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.

    why not give us a double cd?

    If you take all the songs released from Season 2 so far it would be a great to have them on a double album. There are 4 additional songs on the Deluxe Edition available at Target and 7 or 8 other singles available that are not on that cd. Why not make it easier on the show's fans and put them all on one double cd? But alas...Musically, I like the cd although it is rather different from both season 1 discs. Less of Connie Britton (not a bad thing, but they should have included one of her better numbers that is out on single,The Best Songs Come From Broken Hearts). Not as much Hayden Panettiere (just when I was really starting to like her) and only 1 duet between Clare and Sam (Scarlet & Gunner), which were the highlights of season 1. The songs that Clare sings are much less country to my ears than in season 1, which is a shame. The Chris Carmack (Will) songs are the most contemporary country radio friendly and pretty good for that style. Instead of 2 versions of A Life That's... 4/5 R.

    Another great album!

    5/5 Linda7849 (Cincinnati, OH USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Music Of Nashville Original Soundtrack: Season 2, Volume 1 (Audio CD) I love the way this album has a little bit of everyone on this show. They are all so talented. I can't pick a favorite but I was lucky to get the edition with the Charles Esten song, A Life that's Good -- such a great song. I enjoy Chaley Rose's version of Wayfaring Stranger, a great traditional version. The Stella sisters are adorable and I always enjoy their music. Jonathan Jackson has never been my favorite but he's won me over with How you Learn to Live Alone. Claire and Sam's Why Can't I say Goodnight is wonderful but they never disappoint. I wish people would quit criticizing Connie Britton -- I think her sons are great. The only criticism I can give is that I'd love to hear Will Chase do a ballad because I'm a ballad kind of person. Maybe in the next edition which I'll be looking forward to. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 2, 2014
