When a white man from a prominent local family in Woodstock was murdered in 1905, authorities quickly identified a local African American man as the prime suspect. Amid racist animus in the press, he fled across two counties before being apprehended by a vigilante and charged. Local reformer and politician Augustus H. Van Buren stood up to community pressure and defended the accused pro bono. It took three years and multiple trials to overcome racial inequalities in the justice system. Local historian Richard Heppner documents the crime, arrest and trials that revealed racial tensions in upstate New York at the turn of the century.

"Lights, Camera, Soundtrack surveys over 50 years of rock 'n' roll movies, musicals and performance films. It identifies the top guns involved in each film, provides a storyline, rates the film and reviews its soundtrack." "From pop and rock musicals, like the classic Elvis Presley vehicle Jailhouse Rock and the recent Tenacious D showpiece The Pick of Destiny, to performance films like Woodstock and Dig!, and the bootylicious films of the Blaxpoitation genre, all manner of rock and popular music films are here." "It also includes the films whose soundtracks made a massive impact on their success, such as Trainspotting, Reservoir Dogs, and The Crow." "And a section is dedicated to the rock and pop luminaries who have written film scores, such as Peter Gabriel, Nick Cave, and Ry Cooder."--BOOK JACKET.
