Charting the history of the blues from its rural roots in the American South, and focusing on the key musicians and singers who brought it recognition worldwide, The Blues: A Visual History is a unique and fully illustrated account of the development of the blues. This deceptively simple, 12-bar musical form has become the common denominator that has driven the popular music of the last hundred years. As John Lee Hooker put it: "The music we play . . . that music is the roots. Rock music, everything else, is like a branch on the same tree. It all comes from the Blues."

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.

The Beatles Literary Anthology (Paperback): Mike Evans The Beatles Literary Anthology (Paperback)

R511 R409 Discovery Miles 4 090 Save R102 (20%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

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.

Barry Cornell; Illustrated by Mike Evans

If you visit France, or live there, or simply like to laugh, this collection of tales from determined francophile Barry Cornell will keep you in stitches. Make Mine a Kilowatt recounts the delights and disappointments, pleasures and pitfalls, surprises and shocks that await the unsuspecting Anglo Saxon who chooses to make his home across the Channel. It stumbles into topics as various as the French passion for eating the inedible, their often bizarre social customs, their sense of humour and of course their attitudes to the British. This is French life up close and personal, told in a series of hilarious episodes and unlikely adventures that mirror the author's experiences in trying to settle, survive and integrate into his local community in south-west France.

Persistence of the Gift - Tongan Tradition in Transnational Context (Paperback): Mike Evans Persistence of the Gift - Tongan Tradition in Transnational Context (Paperback)
Mike Evans
R1,137 Discovery Miles 11 370 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Tonga, the South Pacific island kingdom located east of Fiji and south of Samoa, is one of the world's few remaining constitutional monarchies. Although Tonga has long been linked to the world system through markets and political relationships, in the last few decades emerging regional and global structures have had particularly intense and transformative effects. Today, because of greatly increased labour migration, people, money, and resources are in constant circulation among Tonga, New Zealand, Australia, and the United States.

In "Persistence of the Gift, " Evans provides a detailed ethnographic and historical analysis of how, in spite of superficial appearances to the contrary, traditional Tongan values continue to play key roles in the way that Tongans make their way in the modern world. But this ethnography is neither that of a timeless "ethnographic present" nor of a remote coral atoll. Instead, like the inhabitants of Tonga themselves, the monograph begins in the islands, and works outward, tracing how Tongans seek to meet their own, culturally specific goals, within the constraints, challenges, and opportunities of the world system.

Tongan culture, like our own, continues to transform in the face of global change, but the changes experienced by Tongans everywhere are patterned and managed by the values of Tongan agents. Both creative and conservative, the emerging transnationalist system continues to be discernibly and proudly Tongan.
