Book Summary:

Live at the ContinentalThe inside story of the world famous Continental Baths I built the Continental Baths in 1968 and discovered Bette Midler in 1969. The Baths were not only an expression of sexual liberation, but also heralded in a rebirth of Cabaret in the city of New York. Artists of the ilk of Barry Manilow, Manhattan Transfer, Peter Allen, Margaret Whiting, Melba Moore, Liz Torres, Patti LaBelle and countless others in addition to Bette got their first big break at the Continental Baths. The Baths and I are the subject of several chapters in the latest biography of Bette called Bette (1995 Birch Lane press, Carol Publishing Group). The Baths and I have also been extensively written about in Bettes own book, A View From A Broad, Barry Manilows autobiography My Sweet Life; James Gavins Intimate Nights; The Golden Age of Cabaret, Stephen Macleans The Boy From Oz, and countless other books depicting the age of sexual revolution etc. In addition the Baths were the subject of a major motion picture The Ritz, which was released in the late seventies. The Continental was a phenomenon that came out of a pre-AIDS world that we will probably never experience again. But more than just being a bathhouse and showplace, the Baths were a place where people came out of their closets and found out who they were. It was the first gay establishment to treat gay people as equals and not exploit them. It was instrumental in having the laws against homosexuality rescinded and gave birth, along with Stonewall, to a whole generation where gay was in. Beyond that it ushered in an era of sexual liberation and alternative lifestyles that, to this day, has never been equaled. I feel that it is now time for me to tell the whole story of the Baths for the first time. The inside story of how and why it came about, and the whole subculture is engendered. But far from being just another chronicle of a bygone era, and as I was a rather prominent fellow in the gay world, having been crowned King Queen in a 16-page Rolling Stone article, I also relate my own life story, leading up to what motivated me to create such a place and the ramifications it had on myself and my family as I, too, was liberated together with the Baths. Much has been written about the Baths, but the story of how it came about---the 200 raids by the New York Police Department; the pressures from the Mafia; the famous people who visited it; the relationships that were formed; the drug culture that existed in the city; the political upheaval in the city of New York---all of this has never been revealed. During the 8 years that the Continental was in vogue, over 1 million people a year came through its doors. I believe that there is a large market for this book in the gay world, where it is internationally famous, and in the straight world, because of the prominence of its stars. The gay population of the US, using Kinseys formula of about 10% to 16% of the population, would be well over 20 million. Latest census figures show that 25% of that population is over the age of 40. These 5 million people, I would presume, would be our primary target. The book, however, would not only appeal to those who lived through the 70s, but also to the young amongst us to whom the 70s, the Baths and Bette Midler represent a fascinating golden era that they will never experience, but can only read about. Woven through the book is my own journey as I simultaneously pursued an operatic career, having sung with some of the most famous opera stars in the world in Germany, France, the United States, Canada and Australia. I also try to explore and share the confusion and frustrations I have felt as a bisexual, not understood by the gay or the straight world.

Book Summary:

This manuscript that you are reading is not a book in the traditional sense of the word. It is rather a compilation of thoughts and experiences I have had and various treatises that I have felt compelled to write over the last few years. It is because of my desire to share these observations that I have decided to put them together. They all served to codify my thoughts and feelings and convey what I personally believe in areas of health of body, mind and spirit. Because some of these articles were written at different times, you may find certain truths repeated from time to time. Please forgive this and edit them out; it is my feeling that they serve to reinforce that which has helped me to arrive happily at three score and ten. I still refer back to this book as a resource and find its validity for me to be sustaining. If it helps you to have at least one happier day, it will have fulfilled its purpose.

Book Summary:

This is the follow-up to New Techniques For 5 String Banjo, Volume 1 - Beginner. The first section is a review of important aspects of Volume 1, such as reading Tablature notation, rhythm, picking, fretting, chords that were used in Volume 1, time signatures and banjo rolls. The use of the capo is introduced, along with many sample tunes that incorporate the capo, such as "Cripple Creek," and "Devil's Dream," among others. New chords are presented: Emin, Dmin, and F along with tunes to go along with them - "Little Maggie" and "Old Joe Clark" to name just a couple. There is a discussion of how to move chord "shapes" around the banjo neck to get different inversions of the same chord. An expansion of repertoire of popular bluegrass tunes is emphasized. Besides some of the aforementioned tunes, there is "Red Wing," "Bile Dem Cabbage Down," "Soldier's Joy," and "Turkey in the Straw." Provided with these popular tunes are several variations for each one, along with various suggested ideas on accompaniment for them. There is an entire chapter devoted to Waltzes: "The Ash Grove," and "All the Good Times" to name a couple. Practice tips include a discussion of how to get the most valuable use out of practicing with a metronome. Toward the end of the book, there is an all-important discussion of Banjo Licks: How to practice them, and how to put them into use in your everyday playing. The book offers a free audio companion which plays through every musical example in the book, along with Banjo/Guitar versions of all the main tunes for an interactive jamming experience for the novice banjoist. A Glossary of musical terms is provided which explains many aspects of Music Theory as simply and succinctly as possible, as well as ANY term used in the book that the author considered something requiring further explanation. To summarize, the author hopes that this Volume 2 Banjo Book can be of tremendous value to the later beginner as both a bridge to enhanced playing technique and a reference of musical knowledge regarding the Banjo.
