reputedly played her electric guitar 'like a man, ' withstood failed marriages, racial and sexual discrimination plus economic hardships-should receive the recognition she deserves."--Publishers Weekly

"Mixing tireless reporting with nuanced and cultural insights, Wald's Shout, Sister, Shout! is about as good as musical reparations get." --Tony Green, Vibe

Synopsis

Drawing on interviews with and reminiscences of family and colleagues, a portrait of Rosetta Tharpe traces the life and career of the pioneering gospel singer, songwriter, recording artist, and guitar prodigy and examines her influence on the musicians of her era.
