Memphis Monday - Robert Gordon at Booksellers of Laurelwood

Robert Gordon, who wrote the incredible book Respect Yourself: Stax Records and the Soul Explosion, spoke during the Mid-South Book Festival at Booksellers of Laurelwood, and a few friends went to hear him. He was there with Sidney Kirk, who played piano on most of Isaac Hayes's records.

Since I already read Respect Yourself (I rated it a 4: Holy Crap That's Good), I bought his book It Came from Memphis. Can't wait to read it!
