In the latest issue of Perfect Sound Forever <>, you'll find (among other things):

Interview- jazz/soul organist extraordinaire, by Robin Cook
"Standing at the crossroads of psychedelia and R&B, Brian Auger, Julie Driscoll, and the Trinity became stars in Britain and abroad in the late 1960's. Their signature song, "This Wheel's On Fire," became a top 10 hit in the UK. The band's eclectic legacy is now being celebrated with a new boxed set. Brian Auger himself was on hand to delve into the band's evolution and his own musical beginnings."

Chronicling the essentials of the Calypso superstar, by Kurt Wildermuth
"If you've been paying attention during your years on Earth, you have a sense of Belafonte as a historically important actor, activist, and humanitarian. You may know him as a musical performer. You may think of him foremost as a Black man. Whatever your sense of Belafonte, I don't have information to add to that portrait. I'm here to help spread the good news that as a singer--I mean simply in terms of vocal and interpretive ability--and as a recording artist he is extraordinary."

Interview- the Irredeemable R&B Legend, by Bob Gersztyn
"Back in July 2002, Turner appeared at the "Waterfront Blues Festival" in Portland, Oregon. His fourteenth wife, Audrey Madison Turner, who he married in 2006 was a member of the band at the time. A couple of months later, I managed to get a phone interview with Turner where I questioned him about his genesis and some of the people that he helped on their way to stardom."
