Synopsis:

 

            As the turbulent 60's began to fade into the calmer 70's, a coterie of young singers, songwriters, musicians, artists, and poets began to congregate, musically on the stage of The New Bijou Theater - the Springfield, Missouri nightclub that would become the loose-knit group's home. What started as an informal weekly gathering, quickly morphed into a formal band.    Dubbed the Family Tree, they became a favorite of the local counter-culture, as well as a continuation of the tradition-rich, Springfield music scene - which, until recently

About the Author:

''Writing is writing,'' claims St. Louis native, Michael Supe Granda, ''whether it's a two-line poem, a three-minute pop song, or a five-hundred page book. The process is the same. Writing a book, though, is much harder and takes a lot, lot longer.'' Along with having his songs recorded by luminaries, such as Chet Atkins, Augie Meyers, Walter Egan and Billy Bremner, Supe has finally put pen to paper to chronicle the thirty-seven year career of his band, the Ozark Mtn. Daredevils.

This isn't the first time his words have found their way into print. Throughout the 80's and 90's, he wrote numerous essays about music, politics and baseball, which found their way into books and periodicals. His account of his foray into the political arena - when he ran for the Missouri House of Representative in 1990 - found its way into Dave Marsh's book, ''50 Ways to Fight Censorship''. His musical musings found their way into the Springfield News-Leader, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and the Nashville Scene. His off-beat views on baseball found their way into several official magazines of the St Louis Cardinals.

''I figured that if I could string thirty, or so, 1,500 word essays about the band together, I could shape them into a book.'' Thus, 'It Shined'.

In 1964, after seeing the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show, he traded in his boyhood dreams of baseball gloves for an adolescent guitar and a serious case of rock 'n' roll tunnel vision. At the end of the 1960s, he aimed his life to Springfield, Missouri, where he would meet and help form the Daredevils. At the beginning of the 90's, he relocated his life to Nashville, where he continues to write and record his songs, run his record label and publishing company.

Book Description AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.As the turbulent 60 s began to fade into the calmer 70 s, a coterie of young singers, songwriters, musicians, artists, and poets began to congregate, musically on the stage of The New Bijou Theater - the Springfield, Missouri nightclub that would become the loose-knit group s home. What started as an informal weekly gathering, quickly morphed into a formal band. Dubbed the Family Tree, they became a favorite of the local counter-culture, as well as a continuation of the tradition-rich, Springfield music scene - which, until recently, included the Ozark Jubilee (the nation s first televised country music show). Though unprofitable at the time, they stuck to their guns and their original songs. When a rough tape of an early Bijou gig caught the ear of music mogul, John Hammond, it culminated in a 26-song studio demo, which caught the ear of A and M executive, David Anderle. The group signed with the label, changed their name to its present moniker, and whisked off to London to record their debut album under the tutelage of Glyn Johns. The album contained If You Want to Get to Heaven. Their subsequent album, recorded in rural Missouri, contained Jackie Blue. Both songs remain staples on classic rock radio. By the early 80 s, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils found themselves right where the Family Tree had stood a decade before - in Springfield with no record deal. They did, though, find themselves with legions of loyal fans around the world. Amidst personnel changes, personal turmoils and a cornucopia of tales from the rock-n-roll highway, the next twenty years were spent on the road . Though continuing to write, they could garner little interest among the rapidly modernizing music industry - a situation many long-haired, long-named hippie bands of the 70 s find themselves in. Their music, though, lives in the hearts of their fans. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781434391667
