Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Story Behind the Song is Famed Publisher's
First All-Celebrity Release
Christina Aguilera, Melissa Etheridge, Lamont Dozier, Paul Anka, Kanye West,
Richie Sambora, & other top songwriters tell entertainment veteran Jo-Ann
Geffen their inspiration and techniques

COS COB, Conn., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Musicians love to say that every song
tells a story, but they are usually tight-lipped about the story behind the
song. Was it really scribbled on a napkin? What love interest was the real
inspiration? If we knew the real story behind our favorite songs, would we
ever listen to them the same way again?

Chicken Soup for the Soul® has partnered with veteran Hollywood publicist,
talent manager, and celebrity booker Jo-Ann Geffen for the first all-celebrity
book from the top-selling brand. Geffen peels back the curtain on 101 songs,
songwriters, and artists with the upcoming release of Chicken Soup for the
Soul: The Story Behind the Song (Chicken Soup for the Soul, LLC, November 10,
2009, 978-1-935096-40-5, $14.95). Jo-Ann Geffen is credited as editor along
with Chicken Soup for the Soul co-founders Jack Canfield and Mark Victor
Hansen. The foreword is by Lamont Dozier, who is credited as an architect of
the Motown sound.

The book reflects on many of our favorite songs that trace our lives through
all genres of music. Some of those who tell their very personal stories
include hitmakers Richie Sambora, Christina Aguilera, Melissa Etheridge, John
Legend, the Backstreet Boys' Howie Dorough, Kanye West, Jewel and classic rock
performer/songwriters like Chicago's Robert Lamm, Foreigner's Mick Jones, and
Daryl Hall and John Oates; and alternative rockers Aaron Lewis of Staind and
Corey Taylor of Slipknot. Readers will learn the story behind pop classics by
Barry Manilow, Hal David, Diane Warren, and Paul Anka, rockers Jerry Cantrell
of Alice In Chains and Joan Jett, as well as from R&B songmasters including
Nathan Morris on the Boyz II Men/Mariah Carey hit "One Sweet Day," Walter
Orange of the Commodores, Smokey Robinson, and Earth Wind and Fire's Philip
Bailey and country singer/songwriters Tracy Lawrence, Ray Stevens, and Pam

Some bring laughter, others bring tears, but all are insightful and great
reading for music fans, aficionados or people who just like a good story. Each
of the tales is accompanied by a photo and the lyrics for the song that is

During their two sold-out performances, Hall and Oates thrilled the crowd with their seemingly endless list of unforgettable hits, including "Sara Smile," "Maneater," "Out Of Touch," "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)," "Rich Girl," "Kiss On My List," "You Make My Dreams," and "Private Eyes."

WHEN: Sunday, October 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Mustached Americans Urged to Vote Oates

This is a friendly reminder from those nice folks at The American Moustache Institute. Have you voted for John Oates today?


AMI 2009
Mustached Americans Urged to Vote Oates
As music legend John Oates prepares to reunite with his once graceful mustache on Oct. 30 in St. Louis when he plays 'Stache Bash 2009 at the Orpheum Theater, as a result of his outstanding new album "1000 Miles of Life," he is currently a finalist in the prestigious Nashville Music Awards (NMA) which recognize outstanding contributions in all genres of music.

Oates' new record is nominated in the category of "MADE IN MUSIC CITY AWARD," which acknowledges a recording made in Nashville by a non-Nashville artist (category #13), and it is clearly the top choice for people of Mustached American descent.

The 2009 NMA winners will be announced Wednesday, October 7 at the Cannery Ballroom in Nashville. And until Sept. 30, YOU -- the 12.3 loyal readers of the American Mustache Institute blog -- can have a voice in who will will .

We ask that you "Vote Oates," while noting that to participate (VOTE HERE), you must vote for one artist in each category for your Oates vote to count. Keeping in mind, of course, that not only is his new album outstanding, but that he will graciously join the American Mustache Institute and its supporters at 'Stache Bash to support our event benefiting Challenger Baseball, a baseball league for childrena and adults with disabilities.

And hopefully you also join on on Oct. 30 for 'Stache Bash 2009 at the Orpheum Theater, where you'll have a chance to meet John and run your fingers through his well-coiffed hair.

Carry on.

"The Village"-including a John Oates song-being release 11/3



Lucinda Williams, Bruce Hornsby, Matt Nathanson, Shelby Lynne, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Rachael Yamagata, Los Lobos, Rickie Lee Jones, John Oates, Cowboy Junkies,
Rocco DeLuca and Others Record Heartfelt Musical Tribute To A Special Era—
The Village Of The ‘60’s

Musical Shout Out To A Treasured Scene Set For World Wide Release November 3

August 19, 2009, SANTA MONICA, CA: 429 Records has brought together a stellar roster of artist for a project titled “THE VILLAGE: A CELEBRATION OF THE MUSIC OF GREENWICH VILLAGE”—a musical homage to an influential scene that thrived during an incomparable era in the history of rock music. The Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City in the 1960’s was ground zero for a musical, political and social evolution-- McCarthy and the Red Scare era was over, the Vietnam War was simmering and poised to explode, and the civil rights movement was gaining steam just as singers like Peter Seeger, Bob Dylan and Odetta were hanging out and composing fierce and fearless songs that reflected the social conscience of a generation. The neighborhood was symbolic of a shared inspiration with artists worldwide gravitating to the vibrant streets and clubs and as such helped change the course of popular music. With THE VILLAGE, modern day artists look back and pay tribute to the artists and songs that helped nurture and shape them as successful musicians in their own right. Shelby Lynne gives a musical shout out to Dylan with her version of “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright,” Cowboy Junkies perform their heartbreaking version of Tim Buckley’s “Once I Was” and Bruce Hornsby checks in with a stunning version of The Lovin’ Spoonful’s “Darlin’ Be Home Soon.” THE VILLAGE: A CELEBRATION OF THE MUSIC OF GREENWICH VILLAGE will be released worldwide on November 3rd on 429 Records.

Says Susan Rotolo author of the recent bestseller “A Freewheelin’ Time: A Memoir of Greenwich Village in the Sixties” and writer of THE VILLAGE liner notes: “The performers from that time, and the songs they wrote, made a notable contribution not only to the legend of Greenwich Village but also to music in general. No one who is young, making music and hanging out, thinks in historical terms, but the passage of time allows for such a perspective. Cultural history was made.”

Adds participating VILLAGE artist John Oates (of Hall & Oates): “Greenwich Village has meant a lot to me over the years. Not only did I live there for a long, long time, but many of my pop songs and the things that I did with Daryl Hall have been inspired by living in the village. It have a unique ambience and atmosphere—such a magical place!

”Says Steve Vining, President of the Savoy Label Group: “It’s been gratifying to pursue this project and find so many artists who felt compelled to be a part of THE VILLAGE because the music from that time had such a strong impact on them creatively and as individuals. It’s been a labor of love for all of us and we’re extremely proud of the result.”

THE VILLAGE artists and songs:
Lucinda Williams Positively 4th Street (Dylan)
Rachael Yamagata Both Sides Now (Mitchell)
Mary Chapin Carpenter Violets of Dawn (Andersen)
Shelby Lynne Don't Think Twice, It's Alright (Dylan)
Marshall Crenshaw Didn't Want to Have to Do It (Sebastian)
Amos Lee Little Bit of Rain (Neil)
Cary Brothers
Something on Your Mind (McNeely)
Rocco DeLuca Ballad of Hollis Brown (Dylan)
Cowboy Junkies Once I Was (Buckley)
Sixpence None the Richer Wayfaring Stranger (Traditional)
Rickie Lee Jones Subterranean Homesick Blues (Dylan)
John Oates He Was a Friend of Mine (Traditional)
Mikey Powell Hard Rain's Gonna Fall (Dylan)
The Duhks It's Alright Ma, I'm Only Bleeding (Dylan)
Los Lobos Guantanamera (Diaz)
Bruce Hornsby Darlin' Be Home Soon (Sebastian)
Jesse Malin I Am a Rock (Simon)
Matt Nathanson I Ain't Marching (Ochs)

THE VILLAGE will be released on November 3rd on 429 Records and be distributed by Fontana in the U.S. and E1 (formerly Koch) in Canada. The European release will also be on November 3rd via SLG’s agreement with Proper Music Distribution and the Australian release via Universal will take place on October 30th. A comprehensive press, radio, viral and traditional marketing and retail advertising campaign will be launched in each of the key international territories.

429 Records is a unit of the Savoy Label Group (SLG). SLG is the North American unit of CME (Columbia Music Entertainment, formerly Nippon Columbia), the oldest music company in Japan. The Savoy Label Group has evolved into a leading independent company consistently outperforming competitors in key music categories as monitored by Billboard Magazine.

Our friends over at Hall and Oates Forever are kicking off our own version of 'Stache Bash! From now until November 6, we are holding our own tribute to the man who originally gave us the 'Stache, John Oates. John will be attending 'Stache Bash this year, and we are lending him our moral support!

We are looking for pictures of YOU with a 'Stache, and if you don't have one, you can Adobe Photoshop one on yourself! Or if you aren't that creative, then please find one of your favorite John Oates pictures from back in the day when he still had his 'Stache. Or you can use a current picture of him and Photoshop a 'Stache on him!
On November 6, the day John will be at the fest, I will be posting some of the pictures here on our blog!
To post a picture or look at what others have posted, please click here:


If you aren't member yet, don't worry-registration takes less than a second then you can post your picture!


In the meantime, here I am getting 'Stache advice from the Master himself. As you can see, I have't quite gotten it right yet. I don't think I put enough Rogaine on!
