Book Description: Southbank Publishing, 2006. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Nowhere to Run is a portrait of soul music as seen through the timeless voices of the people who were there. Just as no one voice is soul, neither can any one voice tell the story of soul. The book presents the recollections of: Ray Charles; Ben E. King; Marvin Gayg; Screaming Jay Hawkins; Aretha Franklin; Smokey Robinson; The Temptations; Diana Ross; Mary Wells; James Brown; Wilson Pickett; Ahmet Ertegun; Isaac Hayes; The Four Tops; and many others whose eyewitness testimonies add up to a lively anecdotal view of the music and the life. From the beginnings of Motown, when Berry Gordy borrowed $700 to gamble on a hunch, the business of soul was a reflection of what was going on at the time in America. Gerri Hirshey draws on an impressive list of interviews, many exclusive, and these haunting tales define a musical phenomemon that helped shape the sixties. As soul music enjoys a widespread revival, Gerri Hirshey's richly detailed narrative celebrates the music that moved the body and soul of a generation. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_1904915108
