U.S. fans have had to wait longer than expected, but Keith Hayward's Tin Pan Alley: The Rise of Elton John is now available at Amazon.com.
It has received some impressive reviews. . . .
Shindig! magazine describes the book as ''fascinating,'' while Mojo considers it ''essential reading for any lover of old school music.''
And the fanzine, Mudkiss, says: ''As an author and music historian whose credentials lie with literally being there at the time and also in gathering a comprehensive set of accounts and insights from the significfant characters, publishers and players of the times, Hayward has drawn together a fascinating insight into how the music industry used to operate.''
The Kindle edition will be available in a few days.
