Musically Themed Books

Our “Libraries Rock” Summer Reading program is about over, but there is still time to check out our musically themed book display.

Got No Friend Anyhow
by Peggy Ehrhart

From the book description
Maxximum Blues has a solid foothold in the Manhattan blues scene, but Maxx Maxwell (real name: Elizabeth) knows a CD will make the band irresistible to festival organizers. Prowling Rooster Records is her label of choice, but when the CD is nearly finished, producer Rick Schneider disappears.

When Maxx searches for the CD’s master in Rick’s studio, she finds his cherished memento, a framed album cover, knocked from the wall–and even more alarming, a pool of dried blood. The next day, she identifies Rick’s body at the county morgue.

The cops believe Rick was pirating CDs and was murdered in a mob territory battle. Maxx is determined to clear his name by finding his real killer.
In classic whodunit style, Got No Friend Anyhow takes the reader on a ride that keeps pages turning all the way to a dramatic and unexpected climax.

Sweet Dreams Are Made of This: A Life In Music
by Dave Stewart and Mick Jagger

From the book description
A no-holds-barred look into the remarkable life and career of the prolific musician, songwriter, and producer behind Eurythmics and dozens of pop hits.

Dave Stewart’s life has been a wild ride—one filled with music, constant reinvention, and the never-ending drive to create. Growing up in industrial northern England, he left home for the gritty London streets of the seventies, where he began collaborating and performing with various musicians, including a young waitress named Annie Lennox.

For the first time, Stewart shares the incredible, high-octane stories of his life in music—the drug-fueled adventures, the A-list collaborations and relationships, and the creative process that brought us blockbusters from Eurythmics like “ Here Comes the Rain Again” and “Would I Lie to You” as well as Tom Petty’s “Don’t Come Around Here No More,” No Doubt’s “Underneath It All,” Golden Globe winner “Old Habits Die Hard” with Mick Jagger, and many more.
