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 is the book to read to immerse your self in the battles and the history of the war.
The narration is a s good as it gets.
The ending is very touching as tells of how solders came to grips with there emotions from the war. It was interesting how solders would not talk about the war because they did not feel others understood unless they had been there.

Read this book it is different then the musical or movie worth the time.
I bought this because of a recommendation in our local news paper. I wanted to read the book before I saw the movie, then I found out there was a stage play in London. The story had just enough chills but did not keep me up at night. give this one a try and let your imagine run wild.
Dr. Greenberg does it again. I have finished all of his great masters and have enjoyed every one of them. You will find this lecture fascinating especially how Russian politics affected how he was able to write music and what he was able to compose. I found this music and lecture fascinating.
