“Think you’re funny, don’t you,” I snorted.

My dad shrugged. “They did everywhere but the Glasgow
Empire.”

I lit the burner under my saucepan of porridge. We were
too economical for Rice Krispies in this house. “Please recall
I’m not your straight man.”

“What use is it having children if they won’t be your
straight man?” he lamented. Read more in Sarah Holliday’s new book One Thousand Dances available from Coral Press #bookstagram #book #bookshelf #mods #mod #1960 #music #blues #soul #musicalfiction #storiesaboutmusic #genre

Willie Lee Reed, a young guitarslinger from Detroit, blows into the South Side of Chicago to challenge the master of the blues, Heddy Days, in a cutting session�only to be beaten by one perfect note. This is a novel of fierce competitions, murder, desire, civic corruption, and powerful hoodoo, exploring how we suffer and fight for the lives we are born to fulfill.

"Above our heads, the PA crackled to life, the instant good-time sound of the Miracles’ ‘Shop Around.’ Kids, well-dressed, ill-dressed, my friends, schoolmates, and neighbours, poured through the front doors and plunged into the current dance craze. The night was underway."

It’s the Summer of Love, and Cynda “Flower” Evans has just run away from her dreary home in Oregon for the glorious Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco. Adventures send her hitchhiking and train-hopping across America: a radical bank job, escape to a timber camp in Montana, a turn disguised as a boy at Camp Wee-Ha-Lay-Ha, and finally a commune called Old Bison. Look at Flower as she makes her way across the music landscape.

Electric blues guitarist Sonny Blaine was the hottest player in Texas, a cool-cat bad boy who seemed to have it all. His kid brother, Walker, shy and plain, wasn’t someone you’d look at twice—until he, too, took up blues guitar. The two driven brothers face off in their music with all their souls, bringing the music of Texas to life.

It's spring 1964, and Fleur-de-Lys Records is sending its Soul Cavalcade around the country: 20 cities in 24 days, a couple dozen singers, and musicians all squashed on one bus. A comedy with Shakespearean tones, a wild romp with blistering music, an always fascinating story with tinges of tragedy, this book gets to the heart of American soul music.
