Customer Review

on 24 October 2002
...I have read books on muscic genres/artists before, and had seldom the urge ti buy more of the artists dealt in the book, because of what I had written. But this time it is different. In Guralnick we have the ideal combination of writing skills, knowledge about the subject he is writing about, and he loves Southern Soul. His writing style is a combination of oral history and autobiographical experiences as a fan of Soul music.
The research Guralnick has done is immense, without making his book into an unreadable academic thesis or a synyhesis of old newsclipings and old interviews. And one of the most important things is that Guralnick himself is a lover of Southern Soul.
To finish this off, Guralnick has provided a extensive discography of relevant/interesting/essential records. And it is this combination of very good writing and extensive discography that will cost you lots and lots of money, but will give you lots and lots of pleasure in listening to all this great music, while rereading Guralnick's book.
