New Nathan Nedorostek & Anthony PappalardoRadio Silence – A Selected Visual History Of American Hardcore Music ... Book Book
MTV, 2008. New Copy ... $6.99 29.95
The history of American hardcore – served up in a huge batch of black and white photos, record covers, flyers, and more – spun out in a really beautiful book! The images are all nice and stark – concert shots, band performances, and more – all photos that really get at the full spectrum of the hardcore scene, but never in a way that's gimmicky or touristy at all. Some bits are pulled from treasured collections, some are relics from the past – like gig posters or t-shirts – and the book features hefty comments from all the artists and contributors, too. There's even a great photo-discography at the end – and although the book was put together by MTV, it's got a very rich, non-commercial feel. Book

William ParkerCentering – Unreleased Recordings 1976 to 1987 (6CD set) ... CD CD format
No Business (Lithuania), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 6CD ... $74.99
An amazing collection of music from legendary bassist William Parker – 6 CDs' worth of performances, all of them unreleased, packaged together in a limited edition box set with a detailed booklet as well! The scope of the sounds is amazing – almost like finding the full career of a jazz musician in one space – even though it's only a slice of the rich contributions that Parker has made to music over his decades in jazz! A number of the tracks features important large ensembles that push forward ideas from the loft jazz generation – with players who include Daniel Carter on saxes, David S Ware on tenor, Jemeel Moondoc on alto, Charles Tyler on baritone, Roy Campbell and Raphe Malik on trumpets, Billy Bang on violin, and Rashid Bakr and Dennis Charles on drums. Other tracks feature sparer pairings that are especially haunting – duets between Parker's bass and the alto and trumpet of Daniel Carter, a trio with David S Ware on tenor and Dennis Charles on drums, and two long duo tracks with tenorist Charles Gayle! The whole thing's amazing – worth far more in music than its hefty price tag – and a huge discovery throughout! CD

New VariousLet No One Judge You – Early Recordings From Iran 1906 to 1933 ... CD CD format
Honest Jons (UK), 1900s/1910s/1920s/1930s. New Copy 2 CD Gatefold ... $24.99
An amazing portrait of Iran in the years before WWII – pulled from rare 78rpm recordings which are remastered here beautifully, to present some stunning sounds we'd never have heard otherwise! There's a really unique flavor to most of this music – sounds that lie at the crossroads of the east, and which spring out with some surprisingly modern inflections, while still coming across with a very simple, timeless appeal too. Most of the instrumentation is on percussion and regional stringed instruments, and the vocals can be richly expressive – often with inflections and range that far surpass the instrumentation on the discs. As with the other Honest Jons collections of global 78rpm material, the whole thing is beautifully put together – from the sound quality, to the notes, to the very hefty selection of tracks. Titles include work by Iran Od Dowleh Helen, Seyyed Hoseyn Taherzadeh, Akhtar, Parvaneh, Ebrahim, Javad Badi'Zadeh, and many others. CD

The hefty book is over 400 pages in length, and features a handful of black and white images too. Book

New VariousAfro Beat Airways Vol 2 – Return Flight To Ghana 1974 to 1983 ... LP LP format
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from 70s Ghana – a killer collection that really lives up to all the greatness of other collections on the Analogue Africa label! There's a sharpness here right from the start – an approach to funk that's really universal, and shows why collections from a generation like this move way past the context of standard world music modes – and instead unlock a rich version of the world in which music alone can build plenty of bridges – way beyond the context of politics or national boundaries! By that, we mean that any Anglo crate-digger can find plenty to love here – wicked drums, scratchy guitar, riffing Hammond, and monstrous bass that bounces these tunes beautifully from start to finish – sewing together the grooves in a way that will have you forgetting you can't even understand most of the lyrics. And yet, as with other titles on this great label, the music is also well-situated culturally too – thanks to a hefty set of notes and great images – which will give you plenty of visual discovery while you're digging the sounds on the disc. Titles include "Wop Me A Ka" by The African Brothers, "Do Your Own Thing" by De Frank's Band, "Aja Wondo" by Uppers International, "Loose Up Yourself" by Rob, "I Beg" by Tony Sarfo & The Funky Afrobisi, "Arabo" by K Frimpong, "Say Min Sy Soh" by Pierre Antoine & Vis A Vis, "God Is Love" by Complex Soundz, and "Kana Soro" by Los Issufu & His Moslems.

New Kim GordonPerforming/Guzzling (hardcover) ... Book Book
Rizzoli, 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Surprisingly wonderful visual work from Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth – a lovely book of oversized color reproductions of her unique style of painting – which usually involves watercolor paints on either newspaper or tissue-like paper! The result is these weird, watery sort of images with colors shimmering softly next to each other, and interacting with the paper as well – all with an aesthetic that is quite different from Kim's music. The book is oversized, full color, hardcover, and hefty! Book

New Ugly ThingsIssue 34 – Fall/Winter 2012 ... Magazine Magazine
Ugly Things, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the heaviest magazines on music you'll ever buy – not just for the hefty page count, but for the content as well! Articles are great – very interesting, in-depth tales of the 60s/70s underground – with features on The Haunted, The Others, The Bees, The Spike-Drivers, Jenny & The Rascals, Blue Aces, and others – and cool little features on unusual sounds from unusual scenes too! This time around, Ugly Things clocks in at almost 200 pages – already a lot in itself, but when you consider that the publication's got a lot less ads than most, and uses relatively small type – you'll realize you're getting quite a deal! Loads of black and white photos and images – and a heck of a great read. Magazine

New VariousI Heard The Angels Singing – Electrifying Black Gospel From The Nashboro Label 1951 to 1983 (4CD set) ... CD CD format
Nashboro/Tompkins Square, 1950s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection of gospel material from the Nashboro label – easily one of the most important American companies to document the rise and changes in gospel during the postwar years – but one that's never been given a showcase like this before! The folks at Tompkins Square have always done wonderful work with smaller sources and more individual personalities – but they really knock it out of the park with this hefty dig through the Nashboro catalog – a treasure trove of 80 rare tracks that come mostly from the crucial 50s and 60s years of the label, supported with detailed liner notes that really get at the quality of the music! Nashboro never tried to water things down at all – and, if anything, they always had an ear for letting the most personal message in the music come forth – especially with the smaller group and individual recordings on the set. We'll bet you've not got most of this work in your collection – and titles include tunes by Brother Joe May, The Spiritual Five, Sister Emma Tucker, Bonita Cantrell, Maggie Ingram, Harmonizing Five, The CBS Trumpeters, Southern Echoes, Travelin Echoes, Sullivan Pugh, The Radio Four, Swanee Quartet, Rock Island Singers, Sister Lucille Barbee, and many many others. Great LP-sized package, too! CD

New Russ Bestley & Alex OggArt Of Punk – The Illustrated History Of Punk Rock Design (hardcover) ... Book Book
Voyageur, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The young Johnny Rotten would have winced at the idea of a punk rock art book – but given the underground nature of the movement in its classic years, and the countless lost relics from the scene, we're more than happy to treasure this hefty, full color volume! The book is a treasure trove of materials – like getting a peek at the collection of one of your friends who's ultra-cool, but will never let you get close to his records – and the book is filled with hundreds and hundreds of full color images of 45 sleeves, album covers, and even flyers and gig posters too – not just from the UK and US, but the full global scene as well. Almost all the material is from the classic late 70s/early 80s years – and even if you've got one hell of a record collection, there's plenty more great stuff here too – including some especially great images of posters for local gigs. The book offers up full details on each image – source, artist, and more – and the whole thing is 224 pages, full color, and nicely oversized. Book

New Joe DukesSoulful Drums Of Joe Dukes ... LP LP format
Prestige, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Soulful and pounding! Joe Dukes is one of the greatest soul jazz drummers ever – the key to the unique sound that Jack McDuff had during his big rise to fame in the mid 60s, a combination of tightly funky rhythms underneath, with a freer approach to the top of the kit that worked perfectly with McDuff's hefty Hammond Organ work. The group on this album's McDuff's classic quartet that includes Red Holloway on tenor and alto, George Benson on guitar, and Dukes on drums. The album's got an incredible sound, with Dukes' unique approach to drums scattering all over the kit, creating these complicated dancing rhythms for the organ, sax, and guitar lineup. The album's filled with excellent groovers, like "Moohah the D.J.", "Soulful Drums", "Greasy Drums", and "My Three Sons" – and the whole thing's great! . Filled with excellent groovers, like "Moohah the D.J.", "Soulful Drums", "Greasy Drums", and "My Three Sons". Super-rare, too! LP, Vinyl record album

New Larry Saunders & OthersFree Angela ... CD CD format
Sound Of Soul/Secret Stash, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredibly righteous bit of soul – one of the few albums ever cut by 70s mellow soul genius Larry Saunders, and an amazing tribute to Angela Davis! Larry's got a fantastic voice – one that we'd rank right up there with Donny Hathaway or Marvin Gaye, and which is recorded here with sublimely spare arrangements that have a slight southern soul touch, but which are more in the east coast indie mode in which he often worked. There's other artists in the mix, too – a few others brought together by August Moon/Mr Wiggles for the project – singing and playing some amazing work that makes the whole thing a lost righteous soul treasure. The whole album's amazing – almost like finding a part 2 to What's Going On, or listening into what Otis Redding might have sounded like, had he made it to the 70s. Titles include Saunders singing "Free Angela", "This World", and "Where Did Peace Go" – and other cuts include "Nobody Knows" by Dickie Wonder, "I Can Be" by Brother Love, "Old Uncle Tom Is Dead" by Nitroglycerine, "Baby Can't You See" by Tyrone Thomas, and "Geraldine Jones" by Soul Encyclopedia. Great new version – with a hefty booklet of notes! CD
