Re: Gary Giddins - Volume Two

It's taken decades for the 2nd volume to finally be just announced (it's still not a reality) how many decades will it take for a Volume 3?   I thought the original idea for this book was that there was going to be just 2 parts, the second being what we've waited eons for.  I didn't hear that it is now being EVENTUALLY turned into a 3 volume set.   I think at this point Giddins would be better off to just stick to the original idea and make the final concluding edition be a Part 2 book.   I don't think either Giddins or we will live long enough to see a volume 3.

Re: Gary Giddins - Volume Two

I could not be more excited for this book! What amazing and rich years to be covered. I hope Mr. Giddins writes extensively about Joan Caulfield, his great friendship with Phil Harris, the amazing box office as well as recording performance especially in 1944 when I believe he had something like 2/3 of the time spent at 1# on the charts, along with his tireless efforts for the GI's. I hope this comes out sooner than the Fall but after over a decade and a half of waiting I guess I can go a few more months.

Re: Gary Giddins - Volume Two

I am sure that we are all looking forward to the second volume. 

We must all do our best to persuade Mr Giddins - and his publishers - to also bring forward the third volume as rapidly as possible by demonstrating our support through purchasing Vol. 2 in adequate numbers.

I'll be pre-ordering mine as soon as I get a date for publication (which I hope is soon)! I'm re-reading Volume 1 for the upteenth time!
