Cadillac Records by Darnell Martin( Visual )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 1,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chess Records was located on the south side of Chicago. In 1947, it began recording blues music with Muddy Waters and Little Walter. This eventually gave birth to rock and roll in 1955 with Chuck Berry. Record producer Leonard Chess has an ear for this different type of music and believes he can cash in by signing up new talent such as songwriter Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, and Etta James. Chess makes all of his artists part of his family and takes care of them. This is not easy since they spend a small fortune on booze, drugs, and the high life. When Chuck Berry goes to jail, Leonard is able to find another talented performer, Etta James, to take his place. In the late sixties, as their music goes out of favor, Leonard Chess gets out of the record business

Michael McAlpin collection by Michael McAlpin( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Michael McAlpin Collection consists primarily of print materials used in the production of the PBS television documentary Record Row: the Cradle of Rhythm and Blues, which first aired in February 1997. VHS tapes of the rough cut and final broadcast versions of the documentary as well as local coverage by PBS station WTIU (Bloomington, IN) are also included. Complete transcripts of interviews conducted for the documentary feature many prominent scholars, musicians, and industry professionals. Between 1950 and 1980, Chicago was home to a score of independent recording companies, most notably Chess Records. Produced by McAlpin, Record Row tells the story of the birth and emergence of the rhythm and blues and soul music industry along a 12-block stretch of South Michigan Avenue known as Chicago's "Music Mile" or "Record Row." It is the story of a group of men and women, largely African American, whose ambition, talent, and business skills created the Chicago sound - a musical style that revolutionized popular music around the world. AAAMC director, Dr. Portia Maultsby, served as a consultant and collaborator during the creation of the documentary

The blues : a visual history : 100 years of music that changed the world by Mike Evans( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"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."--Publisher
