David StubbsLabels Unlimited – Ace Records ... Book
Black Dog (UK), 2007. New Copy Book ... $6.99 29.95
An in-depth look at a label that should be familiar to all Dusty Groove customers – given the decades-old reputation Ace Records has for reissuing classic funk and soul! The imprint really gets its day in the sun here – in a lavish oversized book that's filled with color images – not just of artists on the label, but of its own releases and historical moments as well. The 190 page book almost feels like one of Ace's own CD booklets – well-written with plenty of historical details, and supported by a vast amount of graphic elements as exciting as the music itself. There's loads of shots of the pre-label years of Ace, too – info on their work as a shop and market stall record dealer – with other great info on the London scene as well. Book is filled with color and black and white images – a great read throughout! Book

✨✧ Bernd JonkmannsRecord Stores – Tribute to Record Stores – 400 Pages, 190 Stores, 36 Countries, 5 Continents ... Book
Seltmann+Soehne, 2016. New Copy ... 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
