9780810835689: More Than Words Can Say

The story of the Ink Spots is a rags-to-riches story beloved in American mythology. The success of the Ink Spots inspired many others to attempt (some merely mimicking) their popular and musical success. They were, without question, the most influential black vocal group of the 1940s, and one of the earliest to sing "sweet ballads," which they elevated to an art form (although an increasingly formulaic one). Goldberg gets behind the streamers and glitter of the Ink Spots and the publicity machines of record labels, and provides the story of the group's creation, its music, and its monumental impact on the course of American music.

More Than Words Can Say uncovers the mythos and origins of the Ink Spots, from the dramatic stories of finding the band name, to the dozens of individuals who still claim to be original members of the group. Goldberg interviews some of the singers, musicians, and arrangers associated with the original Ink Spots who provide invaluable first-hand accounts of the group.

The book discusses the musical environment of the Ink Spots, including the ASCAP/BMI War, gas rationing, War of the Record Speeds, vinyl shortages, and all the lawsuits. Additionally, Goldberg has searched tirelessly through Billboard magazine and theater reviews to get a sense of the Ink Spots' contemporary reception. Also included is a bibliography of sources and a complete alphabetical listing of Ink Spots recordings released on Decca or Victor labels.

A fascinating story filled with excellently researched information and exciting anecdotes, Goldberg's text brings out the "authentic" story of the Ink Spots, from their origins in the early 1930s through the tumultuous recording world of 1940s and 1950s America.

About the Author:

Marv Goldberg is a music historian who writes a monthly column in DISCoveries magazine, and has written the liner notes for two dozen record albums. A frequent guest on area oldies radio shows, he also hosts a weekly show of his own.

Review:

With record reviews, critiques of in-person performances, contemporary ads and photos, this is an enjoyable package for those ardent fans of old. Goldberg is a shrewd and artful detective and an astute music analyst. (Rapport)

...a very entertaining, remarkably balanced, and extremely well-researched history of one of pop music's most beloved groups. (Past Times)

Explores the history of the influential black vocal group of the 1940s, discussing the musical environment in which the group formed and worked, the War of the Record Speeds, vinyl shortages, the lawsuits that the group was involved in, and the group's changing personnel. The work is based on research of record and theater reviews, and interviews with eight of the group's members. (Reference and Research Book News)

Goldberg wraps up his part of the story around 1953, having taken time along the way for lovely little side trips into matters like the shellac shortage of World War II and the various headaches caused to the music business by union boss James Petrillo. (Pantagraph)

So it is happy news that the Ink Spots now have a brand-new book all their own, one that cuts through the jungle of mythology that has grown up around them over the years. (Billings Gazette)

The chapters give a remarkably thorough perspective of the conditions surrounding the music business without losing sight of the development and career of the Ink Spots. As far as musical biographies go, the 'real thing' has come along. This book belongs on the shelf of every R&B enthusiast. (Disc Reviews)

With record reviews, critiques of in-perons performances, contemporary ads and photos, this is an enjoyable package...Goldberg is a shrewd and artful detective and an astute music analyst.

So it is happy news that ― this being Black History Month ― the Ink Spots now have a brand-new book all their own, one that cuts through the jungle of mythology that has grown up around them over the years. (Daily News)

...a fascinating look at one of the most influential singing groups of all time...Get this book! (Echoes Of The Past)

He treats his subject as a journalist should. He tells the story and lets it speak for itself. (Blues & Rhythm)
