“The R & B, Soul and Funk Trunk” (Includes Video Notebook Links at the End of the Manuscript)
This eBook traces as far back as Fats Domino and that version of R & B all the way until Disco started to infiltrate the international psyche. James Brown, Aretha, Michael Jackson, they are all there in the eBook.
It is “We The Music-Buying People” who care because of the memories and quality this music reminds us of. We are the ones who must keep the flame burning and continue to listen to Marvin Gaye, Sly & the Family Stone, War and Kool & the Gang’s contributions to OUR lives. Art is about the AUDIENCE, not the artists. It is about who WE love and appreciate.
The consumer always decides what will really sell, not the supplier. They are lucky when they get it right. The consumer NEVER gets it wrong. If it is great and the timing is right, it becomes a long-lasting hit song that lives in our memory. That is what these eBooks are about.
Hopefully you will read or hear about someone or some act that interests you enough to check it out and keep the flame burning for these treasure genres of popular music.
