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.

Ira Basen and Jane Farrow have augmented the existing lists with fascinating homegrown material, and compiled lists specifically of relevance to Canadian readers.So if you’ve always wanted to find out how porcupines really mate, how comedy can kill and — that most essential piece of knowledge — how long the longest recorded nose was, this is the book for you.

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.

    Surprised me !

    4/5 Deborah S. Eden (Phila, PA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville Season 1 (Amazon Video) I am not a fan of country music and never would I have even tried this show except one night I was watching something else and I turned this on just because something caught my attention I don't even recall what it was . Lo and behold it took two episodes and I was completely hooked now I'm just finishing up season one so I'm nowhere near the current 5th season but man it's a good show Hayden pantierre really surprised me and since American horror I always liked Connie Brighton is it? I'm not sure of her name but the main character with the long red hair. She's just amazing love the mom is a drug user and the country twang and flavor of it all, very nice mixture and I even enjoy the singing and again country is just my least favorite type of music but mixed in the way it is here it's just a nice show that I thoroughly enjoy.

    Fun, Sudsy Stuff with Terrific Musical Performances

    Plots are soapy, but lots of great musical performances make it worth it. The actors are all pretty good even with the turgid plot lines. Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio are Australian and English respectively, but their country music accents are just right and their duets are stunning. Check out "If I Didn't Know Better". Loveable Connie Britton as long-time country music queen "Rayna James", looks and acts the part, but her voice is barely up to the hype attributed to Rayna. Shoulda dubbed her. "Rayna" loves "Deacon", played by Chip Esten, but they've been unable to hook up since their early careers, even though Deacon fathered Rayna's daughter, now 14. And he doesn't even know! They just keep circling each other and we just keep rooting for them get on with it. They have beaucoup chemistry.Hayden Panettierre is a little over-the-top, spoiled diva-wannabe, hoping to assume Rayna's crown. However, she's a hot mess and a little goes a long... 4/5 Birder Girl (Tucson, AZ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    4/5 BetsyPreston (St. Paul, MN USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Music Of Nashville Original Soundtrack Season 5 Volume 1 (Deluxe Version) (MP3 Music) I have NOT listened to the CD yet, but I have loved every other soundtrack and the Season 5 non-album singles that I have purchased.I am writing this review in order specify the songs which are NOT included on the CD version: Close To the Fire featuring Joseph David-Jones, and To Make You Feel My Love by Maisy Stella. These are tracks 11 and 12 on the MP3 "deluxe" version of the soundtrack. If I understand correctly, both of these songs are available for purchase as singles (I did not notice that they had an "album-only" restriction).It's up to you to decide whether it's better to own a physical disc vs the MP3-only version of the album, and if it's worth it even if you have to buy two electronic-only songs in addition to the CD.

    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.

    Movie a Must! (DVD a mixed bag.)

    First, the DVD. Unlike some other viewers, I find the visual clarity, color saturation, and audio presence to be perfectly acceptable (after seeing some horrible 16mm prints ten years ago, I was prepared for the worst). You'll be able to spot Ronee Blakely's eyes tearing up as well as distinguish the multiple dialogues in Altman's polyphonous soundtrack. But of all my DVD's, this is the most temperamental. I cast spells on it, sprinkle it with holy water, pray and wait with bated breath. Sometimes my player recognizes it as a playable disc (after excruciatingly long waits); other times it simply refuses to play it.The other main downside of the disc is the soundtrack commentary by director Altman (thank goodness, you have the option to ignore this "special feature" altogether). While no author should be trusted as an authority about his own child, the saying goes double for an "intuitive" creative mind such as Altman's. His remarks are banal, fatuous... 5/5 Samuel C.

    Disappointed

    1/5 Jacqueline Manderscheid - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville (DVD) Sorry to say the DVD would not play. It's either defective or my player incompatible. I ordered Nashville from this merchant, and Coal Miner's Daughter from another online seller to use during a recent visit to Tennessee/Kentucky. One worked, this one didn't. Bum luck! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 30, 2017

    Congrats, CMT.

    5/5 Amazon Customer (GA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville Season 5 (Amazon Video) So glad this show moved to CMT. Also REALLY relieved we can still get it via Amazon - I was worried I'd have to get a Hulu subscription, lol! The new batch of writers really knocked it out of the park with the S5 opening double-header. Obviously they have some messes they need to clean up from S4 but they got a good long ways through that tonight and I'm slightly more than cautiously optimistic to see where it goes next. I bought the whole season in advance on faith (tee hee). Only thing is - pleeeeeeaaaaase bring back T-Bone Burnett as music consultant. He knew his stuff inside and out and picked great songs. Apart from (spoiler alert!) "Wayfaring Stranger" which of course is a classic, I was not totally wowed by the tunes as I used to be when T-Bone was picking them. Oh and I really hope Highway 65 doesn't go under. Having a woman helming a Nashville label is so inspiring. Anyway, congrats CMT on a great debut.
