This book is the exclusive, behind-the-scenes, inside story of iconic disc jockey Georgie Woods' spectacular R&B shows at Philadelphia's Uptown Theater, and how the controlled creative chaos at the majestic movie house inspired "The Philly Sound." Told by the people who actually lived it, this is the first comprehensive history on the Uptown, which was once a mandatory stop on the legendary "chitlin' circuit." It features the intimate, amusing, outrageous and sometimes scandalous stories of dozens of decorated entertainers, including 11 Rock and Roll Hall of Famers. All agree that like Georgie Woods' soulful theme song that opened his R&B extravaganzas, every show at the Uptown Theater was a "Joy Ride!"
