    1. The blues are my life s bedrock I came to love soul through loving the blues I came to love gospel through loving soul The author tells some of the story in the words of the artists themselves AND her writing is sublime Read her description of Aretha Franklin doing sound checks and rehearsing with her band Ten feet from the epicenter, I felt the first note square in the solar plexus It hummed through every membrane in the room, saturated the gouged acoustic baffling, rising higher, louder, in a [...]


    2. Really interesting dense account of the birth growth of soul music throughout the mid 20th century A lot of first hand interviews, stories information Some of the stories have to be read to be believed.


    3. Do you like good music Sweet Soul Music The definitive guide to the personalities, stars and outrageous talent that went into creating the soundtrack for the second half of the 20th century and beyond Gerri Hirshey interviewed all the still living legends in the early 1980 s while most were still working hard on the circuit The result is a unique insight into the mindsets and anxieties of such disparate musicians as Screaming Jay Hawkins, James Brown, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Ben E King, Wilso [...]


    4. I have such respect for Gerri Hirshey this book is full of great interviews with Soul artists, and Hirshey lets them tell the heartaches and highlights their own ways Soul music is so wonderful when it s full of feeling, and many of the artists brilliantly turn pain into pleasure The roster of geniuses she caught twenty or so years after the height of soul music s dominance is impressive James Brown, Solomon Burke, Aretha Franklin, Martha Reeves, and on and on Riveted by this book


    5. The anecdotal story of modern soul music as told in a series of portraits of some of its greatest practitioners Sometimes the book reads as though it began as the story of Motown Records but the project was abandoned as access to Barry Gordy grew impossible to obtain Nonetheless, the author s unabashed love of the music is one of her greatest strengths Do you like soul music Sweet soul music This is a book for you.






    6. I read this sometime before the 1990s picked up, at my grandparents house, in this paperback edition, and loved it.Highly recommended.
