Jerry Masters, our resident "old sixties rock star" is still our biggest attention getter. What do Charlie Rich, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Joe Cocker, Rod Stewart, Paul Simon, Burt Reynolds, Bob Seger, Liza Minelli, Donny Osmond, Jerry Lee Lewis, Steve Winwood, Paul Anka, Wayne Newton, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Rivers, Cat Stevens, Boz Scaggs, Ronny and the Daytonas, The Hombres, Clarence Carter, The Osmonds, Wilson Pickett, J.J. Cale, Bobby Womack, Leon Russell, Luther Ingram, Jim Capaldi, Canned Heat, Percy Sledge, Candi Staton, Simon & Garfunkle, Blackfoot, Mary MacGregor, Kim Carnes, Dr. Hook, Foxy, Mac Davis, Rita Coolidge, Andy Williams, Peter Yarrow, Traffic, and Will McFarlane all have in common? The answer is Jerry Masters! Jerry started his music career playing bass for the great Charlie Rich and before the first decade was over he had moved on touring with Ronny and the Daytonas supporting the hit song, Little GTO. From the musicians of that group he went on to form The Hombres who had the hit song, Let It All Hang Out, a song that has experienced a revival on You Tube and on the hit TV show, Cold Case. With over 50 years in rock music, Jerry Masters went from sixties rock star to recording engineer, working with many of the most recognized performers in the world. He mixed and engineered some of the greatest songs and recordings of our time. Jerry's book HANGING FROM A TREE BY MY KNEES is still a great read and an incredible insight into the rock world of the sixties and seventies.
Then just when you you thought we'd learned our lesson we signed a contract to release Virginia Tea Party member Jonathan Wakefield's new book, SAVING AMERICA - A CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE OF THE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT. You might remember Jonathan from interviews with the Glen Beck Show about his show down with the city of Richmond, VA over charging the Tea Party for use of a city park while refusing to charge the Occupier's for use of the same park. Crossover is pleased to announce the release of this excellently written and edited book on April 15th 2012.
Numerous books have been written about the Tea Party since its surprising explosion onto the political scene, but few if any have been written from a Christian perspective, despite many Christians being active in the movement. In SAVING AMERICA, author Jonathan Wakefield, a Tea Party leader and an ordinary citizen with virtually no political engagement before 2009, examines the powerful movement with an insider’s perspective and from a biblical context. He explains why he felt compelled to finally get active in helping shape his nation’s future, making the case that the Tea Party’s core principles align with Scripture and represent America’s best hope for surviving its current crises caused by both political parties expanding governmental power and ultimately thriving again. Written for Tea Party supporters and skeptics, as well religious and non-religious individuals, SAVING AMERICA will challenge all readers to think through their basic assumptions and beliefs and consider their roles as responsible citizens at this critical time in world history.
