  2. Iconic book fitting an iconic label 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Mar 2021

    Fortune is one of those vintage R&B labels fans and collectors obsess about, with its releases spanning styles, trends, and even genres. At a mighty 500+ pages, Mind over Matter unlocks the Fortune mystique in mind-blowing detail—deep oral histories from artists and devotees, color label pix, and tons of memorabilia from the label’s people, places, and things. Casual and studio shots of the acts, trade-paper ads and reviews, pictures of clubs and neighborhood streets—it’s all here. You’ll want to eat lunch with Jack and Devora, and hang out with Nolan and Andre at the Twenty Grand. An indispensable musical and social portrait of Detroit, preserving a near-vanished era of independent labels.

  4. Outstanding 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Feb 2021

    Congratulations to Miriam, Michael and the Kicks Books staff for getting this to the finish line after Billy’s passing. If you can afford the cost of this book, do not hesitate as it is a first class publication in all aspects. A massive book loaded with pictures, records sleeves, Fortune Records ephemera and a great story to tell of the colorful characters that make up the history of the label. One of the best music related books you will ever see. Highly recommended!

  6. Buy This Book 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2021

    I don't know when I've ever been so excited to receive a book! This is a clear labor of love. If you're going to take on a great topic like Fortune Records, this is how you do it. If you are thinking of getting this, don't hesitate. I cannot recommend it enough.

  7. Great addition to the blues literature 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jan 2021

    This is a fascinating book about Fortune records. It is beautifully produced hardback with a sewn binding and quality coated paper pages and many coloured illustrations. The contents appear to be well researched over many years and the whole thing is obviously a labour of love by the authors and a fitting tribute to the late Billy Miller. The cost is no more than many rare Fortune records which would be even more expensive and in my view this book is a bargain. Ordered from the UK on a Monday the book arrived on the Thursday. That's service for you. Buy before it goes out of print !

  8. Highest quality - all over! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jan 2021

    Love this book! So much passion has gone into it + the design & production of the printed hard cover book - top notch paper quality, even the format is great!
    Expensive, but well worth the money! Highly recommended!

    PS. FedEx did a great job in shipping it fast and hazzle free from Cleveland to Stockholm, Sweden.
