You may remember the Helium Kids. Back in their late ´60s and early ´70s heyday they appeared on Top of the Tops on 27 separate occasions, released five Billboard-certified platinum albums, played sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden and were nearly, but not quite, as big as the Beatles and the Stones. Three decades later, in the big house on the outskirts of Norwich, Nick Du Pont is looking back on the rollercoaster years he spent as their publicist in a world of licensed excess and lurking tragedy. What follows is not only the story of a rock band at a formative time in musical history, when America was opening up to English music and huge amounts of money and self-gratification were there for the taking. For the tale is also Nick´s - the life and times of a war-baby born in a Norwich council house, the son of an absconding GI, whose career is a search for some of the advantages that his birth denied him. It is at once a worm´s eye of British pop music´s golden age and a bittersweet personal journey, with cameo appearances from everyone from Elvis and Her Majesty the Queen Mother to Andy Warhol. Rock and Roll is Life is a vastly entertaining, picaresque and touching novel inspired by the excess and trajectories of the great ´60s and ´70s supergroups, and of the tales brought back from the front line by a very special breed of Englishmen who made it big in the States as the alchemists and enablers, as well as the old making way for the new in the era of the baby boomers. At its heart is one man´s adventure, and the poignancy of the special relationships that dominate his life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Banks.

Of all the great cities in the world, few personify their country like New York City. As America´s largest city and best known immigration gateway into the country, the Big Apple represents the beauty, diversity and sheer strength of the United States, a global financial center that has enticed people chasing the ´´American Dream´´ for centuries. As such, it´s only fitting that Madison Square Garden, the stadium that bills itself as the world´s most famous arena, resides in the heart of Manhattan. Just blocks away from the Empire State Building and situated atop Penn Station, the Garden is always bustling, whether it´s for special events or as the home of the NBA´s New York Knicks and NHL´s New York Rangers, and all the while, performing in the Garden has been a career benchmark for artists as varied as Elvis Presley, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, and Michael Jackson. As Billie Joel put it, ´´Madison Square Garden is the center of the universe as far as I´m concerned. It has the best acoustics, the best audiences, the best reputation, and the best history of great artists who have played there. It is the iconic, holy temple of Rock and Roll for most touring acts and, being a New Yorker, it holds a special significance to me.´´ The Garden is now nearly 50 years old, making it one of the oldest sporting venues used in professional sports, but the current arena was not the first Madison Square Garden, and the area has a history as an entertainment center dating back to the 19th century. Ironically, its location on the less crowded fringes of Manhattan in the 19th century helped establish it as a place for hucksters like P.T. Barnum to hold events. In fact, a previous Garden was one of New York City´s tallest buildings in the early 20th century, and it was bankrolled by business titans like J.P. Morgan and Andrew Carnegie. 1. Language: English.

Stoning Roll is a new kind of music publication that focuses on albums through the literary lenses of the avant-garde, surrealism, and magic realism. This first edition includes pieces on albums by the following artists: The Beatles (Beatles For Sale), Joni Mitchell (Blue), The Jam (Sound Affects), and Soley Mourning (The Rocket Pool). These short stories and surreal essays are interesting in their own right, and also serve as a unique kind of introduction to important albums for listeners who are unfamiliar with them.
