G. Brown — Author of On Record A Book Series to Hold In-Store Book Signing in Salt Lake City on Saturday, August 27

G. Brown – Author, On Record

On Record Book Series

In-store signing set for Saturday, August 27 at 4 p.m. at SOUND & VISION VINYL – 3444 S. Main St, South Salt Lake, UT

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, UNITED STATES , August 4, 2022 / — Respected veteran music journalist, broadcaster, and historian G. Brown has authored the first three volumes in an encyclopedic series of books entitled On Record and looks at the evolution of popular music from 1978 to 1998 through images, interviews, and insights.

A special meet-and-greet and author signing has been set at SOUND & VISION VINYL – 3444 S. Main St., South Salt Lake, UT on Saturday, August 27 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Phone: (385) 229-4165.

Each volume of the award-winning On Record series highlights 200 limited and extraordinary images and 100 profiles with an array of musical artists from the late Jerry Garcia and Dave Matthews to Bono and Carlos Santana. Every edition is beautifully crafted and geared to every music fan, library, and institution.

Celebrating his 50th year as one of America’s foremost popular music writers, Colorado-based G. Brown has interviewed more than 2,500 musicians, including Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger, and Kurt Cobain, all of whom recounted their escapades and reminisced about what their time on the charts meant to them personally and musically.

“Vol 1: 1978” — Classic rockers from Journey to Bruce Springsteen to the Cars, nascent new wavers such as the Police, Talking Heads, and the Clash, as well as the year’s greatest releases from rock, R&B, country, and jazz stars.

“Vol. 2: 1984” — The biggest artists of the MTV era—Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Huey Lewis, and even “Weird Al” Yankovic—in addition to acts from Van Halen to Prince and the year’s top R&B, alternative, country, and jazz releases.

“Vol. 3: 1991” — The grunge phenomenon from Nirvana to Pearl Jam, the explosion of rap (Public Enemy, Ice Cube), superstars from Garth Brooks to Paula Abdul to Metallica, and a full complement of one-hit wonders and underground sensations.

“My writing has always been informed by my perspective in the Mountain Time Zone, the shared concert, radio and retail experiences in markets like Salt Lake City as well as Denver,” Brown says. “My curated archive of more than 15,000 rare promotional photos tells a remarkable visual history of seminal periods of music history. A lot of time, creativity and capital was invested by the artists in the creation of these images, and I did not want them lost to time. Via the On Record book series, it’s a privilege and even a responsibility to share them and the artists’ stories with Utah’s music fans and independent music stores such as Sound & Vision Vinyl.”

“We are happy to be hosting G. Brown at Sound & Vision Vinyl,” owner Michael Maccarrone says. “We are a real record store … the way it was meant to be.”

For Immediate Release Love is Understanding: The Life and TImes of Peter Tork and the Monkees

The cover of Love Is Understanding: The Life and Times of Peter Tork

Peter Tork of the Monkees finally gets his own biography.

NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2022 / — When struggling folk musician Peter Tork (born Peter Thorkelson) won an audition to become a cast member of a television sitcom about a rock and roll group, The Monkees, it proved to be a mixed blessing. On the one hand, the television show was not only a big hit in the 1966-67 and 1967-68 seasons, but the manufactured group the Monkees released genuine records that sold millions and soared the charts. On the other hand, the gifted Tork was subjected to criticism and ridicule from the press because cynics considered the Monkees to be nothing more than a blatant ripoff of the phenomenally popular Beatles and because (initially) the group members were not allowed to play musical instruments on their own records. To make things even worse, Tork played a nitwit on the show. People wrongly assumed he was the same buffoon off the air when in fact he was an intelligent and sensitive human being. And when the show was cancelled and the group broke up, Tork became a pariah in the show business industry.

Now Sergio Farias’s Love and Understanding: The Life and TImes of Peter Tork and The Monkees reveals all the highs and lows of the whole story. This brand new book enlightens readers not only on the authentic talents of Peter Tork- both as a musician and as an actor- but also the significant role his group the Monkees played in pop music and in television comedy. It is an amazing tale of an individual who underwent personal and professional tribulations but who ultimately endured and is still remembered and cherished in popular culture today. And this book should be cherished by anyone who gets the opportunity to buy and read it. It is now available in paperback at and in hardback at

Hope Alaska

Book signing event

Erica Miller, book cover artist


Artfully exciting and compulsively readable”

— Book Viral review

HOPE , ALASKA, USA, July 30, 2022 / — In 2019, Neil Perry Gordon visited Hope, Alaska, a small town hugging Turnagain Arm on the Kenai Peninsula. This was not the novelists first time to this former gold mining site, but was to become a significant one.

It was during a two-week vacation, visiting close friends when inspiration created a story. The tale was told by Jeannine Jabaay, owner of the fabulous Hope City restaurant—The Dirty Skillet. During their conversation over delicious wine and great food, Jeannine shared the history of Hope and how it got its name.

What she knew for sure:
“Even before the Yukon, Hope is the original place that gold was discovered in the north. More than 8,000 folks came to Hope with the dream of finding their fortune in the Six Mile and Resurrection Creeks. Hotels, social halls, banks, restaurants and brothels quickly dotted the small community, with new arrivals coming daily by boat, foot and wagon. But there was no town name. Some township leaders decided that the place would be named after next person off the boat. When Percy Hope stepped foot off the boat, he had no idea that he was about to leave his legacy. Hope, Alaska is named after a young man who wanted to stake his fortune in Alaska. Little else is known about Percy Hope. His name seems to practically disappear from the history books.”

What she wasn’t sure of, but shared as fact anyways:
“After landing in town, Percy Hope tried his luck for many months in the waters of the Resurrection Creek and Six Mile Creek. Although he managed to pan a few gold flakes, he never did strike it rich. He did, however, gather enough gold to purchase an old dirty skillet. With that skillet, Percy Hope made his name by providing hearty, heaping, home-style cooked foods for the other prospectors and their families. Percy Hope’s legacy lives on here at Dirty Skillet.”

Before Jeannine could finish, an idea for a novel was born and less than a year later, Hope City – The Alaskan Adventures of Percy Hope was published. Curious to know more of Percy’s fabulous adventures, Neil wrote Cape Nome as its sequel, and just this year he completed the story of this young man’s journey by publishing Denali, the final book in the Goldfield Trilogy.

With three books in hand, Neil Perry Gordon returned to Hope, the source of his inspiration, to promote the trilogy with a book signing at the Dirty Skillet. Attending the signing was the book cover artist for all three novels—Erica Miller. Erica’s artwork provided just the right tone, offering readers a glimpse to the story within the Goldfield Trilogy.
