Description:Full disclosure: I have known the author for many years. This is wonderful book. Even though I know and admire the author, I would not lie about the book. If I didn’t like it, I just wouldn’t say anything. This is a wonderful book. The book is solid scholarship, and it is readable. How often do you see that? It reads like a compelling narrative, which it is, but it also has the complete discography of the Dixie Hummingbirds, and chronicles the racist times the men lived in and overcame. It is equal parts reference for American Studies and a fun read. Highly recommended!
