If you've ever wanted to know the "correct" words to "Roll Me Over", or wondered where the melody of "The Hootchie Kootchie Song" came from, this book can answer your questions. Extensively revised, this new edition of "The Erotic Muse" presents the full texts of some 125 songs, with melodies for most of them and detailed annotations for all. Capturing the kick and stir of history as it unfolded, "American Datelines" reveals the courage, hope, and grit of the American experience as chronicled in the headlines of the nation's public press from the earliest issue of "The Boston News-Letter" to the major newspapers of today. The original articles in this compelling collection are arranged chronologically and appear as they were first published, providing a lively and unique view of the events that have most influenced politics and culture. Readers can experience the thrill and excitement of breaking news from the real story of Jesse James and the capture of Al Capone to a vibrant portrayal of baseball's first professional African American player and a probing look at the shocking New York Armory show where modern art was born. This first paperback edition features a new preface by the editors and newsworthy additions, including the fall of the Berlin Wall, the O.J. Simpson trial, the Clinton impeachment trial, the home run race between Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa, and Bush v. Gore.
