Spanning 40 years, The Beatles Literary Anthology compiles accounts of the Beatles by mainstream reporters, rock journalists, cultural commentators, acquaintances, and friends, including Greil Marcus and Geroge Melly. This extensive collection recounts the groups rise from the Merseybeat music scene; the British invasion that made them icons in the U.S.; their experimentation with song structure and sound-recording technique that redefined pop music; their embracing of psychedelic drugs and pacifism; and the separate paths band members followed after their acrimonious breakup. The Beatles influence on the baby boom generation is also acknowledged in essays by writers on both sides of the pop-culture divide. Conveying the excitement of youth culture during the great social changes of the 1960s, the writers underscore the extremes of a career virtually unparalleled in mass-media history.
For a generation of musicians and fans, the late Ray Charles provided the catalyst that fused the previously largely exclusive genres of jazz, blues and gospel music. In an era when jazz and pop music were seemingly poles apart, the impact of Charles' music was truly revolutionary in that it brought together these strands and fans for the first time. This book traces Ray Charles's amazing story from the abject disadvantage of being orphaned, black and blind in the South of the 1930s to the height of international success. With many quotes and exclusive interviews, including several with Ray Charles himself as well as from those who worked with, or were simply influenced by, the man who more than anyone else could truly be called the founding father of soul music.
A collection of words and pictures from Metis elders in northern Alberta who grew up on the land and watched as the first school was built, roads were plowed, and the Tar Sands industry grew from an experimental factory in the woods to one of the world's largest industrial oil projects. Over the years, the Metis elders have told their own histories to their children and grandchildren. Some of these are now presented in this volume, so that their words can sit alongside other books that document the history of the Athabasca basin.
The confluence of the Fraser and Nechako Rivers is a complicated place. Located just before the rivers meet is a place called the Island Cache, where a community of settlers took up residence in the1920s. The area was initially an island separated by a flood channel. The Cache was a very different place than the city (Prince George) on its border, but in 1970, it was incorporated, and a period of escalating political turmoil began. Integration was swift and decisive, and accomplished through by-laws, condemnation orders, and bulldozers; the event triggering it was a flood. Pushed to margins of society, the people of the Cache survived as best they could. They created a vibrant community, but because it was very different than that of those with power, 'progress' meant the end of the Cache.
