So even if Otis Redding isn't your favourite soul singer - or Isaac Hayes, or whomever - this is worth reading for the story of how an American business could succeed against improbable odds and then fail both for reasons of racial politics and for normal the reasons so many American businesses have failed Great. Feb 14, Fran rated it it was amazing. All details blossomed under his descriptions from the lighted block on McLemore at night to the Bar-Kays.
Miss Johnson was under 5 feet tall, but her love of all the Bar-Kays were everlasting. She never let her grief interfere with her teaching. James Alexander is superman to us, from Miss Johnson to me to my daughter. He is cool. He is kind. Griffin claim the others. I loved the tales of Mr. We first met him selling albums raising money for the U of Memphis School of Music scholarship fund.

Shelves: music. It is a much better book than Dreams to Remember.
Stax was actually founded by a white brother and sister, Jim Stewart and Estelle Axton, who nonetheless had their pulse on African-American music. Respect Yourself covers the various artists associated with Stax, such as Booker T. It traces the history of Stax and covers the bad deals that it had with larger corporations, which also sucked the vitality of Stax.
Moreover, the story of Stax is told against the social and political backdrop of Memphis, including segregation, the garbage workers' strike, and the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. There is all sorts of fascinating trivia in Respect Yourself: - Booker T. He hung around all day and Stax agreed to let him audition. They were blown away. They were crestfallen, as they had thought they would be going to New York and the big time. Sam recalled that he cried when he met the songwriters David Porter and Isaac Hayes.
I have a Starbucks CD compilation of Stax music. One of the fascinating items is "What a Man," by Linda Lyddell, a "blue-eyed soul" singer whose career ended early because of threats from the KKK for recording black music.
Surely this is a story that could have been worked into Respect Yourself. Mar 26, Stacy Bearse rated it it was amazing Shelves: nonfiction.
I'm a huge fan of the Memphis sound, music that draws from blues, jazz and rock. I try to visit the city every couple of years. So it is not surprising that I reveled in Robert Gordon's excellent chronicle of Memphis soul music. The book is both a celebratory and cautionary tale.
Gordon's focus is on Stax Records, a mainstay of the Memphis music scene from to Gordon tells the Stax saga in the context of the African-American struggle for equality using Memphis as a crucible for the simmering tensions between conservative whites and freedom-seeking blacks. The story has three arcs: The simple days of creating a new genre of music and building a record company to bring the tunes to a diversified audience The tragic death of mainstay artist Otis Redding and most of his backing band, the Bar-Kays , closely followed by the assassination of Dr.
Martin Luther King And, the hyper-success and the hyper-hubris that eventually led to the downfall of the label I found the book pleasurable on a couple of levels.
It evoked a continual stream of pleasant memories I began listening to music on my transistor radio during the onset of the soul music revolution. And, as one who spent his career in the media business, I appreciated the cautionary lessons of trying to run a fast-growing enterprise without strong discipline.
Gordon's research is meticulous. His style is engaging. And his portrayal of the South in the s is stunning. Note that the author also created a fantastic documentary film based on the book available through YouTube. Dec 29, John rated it it was amazing Shelves: rock-books , reviewed-by-me.
This is the most detailed and deeply-researched book on the Stax Records story. Other books somewhat equalize the contributions by Jim Stewart, Estelle Axton, and Al Bell, but this book presents many more stories about Al Bell than I've read about before.
The book weaves in significant accounts of the Memphis sanitation strike and the legacy of racism. Well This is the most detailed and deeply-researched book on the Stax Records story. Well into the 70s, white Memphis couldn't get its act together with regard to the enormous creativity of its African-American community; in his account of the dispersal of Stax to its creditors, Gordon makes a solid case that the black-run company was an embarrassment to the local economic powers-that-be.
Particularly in the final chapters, the book is a scathing account of Memphis, somewhat redeemed by the attempt to revive "Soulsville" with the new Stax museum and the neighborhood school. Mar 23, Naomi Krokowski rated it it was amazing. Loved this well-written book and highly recommend it! It was a riveting read for me.
I grew up loving the incredible music from Stax and had enjoyed a book Gordon credits in writing this one by the incredibly thorough Peter Guralnick, and admittedly wondered if this book would rehash things I'd learned from Sweet Soul Music by Guralnick. Enjoyed this one so much more! It was much more conversational and focused on just Stax rather than other soul music sources such as Atlantic.
I absolutely ate Loved this well-written book and highly recommend it! I absolutely ate this one up, loving the material about Otis Redding and Sam and Dave particularly. Gordon does a poignant job with the Redding plane crash and the young man who was the only crash survivor, trumpeter Ben Cauley.
This book made me appreciate anew the amazing confluence of things that made Stax music so incredible and enduring. In an era when black and white musicians were unable to eat together, the interracial studio siblings Jim Stewart and Estelle Axton founded created a stunning achievement.
Mar 21, Graham Tennyson rated it it was amazing Shelves: music. Utterly excellent book. A gripping account of the great Stax record label.

This talented bunch of hopefuls crafted some of the most perfect sounds of the era - Green Onions, Do Utterly excellent book.
