Michael McAlpin collection by Michael McAlpin( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Michael McAlpin Collection consists primarily of print materials used in the production of the PBS television documentary Record Row: the Cradle of Rhythm and Blues, which first aired in February 1997. VHS tapes of the rough cut and final broadcast versions of the documentary as well as local coverage by PBS station WTIU (Bloomington, IN) are also included. Complete transcripts of interviews conducted for the documentary feature many prominent scholars, musicians, and industry professionals. Between 1950 and 1980, Chicago was home to a score of independent recording companies, most notably Chess Records. Produced by McAlpin, Record Row tells the story of the birth and emergence of the rhythm and blues and soul music industry along a 12-block stretch of South Michigan Avenue known as Chicago's "Music Mile" or "Record Row." It is the story of a group of men and women, largely African American, whose ambition, talent, and business skills created the Chicago sound - a musical style that revolutionized popular music around the world. AAAMC director, Dr. Portia Maultsby, served as a consultant and collaborator during the creation of the documentary
