L'AltraDifferent Days ... LP
Hefty, 2005. Near Mint- 2LP ... $2.99
A sweet album's worth of melancholy electronic pop from L'Altra! They've been knocking around for several years, and land on Chicago's Hefty Records for this set quite appropriately, as vocalist Lindsay Anderson has been appearing here-and-there in a guest capacity on the best Hefty releases over the past couple of years. She and L'Altra's other core half, Joseph Costa take a much more pronounced approach to songcraft than some of other more experimental artists on Hefty, with lots of quiet, but emotionally intense moments given just enough of an avant feel. Telefon Tel Aviv's Josh Eustis handled the production, scaling back Telefon's tendency towards wildly veering soundscapes very well for a straighter pop record. Tracks include "Sleepless Night", "It Follows Me Around", "Better Than Bleeding", "Bring On Happiness", "So Surprise", "Mail Bomb", "Morning Disaster" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Russ Bestley & Alex OggArt Of Punk – The Illustrated History Of Punk Rock Design (hardcover) ... Book
Voyageur, 2012. New Copy ... $11.99 40.00
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

Michael Crichton (writing as John Lange)Venom Business ... Book
Hard Case Crime, 1970. New Copy ... $2.99 9.95
A snake handler with a penchant for smuggling – caught at the center of this early thriller penned by a young Michael Crichton – working here right before leaping into film with hits like Westworld and Coma! The book's a lot grittier than either of those movies, though – less science, more crime, and a great look at the earliest years that got Crichton going – his years working as pulp paperback author John Lange, nicely recovered here by the Hard Case Crime series! The book's a surprisingly hefty read – 384 pages, and graced with a beautiful paperback cover. Book
(Please Note – The spine has a remainder mark.)

Willis JacksonGator Horn ... LP
Muse, 1979. Sealed ... $2.99
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

Nathan Nedorostek & Anthony PappalardoRadio Silence – A Selected Visual History Of American Hardcore Music ... Book
MTV, 2008. New Copy ... $3.99 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
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

VariousLet No One Judge You – Early Recordings From Iran 1906 to 1933 ... CD
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

✨✧ A Kostis (Constantinos Kostas Bezos)Jail's A Fine School ... LP
Mississippi, Early 30s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautifully folksy work from pre-war Greece – a series of 78s from Constantinos Bezos, not only a musician, but also a journalist and actor too – and reportedly one with a very political wit! That wit comes through in the title of the collection – but might not in the lyrics to all the tunes, unless you understand Greek – but that's more than OK, because the guitar work is equally wonderful – often on this steel-stringed version that has a very resonant quality, and which rings out in these cyclical ways that are really beautiful – almost prefacing a Robbie Basho sort of style, and played in ways that perhaps are linked to other Greek stringed instruments. The package features a very hefty booklet of notes – and the translations of the song titles get at the spirit of the record – and include "A School Was Burned", "Yannis The Hash Smoker", "I Became Thin", "You Were Barefoot", and "The Jail's A Fine School".

✨✧ Kim GordonPerforming/Guzzling (hardcover) ... 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

✨✧ Orchestre VeveVintage Verckys ... CD
Retro Afric (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Totally killing Congolese rumba from the early 70s! Saxophonist and bandleader Verckys Kiamuangana Mateta got his start by contributing grippingly muscular tenor saxophone work with the legendary Franco & OK Jazz during the mid-60s, providing unusual hefty horn work to a style where the guitars typically get the lion' share of the solo space. In 1969, he took the lessons he learned from Franco and started his own band, Orchestre Veve, creating a body of work as good as any of his rivals. American R & B honkers like King Curtis heavily influenced Verckys, but he masterfully adapted this brusque style for the more refined sound of Congolese rumba. While he takes a ton of dynamite solos, there's still a mother lode of sublime guitar playing here, as dazzling lockstep counterpoint keeps the music at a steady boil. Tracks include "Baluti", "Ah Ngai Matinda", "Londende", "Mama Djele", and "Vivita". CD
