New Vernon JoynsonTapestry Of Delights Revisited – The Ultimate Guide To UK Rock & Pop Of The Beat, R&B, Psychedelic, & Progressive Eras (2 volume edition) ... Book
Borderline, 2014. New Copy 2 Volume Hardound Se ... $266.99 299.99
The ultimate version of the most complete reference on psychedelia ever compiled – the legendary Tapestry Of Delights – served up here in an oversized, two volume, hardcover version – limited to only 600 copies in the printing! Together, the books total over 2000 pages, with insanely detailed discographical information that also includes news on reissues or repressings, current values for many records, and lots of images, including many in beautiful color! There's never been a book like this – and the package, although expensive, is well worth it if you're the sort that spends a lot of time and money tracking down super-rare British records – especially since most of them usually run for a lot more than this two volume set. Super-heavy, hardcover, and way more detailed than the previous editions – almost double the content! Book
(Limited to 600 numbered copies.)

Dan LeroyGreatest Music Never Sold – Secrets Of Legendary Lost Albums By David Bowie, Seal, Beastie Boys, Beck, Chicago, Mick Jagger, & More ... Book
Backbeat Books, 2007. New Copy ... $4.99 17.95
Some of the greatest albums in rock and roll are those that were never released – including some that finally saw the light of day after decades, like the Beach Boys' Smile! This book really gets at that fact beautifully – showing how, although never issued, some of these key creative projects really represent the ongoing struggle of rock music in the music business – the push and pull between different forces, and the resulting crash when musical moments never come to be! Each chapter tells the tale of a different album that didn't make it – David Bowie's Toy, Seal's Wonderland, and other projects by The Beastie Boys, Beck, Chicago, Ray Davies, Adam Ant, The Jungle Brothers, and others – almost a musical version of the comic book What If? There's also a final chapter on other almost-rans, including a few that might just make it – and the book has a nice breezy style that's nicely journalistic at times. 319 pages, softcover. Book

McSweeney'sMcSweeneys Issue 27 ... Book
McSweeneys, 2008. New Copy ... $5.99 24.00
One of the coolest issues of McSweeney's to date – a special slipcover that features three different books inside! Our favorite is Autophobia – a sketchbook by Art Spiegelman that's a great change from some of his higher-concept projects – not only a great way to see his talents evolve in action, but also work with a much more free-floating sense of connection – like his earlier underground comix material! A second book is Lots Of Things Like This – which features graphic art from William Steig, Saul Steinberg, Roy Art Lodge, Leonard Cohen, David Mamet, Joe Brainard, Raymond Pettibon, David Shrigley, and many others. And the last book is the main one – with fiction by Ashlee Adams, Liz Mandrell, Mikel Jollett, Stephen King, and Larry Smith. A really great package – and proof again that McSweeney's is one of the most inventive presses around! Book

McSweeneys, 2010. New Copy ... $4.99 20.00
An issue of McSweeney's with a special bonus – a whole book! The issue comes in a plastic slipcover that features the core volume – a thick journal with writings by Tom Barbash, Sean Casey, Daniel Handler, Lawrence Minh Bui Davis, Anthony Doerr, Bridge Clerken, David Means, and others – plus a totally great section of self-portraits by a range of talents who include Sarah Silverman, Michel Gondry, Rashida Jones, Mike Leigh, Jonathan Lethem, Jonathan Ames, and others. In the other side of the slipcover is the book The End Of Major Combat Operations by Nick McDonell – a scathing look at the continuing engagement of American troops in Iraq! Book
