Item description for Vinyl Highway: Singing as "Dick and Dee Dee" by Dee Dee Phelps...

A rollicking tour across the early- and mid-1960s, this memoir chronicles the life of Mary Sperling as she transforms from a shy, 18-year-old college student into part of the singing/songwriting phenomenon Dick and Dee Dee—one of the most popular recording duos of the era. But with success comes increasingly rigorous touring, pressure to adapt to the changing music scene, and growing tensions between Dick and herself. Through never-before-told tales—of Dick Clark, the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, Tina Turner, and other 60s recording artists—Dee Dee reveals her life on the road, her gig as a semi-regular on the ABC show Shindig, and the unpredictable demands of her singing partner. The warm, first-person account exposes the highs and lows of her metamorphosis, illuminates the dark side of fame, and offers hope and light for the future.

Reviews - What do customers think about Vinyl Highway: Singing as "Dick and Dee Dee"?

Loved it!  Jan 14, 2008
Having spent my teen years in the late 50s/early 60s and being a big fan of the music from that era I definitely could relate to Dee Dee Phelps story. But truthfully, with the exception of the song "Turn Around", I never got particularly excited about Dick & Dee Dee's catalog of music and I picked up this book imagining that it would be a relatively lightweight piece of fluff. Very quickly I found out that Dee Dee was pulling no punches in describing both the light and the dark side of the 60's music industry and her partner Dick St. John (who comes across as somewhat of an obnoxious egotist). Her accounts of recording sessions and adventures while touring the country by bus with other music notables make for great reading. Highly recommended!
Vinyl Highways - One wonderful read!  Nov 9, 2007
Dee Dee Phelps did a wonderful job on this book and capturing her adventures as a teenager thrusted in the music industry and the ups and downs of touring the world. Great stories thruout the book -- if you love 60's Rock and Roll -- This is a must read! Thank you Dee Dee for telling this wonderful part of Rock and Roll History!
A treat for anyone who remembers the sounds of the 60's fondly.  Aug 6, 2007
Vinyl Highway: A Memoir is the true-life story of singer Dee Dee Phelps. Packed with stories that tell both the bright and dark sides of fame, Vinyl Highway relates the experiences of performing with such legends as Dick Clark, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, and other memorable recording artists of the 60s; Dee Dee's role in creating five Billboard gold records; and her routine as a semi-regular on the ABC show "Shindig". An up-close and personal reminiscence of the thick of the 60's music scene, and a treat for anyone who remembers the sounds of the 60's fondly.
She's one of us... only she rubbed shoulders with Dick Clark  Dec 8, 2006
I like this book 'cause I could easily relate to it.... kinda'. Dee Dee is just like me... she is one of us -- a every-day kid growing up in the 50s and 60s. That was me... riding in the car, listening to the music. I could imagine the DJ playing my song. Only Dee Dee din't just imagine it. She did it. It was the beginning of a decade-long ride on the roller coaster of rock and roll. Dick Clark, Quincy Jones, the Beach Boys, Glenn Campbell, Dionne Warwick, Bobby Vinton... Dick and Dee Dee rubbed shoulders with all of them. There were good times and there were bad times. This is her "behind the scenes" story. It's pretty cool.
