PARIS MOVES - The Saturday Morning Song Chronicles (French Edition) Review 08.26.2020

“The Saturday Morning Song Chronicles” - Author: Paul B Allen III 
French version: “Les Chroniques des Chansons du Samedi Matin” - Translation: Thierry Clemensat 

Here is a fascinating book in more than one way. For example: how did Mae West influence a Motown hit? Which theme song has brought millions and millions to its author? Why, after learning Eartha Kitt's story , will you never hear her music the same way again? 

“By diving into the French version of“ The Saturday Morning Song Chronicles ”, you will find plenty of surprises and surprising information, even unpublished for you, in these pages. Because “The Saturday Morning Song Chronicles: Memories, Motown and Music” is more than a book. In fact, Paul Allen III has written a true musical encyclopedia with artist biographies, an introduction to the workings of the music industry and a video catalog, all in one… 
A book intended for fans of Jazz as well as R&B, Soul, Motown, Pop, and more. This book is a treasure trove of stories about great artists such as Nancy Wilson, Otis Redding, James Brown, Luther Vandross, Hazel Scott, Peaches and Herb, Paul Anka, Berry Gordy, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and many more. Paul Allen III depicts well-known or too little-known artists, revealing their flaws, their weaknesses, their kindness, their personalities and their stories ... 
In each chapter you will discover real life stories, anecdotes, hit lists presenting the artist and his music. But Allen is not finished. After offering musical information and personal background, he cleverly provides the links to the videos so that you can fully experience the performances of these artists “live”, with what you will have learned about them… ” 
Sherry Tuffin - reviewer book for the Lawrence Technological University Library 

Like me, you will not read “The Saturday Morning Song Chronicles - Les Chroniques des Chansons du Samedi Matin”, but you will devour this book in one go (in digital version only, for the moment) which introduces you to famous artists, too little known, even forgotten and to which Paul B Allen III pays homage by often slipping personal anecdotes, the man having had the happiness and the chance to rub shoulders with many artists whose names make jazz and R&B lovers dream, Soul or Gospel. Each chapter will teach you something, and then you will do as recommended by Paul, you will watch the videos of these artists by clicking on the links proposed and selected by this wonderful singer of PLATTERS. 
“The Saturday Morning Song Chronicles - Les Chroniques des Chansons du Samedi Matin”, a book that the editors of  Paris-Move  salute with its highest rating, “essential”.  A MUST / INDISPENSABLE

Benjamin Franklin: Time Tripper

Benjamin Franklin eating at McDonald’s, “expanding his mind” with help from Dr. Timothy Leary, and jamming with Stevie Wonder? Why would he ever want to go back to the 1700s when the 1960s in the Haight/Ashbury district of San Francisco is so groovy?

From Karaoke to the Platters

The inspirational tale of how Paul B Allen III went from singing in karaoke establishments, to become the lead singer of one of the greatest vocal groups of all time. The Platters sang "Only You," "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," and "The Great Pretender." Paul shares that journey of performing at venues like the world-famous Kennedy Center, backed by the National Symphony Orchestra, and his singing for the rich and famous all around the world, including performing for the Royal Family in London, Prince Albert in Monaco, and being invited to the White House to perform for the President of the United States of America. 

The Tall Tales of Erasmus Obadiah Short

He wrestled with Abraham Lincoln, invented the game of baseball, and taught Stevie Wonder how to sing. A reporter’s hunt to find and interview the oldest man in the world comes to an abrupt halt at a home for seniors, when he meets Erasmus Obadiah Short, and hears the intricate, funny, and mesmerizing yarns that Obadiah weaves. The reporter is soon convinced that he has just found a better story than the one he had been looking for. But Obadiah’s story is bigger than even the reporter could imagine.
