DJ Shadow & Cut ChemistRenegades Of Rhythm – DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist Play Afrika Bambaataa (tour book) ... Book
Boo Hooray, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 39.98
A sweet little tour book commemorating DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist's Renegades Of Rhythm tour – and one that features a wealth of rare images from the early days of hip hop – of old gig flyers, records, drawings, acetates, and more! The most incredible fact about the tour itself, is that Shadow and Chemist don't just spin records that Bambaataa himself spun back in the day, but they're literally spinning Bambaataa's own record collection – having been granted access by the man himself. As part of that, the book is a document of the record collection, and other items in Bam's archives – very much a document of old school hip hop – with text by DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, and Afrika Bambaataa. The book is 78 pages – done in kind of a DIY style that makes it all the more appealing – with a beautiful hand silk-screened cover with by Paul Insect, and featuring full color scans of many of the actual records. The overall aesthetic is somewhere in the Wax Poetics mode, although maybe a bit less slick – and some of the drawings remind us of work by Mingering Mike. Book

Manabu YuasaSun Ra Disc Guide ... Book
Ele-King (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $23.99
A Japanese book on the music of Sun Ra – one that takes the form of a long essay in Japanese text, but which also features images of many recordings too! The book's less of a discography than other "disc guide" books from Japan – and is critical writing on Ra's recordings with the Arkestra, in Japanese, with sections on Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia periods of the group – accompanied by dozens of black and white reproductions of record covers. The text takes up most of the boo, but the whole thing's a lovely relic if you dig Sun Ra as much as we do – and the back includes a discography of Arkestra recordings, mostly in English. Book

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 ... $10.99 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.

Luca BeatriceNothing Is Real – When The Beatles Met The East/Quando I Beatles Incontrarono L'Oriente ... Book
Silvana Editoriale (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $13.99 35.00
A very cool book on the influence of Eastern spirituality on pop culture at the end of the 60s – one that not only looks at the way The Beatles discovered Indian music and religion, but also the way that moment exploded in so many other directions too! The presentation is great – full color pages that feature a lavish array of album covers, posters, and other artwork – alongside essays that are printed in both English and Italian, with titles that include "From Abbey Road To Himalaya", "Orient", "For A Few Sitars More", and "Journey Between The Milky Way & The Silk Road" – which will give you some idea of the way in which the book explores the influence of the East on the psychedelic and spiritual underground of the late 60s. Very nicely printed – 175 pages, softcover, and full color. Book

Mark BlakePretend You're In A War – The Who & The Sixties ... Book
Aurum (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
A deep look at the relationship between The Who and the sixties scene in the UK – a milieu that certainly shaped and birthed the group, before they rose to new heights by the end of the decade and became a force completely unto themselves! The tale of the band's early days looks at their working class roots, the mod scene, and other seminal forces at play – often through the Who's own eyes, but with maybe a wider cultural sensibility that gets past the stardom and antics of the young legends. The title, by the way, is a quote from Pete Townshend – who said that it was the way that he'd prepare for one of the band's fierce, stage-wrecking performances! Book is 390 pages, softcover, with some black and white images. Book

William S BurroughsNaked Lunch ... Book
Harper Perennial (UK), 1959. New Copy ... $5.99 18.99
The book that forever put William S Burroughs in the literary map – a mad mix of pulp prose, science fiction, and modernist writing technique – and still maybe one of the greatest books that the man ever gave us! The story is as fast-moving as it is modern – kind of an Alphaville of the printed page, filled with wit and imagination – and a dissection of the pulp generation by an author who once labored in its trenches, finally finding his voice here. This expanded edition includes the core original novel, but then includes lots of outtakes pulled from Burroughs' notes, as well as additional introductions by the author, and a new introduction by JG Ballard. 289 pages, softcover.

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.

John CapouyaFlorida Soul – From Ray Charles To KC & The Sunshine Band (hardcover) ... Book
University Of Florida Press, 2017. New Copy ... $18.99 24.95
A long-overdue look at the soul scene in Florida – 60s and 70s music from the Sunshine State that sometimes never gets the proper placement as sounds from northern locales like Philly or Detroit – but which was every bit as important over the years! Author John Capouya does a really great job here – as the book is huge, and filled with information that Capouya pulled together from interviews with a number of key singers and musicians – then layered with a lot more historical detail that really illuminates the different local scenes in Florida, as does the wealth of great photos in the book as well – images not just of soul singers, but also clubs, streets, and even record companies too. Chapters focus on key artists – James & Bobby Purify, Ray Charles, Sam & Dave, Jackie Moore, Latimore, Timmy Thomas, and others – but there's also plenty more in between their stories, in a way that really gets at the nature of the changes over the years, and the unique musical culture that was brewing up down south. 396 pages, hardcover, with lots of great black and white photos, and very detailed notes as well.

PS Artbooks (UK), 1952/1953. New Copy Book ... $9.99 47.99
One of the amazing horror comics published by Harvey Comics in the pre-code years of the early 50s – and a publication that was noted for its wealth of creepy stories and equally chilling images! Harvey may have been the home to Casper the ghost, but on the horror tip they were something else entirely – publisher of some of the most gruesome material in the years before comics got cleaned up in the mid 50s – with some of the best artists as well! Some of these stories are a clear attempt to copy the more famous style of EC Comics, but the Chamber Of Chills material also has a charm that's all its own – a rough approach to stories, which often leads to wonderfully lurid artwork – handled in this volume by Rudy Palais, Lee Elias, Rocke Mastroserio, Bob Powell, Don Perlin, Al Avison, Howard Nostrand, Jack Abel, and others – in stories that include "The Spider Man", "Vengeful Corpse", "Nightmare Of Doom", "The Living Mummies", "Black Passion", "Terrorvision", and more. 256 pages, full color, and hardcover.

Fantagraphics, 2010. New Copy ... $2.99 19.99
A contemporary book, but one that's got a wonderfully vintage feel – just the sort of right artwork to fit this coming-of-age story set in the New York of the 40s! George Chieffet provides the text, and Stephen DeStefano provides the wonderful illustrations – with penwork that takes us back to the sharp style of the best mid-century newspaper cartoonists – but presented with a modern sense of layout that makes the story even more exciting! The mix of modern and retro reminds us a bit of the work of Seth – although Chieffet's writing and tale are very different – and the whole thing's packaged together in a really beautiful way. Hardcover, and printed on beautiful aged-style pages! Book

✨✧ Melissa Chiu/Michelle YunNam June Paik – Becoming Robot (hardcover) ... Book
Yale University Press, 2014. New Copy ... $22.99 65.00
A heady look at the life and work of Nam June Paik – the man who virtually invented video art at the end of the 60s, and went on to work in a range of other amazing media too! The core of the book features images from a large retrospective of Paik's career – stills from videos, drawings, sculptures, robots, and a range of other unusual items – plus photographs of so many of those important "moments" that graced Paik's career – those creative outbursts that could never be hung on a living room wall, nor resold over the years. There's some great shots of famous collaborations with cellist Charlotte Moorman – plus lots more we'd never seen too. The book also features essays on Paik by Bill Viola, Yoko Ono, and others – plus a few other writings on his work – and even a section of his own words too. Harcover, full color, and 190 pages. Book

John CorbettVinyl Freak – Love Letters To A Dying Medium ... Book
Duke University Press, 2017. New Copy ... $18.99 24.95
An incredible look at the format of vinyl – put together by a guy who's got one of the hippest record collections we've ever seen! John Corbett's been writing about music, art, and other formats for decades – but his real labor of love is vinyl records – a format he continued to embrace even at the height of the CD era – so much so that he talked Downbeat magazine into letting him write a special column on musical delights that had never made it to the digital format! Corbett helped plenty of music get reissued on CD himself – thanks to countless label projects – but he also always held a special place in his heart for the kinds of records that never got reissued – and those are the sorts of titles featured here – a massive run of music that runs from jazz to funk, American and European, totally obscure to completely common – presented beautifully together in this massive book! The volume doesn't just bring together Corbett's columns, but also offers up full color reproductions of all the record covers, along with a few other details too – to support efforts on dozens of artists – a huge list that includes Melvin Jackson, Bill Leslie, Black Grass, Night Blooming Jazzmen, Phil Seamen, Khan Jamal, Klaus Doldinger, The Mad-Hatters, Tommy Jones, Guy Warren, The Three Souls, United Front, Johnny Lytle, London Experimental Jazz Quartet, Paul Smoker, AK Salim, Noah Howard, Jack Wilson, and many others – a good number of whom have yet to be reissued. The book is wonderful – and Corbett's longtime declaration of being a vinyl freak is more important than ever, given the rebirth of the medium! Book is 250 pages, softcover, with color images.
