Everyone knows the hits-Hanky Panky, Mony Mony, I Think Were Alone Now, Crimson and Clover, Crystal Blue Persuasion.MoreEveryone knows the hits-Hanky Panky, Mony Mony, I Think Were Alone Now, Crimson and Clover, Crystal Blue Persuasion. They are nuggets of rock and pop history. However, few know the unlikely story of how these hits came to be..Tommy James was discovered in 1966 at the age of nineteen, and was pursued by every record mogul in New York until, inexplicably, every offer but one quickly disappeared.

James soon found himself in the office of Morris Levy at Roulette Records, where he was handed a pen and ominously promised one helluva ride. Morris Levy, the legendary godfather of the music business, needed some hits and Tommy would provide them..Me, the Mob, and the Music tells the intimate story of the relationship between the bright-eyed, sweet-faced blonde musician from the heartland and the big, bombastic, brutal bully from the Bronx, who hustled, cheated, and swindled his way to the top of the music industry.

It is also the story of this swaggering, wildly creative era of rock n roll when payola and the strong arm tactics of the mob were the norm, and the hits kept coming..
