Known as the "Father of Festival Sound," Bill Hanley (b. 1937) made his indelible mark as a sound engineer at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Fair. Hanley is credited with creating the sound of Woodstock, which literally made the massive festival possible. Stories of his on-the-fly solutions resonate as legend among festivalgoers, music lovers, and sound engineers. Since the 1950s his passion for audio has changed the way audiences listen to and technicians approach quality live concert sound. John Kane examines Hanley’s echoing impact on the entire field of sound engineering, that crucial but often-overlooked carrier wave of contemporary music. Hanley’s innovations founded the sound reinforcement industry and launched a new area of technology, rich with clarity and intelligibility. By the early seventies the post-Woodstock festival mass gathering movement collapsed. The music industry shifted, and new sound companies surfaced. After huge financial losses and facing stiff competition, Hanley lost his hold on a business he helped create. By studying both his history during the festivals and his independent business ventures, Kane seeks to present an honest portrayal of Hanley and his acumen and contributions. Since 2011, Kane conducted extensive research, including over one hundred interviews with music legends from the production and performance side of the industry. These carefully selected respondents witnessed Hanley’s expertise at various events and venues like Lyndon B. Johnson’s second inauguration, the Newport Folk/Jazz Festivals, the Beatles' final tour of 1966, the Fillmore East, Madison Square Garden, and more. The Last Seat in the House will intrigue and inform anyone who cares about the modern music industry.

What happened to the Bay City Rollers is one of the greatest scandals in music industry. When The Screaming Stops reveals the dark truth behind 'rollermania', the pioneering boy band fad which gripped the UK in the seventies, exposing the sinister undercurrents which underpinned the band's phenomenal success. Dazzled by sudden global fame and under the grip of their Svengali manager Tom Paton, the Bay City Rollers descended into a world of depravity, victimhood, crime and psychosis. Whilst promoting his young lads as clean-living teetotalers, Tom Paton subjected them to various forms of sexual abuse; band members became hooked on drugs and their fall was almost as rapid as their rise, leaving them penniless and emotionally destroyed. In 1979, Paton was finally convicted of gross indecency with teenage boys. That such exploitation could have happened to one of the world's most famous boy bands is a brutal reminder that conspiracies of silence about sexual exploitation were once the norm in the music and entertainment business. The Dark History Of The Bay City Rollers is a no-holds-barred expose of sex, drugs and financial mismanagement based on over 500 hours of interviews with many of the band's closest associates, including former members. When The Screaming Stops includes curated music. Whilst you read the book, hear the classic songs of the Bay City Rollers and surround yourself with the music that surrounded them.

"Philip Norman's biography of the Beatles is an account of their lives, their music, and their times. Now brought completely up to date, this epic tale charts the rise of four scruffy Liverpool lads from their wild, often comical early days to the astonishing heights of Beatlemania, from the chaos of Apple and the collapse of hippy idealism to the band's acrimonious split. It also describes their struggle to escape the smothering Beatles' legacy and the tragic deaths of John Lennon and George Harrison." "Shout! is essential reading not just for Beatles fans but for anyone with an interest in pop music."--BOOK JACKET.

The Granada circuit was notable for its many large cinemas with distinctive interiors by the Russian-born designer Theodore Komisarjevsky. Its more opulent buildings, like the celebrated Granadas at Tooting and Woolwich in Gothic idiom, have been aptly described as cathedrals of the movies. This history covers individually the cinemas built and opened by the circuit in the 1930s. It also deals with older Bernstein cinemas, some rebuilt as modern Granadas; the Granadas that were proposed and never built; and the acquisition of numerous cinemas. There is a list of films given a special Granada release and of the famous pantomimes. Also featured are reminiscences by former Granada managers, projectionists and executives, a rich array of photographs (some in full colour), and press advertising.
