Hopefully, all of it's flaws can be corrected in a second edition.
I am sorry I hadn't read it when i saw Anthony recently at the Mohegan Sun, but I did tell Gene Chandler this weekend to let someone he trusts proofread his book , if he does one. This edition reflects badly on one of the singers I have admired and learned from for thirty years. Like someone said , the overall content of the book is it's only saving grace and I only gave it three stars because Anthony's story needed to be told.
the price of this book won't matter, even with it imperfections.
They were one of my favorite groups by far, and I have
written about them in doo-wop forums. I rarely missed
an appearance by them in New York over the years, even
saw their performance at the Copacabana. They were
always top-of-the-line, spectacular (singing, dancing, style,
even splits). Superior entertainers. Of course, Anthony' voice
is one of a kind.
To me, it's strange that the author does a kind of family bio
at first and you really don't feel that you're reading about a singer or
his group till after Chapter 5. That's weird, and a major mistake.
These chapters are disjointed, and a disappointment. This
book should open with Anthony and the Imperials singing--on stage,
getting awards, on the corners and in the recording studios.
What of the battles of the groups? The "inside" stuff? The early
years with the Duponts, Chesters? More about the "Outside
Looking In" Terry R. songs, planning. And sadly, a lot of info is presented
out of order
Strangely, by mid-book I am sure that a totally different writer
has taken over. All of a sudden, the book is more professionally laid out.
Still, there's a lot to be desired overall.
successful. Anyone with insight can get a good grasp of what can happen in life inside and outside of the world of a well known international personality, Singing is what we know about "Little Anthony" reading his book will disclose much more and then some.
They didn't do justice to a wonderful group, and a very talented singer.
