Just read Memphis 68, a great read. His writing can at times be overly complex and confusing but he tells two great stories: the fall and rise of Stax during the year from the death of Otis Redding and the assassination of Martin Luther King and the growth of a more militant black power, with Memphis as the backdrop to both.
And loads of fascinating litte stories about the artists and characters of southern soul. Booker T Jones and the rise of the Hammond organ and how Time is Tight started off as the incidental music for a legendary underground art house movie just two examples.
Four gospel choirs out of five.
