Description
Now the world's foremost blues, rockabilly, soul, and rock 'n' roll re-issue label, Britain's independent Ace Records label has been responsible for unearthing lost classics and neglected pioneers for more than three decades, and provided some of the finest and most influential records of the postwar era. David Stubbs—a 12-year veteran of Melody Maker magazine and the author of Jimi Hendrix: Voodoo Child—here gives us a detailed and fascinating history of Ace. The book is filled with illustrations of vintage disc labels, album covers, concert posters, sale flyers, and behind-the scenes photos, and profiles musicians like B.B. King, John Fahey, Lee Hazlewood, and Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers.

"The rich story of [Ted] Carroll, [Roger] Armstrong and their labels is well told in the new book by David Stubbs. Copiously illustrated, it shares a fondness for good visual material with the company's own art directors."—Guardian (London)

"Stubbs's subtle and engaging chronicle of the Ace history is scholarly yet balanced and by the end of this evocative tale you cannot help but raise a glass and utter three cheers for the company and all involved."—Shindig
