The rationale for this invaluable publication is simple: it is satisfying to assist families in making independent decisions when caring for themselves, elderly relatives or sick infants. No one wants the inconvenience or worry of waiting to see the doctor if they do not need to. Making decisions for oneself is a wonderful, empowering feeling, and this little book can safely guide at a time when parents are anxious about a new infant or are faced with a sick child or elderly relative. Parents can, and should, trust their instincts about their own children and will find here the support they need. There is practical advice for the new mother struggling with her body's adjustments to childbirth, and for both parents, worried and exhausted, pacing with a crying baby in the wee hours of the morning, there is the answer to the common question, Is it safe to wait?
Sam Phillips didn't record anybody else the way he recorded Jerry Lee Lewis. With other artists, he pushed and prodded, taking his time to discover the qualities that made them uniquely human, but with Jerry Lee, he just turned the tape on and let the Killer rip. There was no need to sculpt because Lewis arrived at Sun Studios fully formed, ready to lean back and play anything that crossed his mind. Over the course of seven years, that's more or less how things were run at Sun: Lewis would sit at the piano and play, singing songs that were brought to him and songs that crossed his mind, and Sam never stopped rolling the tape.
