When the World Stopped to Listen: Van Cliburn's Cold War Triumph, and Its Aftermath

Stuart Isacoff

When the World Stopped to Listen: Van Cliburn's Cold War Triumph, and Its Aftermath by Stuart IsacoffFrom the acclaimed author of A Natural History of the Piano, the captivating story of the 1958 international piano competition in Moscow, where, at the height of Cold War tensions, an American musician showed the potential of art to change the world.

April of 1958--the Iron Curtain was at its heaviest, and the outcome of the Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition seemed preordained. Nonetheless, as star musicians from across the globe descended on Moscow, an unlikely favorite emerged: Van Cliburn, a polite, lanky Texan whose passionate virtuosity captured the Russian spirit.

This is the story...

Billie Holiday

Carlos Sampayo

Billie Holiday by Carlos SampayoBorn in Baltimore in 1915, and dead too early in New York in 1959, Billie Holiday became a legendary jazz singer, even mythical. With her voice even now managing to touch so many people, we follow a reporter on the trail of the artist on behalf of a New York daily. Beyond the public scandals that marred the life of the star (alcohol, drugs, violence...), he seeks to restore the truth, revisiting the memory of Billie. Through this investigation, Muñoz and Sampayo trace, through the undertones of racism, and in the wake of the blues, the slow drift of a singer who expressed the deepest emotions...

Cowboy Song: The Authorized Biography of Thin Lizzy's Philip Lynott

Graeme Thomson

Cowboy Song: The Authorized Biography of Thin Lizzy's Philip Lynott by Graeme ThomsonPhilip Lynott packed a vast amount into his 36 years. An instantly identifiable singer, charismatic stage performer and supremely gifted songwriter, the guiding spirit of Thin Lizzy combined the instincts of a wild man with the soul of a poet.
The first biography written with the cooperation of the Lynott Estate, Cowboy Song explores the fascinating contradictions between Lynott's unbridled rock star excesses and the shy, sensitive "orphan" raised in working-class Dublin. The mixed-race child of a Catholic teenager and a Guyanese stowaway, Lynott rose above daunting obstacles and wounding abandonments....

Rocking Chair

William Ritchie

Rocking Chair by William Ritchie

Music is an abstract force that flows through the heart of the World, for most people, an essential ingredient creating a soundtrack to their lives, but even more than that, bringing peace, meaning, harmony, to a sometimes fractious existence.

Yet music also causes great conflict; each person carries a belief that ‘their

Chrissie Hynde: A Musical Biography

Adam Sobsey

Chrissie Hynde: A Musical Biography by Adam SobseyA musical force across four decades, a voice for the ages, and a great songwriter, Chrissie Hynde is one of America's foremost rockers. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, she and her band The Pretenders have released ten albums since 1980. The Pretenders' debut LP has been acclaimed as one of the best albums of all time by VH1 and Rolling Stone. In a business filled with "pretenders" and posers, Hynde remains unassailably authentic. Although she blazed the trail for countless female musicians, Hynde has never embraced the role of rock-feminist and once remarked, "It's never...

Out of Our Heads: The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Me

Ronnie Schneider

Out of Our Heads: The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Me by Ronnie Schneider

Ronnie Schneider is among a select handful of individuals who can honestly claim to have taken an active part in the explosive beginnings of 1960's rock'n'roll.
After leaving ABKCO and working with Sam Cooke and the Beatles, he produced "history's first mythic rock and roll tour", the Rolling Stones 1969 US tour. Dave Marsh called it one of the "benchmarks of an era.” It was launched on almost no money, rolled across America hand to mouth, and concluded with calamity and death at the Altamont Speedway in Northern California on December 6, 1969. For historians, Altamont came to symbolize the...

Art Sex Music

Cosey Fanni Tutti

Art Sex Music by Cosey Fanni Tutti

Art Sex Music is the autobiography of a musician who, as a founding member of the avant-garde group Throbbing Gristle and electronic pioneers Chris & Cosey, has consistently challenged the boundaries of music over the past four decades.

It is the account of an artist who, as part of COUM Transmissions, represented Britain at the IXth Biennale de Paris, whose Prostitution show at the ICA in 1976 caused the Conservative MP Nicholas Fairbairn to declare her, COUM and Throbbing Gristle 'Wreckers of Civilisation' . . . shortly before he was arrested for indecent exposure, and whose work continues...

The Cake and the Rain: A Memoir

Jimmy Webb

The Cake and the Rain: A Memoir by Jimmy Webb

Jimmy Webb's words have been sung to his music by a rich and deep roster of pop artists, including Glen Campbell, Art Garfunkel, Frank Sinatra, Donna Summer and Linda Ronstadt. He's the only artist ever to win Grammy Awards for music, lyrics, and orchestration, and his chart-topping career has, so far, lasted fifty years, most recently with a Kanye West rap hit and a new classical nocturne.

Now, in his first memoir, Webb delivers a snapshot of his life from 1955 to 1970, from simple and sere Oklahoma to fast and fantastical Los Angeles, from the crucible of his family to the top of his longed-for...

They Desire a Better Country/Ils d

They Desire a Better Country/Ils d by Lawrence ScanlanTwice a year, in summer and in winter, appointments to the Order of Canada are posted in newspapers across the country. The range of professions represented are often dizzying, but there are common themes in the choices: excellence, service to the nation, passion, innovation, commitment, dedication, brilliance. The order's motto effectively captures the generous and selfless spirit of these people: Desiderantes meliorem patriam-they desire a better country. The Order of Canada-our nation's highest honour-was launched fifty years ago in 1967 by Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson. Since then, almost...

Syd Kitchen: Scars That Shine by Donve Lee Skollie, saint, scholar, hippest of hippies, imperfect musician with a perfect imagination, Syd Kitchen was, like all great artists, born to enrich his art and not himself. Plagued by drugs, alcohol and depression, too much of an outlaw to be embraced by record companies, he frequently sold his furniture to cover production costs of his albums, seduced fans at concerts and music festivals worldwide with his dazzling Afro-Saxon mix of folk, jazz, blues and rock interspersed with marvellously irreverent banter, and finally became the subject of several compelling documentaries, one of which -...

Change of Seasons: A Memoir

John Oates & Chris Epting

Change of Seasons: A Memoir by John Oates & Chris Epting

John Oates was born at the perfect time, paralleling the birth of rock 'n roll. Raised in a small Pennsylvania town, he was exposed to folk, blues, soul, and R&B. Meeting and teaming up with Daryl Hall in the late 1960s, they developed a style of music that was uniquely their own but never abandoned their roots. John uncovers the grit and struggle it took to secure a recording contract with the legendary Atlantic Records and chronicles the artistic twists and turns that resulted in a DJ discovering an obscure album track that would become their first hit record. This is not your typical rock...
