Description - Spike Jones by Jordan R Young

20th Anniversary Edition! "Thanks to this book, we can learn at last just how Spike Jones made his magic, and what sort of magic man he was... Thank you, Jordan Young." -- Dr. Demento "A fantastic book. An encyclopedic look at Spike's marvelous career... a book that's been needed for a long, long time. Any Spike Jones fan will love it." -- Gary Owens "I found the book especially interesting because he died when I was so young. It was enlightening to me." -- Gina Jones, Spike's youngest daughter Spike Jones Off the Record is a revealing portrait of the pistol-packing bandleader whose wreck-reations of popular music brightened the darkest hours of World War II. Explore the public and private worlds of a complex individual: a serious man in a funny suit; a no-nonsense boss with a razor-sharp tongue; and a public relations wizard who worked his best magic behind the scenes. Interviews with over 100 of Jones' friends and associates provide a wealth of anecdotes and revelations. Plus rare photos, a comprehensive discography, a who's who of City Slickers, a resource list and a foreword by radio personality Dr. Demento.
