Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

”Somebody has to pay the dues,” says LaVern Baker. Here are the remarkable stories of six dazzlingly talented performers who blazed the R and B trail—the story of the performers music and also of their struggle against racism and financial exploitation: Ruth Brown and LaVern Baker, two of the most popular female black singers of the 1950s; Little Jimmy Scott, whom Madonna calls the only singer who ever really made her cry; Charles Brown, master of the “club blues” style; Floyd Dixon, a more rambunctious fellow-traveler; and the earthy, urbane Jimmy Witherspoon, who recorded some of the biggest R and B hits ever.

Synopsis:

Never before in paperback: The high times--and hard times--of six of the greatest living rhythm and blues artists, told in their own words.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p.[269]-274) and index.
