A Man More Than Fascinating

Greenfield takes you on an amazing journey through the life of a music business legend. Ertegun discovered Ray Charles, Aretha, CS&N, Led Zep and so many more. You feel as if you are at clubs, concerts, and meetings with so many musical heavies. The stories told are amazing.

Great Story about a great story teller

Where does The Last Sultan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

If Bill Graham was the father of concerts, Ahmet was of the record business. Both were great story tellers who both loved their artists and love the business which they created. I loved every second of this book as well as the book about Mr. Wexler. Together these two bookends did what MOrris Levy never could and more. God bless you Ahmet, Jerry and of course Miriam.
