Abstract:

Collection includes 91 audiocassette recordings of interviews about Ray Charles, a radio series about Ray Charles based on Lydon's book (2 compact discs), complete or partial transcripts for many of the interviews organized loosely into book chapters (electronic files), interviews with and about other African American musicians (3 compact discs), class lectures given by Lydon at Indiana University and related publicity materials, and original music performed by Lydon (2 compact discs). The bulk of the interviews were conducted by Lydon between 1994-1997 in preparation for his biography of Ray Charles. In addition to three interviews with Charles, there are also interviews with many of Charles's friends, family members, and associates including former managers and band members. Overall, the interviews document the significant contributions to American music by Charles, whose gospel-inflected rhythm and blues gave birth to soul. Of broader interest are the conversations with a multitude of musicians and record company personnel whose careers spanned the decades 1940-1980, providing a first person chronicle of the postwar emergence and influence of black popular music. Related materials include a BBC Radio 2 series, "Ray Charles: Man and Music" based on Lydon's book, and various promotional and biographical materials. Recent accessions include earlier interviews conducted by Lydon with Bo Diddley and Wilson Pickett. Materials documenting Lydon's career include commercial CDs featuring original music performed by Lydon, recordings of lectures given by Lydon during a 2001 visit to Indiana University, and various collected writings: Lyrics: 1971-2001 (Patrick Press, 2001); Now What?: A Philosophy of Freedom and Equality (Patrick Press, 1993); and Freedom Now!: Reports from Mississippi and the South, 1964-1965 (Patrick Press, 2002).
