Bobby Vince PaunettoComposer In Public ... CD
RSVP, 1996. Used ... $7.99
The brilliant return of one of the greatest Latin jazz artists of the 70s – the incredible Bobby Vince Paunetto, back very firmly in action on this mid 90s session! The vibe picks off nicely from Bobby's landmark albums of the mid 70s – an incredible blend of fusion, Latin rhythms, and warmly chromatic horn passages that explode in an array of soulful rhythms. The work was Bobby's first recording in nearly 20 years – thanks to a hiatus from music brought on by a long bout with MS – but it sounds as if it was recorded right after the album's Commit To Memory & Paunetto's Point, with a similarly sweet mix of acoustic and electric instrumentation. Titles include "Say It Now", "Jacket Listeners", "Love Seems To Find", "When I Got Disconnected", "Composer In Public", "The Beautifully Flawed Game", and "Bottle The Edge". CD

Def Jam, 1990. New Copy 2CD (reissue)... $27.99 29.98
The mindblowing third album from Public Enemy – their second straight up masterpiece in a row – a more densely-layered effort than anything they'd down before or since! Agitprop lyricism laced with soundbite samples from myriad sources that get the point over nearly as fiecely as Chuck's rhymes, and the densest, most dizzying Bomb Squad production ever laid down. Amazing! Decades later, it's as exciting as ever. Includes classics like "Fight The Power", Burn Hollywood Burn", "Welcome To The Terrordome", "Power To The People", "911 Is A Joke" "Revolutionary Generation", "Can't Do Nuttin For Ya Man", "Reggie Jax", "War At 33 1/3" and more. 2014 deluxe edition includes a bonus CD of remixes, B-sides, instrumentals and alternate version from the rare 12"s and more – plus new liner notes.

The massive second album by PE – and the one where where the hit their full creative stride, and their politics and philosphy hit at full force – moving Public Enemy from an imposing threat to both the hip hop and pop music status quo to a straight up cultural phenomenon! There's little we can add to canon of critical regard this unimpeachable classic – just know that it's as essential as any hip hop album of the era. Includes "Bring The Noise", "Don't Believe The Hype", "Prophets Of Rage" and "Rebel Without A Pause", "Cold Lampin With Flavor", "Terminator X To The Edge Of Panic", "Louder Than A Bomb", "Caught, Can We Get A Witness", "She Watch Channel Zero", "Night Of The Living Baseheads", "Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos", "Prophets For Right To Fight" and more.

Public Image Ltd.Flowers Of Romance (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Island/4 Men With Beards, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 23.99
A bold move forward for Public Image Ltd – a set recorded after bassist Jah Wobble left the group – and John Lydon and company made an abrupt shift from bass-heavy dub to a highly percussive mode! With Wobble gone, Keith Levene is even more of a presence here – bringing some amazing drums into play, as well as some very dark guitar – at moments when additional drums were provided by Martin Adkins. The trio lineup is amazing – very raw, earthy, and stripped-down – and the bass is hardly missed with the album's very strong use of drums. Titles include "Four Enclosed Walls", "Track 8", "Flowers Of Romance", "Under The House", "Hymie's Him", "Banging The Door", "Go Back" and "Francis Massacre". LP, Vinyl record album

Public Image Ltd.Second Edition (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Island/4 Men With Beards, 1979. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 31.99
One of the greatest moments ever from the mighty John Lydon – a record that maybe blows away all other albums by Public Image – and which also stands strongly next to the work of the Sex Pistols, but in a very different way! Lydon is quite far from punk rock roots here – and instead works in this bassy, dubby, trippy blend that's served up strongly by the bass work of Jah Wobble – very influenced by Jamaican music, but playing in a style that's got a very different vibe – and quite different from more familiar late 70s attempts to mix punk and reggae. Instead, Wobble and Lydon use the mode as this dark wash of sound – sparkling with weird guitar sounds from Keith Levine, and layered with these haunting lyrics on madness and paranoia – much more dark poetry than anything Lydon ever gave us. The track "Poptones" is worth the price of the record alone – and other tiles include "Swan Lake", "No Birds", "Chant", "No Radio", "Albatross", "Careering", and "Memories". LP, Vinyl record album

Nice stuff from James! "Public Enemy" is a wonderful track, with a long spoken monologue that shows a great side of James' progressive ideas. Nice message about heroin, and a good backing with a mellow feel. Even better is "My Thang", a nice hard funky track that's James' answer to "It's My Thing". It's great how angry he gets when someone else has a big funk hit, and it always seemed like he had to write his own version! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Les BaxterFruit Of Dreams (Ports Of Pleasure/The Sacred Idol) ... CD
Capitol/El (UK), 1957/1960. New Copy ... $3.99
2 rare slices of exotica by Les Baxter – back to back on one CD! The first half of the set features material from the album Ports Of Pleasure – a dreamy exploration of south sea ideals that's got a more lightly drifting quality than some of Baxter's more percussive exotica albums, and which is awash in dreamy soundscapes penned by Les himself! The orchestrations are large and bold throughout – mixing strings and woodwinds almost in a soundtrack-y mode – but always with the light sense of interplay that makes Baxter's work so great. Titles include "Monkey Dance Of Bali", "Pearls Of Ceylon", "Tahiti A Summer Night At Sea", "Hong Kong Cable Car", "Tramp Steamer To Singapore", "Harem Silks From Bombay", and "Sidewalk Cafes Of Saigon". The Sacred Idol is a real standout set from the end of Les Baxter's run at Capitol Records – originally scored for a film that was never released, but a great set of tracks that more than stands strongly on its own! The theme here is a Mexican/Latin American one – explored by Baxter with his trademark blend of larger orchestrations and lighter exotica touches – often swirling around in an extremely evocative mode that makes us wish the film had been issued to the public, and at a few key moments even hinting at the funkier modes that would follow on some of Les' later work for other labels. Titles include "Aqueducts", "Gardens Of The Moon", "Pyramid Of The Sun", "Temple Of Gold", and "Procession Of The Princes". CD

✨✧ William S BurroughsCall Me Burroughs ... CD
ESP/Word Beat, 1966. Used ... $5.99
The first-ever record to capture the amazing voice of William S Burroughs – the author who helped transform fiction forms in the 60s, but also somewhat of a public figure too – thanks to albums like this! The set's was recorded in France, and given wider circulation in the US by seminal indie ESP Records – and the record presents Burroughs reading from his important novels Naked Lunch and The Nova Express. There's less of the cutup and experimental recordings of other later Burroughs records – but given that the books were both written under the influence of those modes, even the reading of the text still has a very unusual quality – especially given the author's incredible voice.

Alan ClaysonSerge Gainsbourg – A View From The Exterior ... Book
Sanctuary (UK), 1998. New Copy Book ... $2.99 12.95
One of the few English language looks we've ever seen at the music of Serge Gainsbourg – a well-penned biography that covers all of his classic years in a fair bit of detail! Author Alan Clayson does a good job of paying as much attention to the music as he does to Serge's celebrity – defining elements that make particular records or musical moments so great – and never getting too bogged down in the more sensational elements of Gainsbourg's life. We really appreciate that – as Serge has always had plenty to offer way past the headlines – and if anything, he's probably best remembered in this century for his key musical contributions much more than his public life. There's a bunch of black and white photos in the middle of the book, but the rest is text – and the softcover edition runs for 244 pages, with a helpful index of Gainsbourg compositions in the back!

Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $29.99
One of the two quartet sessions that Ornette cut for Blue Note in the late 60's – and tight mature work like the New York Is Now sides, recorded in the company of Dewey Redman and the Coltrane rhythm section of Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones, which offers a contrasting perspective to most of the preceding Coleman groups. Ornette plays alto and trumpet, as he was doing around that time, and Redman's playing is amongst his finest on record. Four tunes: the title track, "Airborne", "Check Out Time", and "Open To The Public". LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Collette with Irene KralBuddy Collette Quintet Featuring Irene Kral ... CD
Studio West, 1962. Used ... $5.99
Wonderful work from both Buddy Collette and Irene Kral – initially recorded for the Navy Swings radio show in the early 60s, and finally presented here to the public on CD! The tracks all feature Buddy's early 60s quintet with Al Viola on guitar and Jack Wilson on piano – and Buddy himself is very strongly the lead soloist in the set, stepping away from some of the more tightly arranged modes of his albums of the 50s, and hitting some wonderfully spontaneous moments on flute, clarinet, tenor, and alto sax. Wilson's piano is as lovely and lyrical as on his best albums as a leader from the time, and provides perfect accompaniment to Kral on the album's vocal tracks – which comprised 6 of the CD's total 14 numbers. Kral tunes include "The Meaning Of The Blues", "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most", "Detour Ahead", and "It's A Wonderful World" – and instrumental tunes include "A Taste Of Fresh Air", "Hunt & Peck", "Emaline's Theme", "Road Trip", and "Soft Touch".

Sam CookeMr Soul ... LP
RCA, 1963. Good+ ... $9.99
If there's anyone who earns the name "Mr Soul", it's gotta be Sam Cooke – given that records like these were crucial to getting the term of soul music out to the public in the 60s! The set's a great illustration of the way that Sam cooks up soul, too – as it mostly features familiar tunes, recast by Cooke with a new soul music approach – that deeper feeling he brings to the lyrics, while still holding up a professional polish that rivals the great singers of the decade before. Horace Ott handled the arrangements, with a great blend of strings and soul – and titles include "Smoke Rings", "I Wish You Love", "Little Girl", "Driftin Blues", "Send Me Some Lovin", and "Chains Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

John CorbettSun Ra & Aye Aton – Space, Interiors, & Exteriors 1972 ... Book
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99 27.99
Amazing images from the universe of Sun Ra – a mixture of rare photographs and mural images painted by Aye Aton – sometime percussionist with the Arkestra, and a heck of a great painter too! The book begins with these stunning full color photographs of Ra on the set of Space Is The Place – images from 1972 that echo the cover of the album of the same name, but which feature a costumed Ra in a number of different settings – including a few parking lot shots that make him look like a true visitor from the cosmos, briefly walking on our planet! The bigger second half of the book features photographs of murals painted by Aton (who's also known as Robert Underwood) – all of them spacey and trippy, and in a similar spirit to the Saturn Records album covers – except these were all painted on walls and ceilings, in very vivid colors. Aye painted many images in the Arkestra commune in Philly – and other paintings appear to be from the south side of Chicago – and all work here is seen by the wider public for the first time ever. Archivist John Corbett provides an essay with the book to situate the work – and the whole thing's a vivid visual treat for any fan of Sun Ra! Book

Andre CymoneAC (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1985. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99 15.98
The best of a handful of albums that the one-time Prince bassist put out in the early 80s – a record that made a splash via the great Prince-penned "The Dance Electric" – possibly a blessing and a curse for AC, as Prince was so huge at the time that the record going public was too quick to dismiss him as a clone! But don't let that stop you – as Cymone's got a groove that's all his own – and an 80s soul star definitely worth rediscovering. The percussive vibe is similar to Prince, but Andre's got a leaner, funkier style overall – virtually working as a one man band here, and handling most instrumentation himself – which brings a compact feel to the record that really comes through in the tightness of the grooves. Titles include "The Dance Electric", "Lipstick Lover", "Pretty Wild Lover", "Book Of Love", "Vacation", "Satisfaction", and "Neon Pussycat". Massive 2CD version features loads of bonus tracks – 20 more numbers that include lots of mixes of "The Dance Electric", "Satisfaction", and "Lipstick Lover" – plus "Vacation (Andre Cymone mix)", "Let Me Kiss The Bride (inst)", and "Anything (inst)".

The cover's got an image of the New York City skyline, circa 1977 – and the sound library grooves within do a pretty great job of matching that vibe as well! The set's awash in sweet funky electric touches – and some cuts are jazzy, some are clubby, and all are handled with a style that's right up there with the best Italian sound library material of the period – small combo work that's never too slick or commercial, but really well-played – with more than enough of the right funky elements to appeal to any New York listener of the time, even though the album was only pressed in a very limited run, and never originally issued to the public at all. Titles include "Subways", "Bus Stop", "Fluting", "Magnolia Boulevard", "Cigar's Factory", "Nigros", and "Niagara Falls". LP, Vinyl record album

Eighth BlackbirdHand Eye ... CD
Cedille, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Stunning work from Eighth Blackbird – easily one of the most important groups on the Chicago scene in recent years – and instrumental in bringing modern music out of the ivory tower, and back into a much more vibrant public presence! These guys are forging a legacy that rivals that of some of the early ensembles of Philip Glass or Steve Reich, or of Kronos Quartet in the 80s – and their lineup is very inventive – flutes, clarinets, violin, cello, piano, and percussion – used in ways that are tremendously varied, and with a power that moves far beyond some of the more obtuse modes of other modern groups. Eighth Blackbird never seem to forget a sense of melody, even when very experimental – and this album rings out with wonderful flourishes of light and tone, in ways that we haven't heard from a set of contemporary compositions in many years. The album features reworkings of pieces from the Maxine & Stuart Frankel Foundation – re-imagined by composers Timo Andres, Andrew Norman, Robert Honstein, Christopher Cerrone, Ted Herne, and Jacob Cooper – all with an ear towards the group's unique musical powers.

Gil EvansOut Of The Cool/Into The Hot ... CD
Impulse (Germany), 1960/1961. New Copy ... $11.99
Two formative albums from Gil Evans – back to back on a single CD! Out Of The Cool is a pivotal session for Gil Evans – one that brought his genius to the American public strongly and successfully, without the help of Miles Davis! Sure, Gil had recorded albums as a leader before this one – but the sparkling quality of this set is right up there with the charts he handled for Miles, and the quality of the players in the group make the performance every bit as great. Gil's band includes trumpeter Johnny Coles, plus Ron Carter on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, Budd Johnson on tenor, and Ray Crawford on guitar. Titles include "Stratusphunk", "Sunken Treasure", "La Nevada", and a great reading of Kurt Weil's "Bilbao Song". Into The Hot is the harder of the two Gil Evans albums on Impulse to find, and the best – really far-reaching material that has Evans coming into contact with some of the hippest jazz players of his generation! The record's got three incredible tracks written by Cecil Taylor – a very bold move for Evans, given Taylor's strongly out reputation even at this point in his career – and possibly even more bold, given that Taylor's on the tracks playing piano, alongside players who include Archie Shepp, Jimmy Lyons, Sonny Murray, and Henry Grimes. The material's fantastic, and is a key part of Taylor's work at the time, and shows a very different setting for his piano – a bit of tension with the larger Evans group, in a way that's almost more compelling than his own early dates as a leader! Taylor titles include "Pots", "Bulbs", and "Mixed". The other tracks on the album were written by John Carisi, who wrote the classic "Israel" for Miles Davis' nine piece group in the late 40s – but who here contributes "Moon Taj", "Angkor Wat", and "Barry's Tune". Carisi's tracks are a bit more subdued, but no less wonderful – and arrangements are by Taylor and Carisi, of their own music, presented with the Evans modern touch. If you ever needed a record to convince you that Gil Evans was a genius, this is it! CD

GoblinLa Via Della Droga ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
Very rare material from the legendary Goblin – originally written for an Italian cop thriller in 1977, but never issued to the public until the CD generation! The music ranks with some of the group's best thriller work – with many funky rock passages, plenty of nice keyboards, and lots of fuzzy guitar – but there's also a unique quality that really makes the record stand out, too – maybe some more sensitive passages that have slight Latin touches in the rhythms, and a wider sense of style than just the group's usual jamming – a very hip sound that links this one more to the bigger Italian cop/crime of the period, than some of the other Goblin horror material! In fact, we might well say that this is one of our favorite Goblin records – and one of the funkiest too. New CD version – with more music, and a total of 26 tracks in all! CD

Burning Sounds/Secret (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
Gregory Isaacs' name is on the cover – but the dub component here means that there's maybe a bit less vocals in the mix – as the album's the dub companion to Gregory's late 70s classic Cool Ruler! This set is much more focused on the excellent instrumental work – laid down by the Revolutionaries, with rhythms from Sly & Robbie, and keyboards from Ansel Collins – all mixed beautifully by a young Prince Jammy, at King Tubby's studio! The use of echo and odd electric bits at the edges is completely sublime – and titles include "Slum", "Reform Institution", "Tam Tam", "Leaving", "Public Eyes", and "Leggo Beast". CD

Jazz On The Latin Side All-StarsJazz On The Latin Side All-Stars Vol 1 ... CD
CuBop/Ubiquity, 2000. Used ... $4.99
An excellent set that's a fitting tribute to the genius of the West Coast Latin Scene! For as many years as New York's been a hot city for Latin jazz, Los Angeles has also had an excellent scene, filled with many talented players – but it's always been eclipsed in the history books because of a New York-centrism in reissues, compilations, and general writing on Latin music. However, one of the strongest forces to change this Big Apple-bias in Latin fans has been the groundbreaking Jazz On The Latin Side radio program – which for the past decade has provided public radio with broadcasts of live sets that show the rich amount of talent on the west coast. On the 10th anniversary of the show, a host of great players teamed up to cut this live set for Cubop in LA – including Justo Almario, Francisco Aguabella, Alex Acuna, Otmario Ruiz, Poncho Sanchez, and many others. The music is sophisticated Latin jazz, drenched in the soulful history that separates west coast Latin – especially that of the 70s – from its east coast counterpart. The playing is great, and the record is way more than a loose roots-oriented jam session. Higlights include the massive 15 minute "Descarga Cachao", plus original compositions "Mujer Chicana", "Shortcuts", and "Arabian Moods", which were all written by Jose Rizo, the host of the Jazz On The Latin Side program. Great stuff – and another winner for Cubop! CD

JBsFood For Thought ... LP
People, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The classic first album by The JBs – James Brown's Fred Wesley-led backing band, and the force behind most of his greatest records of the early 70s! The band are incredible at this point – sharper, harder, and funkier than just about any other combo around – and that includes all the thousands of groups in the funky 45 underground who were always trying to copy their sound, but never got things this right! Not only are the rhythms the stuff of legend – but the use of the instruments is far far above the norm – as can be heard on the mindblowing "The Grunt", which was sampled heavily by Public Enemy to great fame – and which features a saxophone solo that sounds more like a whistling tea kettle! The set collects some of the group's best early singles, and includes all of the short little funky cuts that made them a legend right out of the box – "Pass the Peas", "The Grunt", "These Are The JBs", "Hot Pants Road", "Wine Spot", "To My Brother", "Blessed Blackness", "Theme From King Heroin", "Escapism (parts 1 & 2), and "Gimme Some More" – all together here in one tight little album of massive funky hard beats and breaks!

Chelsea Louise BerlinRave Art – Flyers Invitations & Members Cards From The Birth Of Acid House Culbs & Raves (hardcover) ... Book
Carlton (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 29.95
Remember the years before the internet and social media – when people had to communicate special news using real world, physical means? Notes passed in class, posters on walls, and gig flyers were all a hell of a lot more important then than they are now – and that whole means of communication took on an even more important role during the late 80s/early 90s years of rave culture! This beautiful book takes us back to the secret networks that drove the scene back in those days – when gigs were mostly illegal, and only publicized through handbills and flyers, circulated only by hand, but bringing in crowds by the thousands. The book presents vintage rave invites and club cards from the glory days of the London scene – all in vivid color, which really brings out the great graphics used to promote the events. Book is almost 200 pages, hardcover. Book

Fela & Africa 70JJD (Johnny Just Drop)/Unnecessary Begging (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Knitting Factory, 1976/1977. Used Gatefold ... $7.99
2 stunners – back to back on one CD! "JJD (Johnny Just Drop)" is a great live track recorded in 1977 at Fela's own Kalakuta Republic – and it's a great number that begins casually, with Fela talking a bit, introducing the conga player, before the band goes wild on the cut, an extended groover in triple-time that's also an attack on the way that Africans abroad can lose a sense of their own cultural value. Unnecessary Begging may not be the most famous of Fela albums, but it's got some great bits! The track "Unnecessary Begging" takes up all of side one of the original LP, and it begins with this amazingly spooky sax solo that starts out spare, then snakes through the building rhythm lines laid down by Tony Allen. "No Burudei" is took up side two, and it's a pumped-up groover with fast guitar and bass, rolling along in a classic Africa 70 groove, while the rest of the band slowly joins into the fray! CD

FlashbackIssue 8 – Spring 2016 ... Magazine
Flashback (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $22.99
Treat yourself to a magazine-induced Flashback – one that won't come back to haunt you in the way an acid-based one will do – and which will instead take you back to the heady sounds of the 60s – all in an issue that's big enough to be a book! The oversized publication is full color throughout, with nicely long features that really dig into the subject matter – in an issue with features on Mushroom, Tamam Shud, The Parlour Band, Human Beast, producers George Martin and David Hitchcock, reedman Robert Calvert, the magazine Time Out, Austrian psych group Paternoster, and a rundown of the 50 best private pressing albums to come from the UK! The issue also features a smattering of music and book reviews – and a look at the lost Day Breaks album from John Wonderling. Over 200 pages – and printed on heavy paper stock! Magazine

Gang Of FourSolid Gold (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
A stunning second set from the mighty Gang Of Four – and a record that's got all the power and politics of their famous Entertainment debut! The set's got some wonderfully heavy basslines amidst the scratchy guitar that makes the group so great – but nothing's too polished, certainly not as in their crossover club modes to come – and the call/response vocal style of Andy Gill and Jon King is tremendous – a very fresh way to deliver the message, and one that's still never been matched all these many years later. Titles include "Paralyzed", "What We All Want", "Why Theory", "If I Could Keep It For Myself", "Cheeseburger", "The Republic", "Outside The Trains Don't Run On Time", "In The Ditch", "A Hole In The Wallet", and "He'd Send In The Army".

Victor Gorelick & Craig Yoe (editors)Art Of Archie – The Covers (hardcover) ... Book
Archie Books, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 29.99
Almost 70 years of images from the legendary Archie Comics – a big book that brings together some of the best cover art from that long-running publication – plus lots of other related comics as well! Our favorite bits here are from the 40s, 50s, and 60s – when the comic was creating its own aesthetic, and graced by some incredible artists – but the book also includes some surprisingly decent images from later years, too – and all covers are presented in full color, some on very large oversized pages, some fitting comfortably together in clusters on the big pages too. The book offers looks at key Archie artists – like Bob Montana, Dan DeCarlo, Samm Schwartz, and Harry Lucey – as well as little bundles of thematic elements that repeat nicely over the years, sometimes in interesting ways. There's a few bits of original art, too – and every image comes with text that includes the date and artist. Book is 157 pages, very large, hardcover, and in full color! Book

Dian HansonDian Hanson's History Of Pin-up Magazines Vols 1 to 3 (hardcover) ... Book
Taschen (Germany), 2013. New Copy ... $15.99 39.99
A beautiful history of the girlie magazine in the 20th Century – served up in a package that's as striking as the publications themselves! This three volume set is a smaller edition of the previous books by Dian Hanson – but it's still a hell of a heavy package, with each hardcover book in very lavish color, contained within a heavy slipcover that even has printing on the inside as well! Hanson and other writers take on publications that range from art guidebooks, to naturist and physical culture guides, to mens magazines, and more – in a series that runs up to the 60s, and stops before any of the bigger mainstream porn books of the 70s! There's plenty of nude bodies inside, but most of the shots are relatively tasteful – with aesthetics that run from art nouveau and art deco, to the airbrushed ladies of early Playboy and Adam Magazine. The three books contain over 800 pages between them – filled with reproductions of magazine covers, inside shots, and more – and some very illuminating history as well. Book

Rian HughesLifestyle Illustration Of The 60s ... Book
Fiell (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $10.99 45.00
A gorgeous book of magazine illustrations from the 60s – pulled from fashion, lifestyle, and other publications of the period – and wrapped up here in a totally book that's every bit as seductive as the image on its cover! The images here represent a key moment in illustration – a point when things were getting a lot more colorful and vibrant, and somewhat abstract as well – a shift that you can really follow through the roughly chronological progress of the hundreds of images inside – all of which are in very vibrant color, and presented away from any of the text from their original appearances. Yet by their nature, the images are very narrative in themselves – and seem to tell these tiny little tales of love, loss, and longing – all in a range of pastels, watercolors, and inks. 464 pages, full color, and very beautifully done!

The magazine really digs deep – way more so than other psych publications we've seen – and the scope of material here is pretty obscure, and very well-covered – with articles on Bob Martin, Dana Westover, David Bixby, Michael Yonkers, William Nowick, Merrell Fankhauser, The Tree People, and other talents from the psychedelic underground – served up alongside a host of reviews – both of vintage psych titles and some contemporary gems too!

JamSetting Sons ... LP
Polydor/Republic, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 24.99
The Jam close out the 70s with one of their greatest records – one that shows Paul Weller's songwriting skill in much more impressive light than on their earlier albums! Weller's really come into his own here as sharp-witted chronicler of daily life here, particularly from point of view of a young adult with vivid memory of his childhood – lyrically, it's excellent work, but in focusing too much on the songwriting craft you run the risk of glossing over just how exciting The Jam are as a band. The production is brighter and fuller bodied than before, but they're still a fierce band, really letting it rip at times, but increasing focus on melody and mood is pretty remarkable step forward. Titles include "Burning Sky", "Smithers Jones", "Eton Rifles", "Strange Town", "Thick As Thieves", and "Heat Wave". LP, Vinyl record album

The silver age of comics never looked this great before – presented in a massive (really massive!) book of full color images from this crucial run of DC comics – with hundreds of covers, inside artwork, original drawings, publicity material, and more – all put together by former DC head Paul Levitz! The silver age saw DC really reinventing itself – changing characters, reinventing heroes, and changing with the culture of the 60s – at a level that produced some incredible images in the process, a good deal of which are in this book! In addition to the superhero material you'd guess from the cover, the book also features material from DC's war, sci-fi, horror, and humor lines – plus loads and loads of other images too. The giant book is almost 400 pages, full color, and worth every penny if you're as into comics as we are! Book

NasHip Hop Is Dead ... CD
Def Jam, 2006. Used ... $3.99
Leave it to career iconoclast Nas to declare Hip Hop Is Dead on his Def Jam debut – a defiantly straight up hip hop record that's one of the leanest full lengths he's delivered since his abbreviated debut masterpiece! Hip Hop Is Dead, not surprisingly, is actually a very lively LP – and it's tried-and-true hip hop – another in Nas's strong series of subsequent LPs of the 00s. Nas once released a perfect piece of work – something very few artists in any idiom ever do – setting up a nearly impossible standard to live up to, but, Hip Hop Is Dead is well worth your time. Production by Salaam Remi (natch), LES, Kanye West, Scott Storch (who delivers a Kanye-like sound on one cut) and others. Titles include "Money Over Bullsh*t", "You Can't Kill Me", "Carry On Tradition", "Hip Hop Is Dead" feat Will I Am, "Black Republican?" feat Jay Z, "Not Going Back" feat Kelis, "Still Dreamin" feat Kanye West & Chrisette Michelle, "Hold Down The Block", "Blunt Ashes", "Play On Playa", "Where Are They Now?", "Let There Be Light" feat Tre Williams, "Hustlers" feat The Game & Marsha Ambrosious and more.

✨✧ Wadada Leo SmithNotes (8 Pieces) – Source A New World Music – Creative Music ... Book
Leo Smith/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1973. New Copy ... $12.99 15.00
A lost publication from Wadada Leo Smith – early 70s notes on music by the trumpeter and AACM legend – originally published in a tiny edition of 200 copies! Smith has always been one of the most intellectual musicians of his scene – and it's amazing to read his very fully-formed ideas at this early point in his career – a moment when so many other contemporaries might have been stumbling forward blindly, but Leo was moving on his own very thoughtful trajectory. The writing is almost poetic – and the presentation is too – a slim, specially-printed volume that's almost like a chapbook you'd get from a serious writer in a small press. A great complement to Wadada Leo Smith's music from the time – and reprinted here just like the original, but with a few additional notes. Book

TaiguaraImyra, Tayra, Ipy, Taiguara ... CD
EMI/Kuarup (Brazil), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A pretty mind-blowing album from Taiguara – worlds ahead of most of his other records, with very ambitious arrangements done in collaboration with Hermeto Pascoal and Wagner Tiso! The scope of the work is quite large – a complex blend of many instruments that soars with the soulfulness of some of the Milton Nascimento experiments from the same time, yet which at times has a rootsiness and a "natural" approach that drives the whole thing home! Incredibly hard to describe accurately – but if you like the work of Pascoal and Tiso at all, the record's a real treat – and a rare chance to hear this under-recognized Brazilian artist at his best. Titles include "Situacao", "Tres Pontas", "Outra Cena", "Pianice", "Publico", "Terra Das Palmeiras", and "Luanda Violeta Africana". CD
