The Black Music History of Los Angeles, It Roots: A Classical Pictorial History of Black Music in L.A. from 1920-1970
Black Accent L.A. Press 1992 - 096329086X Signed and inscribed by author and musicians James Brown, Shirley Bassey and Hadda Brooks. 1992 first edition, Black Accent on L.A. Press (Los Angeles, California), 8 3/4 x 11 1/4 inches tall black cloth hardbound in publisher's unclipped dust jacket, gilt lettering to spine, copiously illustrated with vintage black-and-white photographs from the Los Angeles music scene, [2], 478 pp. Very slight rubbing to covers. Nicely inscribed and signed by the author on the initial blank front free-endpaper, with the signature of singer Shirley Bassey (b. 1937) on the verso and on the following blank endpaper a long inscription and signature from American pianist, vocalist and composer Hadda Brooks (1916-2002). On page 465, which features a reproduction of a 1968 editorial on American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, and bandleader James Brown (1933-2006), the 'Godfather of Soul' has boldly signed and inscribed. Otherwise, a very good to near fine copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of this illustrated history of the Los Angeles black music scene through 1970, in a very good dust jacket which is nicely preserved and displayed in a clear archival Brodart sleeve. Works signed by James Brown are uncommon. Authenticity of all signatures guaranteed in perpetuity. Note that this is a heavy and oversized book, so additional postage will be required for international or priority orders. ~PP~ [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
