Author Dave Morrell is a guy you just love to hate! He’s the guy that had that job working in the WEA distribution center…touching, feeling, smelling, caressing, fondling and listening to all the new records that all us ordinary people had to wait to get our hands on! And he had the audacity to write a book about it!
After reading that Dave Morrell was to be a guest on Jude Kessler’s John Lennon Hour show on November 18, 2014, I decided it might be worth my while to find out who this guy is. Jude wrote that he was friends with John Lennon and had written a book called Horse-Doggin’. When I checked on Amazon, the Kindle version of Horse-Doggin’ was only 79 pages, presenting me with the opportunity to get the book and read it before his interview tonight.
If you like books with fluffy words and long drawn out descriptions of a look, a sunset or a song, this is not the book for you. Dave is very concise and direct with his words. There are no paragraphs with the same sentence written three different ways in this book! Just the way I like my books. He gets straight to the point of telling his stories without a lot of nonsense filler. Along the way through his post high school years, he attends to the very best concerts of 1972-1973, meets musical legends backstage and at parties and even shares and exchanges albums with John Lennon. He holds the very first Beatles convention in his bedroom and is often referred to as a Beatles Freak!
Wonderful book with wonderful stories. Not the best writing style…but it’ll get you through the night!
I rate this book: 3 out of 4 Beetles!
