Quotes & Awards

  • “Evokes the fire of Redding…Ribowsky tells the story with nonstop energy, while always probing for the larger social and musical pictures…[His] insightfulness and storytelling gift trump all. Helped by revealing quotations from musicians, he recalls a time of interactive music-making that seems worlds removed from today’s computer-assembled, auto-tuned pop.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Subtly passionate…What Mark Ribowsky has done here is to describe someone who was, not divine, but as godlike as a human can be.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “Excellent from start to finish, demanding a soundtrack of Stax hits as background listening.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Ribowsky has labored hard to get at [Redding’s] emotional center…[He] goes into the seamy side of the record business but also the sheer beauty and magic of the sixties soul music that Redding epitomized.”
