Book Description Schirmer Books, 1995. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This is the story of Alan Freed's life. He brought the sounds of rhythm and blues to an increasingly integrated audience starved for rock and roll, and in Cleveland he developed his distinctive style: shouting into the mike as the records played and ringing a cowbell.
