✨✧ Naomi Beckwith & Dieter RoelstraeteFreedom Principle – Experiments In Art & Music 1965 to Now ... Book
Museum Of Contemporary Art, 2015. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful book from the Museum Of Contemporary Art in Chicago – done in collaboration with a great exhibit on the AACM and AfriCobra arts movements of the 60s! The former is very well-known to Dusty Groove customers – the musical movement that gave focus to the ideas and energies of jazz musicians Roscoe Mitchell, Muhal Richard Abrams, Anthony Braxton, George Lewis, Nicole Mitchell, The Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Douglas Ewart, and so many important Chicago talents of the past 50s years. AfriCOBRA was a visual movement, and equally important – and often worked alongside the AACM with similar empowerment and consciousness-raising ideals – presented here in a stunning range of works that include paintings, murals, prints, sculptures, installations, and other striking forms – by artists who include KeRa Upra, Mitchell Caton, Wadsworth Jarrell, Yaounde Olu, Jose Williams, and others – brought together here in a range of beautiful images. The book features way more than the exhibit – including images of older artifacts, such as posters – and essays by curators Naomi Beckwith and Dieter Roelstraete – as well as George Lewis, Rebecca Zorach, and a collective conversation with Tomeka Reid, Hamza Walker, and Romi Crawford. Other great bits include a chronology of creative activity – and a topography of the movements, mapped over Chicago with photos of key locations. 263 pages, softcover, in full color. Book

✨✧ Bernd JonkmannsRecord Stores – Tribute to Record Stores – 400 Pages, 190 Stores, 36 Countries, 5 Continents ... Book
Seltmann+Soehne, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Call us biased, but we think this is one hell of an amazing book – a beautiful journey through dozens of record stores around the world – served up in these amazing color photographs that get to the core of what makes a great record store so unique! Bernd Jonkmanns really did a great job – and the book is filled with images that are every bit as beautiful as the one on the cover – photographs that not just focus on the treasures inside the stores, but capture the unique spaces, and the way the music is presented – as each individual store is completely different, and has their own take on the way they put forward their records and other objects. The book is huge, and is completely essential to anyone who's ever loved being in or around record stores – as Bernd really captures the way the stores can immediately excite a true record shopper, and his pictures already have us chomping at the bit to do more record shopping outside of Dusty Groove! Plus, the whole thing's a much-needed document of a vanishing art form – as there's more than a few shops here that have closed since Jonkmann's began the project – some he's noted, some that have closed after publication of the book. The whole thing's super-heavy and oversized – almost 400 pages, full color, and completely worth the high price tag. Heck, we love the whole thing to death – even though they completely forgot to include us! Book

✨✧ Tim BurgessTim Book Two – Vinyl Adventures From Istanbul To San Francisco ... Book
Faber & Faber, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Here's the kind of travel book we can really get behind – the story of a guy out looking for records – hitting some of the coolest vinyl shops around the globe, and learning a heck of a lot about music in the process! Tim Burgess is best known as a member of The Charlatans – but he's also one heck of a record collector – and his story here tells the tale of albums he discovers, and albums that he's recommended – by a host of compelling figures who include Paul Weller, Ian McCulloch, Irmin Schmidt, Boy George, Andrew Weatherall, Chris Carter, Johnny Marr, and many other musical contemporaries who mention certain releases to Tim, then set him on the track of discovery. Along the way, he stops at some of the greatest record stores in the world – including Dusty Groove (!) – and the book is a beautiful portrait of the way we learn about music and keep on pushing our boundaries. 257 pages, softcover.

✨✧ Michael Karl WitzelBarbecue Road Trip – Recipes, Restaurants, & Pitmasters From America's Great Barbecue Regions (hardbound) ... Book
Crestline, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Back in the day, we loved nothing better than to roam around the country – looking for BBQ stands and buying records – a travel legacy that first helped lay the ground for Dusty Groove! And although we did OK back on those trips, we would have done a lot better if we had this book to work with – a great listing of important barbecue joints from four important scenes – Texas, Memphis, North Carolina, and Kansas City – complete with a huge amount of color photos and recipes too! The book's a lavish look at these glorious temples of meat – with full color shots of the restaurants, their offerings, and other dishes too – all matched with text that really gets at the special styles of each scene and the skills of their pitmasters too. Very nicely done – not one of those schlocky BBQ books – 192 pages, oversize, hardcover, and full color throughout! Book
