A look at the Iron Range roots of the art of Dylan! Bob Dylan is one the most fascinating singer songwriters in American history, whose life has been chronicled by hundreds of authors and the man himself – but David Pichaske's Song Of The North Country takes a refreshingly different approach, focusing on the regional influence on the most influential musical figures of our time – exploring how the upper midwest Minnesota upbringing plays into his art. Well worth a read! Paperback, 360 pages. Book

Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis/Amii Stewart —
Killerfish ... CD Quartet (Spain), 1979. New Copy ...
Long before Sharknado hit the small screen, the team of Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis served up the groovy score for Killerfish – a great aquatic thriller from the later years of disco, given a very groove-heavy score by the Italian brothers! The leadoff track – "The Winner Takes All" – features English language vocals by disco diva Amii Stewart, who returns on another track as well – and these lyrical moments set a framework for the vivid instrumental numbers, which often have a style that's a bit more laidback in the groove department, but which still uses disco elements like guitar and keyboards mixed with a bit of strings. Titles include "Run Away Man", "Killer Fish", "Margaux", "Flying Into Love", "Welcome To Brasil", "Diamonds", and "Don't Ever Let Me Hear You Say Goodbye". CD
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS and those raw beats and absolute prime end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect framework for KRS's clear, consise and tough rhymes. It's also the blueprint for some of the best, tough and street aware hip hop to come. Includes "Jack Of Spades", "The Blueprint", "You Must Learn", "Who Protects Us From You?", "Why Is That?", "Breath Control", and "Bo! Bo! Bo!". CD
