Hidden History of Nashville

Creator: George R. Zepp | History - 2009

In this unique collection of columns, longtime journalist and Tennessee native George Zepp illuminates a less familiar side of the city.

Publisher: The History Press

About this book
Perched on the banks of the Cumberland River, Nashville is best known for its role in the civil rights movement, world-class education and, of course, country music. In this unique collection of columns, longtime journalist and Tennessee native George Zepp illuminates a less familiar side of the city. Learn the secrets of Timothy Demonbreun, one of the city's first residents, who lived with his family in a cliff-top cave; Cortelia Clark, the blind bluesman who continued to perform on street corners after winning a Grammy award; and Nashville's own Cinderella story, which involved legendary radio personality Edgar Bergen and his ventriloquist protge. Cleverly rendered, using questions from readers across the nation, these little-known tales abound with Music City mystery and charm.

Processed Cheese — J. L. Kraft grew up on a dairy farm in Stevensville, Ontario. While working as a grocer he was struck by the amount of cheese that was wasted on wheels of cheddar when the dried rind was scraped off to get at the fresh interior. He resolved to find a way to use this “waste” product, experimenting with double boilers, preservatives and cheddar. Eventually he found a way of stabilizing the dairy product that has come to be known as processed cheese.2. Frozen Foods — The technology to freeze food quickly and transport it to markets far away was developed in Halifax in 1928. Within a year, “ice fillets” were being sold to fish-deprived Torontonians who loved the taste and didn’t seem to mind the high price tag. Despite this, the fishing industry and private companies lost interest and quickly mothballed the project. In 1930, a feisty American, Colonel Clarence Birdseye, claimed responsibility for developing frozen foods and promptly made a fortune.3. Pablum — Invented in 1930 by Dr. Alan Brown, assisted by researchers Theodore Drake and Fred Tisdall. The add-water baby cereal revolutionized infant nutrition, and, of course, became synonymous with food that was bland and mushy.4. Poutine — Although many claim responsibility for the crowd-pleasing combination of squeaky cheese curds, canned gravy and french fries, it is generally agreed that the first order of this regional specialty of Quebec was served up by restaurant owner Fernand Lachance in 1957. Many variations on the original recipe exist including one deluxe version with foie gras served in Montreal’s Pied de Cochon bistro.

    Great show, but the DVD set is pretty bare bones

    +++Warning...this will contain spoilers from prior seasons, but no major giveaways from season 3. If you have not seen the prior seasons proceed with caution+++The third season of Nashville very much keeps the prime time soap opera feel that the show has had. The focus is, of course still on the various relationships between the various characters, romantic and otherwise.The Rayna, Deacon Jeff Wheeler triangle continues throughout the season, and is, to some extent resolved. But the season finale ends on a major cliffhanger (again) involving Deacon and Rayna.Will is still struggling with his sexuality, keeping up appearances with his fake marriage to Layla which sends her into a tailspin, which makes for one of the very good ancillary story lines of the season. Will's story line is really about how it is becoming harder and harder to keep the secret.Hayden Panettiere's role was a bit reduced this season because of her real life... 4/5 Mike S.

    No special features

    4/5 C.S. (Louisiana) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville: Season 3 (DVD) Love this show and was going to buy the season regardless, but I was very disappointed that there weren't any special features on the Season 3 DVD set. I hope for season 4 they will go back to including deleted scenes and bloopers like they did for the first two seasons. The fans deserve at least that much!

    Has lost its appeal

    2/5 Elle S - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville: Season 3 (DVD) As with so many of today's series that start out with really good story lines, Nashville appears to have put aside its' entertaining beginnings and is now going for idiotic sensationalism via all the bed hopping and other issues that personify lack of morals issues. Too bad, we used to enjoy the show and loved the music but have now tuned this series out. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 14, 2016

    Best of Altman, and why not to trust loud-speaking anti-gov't candidates.

    4/5 M. E. Sheehy - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville (DVD) I think Nashville is one of Robert Altman's best movies. I've watched it many times. Ordered the dvd because my old tape no longer played well on my dvd/vcr machine. I found it interesting to watch again during this 2016 US primary election season because in the movie a 3rd party pres. candidate is running as anti-gov't, and in 2016, a non-Republican has hijacked the R. nomination for Pres., on anti-gov't (anti- everything) rant, and a non-Democrat came close to hijacking the Dem. nomination. In 1975 it was the Viet Nam war that divided the US populace. Now? Anyway, great cast, marvelous performances and music. Best scene, for me: when Barbara Harris picks up the microphone at the end and belts out her song. Wonderful movie, 36 yrs. later. A classic.

    Nashville - Bowling for Movies Score...

    Bowling for Movies Score: 283.125 of 300What is Bowling for Movies you might ask - it's a score that I, just your average dude, have come up with to rate and score movies. I watch movies - many MANY movies. Using the most affordable technology and a mixture of pseudo and quasi science (with some nacho cheese thrown in to hold it all together), I have developed a formula (which literally has nothing to do with bowling) to define the pure essence of Hollywood magic... displayed as a score ranging from 0 to 300. A score of 108 would be a "just ok, not particularly good / bad" movie, where a score of 192 would tell you it was a very good movie. Now, break 200 and you've got something really special. Throw too many "gutterballs" will land you under 100 and well - you get the idea. :]Nashville - 1975 - DVDMovie Explanation (no-there is too much, let me sum up):Nashville is a movie about fame. Obtaining fame, keeping fame, what happens... 5/5 J. Thomason (South East Texas) - See all my reviews, August 4, 2013

    Better Cast - Impossible.

    5/5 Kandy Langford (Menlo Park, CA, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville (DVD) Have seen multiple times - will see multiple more. Each character - a gem unto it's self. The matching of actors to roles is a thing of beauty. Entire movie circles around Barbara Jean - as the earth around the sun. She's the beginning - she's the end. Ronee Blakely i.e. Barbara Jean wrote all her own songs. She recorded a little known album of her "Nashville" music - incredible talent. Each character entwined in ways that are pure genius, but then again Robert Altman is a genius. Lily Tomlin selfless/ selfish. Ah, Keith Carradine - we've all known one. At least one of his songs became a commercial success For you who didn't know - everyone wrote their own songs. Was completely taken back - they not only could sing, but could write too. Was Opal really from the BBC? Too many characters to write about. The end (after BJ) - Barbra Harris - sums up "Nashville" the only way possible...
