Public EnemyYo! Bum Rush The Show ... CD
Def Jam, 1987. New Copy ... $3.99 9.98
The first mind-blowing salvo from the legendary PE! Public Enemy came with that strong, righteous voice in full force from the get-go – and if it's not quite the revolutionary aural experience as the following couple of albums on the production from, it's still pretty damn riveting effort. Hands down one of the best and most original hip hop debuts of the late 80s! Tracks include "You're Gonna Get Yours", "Timebomb", "Miuzi Weighs a Ton", "Public Enemy No. 1", "Raise The Roof", "Terminator Ex Speaks With His Hands", "Sophisticated B*tch", and the title cut. CD

Public Image LtdMetal Box (4CD super deluxe edition – with 72-page book) ... CD
Universal (UK), 1979. Used 4CDs ... $69.99
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 an eternal classic by itself – but the whole effort is a landmark – including "Swan Lake", "No Birds", "Chant", "No Radio", "Albatross", "Careering", and "Memories". This mammoth 4CD set – in a metal box (naturally) – comes loaded with with B-sides, alternate mixe & BBC sessions with Top Of The Pops versions, Peel Sessions and more (disc two), even rarer and complete unreleased mixes (disc three) and a live set from Manchester's Russell Club (The Factory) from 1979 (disc four). Box set also includes 72 book, poster and art prints. CD

Def Jam, 1991. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe one of the last moments of genius from Public Enemy – and a set that still has their power and politics very much at the top of their game! The message may even be more powerful than the music at points – no surprise for Chuck D and crew at this point in their career – but in comparison to so many other weaker records from the time, the whole thing's still held up very well with age – and has managed to slide strongly into the rest of their previous catalog. Titles include their popular "Bring Tha Noize" duet with Anthrax – plus "Get the F–- Outta Dodge", "Can't Truss It", "By The Time I Get To Arizona", "Nighttrain", "Shut Em Down", "A Letter To The New York Post", "1 Million Bottlebags", and "More News At 11".

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.

✨✧ Ernestine AndersonNever Make Your Move Too Soon ... LP
Concord, 1980. Very Good ... $1.99
A key moment in the career of vocalist Ernestine Anderson – a record that not only returned her to the public eye after a flurry of initial sides in the late 50s and early 60s, but which also finally helped Anderson find a sound that worked! The album's done with backing by the Monty Alexander trio – in a style that's bluesy and soul jazz inflected, but with a sweeter west coast sound – almost an early 80s equivalent of the groove explored by Lou Rawls or Ernie Andrews in LA during the mid 60s, but done with an even more relaxed, jazz-based approach here. The title track – "Never Make Your Move Too Soon" – was an instant standout that got Anderson play in many corners of the US – and other tracks are more familiar numbers, but done in a similar mode – with titles that include "Old Folks", "As Long As I Live", "Just One More Chance", "Poor Butterfly", and "My Shining Hour".

Les BaxterSacred Idol ... LP
Capitol, 1960. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Jacques Brel, Georges Brassens, & Leo FerreTrois Hommes Sur La Photo (4CDs & DVD) ... CD
Universal (France), 1969. New Copy 4CD & DVD ... $19.99
A fantastic package based around a legendary meeting of three of the greatest minds in French music in the 60s – singer/songwriters Jacques Brel, George Brassens, and Leo Ferre – who shared a space for a famous discussion on the state of music and culture at the time! The package features 3CDs of music by each individual artist – some of the best songs by Jacques Brel, George Brassens, and Leo Ferre – plus a bonus CD that features their entire conversation together – very riveting stuff, if you can understand the language – and captured perfectly, with that flair for public intellectualism that we've never been able to manage over here, but which the French can do so well. The package also features a DVD on their meeting – a documentary, using some of the photos from the event, plus commentary by key contemporaries who include Juliette Greco and Jacques Higelin. The three music CDs alone are a bargain at this price – with 36 tracks in all – and packaged with the DVD and other CD, they make for a hell of a nice box set! CD

William S BurroughsCall Me Burroughs ... CD
ESP/Word Beat, 1966. Used ... $6.99
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.

Cabildo's ThreeYuxtaposicion ... CD
Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
Very very very cool stuff from Italy in the 70's. This tight little combo featuring Fender Rhodes, electric bass, and congas lays down some super tight grooves with a very deep, very funky, very laid back feel. Originally intended for soundtrack use in TV and commercials, this disc has finally been released to the public, and it's been worth the wait! As great as the words "Fender Rhodes", "Italy", and "congas" might suggest, and even better upon repeated listenings. Some tracks have a slightly Latin feel, while others sound like super mellow CTI grooves. Excellent stuff, and it's hardly been off our turntable this month! CD

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!

Sam CookeMr Soul ... LP
RCA, 1963. Very Good ... $24.99
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".

Bill EvansGreen Dolphin Street ... CD
Milestone, 1959/1962. Used ... $7.99
Lost Bill Evans material from his tremendous early run on Riverside Records – sessions recorded in 1959, but unreleased to the public for many years! The core of the record features Evans working with Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones both rhythm players that Bill interacted with while working in the Miles Davis group, and a strongly-voiced team to echo the sense of space and timing that was the particular Evans touch in the early days. Why these tracks never came out is a real mystery to us – because Bill's still very much at the top of his game, despite having not liked the material at the time of recording – and the Chambers/Jones rhythm section give the tunes a very solid focus throughout. Titles include "You & The Night & The Music", "My Heart Stood Still", "On Green Dolphin Street", "How Am I To Know", and 2 takes of "Woody N You". Added to that number is a really surprising bonus – a 1962 recording of "Loose Bloose", done with Jim Hall on guitar and Zoot Soms on alto – making for one of those rare non-trio dates by Evans! CD

Donald FagenEminent Hipsters (hardcover) ... Book
Penguin Books, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99 26.95
The authorial debut of Donald Fagan – already a hell of a storyteller in the songs he's penned on his own, and for Steely Dan – and equally great here on the printed page! In the book, Fagan looks at some of the forces that shaped him in his youth – from figures who include Ennio Morricone, Ike Turner, Henry Mancini, and Jean Shepherd – to other aspects of his life in suburban New Jersey, all presented with the kind of wit and turns of a phrase that you'd find in his songs. Given the sometimes-oblique quality of Fagan and Steely Dan, at least in the public eye, the book is surprisingly down to earth, and almost revelatory – a total of 158 pages in this hardcover edition.

Claude Paradise Gray/Giuseppe U Net PipitoneNo Half Steppin – An Oral & Pictorial History Of New York City Club The Latin Quarter & The Birth Of Hip Hop's Golden Era ... Book
Wax Poetics, 2016. New Copy ... $34.99
A nice history of the classic hip hop culture in NYC that rose from Manhattan's Latin Quarter club – a vital mid 80s proving ground for legends and trailblazers of the time! No Half Steppin' is laid out beautifully in rarely seen photos, street flyers, and the first-hand knowledge of X-Clan cofounder and Latin Quarter host and manager Claude "Paradise" Gray, with author/activist/historian Giusseppe "U.Net" Pipitone, and a wealth of oral history from key players including Kurtis Blow, Grand Puba, Dana Dane, Prince Paul, Queen Latifah, Big Daddy Kane, Fab Five Freddy, KRS-One, Special K and many more. Paradise Gray was a major part of the team that helped turn the club into a hotbed for early hip hop talent, and many of the incredible photos here are from his personal archives. It's a solid time capsule – with tons of full color photos of destined-for-greatness figures on stage and on the scene, with some of the above mentioned heavies and many more. The textual history here nearly as rich as the photos, with chapters on the club's history, key performances over the years, the dance scene there, the impact of Public Enemy on the scene, and much more.

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!

There's plenty of fuzz on the guitars, and these guys definitely have a freewheeling sound when they want – especially when the solos take off – yet they also bring a surprisingly tuneful vibe to the set, too – and have a way of penning lyrics that are a lot deeper than the usual garage group of the period, which almost gives some moments a Millenium-like sort of charm.

An amazing sonic portrait of the modern city – one created on the early 70s Italian scene, but lost to the shifting sands of time, due to its release as a sound library-only album! We've heard Maria Teresa Luciani on a few other records of this nature – but this one may well be her greatest – music that's beyond categorization in the way it presents its subject – not really jazz or soundtrack styles at all, but also not some sort of too-modern compositional idiom either. Instead, the whole thing seems to make some sort of honest, organic sense – as it presents differing aspects of the city, both residential and commercial, public and private – often with a sense of darkness in the immediate approach, but also with a current of hope at times too. Titles include "Public Gardens", "Modern Residential Complex", "Supermarket", "Poor Neighborhoods", "Power Station", "Traffic", and "International Airport". LP, Vinyl record album

Late 70s material from Derrick Morgan – a singer who first rose to fame during the early ska years of the 60s – but who continued to add his talents to plenty of fine records in the following decade! This set has Morgan working with Bunny Lee – in a mode that's a bit of an update of older rocksteady modes, with maybe some of the dubby currents of Lee's more contemporary material of the time – balanced in a great way with Morgan's soulful exclamations! The song titles here indicate some of the increased social agenda of the material – and tracks include "Natty Dread Forward Out Of Babylon", "People's Decision", "Let's Build A Better Jamaica", "Ital Man", "In The Public's Interest", and "Rough Grinder".

VariousHaiti Vodou – Ritual Music From The First Black Republic 1937 to 1962 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 30s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Just Sold Out!
Some of the earliest recordings of voodoo work from Haiti – served up here in a 3CD collection that includes a surprisingly huge amount of material! Some of the rawest work here was recorded in the field, but with clarity enough to make the chanted vocals and heavy percussion come through strongly – and other material was recorded as part of postwar projects by American labels, to document the very unusual, very site-specific sounds coming out of Haiti at the time! The set begins with some early acetate recordings from the 30s, then moves onto include the three volumes of the Music Of Haiti series from Folkways – all recorded in the early 50s, with a very rich quality. Next are a few albums that were issued by Elektra – including the famous Voices Of Haiti album, recorded by avant filmmaker Maya Deren, plus the label's Festival In Haiti album too. There's also a range of other small label recordings, too – material from a Remington label album, the Rituel Vaudou En Haiti record on Bam, and the Ceremonies Vaudou En Haiti album on Pacific – which makes for at least 8 albums' worth of material, plus more – in a big 3CD package that features 63 tracks in all, with notes in English and French.

✨✧ Alton DelmoreTruth Is Stranger Than Publicity – The Delmore Brothers (paperback) ... Book
Country Music Foundation, 1977/1995. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful look in the world of the Delmore Brothers – one of early American country music's greatest harmony duos and family acts – written by Alton Delmore! Alton and his brother Rabon Delmore began performing back in 1926 and were early performers on the Grand Ole Opry, and continued into the early 50s before Rabon Delmore passed away. The Delmore Brothers aren't as famous all these decades later as contemporaries such as The Carter Family, but the Delmores are just as vital to country music history, having influenced later harmony acts such as Louvins and the Everlys. Alton passed away in 1964 – and his son eventually delivered the manuscript to the Country Music Foundation, who first published it in the late 70s. Book

Renata AdlerAfter The Tall Timber – Collected Nonfiction (hardcover) ... Book
New York Review Of Books, Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy ... $8.99 29.95
A fantastic collection of nonfiction work from Renata Adler – a writer we first discovered through her inventive fiction, but one who's got a much greater history as a journalist – including decades of work for the New Yorker and other publications! This huge book brings together some of Adler's best pieces – articles handled with the same key eye and ear as her fiction, especially for the voices of the subjects involved – presented with dialogue that's extremely compelling in many of the works. The book spans the space of decades – and includes Adler on subjects as diverse as prostitution in LA, G Gordon Liddy, Civil Rights in Mississippi, the Six Day War, the Starr Report, violence in film, Biafra, and dozens of others – often snapshots both in history and American cultural struggle, captured beautifully by Adler's prose. The book is 514 pages, hardcover. Book

Robert ChristgauGoing Into The City – Portrait Of A Critic As A Young Man – A Memoir (hardcover) ... Book
Dey St, 2015. New Copy ... $8.99 27.99
Robert Christgau is one of the coolest music writers of all time – a hugely important force for decades, through his work in the Village Voice – where he helped shape acceptance and understanding of generations of new sounds – and a contributor to other publications and broadcast outlets, where his voice is always one of the smartest in the room! And while we've always dug what Christgau has to say about other folks, it's also pretty great to read his own story, too – a life spent living in New York, where his path crossed countless other cultural figures and moments, apart from the music and musicians you might expect. This volume focuses mostly on his youth, his growth on the New York scene of the 60s, and his role in the 70s – and the book is hardcover, 366 pages. Book

PS Artbooks (UK), 1952. New Copy ... $11.99 69.99
One of the best-remembered comics from the pre-code generation – a landmark publication that offered up top-notch science fiction and horror – at a level that really rose the bar for the rest of the industry! The stories are all great – creepy, but with a real sense of structure that packs a hell of a lot into an eight to ten page story – and the art is wonderful – that vivid, striking style you'd only find in the best of the early 50s horror comics. The printing style here is great, too – heavy pages, lush color, and a mode that's far better to read than any yellowing old comics – and a fair bit less expensive too! This volume features six full issues, over 250 pages in length, complete with all the original ads too – and artwork by the likes of Al Williamson, King Ward, Ken Bald, Lou Cameron, Harry Lazarus, Jay Disbrow, and others.

FrankensteinFrankenstein Vol 6 – December 1948 to November 1952 – Issues 16 to 21 (slip-cased hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A very unusual volume in this classic series – one that features the last half of the original cartoony take on Frankenstein by artist Dick Briefer, then follows with the re-worked series from 1952 – which moves into much more horror-based artwork overall! Briefer's original run is one of the weirdest, goofiest takes on the Frankenstein character ever created – as, rather than present the character in the traditional monstrous version, Briefer took Frankenstein into the same sort of territory as Herman Munster – kind of a comical figure who does more good than harm, with a surprisingly sweet demeanor that hardly belies his hulking physique! Briefer's art is great – very cartoony, but at an expressionist level that's almost in the territory of Milt Gross – and which has gotten him lots of acclaim over the years. Then, after shutting down in 1949, the series comes back in 1952 – the "second chapter" of Dick Briefer's classic Frankenstein comic – pulled from a time when the publication had left behind the cartoony style of Briefer's original run, and moved into much starker horror territory for the big early 50s boom in the format! The work here is much more gritty – with lead stories that are still about the main character, but which focus on some of his greater psychological complexity – mixed with supporting stories that are more in a 50s horror anthology mode – not filler, but excellent horror stories on a par with other work reprinted in these PS Artbooks series! Book is 224 pages, full color, and hardcover. Book

Michel Frizot & Cedric De VeigyVU – The Story Of A Magazine (hardcover) ... Book
Thames & Hudson, 2009. New Copy ... $11.99 75.00
That VU isn't the Velvet Underground – but instead the title of an amazing French magazine from the prewar years – still a landmark in graphic design, and presented here in a very large, very vivid book that offers up pages and pages from the original publication! The book begins with a bit of history, then quickly moves into reproductions of articles and full pages that ran in VU during the 30s – with an especially strong focus on its revolutionary approach to photography – which was almost the magazine's answer to the newsreel styles of the time. The images spin out on paper in ways that still are quite striking and revolutionary – some in action montages, some in collage, some juxtaposed with almost surreal effect – and the book is over 300 pages, and is the closest you'll ever come to experiencing this landmark publication! Super-heavy, hardcover, and lavish artbook style presentation. Book

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!

Mayer HawthorneWhere Does This Door Go ... CD
Universal Republic, 2013. Used ... $6.99
A sweet little record from Mayer Hawthorne – put together with the kind of care and straightforward sound that so few folks have been using in recent years! Back at his start, you might have been tempted to think of Hawthorne as slightly ironic – an underground talent who could work at a level that rivaled some of the best blue-eyed soul singers of decades past, but who might have been doing the whole thing with a nod and a wink. Yet with a record like this, Mayer really comes across as a top-shelf talent – an artist with strength and confidence that really come through in his performance and overall presentation – less care for any posturing or the ways in which anyone might perceive him – and instead just a great dedication to reviving the kinds of sounds that used to make the west coast scene sparkle so much in the 70s! Production is wonderful – crisp enough to be contemporary, but full of plenty of old school touches on the instrumentation too – which really helps the lyrics resonate in a space between the fresh and the classic. Loads of hook-heavy numbers, and even if our kid cousins are downloading this one in years to come, we'll still be proud we were with Mayer from the start. Titles include "Back Seat Lover", "Allie Jones", "Wine Glass Woman", "Reach Out Richard", "Crime", "Corsican Rose", "Robot Love", "The Stars Are Ours", and "All Better". CD

Amazing images from decades of the Amazon princess – pulled from early Wonder Woman comics, publications in the silver age, and lots of later issues as well – all wrapped up in a really beautiful package that hardly deserves the "little" in its title! Instead, this thing pops like a much bigger art book – particularly Taschen's oversized volumes on DC, as this one's handled in a similar, but smaller manner – with wonderfully well-chosen pictures, and running commentary from Paul Levitz – who once ran DC, and has plenty of insight to offer. 190 pages, full color.

University Of Central Arkansas, 2017. New Copy ... $7.99
The coming of summer opens up the south as a territory for some of the greatest road trips you'll ever take in your life – and this issue really covers a lot of territory through fiction, poetry, and prose! As always with Oxford American, the writing is excellent – and the balance of subject matter is too – a combination of words and artwork that really show the thriving cultural scene in the south, in ways that few other publications can touch. Articles on the Southern Journeys theme include a look at the disappearing Outer Banks, hitchhiking with Joel Finsel, southern churches by Jamie Quatro, southern fishing by John O'Connor, and a trip to the southernmost part of Louisiana by Anne Gisleson. There's lots more too – and the magazine is always a great read, cover to cover! Magazine

PS Artbooks (UK), 1940. New Copy ... $9.99 47.99
A landmark science fiction publication from the earliest days of comic books – presented here in a heavy, hardbound format! The book is a great way to experience this otherwise-rare comic – and it's done in the heavy style of DC's Archive Editions, or the Marvel Masterworks volumes – both from those two more famous publishers. The stories here are all from the start of the 40s, and have kind of a stark, spare adventure mode that's a bit like early Timely Comics – with more of a Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon sort of space hero in the lead on most of them. And while the writing is sometimes a bit clunky, the artwork is fantastic – done by giants like Fletcher Hanks, Bob Powell, George Tuska, Sid Greene, and others – often with this style that's surprisingly creepy, and which shows up beautifully in this well-done publication. 288 pages, full color, on heavy paper, and hardcover.

PrinceMusicology ... CD
NPG, 2004. Used ... $12.99
A very strong album by the one-and-only Prince – maybe the catchiest, most rewarding full length by the royal one since the Revolution days! Musicology is most notable for the undeniable exuberance and joy that vibrates from the speakers, track after track. Prince seems to be having fun on this one, and as much as we admired the freaky prog funk of his previous album The Rainbow Children (even if it was pretty damn puzzling), it's great to have these big, Revolution style funk rock party numbers back in the cannon. All praise aside, we have to admit we're just a little bit baffled by the relentless hype and fawning, over-baked love this album has gotten in mainstream publications, but our beef is with toothless entertainment "journalists" and "critics", not with Prince. Highly recommended! Tracks include "Musicology", "A Million Days", "Life O' The Party" ,"Call My Name", "Cinnamon Girl" (not the Neil Young song), "What Do U Want Me 2 Do?", "On The Couch" and more. CD
