✨✧ Mary Ameri & Torsten SchmidtFor The Record – Conversations With People Who Have Shaped The Way We Listen To Music (hardcover) ... Book
Gestalten (Germany), 2013. New Copy ... $9.99 39.95
A very cool project from the Red Bull Music Academy – a surprisingly strong force in recent years for bringing together a range of different musical strands! The book features pairings of two different artists or musicians – each talking with the other about their music, the process of creation, and a range of different topics too – all on large, full-color pages that present the text in artbook style – which makes the whole thing as much of a visual joy as it is a musical one! Conversations include Bernard Purdie talking with Jaki Liebezeit, Martyn Ware and Nile Rodgers, Joao Barbosa with Mulatu Astatke & Kalaf Angelo, Benny Ill with Moritz Von Oswald, Matais Aguayo with Sly & Robbie, Ben UFO with DJ Harvey, Erykah BAdu with The Underachievers, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Void, and Modeselektor with Mykki Balanco. There's also a range of additional essays, too – penned by some of the above, as well as Patrick Adams, Adrian Sherwood, Lee Scratch Perry, and others – and the book is massive – hardcover, oversize, and a heavy 396 pages.

Katherine A Bussard/Alison Fisher/Greg Foster RiceCity Lost & Found – Capturing New York, Chicago, & Los Angeles – 1960 to 1980 (hardcover) ... Book
Princeton University, 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 50.00
American cities were going through tremendous changes in the 60s and 70s – changes that not only had an impact on local citizens, businesses, and municipal forces – but also on the art community as well! This book showcases a tremendous response to urban upheaval by artists in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles – presenting images of artworks created during the decades, and also photographic documents of performances, demonstrations, and other creative activities – sometimes juxtaposed against mainstream media, and balanced with a huge amount of text by the authors. The range of material in here is tremendous – the Chicago section alone is mindblowing – and the book also features contributions from other writers who include Paula Massood, Josh Glick, Eric Avila, Max Page, Leslie Wilson, and others. The book is 271 pages, with color and black and white images throughout – and was done in collaboration with the Princeton Art museum. Book

Joshua Clegg CafferyTraditional Music In Coastal Louisiana – The 1934 Lomax Recordings (hardcover) ... Book
Louisiana State University, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 45.95
A detailed look at one of the most compelling strands of the legendary field recordings of Alan Lomax – his 1934 foray into the rich musical culture of Southern Louisiana! Although some of the Lomax recordings have been brought out and examined under the spotlight in just about every way possible, these recordings have remained a bit more obscure – and finally get full exposure here – in a detailed volume that moves through each recording one by one, presenting the artist, the setting, the lyrics, and a larger critical examination of the work – almost like some giant book-length presentation of liner notes for the 1934 Louisiana field recordings. Not for the feint of heart, but if you've got interest in the farther reaches of cajun music, you'll find plenty here to love – as the hardcover book is 346 pages, and overflowing with notes and information.

Gary Calamar & Phil GalloRecord Store Days – From Vinyl To Digital & Back Again (paperback) ... Book
Sterling, 2010. New Copy ... $10.99 14.99
Somebody's finally gone out and written a book about one subject we can really get behind – the Record Store – and not only that, they've done a beautiful job with the entire package too! The book takes a look at the importance of the record store – not just historically, but culturally as well – with an especially important focus on the need for stores in the digital age, as a way of keeping both the music, and interest in the music, alive and well for generations to come! As you might guess from the subtitle, authors Calamar and Gallo have a bit of an agenda in their portrait – but they really pave the way with some great recollections of record stores past, incredible bits not just from folks who owned and worked in stores, but also from famous shoppers, artists, and collectors too. And even cooler, the book is filled with lots of great photographs – wonderful images of old stores in color and black and white, plus lots of great sidebar bits that help draw a focus on key issues in record retail. If you, like us, get a bit of a rush every time you walk into a record store, then you'll be sure to get an equal rush from this book – a wonderful tome that's one we can send home to our parents, and finally show them we've got a career worth a bit of respect! 238 pages, hardcover, and really beautifully done.
