This book, a forty-two-year-long life journey, delivered in thirty-two chapters takes you across the country and around the world with a man seeking answers to the age old questions about the meaning of existence. The author’s life is presented chronologically in concise views that are not just personal but tied to the context of the changing times. As it demonstrates a life evolving it also illustrates the environment that informs that evolution. The book takes you from an idyllic childhood on the Jersey Shore in the late 40’s and early 50’s; through the protest days of the 60’s in Berkeley and the S.F. Bay Area counterculture revolution of the 70’s-80’s; to the day after the San Francisco Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989. Vincent Lynch has led his life always as an artist, albeit often in different media with different results. His life as a journey is representative of the times in which he lived, fragmented and in constant change but always from a singular point of view. Whichever role he is playing, it is always executed with the same focused dedication and with the layman’s open acceptance of the unexpected.

This work traces the history of the jukebox from its origins in the invention of the phonograph by Thomas Alva Edison in the 1880s up to its relative modern obscurity. The jukebox’s first twenty years were essentially experimental because of the low technical quality and other limitations. It then practically disappeared for a quarter-century, beaten out by the player piano as the coin-operated music machine of choice. But then, new and improved, it reemerged and quickly spread in popularity across America, largely as a result of the repeal of Prohibition and the increased number of bars around the nation. Other socially important elements of the jukebox’s development are also covered: it played patriotic tunes during wartime and, located in youth centers, entertained young people and kept them out of “trouble.” The industry’s one last fling due to a healthy export trade is also covered, and the book rounds out with the decline in the 1950s and the fadeout into obscurity. Richly illustrated.

Country Soul

In the sound of the 1960s and 1970s, nothing symbolized the rift between black and white America better than the seemingly divided genres of country and soul. Yet the music emerged from the same songwriters, musicians, and producers in the recording studios of Memphis and Nashville, Tennessee, and Muscle Shoals, Alabama--what Charles L. Hughes calls the "country-soul triangle." In legendary studios like Stax and FAME, integrated groups of musicians like Booker T. and the MGs and the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section produced music that both challenged and reconfirmed racial divisions in the United States. Working with artists from Aretha Franklin to Willie Nelson, these musicians became crucial contributors to the era's popular music and internationally recognized symbols of American racial politics in the turbulent years of civil rights protests, Black Power, and white backlash. Hughes offers a provocative reinterpretation of this key moment in American popular music and challenges the conventional wisdom about the racial politics of southern studios and the music that emerged from them. Drawing on interviews and rarely used archives, Hughes brings to life the daily world of session musicians, producers, and songwriters at the heart of the country and soul scenes. In doing so, he shows how the country-soul triangle gave birth to new ways of thinking about music, race, labor, and the South in this pivotal period.
