Fever: The Life and Music of Miss Peggy Lee
Richmond, Peter
Aurum Press UK 2006 
24 Cm Hardcover ex-Merton (UK) lib, usual stamps, borrowers' ticket page removed (1st page). 44p crisp pp & 900g packed to post. An enthralling account of a charismatic artist moving through the greatest, most glamorous era of American music. GQ contributing editor Richmond gives the great singer-composer her due. Perhaps because Peggy Lee (1920-2002) sang with deceptive ease, her artistry has received less critical attention than that of such peers as Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. Her biographer here rights that wrong. Richmond finds Lee's life and talent taking root in pain; she grew up in North Dakota during the Depression under stress from an alcoholic father and a physically and verbally abusive stepmother. To escape, Lee turned to singing. In strong scenes that evoke America's golden age of popular song, the author traces her career.  Good

Amy Winehouse The Biography
Newkey-Burden, Chas
John Blake UK 2008 
24cm Hardcover 211 crisp pp plus a discography, book just a whisker under 500g for post. This remarkable biography traces the life of the tattooed wonder from her childhood pranks in north London through her days at the Sylvia Young Theatre School and her time spent working with pop impresario Simon Fuller. An indisputable musical icon and controversial celebrity figure, Amy Winehouse’s unique blend of jazz, pop, and soul singing and songwriting have brought her a host of awards—including two prestigious Ivor Novellos and five Grammys - as well as an army of committed fans who adore her rich voice and painfully honest lyrics. review >>> This biography is fluently written. It was published in 2008, which sometimes leads to phrases that are painful to read in 2012. The author is clearly smitten with Amy Winehouse and barely manages to hide that. For an author of a biography, he's not neutral enough for me, but his bias is of the adorable kind.  Excellent

Underneath a Harlem Moon: The Harlem to Paris Years of Adelaide Hall
Williams, Iain Cameron
Continuum UK 2002 
24 Cm Hardcover Williams takes the reader on a fascinating roller-coaster ride from Adelaide's birth in Brooklyn through her humble childhood in Harlem, from her triumphs on Broadway to the glamour of Paris's Moulin Rouge. Adelaide Hall is the missing link in Harlem's Renaissance, historically the richest period of American black culture. As its most important and influential female star, she dynamically pushed down the barriers that had previously prevented black entertainers from reaching mass recognition. Readers get a glimpse inside the most sophisticated and celebrated nightclubs in the world and follow Adelaide across two continents on a groundbreaking eighteen-month RKO tour. By the end of 1932, Adelaide had performed for millions and in the process had become one of America's wealthiest black women. Her exile to Paris in 1935 brought with it new challenges and rewards. By 1938, not content with being dubbed the Queen of Montmartre, she set her sights on conquering Britain. Underneath a Harlem Moon concludes with Adelaide's mysterious disappearance in November 1938, which has, until now, never been publicly explained. review>>>> Overall, a hugely enjoyable read made easy by Williams's approachable style of writing and keen interest towards the characters he portrays within the text. A must for all jazz and popular music buffs.  Excellent
