It was All Right: Mitch Ryder's Life in Music
Born in 1945 in Hamtramck, Michigan, Mitch Ryder has been in the music business for 47 years, made more than two dozen albums' worth of recordings, and given upward of 8,000 performances. In It Was All Right, author James A. Mitchell has collected an impressive array of anecdotes from Ryder's extraordinary life in music, including Ryder's stories of his first gigs in Greenwich Village clubs, singing with a black trio in the early days of the civil rights movement, jamming with Jimi Hendrix, and attending private parties thrown by the Beatles. Also chronicled are Ryder's struggles to regain his popularity among American audiences after the 1970s, his return home to the Detroit music scene in the 1980s, and his recent career.
