Great Insight To The Wild Memphis Sound May 6 2012
By CB in NJ - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I couldn't put this book down! Great stories about the beginning of Stax Records, Muscle Shoals & The Mar-Keys. Don Nix has a wonderful memory for all those sessions with Wilson Pickett, Booker T & the MGs, Joe Cocker, Albert King, Delaney & Bonnie and more. Lots of time with Leon Russell and the creation of The Concert for Bangladesh. A quick read and lots of fun (found it for $3.00). Good recipes too.

I don't know if there is a connection or not, but after reading this book I cooked up a batch of Little Milton's catfish head soup and went to a bingo parlor, where I promptly won $42.50 and a box of cigars.

Great book of road stories of Memphis music scene of the 60's and 70's Dec 10 2013
By Dave T. Perek - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have read several biographies of 60's/70's era rock stars and mistresses and have been disappointed by most. They either made me dislike them (Clapton), annoy me with their self-importance (Miss O'Dell) or bore me (Keith Richards). This book lives up to its title of road stories. While Nix does provide the stories in a chronological order, they are stories not his story necessarily. While reading this book, it felt like he was sitting next to me at a bar telling me these crazy tales. Nix doesn't hold back showing his emotion such as his love for Furry Lewis or his disdain for Bob Dylan. Plus, his best stories are those that haven't become well known legends yet. At the end of the book I still liked Don Nix and wished he had another book of stories to read.

entertaining Oct. 18 2005
By J. Johnson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have a warm spot in my heart for Don Nix. He always seemed to be one of those just off the radar guys who made things happen. Also his brother Larry was kind enough to give a friend and me feedback on a project we did 20 years ago. That afternoon he told Don Nix stories that left me in the floor-none of which made it to this book.

So when I saw this book last week i had to have it. It is an entertaining story of the early days of the Stax record scene, written lovingly. However Don, if you read this, I'm still waiting for the book about the Stax Christmas parties. I hear it would be a bonafide best seller
Don Nix is one of music's unsung heroes Oct. 20 2013
By Michael B. Smith - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a fun book. Musician/writer/producer/etc Don Nix shares stories from his long and varied music career with a cast that includes everyone from Duck Dunn and Steve Cropper to Delaney & Bonnie, Leon Russell. That's the tip of the iceberg. And then there are tons of recipes- you heard right, recipes straight from the kitchens of various musician friends. Some tasty stuff.
