(2016/Ace) 2 tracks. ´You Hit Me (Right Where It Hurt Me)’ says a lot about 60s soul music in just the title. It’s about heartbreak, but set to a solid uptempo beat over an orchestral arrangement worthy of Phil Spector. It’s been a massive record since the 70s when first played to crowds of dancers, who can now ditch the dodgy sound of their Canterbury bootlegs. On the flip is the charming, unissued-on-vinyl, ‘I Couldn’t Build A World (With You On The Outside)’ by GWP stable-mates the Devonnes.
From renowned diplomat and musician András Simonyi - whom Stephen Colbert calls ´´the only ambassador I know who can shred a mean guitar!´´ - comes a timely and revealing memoir about growing up behind the Iron Curtain and longing for freedom while chasing the great power of rock and roll. In Rocking Toward a Free World, Simonyi charts the struggle of growing up in 1960s Hungary, a world in which listening to his favorite music was a powerful but furtive endeavor: records were black-market bootlegs; concerts were held under strict control, even banned; protests were folded into song lyrics. Get caught listening to Western radio could mean punishment, maybe prison. That didn´t matter to Simonyi, who from an early age felt the tremendous pull of rock and roll, the lure of American popular culture, and a burning desire to buck the system. Inspired by the protest music coming out of the West, he formed a band and became part of Hungary´s burgeoning rock scene. Then came the setbacks: tightening of control by the state, the seemingly inescapable weight of an authoritarian system, and the collapse of Simonyi´s own dreams of stardom. A story of youth, rebellion, and hope, Rocking Toward a Free World sheds new light on two of the most powerful forces of the modern age: global democracy and rock and roll. Deeply vital and compelling, Simonyi´s memoir chronicles how one man´s tremendous connection to American and British popular music inspired him to make a difference in his country and, eventually, the world. It tells the story of a generation, as played out in song lyrics and guitar riffs.

In Chasing the White Dog, journalist Max Watman traces the historical roots and contemporary story of hooch. He takes us to the backwoods of Appalachia and the gritty nip joints of Philadelphia, from a federal courthouse to Pocono Speedway, profiling the colorful characters who make up white whiskey´s lore. Along the way, Watman chronicles his hilarious attempts to distill his own moonshine - the essential ingredients and the many ways it can all go wrong - from his initial ill-fated batch to his first successful jar of ´shine. It begins in Monongahela, Pennsylvania, where drunk and armed outlaws gathered in the summer of 1794. George Washington mustered 13,000 troops to quell the rebellion, but by the time they arrived, the rebels had vanished; America´s first moonshiners had packed up their stills and moved on. From these moonshiners who protested the Whiskey Tax of 1791, to the bathtub gin runners of the 1920s, to today´s booming bootleg businessmen, white lightning has played a surprisingly large role in American history. It touched the election of Thomas Jefferson, the invention of the IRS, and the origins of NASCAR. It is a story of tommy guns, hot rods, and shot houses, and the story is far from over. Infiltrating every aspect of small-scale distilling in America, from the backyard hobbyists to the growing popularity of microdistilleries, Chasing the White Dog provides a fascinating, centuries-long history of illicit booze from an unrepentant lover of moonshine. 1.

By now, you should know that my official name and title is Willie A.P. Lester Jr., chairman of the deacon board down there at Auburn Avenue Missionary Baptist Church. Unfortunately, yesterday after Sunday morning service, I sort of ended up spending the night in the city jail and I was accompanied by this bootleg preacher we got, Rev. Charles David Weldon, III. They released us early this morning. But before we left, I kind of let a whopping secret slip out in a room full of church folk. I knew that once that revelation got out, it was gonna get crazy; so I grabbed my hat and got the devil up outta there. I caught a cab and went home to my apartment, hoping to just relax and get some rest from the ridiculous night I´d had. It took me a minute to unlock my door, but when I finally got inside, I ran into something and someone unexpectedly. As chaos broke out right here in my home, with one unwanted visitor after another, more secrets were revealed, emotions were on high, and all hell broke loose. And it all started when I hollered, ´´Hey...Who´s in My House?´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: James E. Chandler, Sr..

Andy Larson, wanting to get away from the bootleg crime and corruption of prohibition in North Dakota, moves to Wolf Point, Montana, to take on an easy job as a deputy sheriff. Immediately after his arrival, the sheriff and police chief are gunned down and Andy, as the new sheriff, finds this area is a hot bed of big-city mobsters, crooked cops, and lethal double crosses. Andy is not above having a drink or two himself as he devises a sting operation to pit gangs against each other, encounters a World War I flying ace bringing in bootleg booze under the wings of his plane, and battles relentlessly to try to stem the flow of liquor coming through from Canada.... This is not the easy job Andy Larson was expecting. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Reed McColm. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/bimo/000806/bk_bimo_000806_sample.mp3.
