The archetypal, inveterate gypsy muso, Denny Laine - founder of the Moody Blues and wing commander of Paul McCartney’s post-Beatles pop incarnation band - is back with an all new, in-depth, soul searching interview with author and historian Geoffrey Giuliano. Laine rarely sits down for interviews, as his colorful past is often a touchy subject for the intensely private musician. Giuliano, however, got the scoop, artfully encouraging Denny to go much further and deeper than he has ever gone in any interview. Denny Laine and Geoffrey Giuliano wrote a book together on Paul McCartney in the 1990s. Giuliano was Laine’s personal manager around this time. A once in a lifetime audio adventure from Icon Audio Arts. Music by AudioNautix. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Geoffrey Giuliano.

Elliott J. Gorn´s The Manly Art tells the story of boxing´s origins and the sport´s place in American culture. When first published in 1986, the book helped shape the ways historians write about American sport and culture, expanding scholarly boundaries by exploring masculinity as an historical subject and by suggesting that social categories like gender, class, and ethnicity can be understood only in relation to each other. This updated edition of Gorn´s highly influential history of the early prize rings features a new afterword, the author´s meditation on the ways in which studies of sport, gender, and popular culture have changed in the quarter century since the book was first published. An updated bibliography ensures that The Manly Art will remain a vital resource for a new generation. ´´It didn´t occur to me until fairly late in the work that I was writing a book about the beginnings of a national celebrity culture. By 1860, a few boxers had become heroes to working-class men, and big fights drew considerable newspaper coverage, most of it quite negative since the whole enterprise was illegal. But a generation later, toward the end of the century, the great John L. Sullivan of Boston had become the nation´s first true sports celebrity, an American icon. The likes of poet Vachel Lindsay and novelist Theodore Dreiser lionized him - Dreiser called him ´a sort of prize fighting J. P. Morgan´ - and Ernest Thompson Seton, founder of the Boy Scouts, noted approvingly that he never met a lad who would not rather be Sullivan than Leo Tolstoy.´´ (From the Afterword to the Updated Edition) 1.

Do what I say, and you´ll be what I am, is what my outdoor writer mentor told me many years ago when I just was getting started in my outdoor-writing career. Hearing those words and following that advice produced an outdoor writing career far bigger and better than I ever could have dreamed. ´´If you want black and white photography like I produce, do what I say, and the how and the why don´t matter,´´ Leonard LaRue, one of the greatest outdoor photographers who ever lived, told me. He was absolutely right because during his time he sold more outdoors photography than any other man alive and helped me sell more photography due to his advice. This same philosophy is true of successful bass fishing and life. If you want to become the best you can be, find someone who´s already become the best at what you want to do and follow his or her instructions. This is what I´ve done in my new book, Bass Pros´ Season by Season Tactics. In this book, I´ve chosen some of the best bass fishermen to give you advice on how to find and catch bass during each period of a bass fish´s life, including professionals like Kevin VanDam, Denny Brauer, David Fritts, Rick Clunn, Larry Nixon, George Cochran, Mark Davis, Woo Daves, Gary Klein, Davy Hite, Michael Iaconelli, Skeet Reese, Mark Rose, and Shaw Grigsby. My hope is that this book will help you find and catch more bass at every time of the year and each day you´re on the water. The men included in this book are some of the best mentors I know of for successful bass fishing anywhere in the nation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Davenport.

When Sports Illustrated was launched in 1954, baseball was, indisputable, the national pastime, its stars America´s epic heroes, its rivalries the era´s mythology. As baseballs fortunes rose and fell over the next 50 years - and then rose again to new heights, drawing more than 65 million fans to ballparks in 2004 - the game never failed to produce great drama and inspired storytelling. This collection is a virtual Hall of Fame from the pages of SI, bringing together the stories of baseball´s greatest heroes (Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Sandy Koufax) and villains (Ty Cobb, Pete Rose, Denny McLain) and characters (Casey Stengel, Max Patkin, Yogi Berra); its legendary quests (the home run chases of Roger Maris, Hank Aaron, Mark McGwire, and Barry Bonds; the thrilling pennant races, from the Dodgers - Giants in 1951 to the Yankees - Red Sox in 1978); its world-class writers (Frank Deford, Mark Kram, George Plimpton, Peter Gammons, and Tom Verducci) and its own players writing from the inside about their game (Ted Williams, Jim Brosnan, and Jim Bouton). In the wake of SI´s acclaimed Fifty Years of Great Writing comes this baseball anthology worthy of Cooperstown. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dennis Holland.

The extraordinary story of the 1968 baseball season - when the game was played to perfection even as the country was being pulled apart at the seams. From the beginning, ’68 was a season rocked by national tragedy and sweeping change. Opening Day was postponed and later played in the shadow of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s funeral. That summer, as the pennant races were heating up, the assassination of Robert Kennedy was later followed by rioting at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. But even as tensions boiled over and violence spilled into the streets, something remarkable was happening in major league ballparks across the country. Pitchers were dominating like never before, and with records falling and shut-outs mounting, many began hailing ’68 as ´´The Year of the Pitcher´´. In Summer of ’68, Tim Wendel takes us on a wild ride through a season that saw such legends as Bob Gibson, Denny McLain, Don Drysdale, and Luis Tiant set new standards for excellence on the mound, each chasing perfection against the backdrop of one of the most divisive and turbulent years in American history. For some players, baseball would become an insular retreat from the turmoil encircling them that season, but for a select few, including Gibson and the defending champion St. Louis Cardinals, the conflicts of ’68 would spur their performances to incredible heights and set the stage for their own run at history. Meanwhile in Detroit - which had burned just the summer before during one of the worst riots in American history - ’68 instead found the city rallying together behind a colorful Tigers team led by McLain, Mickey Lolich, Willie Horton, and Al Kaline. The Tigers would finish atop the American League, setting themselves on a highly anticipated collision course with Gibson’s Cardinals. And with both teams’ seasons culminating in a thrilling World Series for the ages - one team playing to establish a dynasty, the other fi 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Ashby.

To borrow the slogan offered over the Bryant-Denny Stadium public address system before the start of every Alabama home game, ´´This is Alabama football.´´ Ask a fan to talk about his favorite game and he’ll probably answer, ´´Which season?´´ Ask another to describe his favorite Crimson Tide play, and he may also respond the same way. And if asking an Alabama fan to recall his favorite player, don’t be surprised if you are asked to be more specific: ´´Which year? Which game? Which position?´´ Such is the tradition and legacy of the program. The tradition connects former coaches and players to the current team, and fans from the program’s early days to those of today. Written by Tommy Hicks, who has worked for five newspapers in the state of Alabama over a 30-year span, Game of My Life: Alabama offers a view from field level and in the huddle as 30 Alabama players share the experiences and emotions of the favorite games of their careers. From Harry Gilmer and his excellent play in the 1946 Rose Bowl to Brodie Croyle leading Alabama to an impressive win over Florida in the 2005 season, Alabama has had more than its share of great moments, great games, and great players. Game of My Life: Alabama focuses on 30 of those moments, 30 of those games, 30 of those players. You’ll discover the simple advice and prediction head coach Paul ´´Bear´´ Bryant gave his team before the 1967 Auburn game won by quarterback Ken Stabler’s famous ´´run in the mud´´. You’ll also be given an insider’s view of a favorite game for Ken Stabler, Mike Shula, Brodie Croyle, Lee Roy Jordan, Cornelius Bennett, Billy Neighbors, Woodrow Lowe, Joey Jones, Bobby Humphrey, and many others.
