Fred AndersonAnother Place ... LP
Moers (Germany), 1978. Near Mint- ... $55.99
Nice, nice 70s material by this oft-overlooked AACM member from Chicago, one of the few documents of hismind blowing playing from that era. Anderson's hefty tenor is captured live at the Moers festival of new jazz in a quartet setting with other great Chicago players like the equally underheard Billy Brimfield on trumpet, a young George Lewis on trombone, Brian Smith on bass, and a then young Hank (Hamid) Drake on percussion in what is probably one of his earliest recording dates. The nice, lengthy titles include "Saxoon", "The Bull", and "Another Place". LP, Vinyl record album

Drew Hardin & The Editors Of Hot Rod MagazineHot Rod Magazine – All The Covers (hardcover) ... Book
Motorbooks, 2010. New Copy ... $8.99 35.00
A hefty look at Hot Rod magazine – from the time the publication started in the postwar years, through its big time in the 60s, to its surprisingly durable run up to more recent years too! The book promises all the covers of all the issues through that run – and it definitely delivers that, but adds in way more than just a simple pastiche of cover art – with year-by-year details on the magazine, and a manner of presentation that makes things very lively – through other image, and a focus on some of the ultra-cool images from the classic years. 255 pages, hardcover, and heavy and glossy throughout!

Topher Horn/BlkshrkTopher Horn X Blkshrk...For Todd EP ... 12-inch
Fat Finger Cosmic/Rocksteady Disco, 2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $2.99
A nice little split 12" EP pairing up dancefloor tracks by the Blkshrk duo of Eddie Logic & Blair French for the Fat Finger Cosmic label – and Rocksteady Disco's Topher Horn! The Blkshrk side kicks of with heavy beats and percussion, with just as hefty bass grooves, and a really solid blend of spacey synths and keys. Topher Horn's side is just as solid, working with classic schooled, contempory sounding deep house vibes. Titles include "Swimming For Todd", Ticket Stub", "PD8-15", "Photo For Todd" and "Chopped Rhodes (12" Mix)". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Houghton Mifflin, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 32.00
We're ultra-proud to be Chicagoans – and one of the many things that makes is proud is The Chicago Defender – our city's famous African-American newspaper, easily one of the best and most important in a long legacy of progressive 20th Century publications! This very hefty book tells the full tale of the Defender – offering up hundreds of pages that look not just at the paper's history, but also its role in the segregated black community of Chicago, and its lasting impact – both at a local and national level. The book is extremely well-researched, and written by an author who was also part of the Defender staff in its later years – and the whole thing clocks in at a whopping 633 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images.

Louise SimonsonDC Comics Covergirls (hardcover) ... Book
Chartwell Books, 2007. New Copy ... $18.99 24.99
The world of comics might seem to be a male-dominated one at times – but DC Comics has more than made up for that over the years – by giving us powerful characters like Wonder Woman, Power Girl, Raven, Big Barda, Catwoman, Lois Lane, and many others – all featured here in a stunning full-color book, filled with vintage images from the comic pages! The book's got a bit of history and other context, but reads more like an artbook overall – with loads of lavish reproductions of classic comic covers, plus other inside artwork, some unusual images, and lots more greatness too.

VariousI'm A Freak Baby – A Journey Through The British Heavy Psych & Hard Rock Underground Scene 1968 to 1972 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $21.99
A tremendous overview of the UK hard rock years at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – a time when some of the biggest groups of the coming decade would move to the forefront, while so many others who never got their due still hit an equally great groove! This set's a strong nod to the legion of excellent British acts that never soared to the heights of Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath – but shared a similar ability to push older blues rock and psych modes into much heavier territory – a fiercely dark groove that set the stage for so much music making in decades to come! You're bound to know a few names here, but the set also overflows with lots more work that really illuminates the period – a massive 48 tracks on 3CDs, complete with a hefty booklet of notes that will take you on one mad musical journey. Titles include "My Son's Alive" by Crushed Butter, "All In Your Mind" by Stray, "Bogeyman" by Writing On The Wall, "Love In The Rain" by Edgar Broughton Band, "Jehovah" by The Velvet Frogs, "Flash" by Bare Soul, "Ascension Day" by Third World War, "Trying To Find My Way Back Home" by Morning After, "Yellow Cave Woman" by Velvett Fogg, "Too Old" by Andromeda, "Occult" by The Kult, "Twisted Trip Woman" by Sweet Slag, "Rock My Soul" by Charge, "Cherry Red" by The Groundhogs, "Apocalypse" by Barnabus, "Falling" by The Iron Maiden, and lots lots more!

✨✧ Mark RibowskyDreams To Remember – Otis Redding, Stax Records & The Transformation Of Southern Soul (hardcover) ... Book
Liveright, 2015. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hefty book on the great Otis Redding – one of the best soul singers of all time, even though he left this planet all too soon! Redding's career on record was less than a decade long, but marked by a huge amount of work – not just time in the studio, with the legendary Stax Records – but also countless hours on the road, where Otis honed his talents and perfected his craft – while additionally putting both himself and his talents at risk. Author Mark Ribowsky looks at these years in wonderful depth – mostly with a focus on Redding, but also a strong look at Stax as well – as the partnership between the two was one of the most important in soul music at the time, and continues to have an impact all these many years later. Book is 366 pages, with copious notes at the end – hardcover, and with some black and white images. Book

✨✧ Dave Moore & Jason ThorntonThere's That Beat Guide To The Philly Sound – Philadelphia Soul Music & Its R&B Roots –From Gospel & Bandstand to TSOP (Hardcover) ... Book
There's That Beat/Premium (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible book on the sound of soul in Philadelphia – one that's every bit as visually vivid as the music itself – with page after page of full color label scans, vintage photos, and other rare images! The book was put together by the team who gave us the great Northern Soul magazine There's That Beat a number of years ago – and although the book is heavy, with hundreds of pages, the look and feel here is as wonderful as that previous publication – with really thoughtful layout alongside the text, which keeps things visually popping while you read the history of all the great music within! The book is a record collector's dream – and might well be worth it alone for the hundreds and hundreds of record scans – but the writing is equally great, and traces the history of Philly soul up through gospel, blues, and doo wop – to the huge explosion of sounds in the 60s and 70s. Almost 700 pages, with very heavy paper throughout – and well worth the hefty price tag if you're a fan of Philly soul! Book

✨✧ Paul SteinbeckMessage to Our Folks – The Art Ensemble of Chicago (hardcover) ... Book
University Of Chicago, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at the genius of The Art Ensemble Of Chicago – one of the coolest, most compelling groups to emerge in the great wave of avant jazz in the late 60s – and one who continued to give the world a lifetime legacy of groundbreaking music! There's been plenty written on the group over the years, but author Paul Steinbeck really takes things further – by bringing his own musicological training to play with the performances of the group – expanding our understanding of their sounds with rich interpretation of key moments – balanced out nicely by a fuller history of the group and its individual members – and their importance both on the American and global jazz scenes during the 60s, 70s, and 80s. The book is a very hefty read – 346 pages, with a fair bit of notes and references that show the huge amount of work that the author put into the project. Hardcover, with some black and white images.

✨✧ Paul Maher Jr, edTom Waits On Tom Waits ... Book
Aurum (UK), 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Think of this book as a Tom Waits Reader – but one that presents the spoken Waits instead of the written one – as the editor compiled hundreds of pages from dozens of interviews over the years – presenting Tom's voice in a dizzying array of contexts, interviews done both for publications and broadcast sources! The book is structured alongside Waits' different albums – so that each chapter features an introduction, a few (then) contemporary reviews of the record, and interviews done at the time of the release. Given the decades of music that Tom Waits has given us, the scope of the book is mighty large – over 450 pages, and a pretty hefty read. Book

✨✧ Sheila WellerGirls Like Us – Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon & The Journey Of A Generation ... Book
Washington Square Press, 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The rise of the female singer/songwriter at the end of the 60s – a huge transformation of the role of women in pop music, presented here in a look at Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon – plus some of their contemporaries as well! The music of all three singers has gone onto become timeless – so much so, it's easy to forget the power of the moment when singers like these stepped from the shadows of studio work, girl groups, and overproduced teen pop – and were finally able to get a voice of their own, right at a time when so many other changes in society were taking place. The book's quite hefty – a very detailed 584 pages, softcover, with some black and white images. Book
