• Groovesville USA

Keith Rylatt's Groovesville USA 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 ads, radio station flyers, newspaper clippings, and record labels.

scans and a chunky A-Z of singers/groups and imprints. Motown gets a mention, of course, along with John Lee Hooker

and Edwin Starr, but for the most part it's the rarely sung and their role in shaping the sonicscape who grab the space

here…
