Fred AndersonAnother Place ... LP
Moers (Germany), 1978. Near Mint- ... $49.99
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 ... $4.99 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!

✨✧ Raph RashidBack to the Lab – Hip Hop Home Studios (hardcover) ... Book
Gingko Press, 2017. New Copy ... $26.99 35.00
Hip hop started in the streets, then quickly moved to the studio once the music got more sophisticated – then made a further move to the home studio as costs went up and technology got better – almost taking things back to the underground as it opened up lots of new creative freedoms! Raph (aka Raphael) Rashid first examined these new spaces in his classic book Behind The Beat – issued over a decade back, and a crucial look at the new underground of hip hop production – and this volume follows up with new spaces from the ensuing years – all represented with the great sort of photography and attention to detail that we loved in the first book! Raph's got unfettered access to these amazing spaces – non-public production sites, responsible for some of the best sounds of the underground – in chapters that look at Kenny Dope, J Dilla, Flying Lotus, Oh No, Dianmond D, Khalil, Waajeed, Oddisee, Alchemist, Jazzy Leff, Just Blaze, Sa Ra, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Lord Finesse, and others – with pictures of the artists, their creative space, and even their record collections too. Most of the book is photographs, but there's also introductory text for each chapter too – and the whole thing is a hefty 212 pages, hardcover. Book

Capitol/Bear Family (Germany), 1930s/1940s. Used 4CDs ... $36.99

Louise SimonsonDC Comics Covergirls (hardcover) ... Book
Chartwell Books, 2007. New Copy ... $7.99 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. The book was put together by Louise Simonson – herself a bit of a comic hero, given her decades of work as a writer and editor – and the whole thing is 208 pages, hefty, oversize, and full color!

✨✧ Willis JacksonGator Horn ... LP
Muse, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A late 70s effort from Gator Tail, with him blowing in his hefty, bluesy style. The group's a larger organ based soul jazz combo, with Joe Jones on guitar, and a number of lesser known sidemen fillingout the group: Yusef Ali, Dud Bascomb, Buddy Caldwell and Carl Wilson. Though the playing's tight, it lacks some of the spark of his Prestige sides, and suffers a bit from the too crisp production values. Half a dozen numbers in all: "Ungawa", "You've Changed", "Hello, Good Luck", "The Gator Horn", "This Is Always" and "Gooseneck". LP, Vinyl record album

Epic (France), Late 30s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of Lester Young's first great moments of prominence – his late 30s recordings with the Count Basie Band, offered here in a well-done collection issued as a memorial after his death in 1959! The sets are all led by Basie, but most feature strong saxophone lead by Young – solos that helped define the tenor sax sound of a generation, nestled in alongside other top-shelf players who include Buddy Tate on tenor, Freddie Green on guitar, and Harry Edison and Buck Clayton on trumpets. The set features a hefty 24 tracks in all – and titles include "Broadway", "Blow Top", "Dickie's Dream", "Clap Hands Here Comes Charlie", "Pound Cake", "Rock A Bye Basie", "Riff Interlude", "Easy Does It", "Jump For Me", "Hollywood Jump", "Tickle Toe", "12th Street Rag", "I Left My Baby", and "Shoe Shine Boy".

✨✧ Classic PopIssue 31 – August 2017 ... Magazine
Classic Pop (UK), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A hefty magazine that celebrates the world of pop from the 70s onwards – which, this time around, makes for a great feature on some of the best soundtracks of the late 70s, 80s, and 90s!

✨✧ VariousAfro Beat Airways Vol 2 – Return Flight To Ghana 1974 to 1983 ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... 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.

✨✧ 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 ... Out Of Stock
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!
