✨✧ Marty BaumannToybox Time Machine – A Catalog Of The Coolest Toys Never Made (hardcover) ... Book
IDW Publishing, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 29.99
A beautiful book of graphic imagination – a book that features 60s-styled ads for toys that never existed – but which take us back to the glory days of Matchbox, Big Daddy Roth, and Aurora Monster Models! The artwork is all by Marty Bauman – who would have made a heck of a toy designer back in the day – as he thrills us with full color creations like the Creepy Clutching Hand, Gorilla Rifle, Savage Cedric, Psychedelic Simians, Misterlectro, Robot Troooper, Super-Python 300, Battling Robot, Rick Mason Undercover Triple Agent, The Mighty Zorok, and lots lots more! Each fake toy gets a full color page – like an ad from the back cover of a vintage comic or kids magazine – and the creations are so cool, we really have trouble believing they never really existed! Over 160 pages, hardcover, and full color throughout. Book

Chuck EddyTerminated For Reasons Of Taste – Other Ways To Hear Essential & Inessential Music ... Book
Duke University Press, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99 26.59
A collection of essays on a great range of musical topics from Chuck Eddy – a writer whose work you might know from Creem or The Village Voice – and who covered a surprising amount of music in his decades in publication! The book brings together columns from a four decade stretch that begins in the late 70s – as Eddy pens tight, short pieces on subjects that include the Beastie Boys, Aerosmith, TLC, Public Enemy, country Music, The Urinals, Kanye West, Mayer Hawthorne, Pet Shop Boys, John Hiatt, Motorhead, The Cure, Voivod, and many others – plus side trips on various formats, styles, and subcultures too. 326 pages, softcover, and with dozens of entries!

Edward McClellandFolktales & Legends Of The Middle West ... Book
Belt Publishing, 2018. New Copy ... $4.99 20.00
Dark tales from the Midwest – mostly 18th and 19th stories from a variety of sources – including sailor shanties, slave spirituals, and the folklore of Native Americans – all presented here in a relatively easy to read format, with a few illustrations. Our favorite story, though, is that of Resurrection Mary – the creepy ghost who used to hitchhike by a cemetery on Archer Avenue! Book

✨✧ Meredith OchsAretha – The Queen Of Soul – A Life In Photographs (hardcover) ... Book
Sterling, 2018. New Copy ... $6.99 24.95
Fantastic photographs of the Queen Of Soul – images that start from her early years in Detroit, then move to her rise to fame on Atlantic Records in the 60s – and continue with images that follow Aretha well into her later years too! The book mixes together color and black and white, famous and obscure – and often includes images that are a great sidebar to some better-known photos of Franklin – all supported by text from author Meredith Ochs. This is hardly a comprehensive look at Aretha Franklin, but the photos are more than enough – great shots of Aretha on stage, in the studio, on the TV screen, and just kicking back on her own – 138 pages, hardcover, with images throughout.

✨✧ Ericka Blount DanoisLove Peace & Soul – Behind The Scenes Of America's Favorite Dance Show – Soul Train Classic Moments ... Book
Back Beat, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soul music TV shows ever (and one that originated in Chicago, too!) – presented here in deep detail with loads of interesting stories and anecdotes too! The book's almost a more personal history of the show than a technical one – but that's OK with us, because it really gets at the tales behind those iconic images on the screen – and the all-pro presentation of Don Cornelius too. And, in addition to the main body of the book, the publication also includes this massive show-by-show list of appearances – for 37 seasons of Soul Train, including the later rerun years – with details on the performers and dates for each show, in a section that's over 50 pages in length! The book also includes some nice color images in the middle, and is 243 pages, softcover. Book

✨✧ Graham MarshMichael Caine – 1960s (hardcover) ... Book
Reel Art, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Michael Caine in the 60s – probably his greatest decade on film (although to us, they're all pretty great) – a period that gave us classic Caine moments in movies that include Alfie, Ipcress File, The Italian Job, and Billion Dollar Brain! Those films, and others, are each laid out here in chapters that are heavy on big, beautiful images – shots of Caine both onscreen, and during production – bracketed with other candid images, early work, and the young Michael out and about in London! Many of the images are in black and white, but some are in color – and the hardcover book is 126 pages in length, with nearly every page as gorgeous as the cover. Book
