    What can we say but it’s been a long time a coming. Hopefully this book will show what a great history Birmingham has for supporting black music.

    At Pogus Caesar’s exhibition at Fazely Studios, we stood in amazement a the photo of Stevie Wonder sitting at piano in Central Studios of all places :::
