    Motown - by Pete McKenna

    Sorry if this has been posted before ...but just spotted this new book about Motown ...published September 2020

    https://www.waterstones.com/book/mot.../9781912587353

    Did anyone buy it? Is it any good? Is it another Berry Gordy bio? Does it offer anything new? Who is Pete McKenna? ...the website 'synopsis' doesn't bode well....

    There are many errors in the book that will be obvious to this group. No photos either!

    There are some Motown books that I have purchased over the yesrs that after reading them, I ask myself why. If I were hungry, and down to my last dollar "Would I buy a sandwich, or this record", or this book for a dollar on the resellers market?
    Conversely, someone new to the site asked what would be the one Motown book that they should read and someone recommended "I Hear A Symphony". I assumed I had it, discovered I did not, and after reading it agree, it is the best book about Motown of the 150 or so that I own. And while I am centered on the Golden Age, and a few years before and afterwards, this book went up to almost the present time, certainly Motown The Musical.
