The information of the different bands was fascinating and a real eye opener to the music business in the 60's and 70's. Interesting to find out who controlled the business and the caliber of musicians at that time.
Me the Mob and the music by Tommy James although a different story, studio muscicians played a huge roll in the outcome of the music.
I will view all my rock idols differently after listening to this book. Especially the Beach Boys.
Great listen for anyone interested in rock history. I wish I could see the film that was made about the same group of musicians. Check out Carol Kaye on utube.
This book was very informative and helped me decide if I should take statins. I enjoyed the information in this book, And learned the dangers of lowering Cholesterol to far.
First position. This is an amazing story of courage, faith, love of family and forgiveness. Other stories that I have read that have shown this type of courage are A Captain’s Duty Somali Pirates, Navy Seals, and Dangerous Days at Sea, Unbroken by Laura Hildebrand and South by Earnest Shackleton. Each of these books shows great courage against unbelievable odds. Each of these books has given me the strength I needed to go on with my own battles in my live.
Elizabeth thank you for reading your own story, your voice inflection said it all, and story telling was wonderful. I live in Centerville and remember the search for you. Having four daughters some your age I can’t imagine the pain your parents felt for nine months.
Elizabeth's mother's advice is some of the best I have ever heard. I am inspried by her advice to not give Brian and Wanda any more time or energy from her life.I will try and apply this in my life when something difficult happens.Thank you
Robert Greenberg's knowledge of music form and in depth information of Haydn's life. The discription of how a piece was written and how it related to events in the composers life.
Haydn's relationship with other composer's, Mozart and Beethoven.
Why is it that composers have messed up love lifes and seem to chase the wrong women?
Brhams, Haydn, Tchaikovsky
This is my forth composer lecture of the series and I have three more to listen to. All have been very informative and inspiring.
I love the jokes, I love the enthusiasm, I love the lectures of Robert Greenberg.
Order these lectures today they are inexpensive, Then go buy some great music you can't go wrong.
I don't know if I would have the time again with all the other Dr Greenberg courses I am listening to. I have listend to about fifty four hours and counting. These courses are most invormative.and give you a very good idea of the composers life and the history of the area in which he lived.
His relationship with Van Meck is very interesting, and the story about his Romeo and Juliet.
Ihave listened to Dr Greendergs lectures on Brahms, Stavinsky and how to listen to and understand music 3rd addition I have several others of his courses that I will listen to in the future.
Why to long for one sitting. nice to have it in dailey lectures.
Yes, Dr. Greenberg does a wonderful job brining these composers to life. This is my third course by Dr. Greenberg and I have enjoyed each one.
Dr Greenberg's jokes might be adolesant, yet at the same time he does enliven these courses. He also knows his stuff.
his enthusiasm is fantastic
These courses are a great way to learn about composers and classical music. I plan on listening to all his courses and many others in the great courses series.
This was very informative and enjoyable, as a small business owner I have found the necessity to adopt many of the things the author talks about.
If you are in business I think it is very important that you listen to the ideas of this book.
There is no going back either we adapt to the new computer age or we will go out of business and someone else will take our place.
This was my first Great Courses book. What a treat to learn so many things that I had no real Idea about. I have bought several courses since then and find that if I speed up the voice to 2 times the normal speed I can digest all kinds of information rather quickly. If I had payed more attention in school, this info would not be so new to me. The narrator was very interesting to listen to and gave a perspective of the common man that I found very enjoyable.
A history of that year and the interaction music had with the social issues at that time was completely intertwined for me as teenager at that time. Remembering all the unrest in the nation and the music seemed to match the feeling of the youth. If you are in your 50's or older you will relate to this book. I think the younger generation will be lost if they listen although it would be good for them to see how music influenced us. If you love rock &roll listen to this book
Music me and the Mob or the Wrecking crew.
Yes but did not have the time
This brought back many memories of my youth. I was 11 years old that year and music was playing a major part of my consciousness. I would read books in the back yard listening to CSN's first album. I loved the song Guinevere and Abby road was my first album I ever owned.
I think the author was right on in the end when he commented that today there are to many things that interfere with music listening like video games and access to instant movies. Music was all we had in those days and three channels of TV so the music shaped a generation.
Not so today! We worshipped these musicians
I would if I had the time. Great book, very interesting to find out how the industry was in those days.
Tommy James. It appears that he was very talented and that his talent was stiffeld because of drugs and his relationship to Morse.
