Nowhere to Run: The Story of Soul Music

Front Cover
Times Books, 1984 - Music - 384 pages
Author Gerri Hirshey takes us on a bus tour with the Temptations, and on the backroads of rural Georgia with James Brown. Diana Ross reminisces about her lean years in Detroit; at home in California, ex-Supreme Mary Wilson fills out the story. 'The Wicked' Wilson Pickett tells his best stories long after the midnight hour in a New York City dressing room. And Michael Jackson, driving his Camaro and singing along to the radio, talks about opening shows for the great soul acts when he was a child.
