Summary
If the only thing Sydney Nathan's King Records had done was to start the recording career of James Brown, that would have been enough to secure a prominent place for the Cincinnati-based label in the history of U.S. popular music. But King did far more than that during the 25 years that Nathan was at the helm, recording artists as varied as Freddie King, the Stanley Brothers, Ike Turner, and Cowboy Copas. Chronicling the label's history from its beginning in 1943 as an offshoot of a record store through its massive successes with James Brown in the 1960s, author Fox shows how King Records succeeded by recording a wide range of music, instead of by focusing on a particular musical genre (like most other indie labels of the time). Filling a big hole in the history of the U.S. recording industry, this well-written and authoritative book will appeal to numerous readers.
