Memphis Garage Rock Series
While Sun, Hi, Stax, & Goldwax created and delivered Memphis’ rockabilly, rock, & soul superstars to the world, Memphis was teeming with tons of excellent garage & frat bands in the ‘60s & ‘70s—hundreds of them on every YMCA & VFW hall corner! Ron Hall documented this Beatles’s inspired music explosion in the record-breaking book Playing for a Piece of the Door: A History of Garage & Frat Bands in Memphis, 1960-1975. Hall followed that up with a collectible yearbook documenting many of the garage bands in Memphis entitle The Memphis Garage Rock Yearbook. These two books and the accompanying 3 cds are essential for any fan of nasty garage & soul-inspired garage rock!
