About 3500 items.

Arrangement: Note that Guralnick's original folder titles follow the "Drafts," "Production," and "Research" designations assigned by the archivist.

Published 2005. Drafts, production, and research materials relating to "Dream Boogie: The Triumph of Sam Cooke". Drafts include photocopies of handwritten notes, chapter outlines, and edited manuscripts. Production files contain page proofs, cover art, and an edited index. Research files consist of photocopies of archival materials and handwritten notes by Guralnick of his archival research of the life and career of Sam Cooke. Collected archival materials include correspondence, financial and legal records, contracts, royalty statements, performance programs, recording session data, and other materials related to Cooke's career.

There is also a significant amount of photocopied articles and clippings from African American newspapers and magazines, including the Atlanta Daily World, the Baltimore Afro-American, the Chicago Defender, Ebony, Jet, the New Jersey Afro-American, New York Amsterdam News, Richmond Afro-American, and the Sepia, among others. Also includes clippings from music and popular culture publications such as Billboard, Cash Box, Down Beat, and Variety, among others. Clippings relate primarily to Sam Cooke and other musicians; gospel, soul, and pop music; to the rise of African American musicians in the music industry; and to racial integration and the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s. Most clippings are dated circa 1950-1965, but also include isolated materials for the 1980s and 1990s regarding Sam Cooke tributes and memorials.

Research files include numerous transcribed interviews, chiefly conducted circa 1994-2003 by Peter Guralnick with friends, family, and colleagues of Sam Cooke. Interviewees include Lou Adler, J. W. Alexander, L.C. Cooke, Allen Klein, Jess Rand, Arthur "Art" Rupe, Lloyd Price, Rip Spencer, Billy Vera, Bobby Womack, Carol Woods (wife of J. W. Alexander), among others.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 3.1. Elvis Presley Interviews and Research, 1950s-1996 (bulk 1988-1991).

About 2,200 items.

Arrangement: Creator's original file order has been retained. Note that Guralnick's original folder titles follow the "Interviews" and "Research" designations assigned by the archivist.

Interview files include transcribed interviews conducted by Peter Guralnick and others about Elvis Presley, including Ernst Jorgensen and Jerry Hopkins, as well as other journalists and unnamed interviewers. Interviews by Guralnick are dated circa 1981-1996 (bulk 1988-1991). Interviews by others are dated 1950s-1996. There are a significant number of interviews with Scotty Moore, Sam Phillips, and Jerry Schilling. Also included is a file of transcribed recordings of interviews, performances, press conferences, and other public appearances by Elvis Presley, originally dated 1956-1974, collected by Guralnick. Transcribed interviews, phone conversations, and some transcribed dictations of notes by Peter Guralnick are also included.

Note that Peter Guralnick's original file order has been preserved: interviews are listed in loose alphabetical order by interviewee's last name. Files titled "Original interviews" appear to be duplicated throughout the series. Files titled "Elvis interviews" were conducted by Peter Guralnick and others including Jerry Hopkins and Ernst Jorgenson from 1990 to 1996.

Research files include photocopied correspondence, contracts, clippings, and printed materials collected by Peter Guralnick, as well as research notes written by him and others. Copied materials come from the papers of film producer Hal Wallis, from the archives of Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc., from the personal papers of Presley's manager Colonel Tom Parker, and from the research files of Elvis Presley biographer Jerry Hopkins, the author of Elvis: The Biography (2007). Materials from Colonel Tom Parker's papers primarily concern business activities, and include contracts and other materials relating to Parker and RCA Records. Jerry Hopkins materials relate to Elvis Presley's work in films, his wife Priscilla Presley, and his manager Colonel Tom Parker. Research files, 1971-1977, consist chiefly of clippings, press releases, and other printed material that appear to be from Jerry Hopkins' research files.
