Keith Rylatt's Groovesville USA Book
Researched and written by Keith Rylatt, Groovesville USA is the ultimate reference for Detroit Soul & R&B record collectors and enthusiasts.
With over 240-pages, this paperback is packed with a depth of information Motor City freaks can only dream about. As well as a history of the development of black music in Detroit there is an exhaustive A-Z of the city’s artists and musicians, and an equally detailed A-Z of the area’s myriad labels and record companies. The book is beautifully designed with rarely seen artists’ photographs, press advertisements, radio station flyers, newspaper clippings, and 45rpm labels. See and read sample pages here.
Groovesville USA is only available from their website – priced £27.50 exclusive of post and packing. It will not be available from bookstores or online book retailers. The book will be published in February 2010.
