Bernd JonkmannsRecord Stores – Tribute to Record Stores – 400 Pages, 190 Stores, 36 Countries, 5 Continents ... Book
Seltmann+Soehne, 2016. New Copy ... $46.99 59.00
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

Michael Karl WitzelBarbecue Road Trip – Recipes, Restaurants, & Pitmasters From America's Great Barbecue Regions (hardbound) ... Book
Crestline, 2012. New Copy ... $6.99 30.00
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

✨✧ David StubbsLabels Unlimited – Ace Records ... Book
Black Dog (UK), 2007. New Copy Book ... Out Of Stock
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
