About this book
Taking its name from a fortification established more than 160 years ago during the Second Seminole War, Fort Lauderdale boasts a history stretching back 5,000 years before the first white settlers arrived in the eighteenth century. From beautiful tales of the "mysterious" New River that helped launch the community to more recent stories of rum running and gambling, segregation and integration, and boom and bust, the history of this Florida city is told here through the everyday lives of those who lived it.

    0 5/5 Stephen M Mix (Beaufort, SC United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: I'm A Song (Audio CD) Excellent release; how does his originality and quality remain so high when he releases so many recordings? This one has a country sound in the vain of Whisper and Country Super Hits Volume One. Twenty songs and none a throwaway. Best album of 2014 for me so far. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 14, 2014

    Pure twang!! (They don't make 'em like this anymore...)

    Jim Lauderdale"I'm A Song"(Sky Crunch Records, 2014). . . .A rock-solid hard-country set from Nashville tunesmith Jim Lauderdale.A highly successful Top 40 songwriter, Lauderdale often seems to revel in his own stubborn square-peggedness, packing his albums with odd, angular, idiosyncratic tunes that sometimes don't have the singalong choruses one usually associates with Nashville hits... On this record, though, he delivers perhaps his best, most concentrated, purest honky-tonk album to date, packing in one tight, muscular tune after another. The musicianship is superb, full of punchy, early '70s-style Nashville twang, a style that perfectly matches Lauderdale's vocals, which mimic George Jones' earthy, soulful style of the era. And each song is a gem, one sincere, heartbroken heartsong after another.Lauderdale revisits older material such as "The King Of Broken Hearts," a classic weeper recorded by George Strait back in the early... 5/5 DJ Joe Sixpack ( Middle America) - See all my reviews, July 24, 2014

    0 4/5 Sylvester (New Nexico) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: I'm A Song (Audio CD) You just can't beat the consistency of the recordings by Jim Lauderdale. They always have great songs, catchy melodies, and great musicianship! This one is especially nice, because has twice as many songs as most CD's. If you like him, buy him! If you like good country songs, try him. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 15, 2014

    "Into you world"

    Several years ago I was watching a 2008 DVD entitled "20 Years After". The movie was marginal at best, what really grabbed my attention were certain selections in the soundtrack. Scrolling through the credits is how I first came in contact with the work of Lauderdale. They are a 5-piece band out of Muscle Shoals, Alabama who had released there initial album "Lauderdale" in 2007.Niles Lee - Vocals/GuitarPatrick McDonald - DrumsDanielle Stoddard - Guitar/Steel/VocalsMatt Green - BassBen Tanner - Keyboard/VocalsThis second album aptly entitled "Moving On" is a definite forward progression, with more keyboards, in expanding their repertoire. In attempting to categorize this sound I have heard opinions ranging from Rock to Grunge to Americana. One friend of mine likens them to the "Wallflowers". The music can be as up tempo and driven as it can be melodic and poignant. Great acoustics and drums throughout... 5/5 Bowman "9001" (Japetus, Saturn) - See all my reviews, January 12, 2014


    0 5/5 Julie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Moving on (Audio CD) The first time I heard the title track, "Moving On," my heart sank into my stomach and I fell in love. I am a huge Lucero fan and read that these guys have the same feel . The singer, Niles Lee, has the voice of a raspy, heartbroken angel. Really good stuff, I hope I get to see them live soon! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 16, 2013
