(Relic) 24 tracks - The Marcels were one of the best doo-wop groups of the early sixties. Born and bred in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, this racially-mixed group established their own style of exaggerated bass vocals accenting sometimes frantic, double-time harmonies and riffs. They took a staid Rodgers and Hart 1934 standard, ´´Blue Moon,´´ and propelled it to #1 in an exciting rush up the 1961 charts. The Marcels were one of the first r&b groups to be honored with an LP release almost immediately on the heels of their initial chart topper. One listen to the April, 1961 Colpix ´´Blue Moon´´ LP proves that the Marcels were a class act. They had learned their r&b lessons from their predecessors very well, but they were far more than just mere imitators. Colpix stayed with them for three years and over a dozen singles, despite their dwindling fortunes after ´´Blue Moon,´´ ´´Summertime,´´ and ´´Heartaches.´´ This compact disc contains 24 prime cuts by the Marcels, many of which were early rehearsals and demos for future session possibilities. Their first manager, the late Jules Kruspir, thoroughly rehearsed the group and encouraged them to sing or practice what are now rock & roll standards. Several tantalizing tapes were found in Kruspir´s effects after he died. They eventually were purchased by Ed Engel of Crystal Ball Records in New York City, who issued the bulk of these songs on two Marcels´ Crystal Ball albums in the eighties.

A Testimony of an Overcomer There are few things more devastating to a child´s fragile self-esteem than being humiliated before classmates and called a ´´dummy´´ by friends, teachers, and even family members. But millions of bright, sensitive, learning disabled children live this nightmare everyday - clinging to the hope that one day, they might achieve their life goals. Everyone has a turning point in their life. For me, it came through a newly discovered faith in God and one special teacher who helped me to realize that I had strength to overcome incredible odds including: A dysfunctional family environment A paralyzing learning disability Severe stuttering Once encouraged and made to feel important, my natural abilities blossomed, and I progressed from being unable to read aloud, to becoming an honor student and winning speech tournaments. ´´Our students were impressed with your sincerity and got a sense that you care about them as people. As a speaker, you are one of the best of the 450 we have had. You made them aware of the plight experienced by the underdog in our classroom. Hopefully, they will extend a helping hand rather than a taunt to the kid who doesn´t fit into the mainstream.... We all learned a most powerful lesson in the resiliency of the human spirit.´´ - Larry Crawford, High School Principal Lordstown, Ohio. Today, Lonnie J. Clinkscale, MBA, is an accomplished speaker, author, and licensed minister. His life story has been written about in the American Academy of Pediatric Medicine. He has been a guest on the 700 Club, Trinity Broadcasting Network, National Empowerment TV, KET Public Broadcasting, World, a national publication for learning disabilities, and CBS sharing his testimony message of hope. He and his wife, Dawn, live in Louisville, Kentucky. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marcel Williams. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/054906/bk_acx0_054906_sample.mp3.

It´s been nearly a century since Marcel Duchamp exhibited a urinal and called it art. Since then painting has been declared dead several times over, and contemporary art has now expanded to include just about any object, action, or event: dance routines, slideshows, functional hair salons, seemingly random accretions of waste. In the meantime being an artist has gone from a join-the-circus fantasy to a plausible vocation for scores of young people in America. But why - and how and by whom - does all this art get made? How is it evaluated? And for what, if anything, will today´s artists be remembered? In The Contemporaries, Roger White, himself a young painter, serves as our spirited, skeptical guide through this diffuse, creative world. White takes us into the halls of the RISD graduate program, where students learn critical lessons that go far beyond how to apply paint to canvases. In New York we meet the neophytes who assist established artists - and who walk the fine line between ´´assistance´´ and ´´making the art´´. In Milwaukee White trails a group of friends trying to create a viable scene where rent is cheap but where the spotlight rarely shines. And he gives us an intimate perspective on three wildly different careers: that of Dana Schutz, an emerging star who is revitalizing painting; that of Mary Walling Blackburn, whose challenging art defies market forces; and that of Stephen Kaltenbach, a ´70s wunderkind who is back on the critical radar, perhaps in spite of his own willful obscurity. From young artists trying to elbow their way in to those working hard at dropping out, White´s essential audiobook offers a once-in-a-generation glimpse of the inner workings of the American art world at a moment of unparalleled ambition, uncertainty, and creative exuberance. 1.
