Book Description

April 1 2011
Selected stories inspired from the recorded gems of the Delta blues, Chicago blues, Memphis blues and Texas blues. Called "the Devil's music," the stories of the blues goes beyond jump turns, slow drag ditties, reel, jigs, minstrel songs, ragtime, or the buzzard lope. These lyrics connected to these stories celebrate heartache, separation, distrust, betrayal, lust, but they promise a healing love of revival and renewal. It's a celebration of the present, of the now, and it's totally mad at the past and suspicious of the future. But who are kidding? Let us tell the truth. Really, the themes of this raucous collection often wallow in carnal pain, in the weakness of the flesh, and the temptation of sin. Taboo love, forbidden love. Sometimes it's just plain nasty. All of the good stuff.
In Too Much Boogie, the spirit of the blues afflicts everybody. Within the emotional pull of the lyrics and its stirring music, there is a common language of the heart and the soul. Although the blues were born and bred in the land of Jim Crow by black people, it has nothing to do with class, color, or category. Even the rich get the blues and do dumb things. The book shows there is a pulse beating within each of us and that pulse is the blues.

3.0 out of 5 stars Author Cole Riley pushes the envelope of eroticism to another level! Aug. 19 2012
By Jerome Whitehead - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
There is a fine line between traditional erotica and literary pornography. As a matter of fact, this is one of the questions that is asked of the subject of this review. Personally, I've always subscribed to the ideology that erotica paints a vivid picture of sensuality. Where erotica may be deemed as soft; maybe even more appealing to a female readership, pornography may be viewed by some as graphic and in some circles, coarse if not abrasive.

Cole Riley's "Too Much Boogie - Erotic Remixes of the Dirty Blues" makes for an interesting read that pushes the envelope of erotica. It is a collection of short stories that range from typical erotica to out and out sexual activity without a plot. The thread of commonality between the stories is the link of the era in which the stories were written.
As I read some of the stories, I could almost hear the scratchy 78 RPM records playing in the background while the vocals of the late, great Bessie Smith sang with a drink in hand while standing in a smoke filled bar.

All of the stories are well-written even if some of them lack direction. But then again, when you are dealing with eroticism, direction may not necessarily be the point.
