Rhythm and Blues in New Orleans by John J. Broven, Tom Stagg

Rhythm and Blues in New Orleans is a comprehensive history documenting the rise and development of a unique musical form. This volume examines the careers and music of the major R & B artists, as well as the important peripheral activity of the New Orleans music industry: recording studios, clubs and record companies. Much of the material comes first-hand from the musicians who helped create Rhythm and Blues as a musical genre. The book features such R & B stars as Fats Domino, Ray Charles, Professor Longhair, Huey Piano Smith, and Little Richard. More than 100 photographs and illustrations are included, along with a complete appendix featuring a list of best-selling records produced in New Orleans.

He has been an ardent fan and collector of Louisiana music for twenty years and is an honourary member of the Louisiana Music Commission in recognition of his research into the history of the state's music.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!

Sheila Dale

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

Kerry Bridges

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Maggie Crane

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Lovereading is a wonderful way to expand my literary horizons, discover inspiring authors & get the chance to read new novels first. #loveit
