    Having recently discovered the music of Stock, Aitken & Waterman [[yes, they truly ARE the "British Motown of the '80s!), I just finished reading:

    1) "PWL [[Studios) From The Factory Floor" by Phil Harding [[contains a sessionography and other unexpected treats );

    2) "The Hit Factory: The Stock Aitken Waterman Story" by Mike Stock [[contains an excellent SAW discography);

    and I'm nearly finished reading:

    3) "I Wish I Was Me: The Autobiography" by Pete Waterman.

    "You Know They're Here"....about the famous Hinsdale haunting in New York.
    Just the right time of year. Clara Dandy/Miller, who lived there, wrote the
    first book of the house... "Echoes of a Haunting".

    "Berry, Me, And Motown" by Raynoma Gordy Singleton. It's one of the earlier books devoted to Motown which I hadn't acquired. Frankly, after Berry had written about her pirating Motown records in NYC, I wanted no part of her. But after some of you were recently raving about how informative and revelatory her book is, I decided to take the plunge by buying a copy and giving her a chance. I'm glad I did. I just started reading it and I love it already!

    Thanks, sansradio. I sure will! They haven't even gotten to the part where she and Berry start Motown, yet, on the surface, I like this lady already!

    I have always thought it was a good book; I read it when it came out; was that in the 90’s?

    Yeah, jobeterob, the publishing date is 1990. I don't whether it was ever reissued in paperback form, but my copy is the hard-cover version.

    It reads like a novel. Easily my favourite Motown biography.

    You're so right, 144man. You feel like you're right there participating in the creation of Tamla/Motown from the ground up -- day by day, step by step -- amid each and every thrilling leap forward and every heartbreaking setback. The neat thing about Raynoma's writing is that while spinning her romantic tale between her and Berry, the simultaneous music aspect and Motown story never takes a back seat. I should have bought this book when it first came out.

    Strength of a woman - the Phyllis Hyman story. Just finished it today. Quite harrowing in parts. Not an easy read but pleased I got through it

    Wow, lucky you! I’ve been trying to get my hands on a copy for years; I have an aversion to buying physical books and music online, so fat chance of me finding a copy in a store. Glad you found it rewarding.

    Have to confess I got the kindle sir. The chapter on her passing felt like I was back in time. So sad to discover how she suffered throughout her life. Spooky how I then loaded a CD on random play. It went straight to you sure look good to me. Onwards to the one about Luther now.

    Silly me--I guess I'm too much of a Luddite to go the Kindle route.

    You'll absolutely appreciate Craig Seymour's Luther tome.

    This is my 10th Murakami read; it's delivering so far!

    I highly recommend you start with The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle​; it's a magical-realism ripsnorter.
