Description: For over one hundred years, Memphis, Tennessee, was been the center of musical innovation for American popular music. Memphis Going Down is told in the words of the record producers, performers, and songwriters themselves as they reflect on their lives and music and its impact on popular culture. You'll hear legendary record producers such as Chips Moman, Willie Mitchell, Sam Phillips, and Jim Stewart talk about the ups and downs of the industry. And you'll hear the artists themselves: Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Al Green, Bobby Womack, B.B. King, Bobby 'Blue' Bland, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Rufus Thomas, members of the Box Tops, and the Fabulous Thunderbirds go one-on-one with the author in an effort to understand the mysteries of Memphis music. The book was originally published as Goin' Back to Memphis in the year 2000 (see list with Elvis Related books), and was released with the current title also in 2013 and 2023.
