The R&B Book: A Disc History of Rhythm & Blues 1940-1959
by "Big" Al Pavlow

Al's 111 page paperback book (published in 1983), is the definative history of early R&B. Unlike other publications that jump into Rock 'n' Roll, Al's book highlights the full history of the music of that era, including all the top 20 charts.

"But the popularity of R&B is in its diversity of styles. This is the first book that deals fairly with all of the genres" is a direct quote from "The Eagle" magazine published on April 8, 1982, that interviewed Al just prior to the book launch.

Big Al has been into R&B since school and prompted by a peer's record collection vowed one day to equal, or better it - that he did! After an aprenticeship under local Rhode Island DJ Carl Henry, he joined the Army, stationed overseas he added international releases to his collection. Afdter the military, together with a friend, Al opened the legendary " Big Al's Record Shop" which eventually relocated to downtown Providence, RI. At one time they even became known as the 'Beatles Headquarters.' Later, Al ultimately opened his own store.

He also managed several local bands, including the Ascots, becoming their producer and promoter. It took him 10 years after that to prepare this amazing publication, which is virtually a bible of who sang, played, performed on, and engineered the records.

"The R&B Book" was out of print but Al informed us personally that its now back in reprint!
We found two ISBN numbers that you may want to try when locating the book:
ISBN-10: 0915529009 and ISBN-13: 978-0915529001

Savage Lost
by Jeff Lemlich

Savage Lost is a 416-page book, dealing with Florida's incredible music scenes in the 1960's, along with highlights of what happened before and after that amazing decade.

The main focus is the teen garage bands that seemed to be ubiquitous on every block in every city throughout the state, but the coverage goes way beyond that, including Florida soul music in the 60's, the exciting radio wars that resulted in better music being played (along with more support for local artists) and, let's not forget, narratives and discographies galore!

There's lots of trivia, and answers to questions that record collectors have been asking for decades. This book tells how Florida shook, rattled, and rolled to the sounds of soul and rock 'n roll music, in a time that's been neither duplicated nor surpassed through the years.

Note from the Author:
Since so much information has surfaced in the 16-plus years since the book was published, I started the Limestone Lounge music forum, to share more information about Florida's music scenes. Our members include artists, producers, radio disc jockeys, and music fans, all interacting and sharing the rest of the story.

Steel City Soul Club
A Soul Music Club Venue, Fan and Local Scene Information Site

Restless! started in March 2004 by solo selector David "DJ" Riel as a spinoff from earlier mod and reggae nights that he had put together in Pittsburgh. Riel wanted to bring to the Pittsburgh club scene what he had been doing at the Vintage Scooter Rally scene all over America years before, but never found a good breakout until the Moose opened its doors in 2003. Riel took a couple of old turntables, a box of records, and a determination to bring the original sounds of 60's Northern Soul, Southern Funk, Latin Boogaloo, and early Reggae and Ska to the ears of Pittsburgh.

Free Admission (21+ please) from 9pm till 2am at The Smiling Moose (Upstairs), 1306 E Carson St., Southside, Pittsburgh, PH: (412) 431-4668. You can also check out their sweb site at
