A first biography of one of Britain's leading lyric songwriters. The Man Who Wrote The Teddy Bears' Picnic tells the story of Irish-born Jimmy Kennedy, one of the last - and arguably the finest - of the professional Tin Pan Alley songwriters of the pre-Beatles 'golden age' of popular song. A fascinating insight into the life of a man who rose from small town beginnings to become for fifty years the lyrical and musical power behind some of the twentieth century’s top popular song entertainers from the days of Variety right up to The Beatles era. Jimmy had something like 30 No. 1 hits to his credit worldwide but is little known outside of music business circles. The book, written by his younger son, ex journalist J.J.Kennedy, sets out to remedy this omission and celebrates his contribution to the genre. Though his romantic ballads like Red Sails in the Sunset continue to be played all round the world, Jimmy is possibly best rembered today for the Cokey Cokey, which he adapted from a Canadian folk song in 1943, and The Teddy Bears' Picnic, which gave magical childrens' words to an old American tune. Well written and easy to read, the book serves as an excellent historical record of pop – and is full of facts, observations and authoritative comment on the cut and thrust ‘village’ that was Tin Pan Alley. It captures the bustle of the place and its almost industrial approach to song creation. It paints a colourful picture of some of the leading characters of the period and exposes the double dealing, greed and downright exploitation prevalent in that world. But the book also creates a romantic mysticism around the characters who dashed around in Denmark street, peddling their talent – so often in vain. It transports you to smoky little rooms with music coming from every corridor and it tells the story in black and white, like an old Hollywood movie. Swimming among all these sharks is the unlikely figure of Jimmy Kennedy – dapper and charming, modest and artistically fine-tuned, yet steely, resilient and highly commercial. A man who could spot the financial worth of his work, write to order – sometimes in lightning-quick time – and stand his ground when he knew he had a hit. He was in fact, a one man hit machine. But it wasn’t always one man, and the book illuminates the winning partnerships with Michael Carr, Will Grosz et al. One of the key strengths of the book is its nostalgia appeal and has some wonderful anecdotes including recollections from Terry Wogan, Val Doonican and others and non-musical people such as Denis and Margaret Thatcher. All in all, a very intelligent book and one which will become a work of reference for anyone studying the popular music art form of the twentieth century.

The bestselling author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy offers a globetrotting, Sam Spade-style investigation that blows the lid off the oil industry, the banking industry, and the governmental agencies that aren't regulating either. This is the story of the corporate vultures that feed on the weak and ruin our planet in the process-a story that spans the globe and decades. For Vultures' Picnic, investigative journalist Greg Palast has spent his career uncovering the connection between the world of energy (read: oil) and finance. He's built a team that reads like a casting call for a Hollywood thriller-a Swiss multilingual investigator, a punk journalist, and a gonzo cameraman-to reveal how environmental disasters like the Gulf oil spill, the Exxon Valdez, and lesser-known tragedies such as Tatitlek and Torrey Canyon are caused by corporate corruption, failed legislation, and, most interestingly, veiled connections between the financial industry and energy titans. Palast shows how the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, World Trade Organization, and Central Banks act as puppets for Big Oil. With Palast at the center of an investigation that takes us from the Arctic to Africa to the Amazon, Vultures' Picnic shows how the big powers in the money and oil game slip the bonds of regulation over and over again, and simply destroy the rules that they themselves can't write-and take advantage of nations and everyday people in the process.

An enhanced eBook featuring fifteen videos from investigative reporter Greg Palast’s globetrotting, Sam Spade-style investigation—including extraordinary footage of pre-dawn stake-outs of billionaire financial vultures, narrowly avoiding prison in Azerbaijan (shot with a spy-pen camera), exploring the inside a whale carcass in the Arctic and trekking deep in the Amazon rainforest. Watch as Palast connects the dots of corruption between the oil industry, the financial sector, and the government. On April 20, 2010, BP’s Deepwater Horizon exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, killing eleven men and spilling million of barrels of crude oil into the water. Days later, a confidential cable arrives on investigative reporter Greg Palast’s desk from a terrified insider. He has the real, hushed-up facts of the disaster––facts that can only be found buried in the files of a Central Asian dictatorship. Taking him and his team of journalist-detectives from the streets of Baku, where Palast searches for a brown valise full of millions, to a small Eskimo village where he hears first hand of the depth of deceit and heartbreaking environmental devastation, to a burnt out nuclear reactor in Japan to Chevron's operations in the Amazon jungle, Vultures’ Picnic charts the course of Palast’s quest to bring the truth of the BP disaster to light. Along the way, we see the many other crimes perpetrated by the energy giants of the worlds, the banks that fund their lies, and the governments that turn a blind eye. Like a page-turning spy thriller, full of mystery, intrigue, and featuring a reporter with the guts to get arrested, chase down insiders, or stakeout a Vulture in the still of a winter morning, Vultures’ Picnic is pulp non-fiction at its best. It’s a journey into the corrupt heart of Big Oil, and behind it, Bigger Finance, exposing once and for all the corporate vultures that feed on the weak, and poison our planet.
