Groovesville - Detroit Soul & R&B ( published 3 of our pictures )

I don't normally post the books and magazines that my wife and I have pictures published in, but this one is a topic close to my heart. I love reading about the history of Detroit, especially those stories that you don't always hear or may have forgotten. My wife and I are fortunate to have 3 pictures included in this 320 page book that was just released in England. It covers everything from the beginnings of the recording industry in Detroit to Coachman's and Fortune Records, The Flame Show Bar, James Jamerson and Earl Van Dyke, and anything you can think of related to Detroit Soul music, including the labels and artists that inspired ( and later became competition to ) Motown Records. Information on the book can be found here: - you can also view a few pages inside the book, etc. A cd has also been released.
