Revolution in the Air: The Songs of Bob Dylan, 1957–1973, Clinton Heylin
4 Clinton Heylin Revolution in the Air: The Songs of Bob Dylan, 1957–1973
Chicago Review Press 161374336X / 9781613743362 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
By far the most comprehensive book on Bob Dylan’s words ever written, including a number of songs that no one has ever heard, this first volume will fundamentally change how his lyrics are interpreted and understood. Arranged in a surprising chronology of when they were actually written rather than when they appeared on albums—the middle verse of “Blowin’ in the Wind” was written much later than the first and third verses, and the songs on John Wesley Harding were written prior to some of the songs on The Basement Tapes—hundreds of surprising facts are uncovered in this catalog of 300 songs, spanning his career prior to Blood on the Tracks. Newly discovered manuscripts, anecdotal evidence, and a seemingly limitless knowledge of every Dylan live performance contribute to this definitive resource of the words of a celebrated American singer-songwriter.

This Land That I Love: Irving Berlin, Woody Guthrie, And The Story Of Two American Anthems, John Shaw
9 John Shaw This Land That I Love: Irving Berlin, Woody Guthrie, And The Story Of Two American Anthems
2013 161039223X / 9781610392235 HARDCOVER Used; Like New 
After a decade of worldwide depression, World War II had begun in Europe and Asia. With Germany on the march, and Japan at war with China, the global crisis was in a crescendo. America’s top songwriter, Irving Berlin, had captured the nation’s mood a little more than a year before with his patriotic hymn, “God Bless America.” Woody Guthrie was having none of it. Near-starving and penniless, he was traveling from Texas to New York to make a new start. As he eked his way across the country by bus and by thumb, he couldn’t avoid Berlin’s song. Some people say that it was when he was freezing by the side of the road in a Pennsylvania snowstorm that he conceived of a rebuttal. It would encompass the dark realities of the Dust Bowl and Great Depression, and it would begin with the lines: “This land is your land, this land is my land….” In This Land That I Love, John Shaw writes the dual biography of these beloved American songs. Examining the lives of their authors, he finds that Guthrie and Berlin had more in common than either could have guessed. Though Guthrie’s image was defined by train-hopping, Irving Berlin had also risen from homelessness, having worked his way up from the streets of New York. At the same time, This Land That I Love sheds new light on our patriotic musical heritage, from “Yankee Doodle” and “The Star-Spangled Banner” to Martin Luther King’s recitation from “My Country ’Tis of Thee” on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in August 1963. Delving into the deeper history of war songs, minstrelsy, ragtime, country music, folk music, and African American spirituals, Shaw unearths a rich vein of half-forgotten musical traditions. With the aid of archival research, he uncovers new details about the songs, including a never-before-printed verse for “This Land Is Your Land.” The result is a fascinating narrative that refracts and re-envisions America’s tumultuous history through the prism of two unforgettable anthems.

2012 0956446027 / 9780956446022 TRADE PAPERBACK Used; Like New 
What really went on behind the doors of the world's top studios while recording the Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and R.E.M.? How did producers deal with the legendary egos of the Bee Gees, Madonna and the Police? Or the haunted perfectionism of Michael Jackson, Phil Spector and Whitney Houston? And how between the drugs, the sex, the tiffs and the tantrums did some of the most iconic tracks of our times ever get recorded in the first place? In Classic Tracks , New York Times best-selling author Richard Buskin unearths the real stories behind 75 seminal recordings, including: * How John Lennon put his 15-month drink-and-drugs-fueled "lost weekend" on hold to nail his only number 1 hit * Why the Sex Pistols were allowed to sleep in the studio as police investigated complaints about them during a session for God Save the Queen * How Donna Summer's "Love to Love You Baby" was extended to enhance the sex life of the record company's president * How hard-boiled Southern musicians coped with Bob Dylan's unconventional work methods * Why the Police required a referee as well as a producer during the volatile sessions for "Every Breath You Take" * How the Rolling Stones recorded their smash hit "Start Me Up" without spending any time together in the studio From rock to rap, pop to hip-hop, soul to metal, punk to disco, and jazz to electronica, each chapter draws on the recollections of engineers, producers and artists to tell the inside story of an era-defining recording, with detailed information about the equipment and recording techniques used. From Les Paul (1951) to the xx (2009), and with tracks from Elton John, the Doors, Public Enemy, the Who, Fleetwood Mac and many, many more, Classic Tracks offers a rare insight into the mindsets and creative processes of the finest musical artists of the past six decades, and reveals how often against the odds some of the all-time biggest-selling recordings came into being.

13 Spencer, Jeremy Death Punch'd: Surviving Five Finger Death Punch's Metal Mayhem
0062308106 / 9780062308108 Used; Very Good 
Remainder Mark. From the cofounder of Five Finger Death Punch, a fascinating inside account of one of the most successful heavy-metal bands of the past decade, and a revealing personal journey through the wild highs and terrifying lows of the rock and roll lifestyle—a wry and rollicking tale of music, addiction, and recovery. Hailed by the New York Times as one of the most unexpectedly consistently popular bands on the rock charts, Five Finger Death Punch has become the new heavyweight champ of the metal scene. In this high-energy memoir, Jeremy Spencer, the band’s cofounder and drummer, takes us onstage and behind the scenes, on tour and into the studio to tell the band’s story and his own. Death Punch’d is a detailed in-depth account of the group’s origins and influences, as well as the infighting and tensions that, when channeled properly, result in the music fans love. It is also the hard-charging, laugh-out-loud tale of how a mischievous boy rose from small-town Indiana to rock royalty—and how he nearly destroyed it all for a good time. Told in his unique, self-deprecating voice, filled with his twisted and humorous take on living the sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll dream turned nightmare, and including dozens of photos, Death Punch’d is a lively, no-holds-barred ride and an inspiring cautionary tale that offers lessons for us all.
