Soul (Book and CD)

by Erikka Haa

Paperback(BOOK & CD)



Soul music precariously weaves between the Christian and the secular, merging gospel with R&B. Its legends include Ray Charles, James Brown, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, and Al Green. Part of The Life, Times, & Music Series, Soul relays an important part of America's culture through music, retrospective photographs, social commentary, and mini biographies.

This distinctly American sound pushed the boundaries of race, setting the trend for today's music. It had its roots in the Negro spirituals but the contemporary music appealed to both blacks and whites, who liked its back-beat. Although soul began to fade in the 1970s, it had already been absorbed into American culture.

Look for all the titles in The Life, Times, & Music Series: The Baroque Era, Big Bands, Boogie Nights, Broadway, Celebrating Christmas, Christmas For Kids, Country, Folk, Going, Going, Gone!, Gospel, Hollywood Musicals, Love Songs from Stage & Screen, Lullabies & Bedtime Stories, My Boyfriend's Back, One, Tow, Buckle My Shoe, Outlaws of Country, The Romantic Era, Satin Dolls, Sentimental Journey, Soul, Surf City, The Story of the Blues, Swing Kings, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Women of Country, and Wonderful Wedding Songs.
