    New York: 1965. Mass market paperback original, Paperback Library 54-700. pp 283, (5, ads). Minute rubbing to spine ends, else a fine, crisp copy, no names or creases, orange page edges bright. A novel about the madam of a brothel, his first book. Author was songwriter / composer Joseph Perkins Greene (Joe Greene, 1915-86). "Songwriter ("Across the Alley from the Alamo," "And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine"), composer, author, producer and conductor, educated in high school and in private music study. He was a singer over KFRC in San Francisco, and later produced records for RCA Victor, Liberty and Vee Jay. His credits include conducting, scoring and writing work for television and films. Joining ASCAP in 1946, his other popular-song compositions include "Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Cryin’," "All About Ronnie," "Make Me a Present of You," "Soothe Me," "A Ting A Ling," "Chicken Road," "Softly," "Dusky January," "Let Your Love Walk In," "Tender Touch," and "Annabelle." - IMDb. "Orphaned at 14, Greene [said he] 'earned all the education I got.' One of the ways he earned it was to peel 100 pounds of potatoes every morning before going to school. Greene displayed musical talent early, sang and played in local bands, then drifted south to San Francisco to become a radio singer. 'I made band arrangements in bed and sold them to orchestras,' Greene said. 'My biggest break came when Stan Kenton recorded one of my songs, ‘And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine.’ Following that I had ‘Across the Alley from the Alamo,’ which sold 4 million records by Kenton, the Mills Brothers, Woody Herman, and others'. Greene established himself as a song writer, record producer, and composer of musical scores.This prompted Paperback Library to commission the Superspade series, which are by-lined 'B.B. Johnson'--'in case I get tired of writing the books and they hire someone else.' - Bob Thomas in the Toledo Blade. There is a Wikipedia article where one learns that as a young man he was associated with Hoagy Carmichael, is said to have discovered Ernie Andrews, wrote for Nat King Cole, and collaborated with Pete Rugolo. His songs were recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, Carmen McRae, Julie London, Fats Waller, Ray Charles, Dinah Washington, Billy Preston, Jackie DeShannon, and Paul McCartney. There was a second printing in 1968; this first printing is much more uncommon. Note: lighter parcel, any default postage rate may be reduced.
