John Kruth discusses his new book Hold On World with Pat Thomas at Book Soup

8-5-21 6–9PM PDT, Book Soup Online Event
Dear Friends,
I had the honor of being interviewed by John Kruth for his new book “Hold On World” about John Lennon “Plastic Ono Band” album. My Holy Brother Willie Aron suggested I get interviewed for the book since Willie knew it was a life changing album for me upon it’s release in 1970. Kruth and I spend an afternoon listening to the album on vinyl and had an epic hang. You can find me in the index of the book near Brian Epstein. Enjoy. Marvin Etzioni

“My Name is Sparkle” Album Review
“An absolute joy from start to finish. A beautifully conceived, executed and lovingly crafted chain of songs from Peter Case, a guy who has been crafting great songs for decades now, from early classics like “A Million Miles Away” (with his band The Plimsouls) through much solo greatness such as “Put Down The Gun,” “Beyond The Blues” and so many others.”…
