Dean Budnick & Josh BaronTicket Masters – The Rise Of The Concert Industry & How The Public Got Scalped ... Book
Plume, 2012. New Copy ... $5.99 17.00
Ever wonder why you've got to shell out so much money to see live music? This book tells the tale of the amazing rise in concert prices from the late 60s onward – and the near-monopoly on music by giant forces like Live Nation and Ticketmaster, and the way they control the contemporary concert environment. The authors have had years of experience in the industry – including lots of work with Relix magazine – and they trace the growth of the concert giants from surprisingly small local production efforts, who have grown today to become the forces who seem to be the gatekeepers at so many musical events. Given their ties to Relix and its jamband underground, the authors actually have some optimistic things to say, too – so the whole thing's not just a bleak look at the future. The book is softcover, almost 400 pages, and very densely written. Book

Public EnemyApocalypse 91... The Enemy Strikes Black (green vinyl) ... LP
Def Jam, 1991. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99 29.99
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".

Public Enemy, EU & OthersDo The Right Thing – Soundtrack ... LP
Motown, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 24.99
The classic soundtrack to Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing – lead, of course, by Public Enemy's "Fight The Power" – and beyond that is a pretty wonderful, and not always as intense cross-section of some of the finer urban soul and New Jack Swing, circa '89, breezy vocal-centric R&B, a touch of Latin and Afro-Carribbean pop. The Bed-Stuy melting pot bubbles over to tragic consequences in the film, but the diverse soundtrack is plenty harmonious, and sounds fresh to this day. Includes "My Fantasy" by Teddy Riley featuring Guy, "Never Explain Love" by Al Jarreau, "Party Hearty" by EU, "Tu Y Yo" by Ruben Blades, "Can't Stand It" by Steel Pulse and "Don't Shoot Me" by Take 6.

Public Image Ltd.Metal Box (3 x 12" EP set) ... LP
EMI (UK), 1979. Very Good+ 3LPs ... $129.99
A chilling album that still makes our spines quiver, even after 20 years! This is probably the most perfect realization of the ideas that John Lydon was trying to explore with PIL, and the set's an incredible mix of throbbing creepy basslines, pounding drums, and edgey guitar parts. The cut "Pop Tones" is worth the price of the LP alone, but on this double length set, you get more tracks, including "No Radio", "Albatross", "Careering", and "Memories". Way better than the Sex Pistols ever were – and proof that the best music from the punk generation came after 1977. Three records that play at 45rpm – for amazing fidelity! LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownThere It Is ... LP
Polydor, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Raw power and righteous energy from James Brown – a set that still has all the best funk elements of his longer-form albums of the time, but which also packs an even stronger political message too! The vibe of the record is clear from the image on the cover – the most powerful since Payback – and James is even more focused in the lyrics, which bite harder than some of his other commentary of the period – while still allowing the JBs plenty of room to serve up some heavy funk in the process! Titles include the classics "Public Enemy #1" and "King Heroin", both hard soul political tracks – and the funkier side of The Godfather is represented by the killer cuts "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothing" and James own version of "I Need Help" (which was also recorded by Bobby Byrd). The album also includes a great duet with Vicki Anderson on "Who Am I", the excellent title cut "There It Is", and a surprisingly nice version of "Never Can Say Goodbye" – as well as the single "I'm A Greedy Man".

Frederick Burr OpperHappy Hooligan – The Original Born Loser (hardcover) ... Book
NBM, 1900s/Early 10s/2008. New Copy ... $5.99 24.95
Beautiful reproductions of vintage Happy Hooligan strips from the start of the 20th Century – some of the first and best newspaper comic work, all presented here in full color! The book features almost 100 strips that each follow the six-panel style used by Frederick Opper – and in addition to a manic visual style, they also offer a surprising insight into class conflict and public space in urban scenes in the early part of the century. The book begins with some biographical information on Opper and the strip – then rolls into some nice oversized horizontal pages that really preserve the smaller details in the drawings and text. 110 pages, hardcover, full color.

✨✧ Cabildo's ThreeYuxtaposicion ... CD
Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
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!

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

A much better book than you'd guess from the title – and a wealth of wonderful images from the biggest city in England! As with the similar New York volume, the book lays out snapshots of great little visual jokes in London – strange store signs, odd posters, mistakes on public buildings, weird graffiti, and more – all in this humorous portrait of the city! Images are full color, mostly shot by the author, and work together in a great way to build up their power as you flip through the book. Book

Dee DanielsIntimate Conversations ... CD
Origin, 2014. Used ... $2.99
Dee Daniels is the kind of singer who really takes us back to our precious time spent in jazz clubs on the south side of Chicago a few decades back – during the days when the old school jazz singer seemed to be a dying breeed, as few labels really understood how to capture their genius or present them to the public. Daniels has an easygoing, relaxed way of putting over a tune – yet still manages to come across with a rich, soulful vibe throughout – whether singing her own great lyrics on one tune, or working through a mix of well-chosen tracks that have a lot more variety than just the usual standards set – the kind of material that a singer like Dee can really make her own, especially with help from a soulful small combo that includes Cyrus Chestnut on piano, Houston Person on tenor, and Wycliffe Gordon on trombone! Titles include "4AM", "Get Here", "Come Try My Love", "Don't Touch Me", "A Song For You", and "I Wish You Love". CD

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!

Kilmarnock, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99
Funky madness from the mind of Galt MacDermot – the second volume of rare work from his deep deep vaults! Galt's best known to most of the world as the man who wrote the music for Hair, but to us beatheads, the best stuff is his rare work – a wealth of incredible drumbreaks, basslines, piano riffs, and quirky rhythms – recorded for years on his own, finally now getting out to the public! This album's almost better than the first volume – as it's filled with stripped down instrumental cuts that feature plenty of drums (by either Idris Muhammad or Bernard Purdie), electric keyboards, and other instrumentation like flute or guitar. A few cuts have vocals, but even those are nice and funky – and honestly, the album's maybe even better all the way through than most of Galt's classic albums from the old days! Titles include "Ba Ba Black Baby", "Lost Dreams", "Ghetto Suite Medley", "DD 2 03", "Wurly", "Water Fight", and "Cleanly & Pump". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie ParkerBird – Savoy Recordings Master Takes ... LP

A nicely distilled collection pulled together for issue in the mid 70s, of Charlie Parker's work for Savoy Records – done between the years 1944-1948, with some of the best talents in the bop business! Some of the other Savoy Parker sets have been a bit too overstuffed with alternate takes – and this one nicely changes that by focusing only on the material that made it out to the public as 78rpm recordings at the time. The double LP set features a total of 30 tracks – with titles that include "Tiny's Tempo", "Barbados", "Constellation", "Marmaduke", "Steeplechase", "Chasin The Bird", "Billie's Bounce", "Romance Without Finance", "Perhaps", and "Parker's Mood".

Posthumous issue of an early 50s live set by Charlier Parker – one of the many that were rushed to the public in the years after his early death. The set, like many of the other live ones from the time, isn't recorded that well – but the music is still pretty wonderful. There's a real focus on Bird in the way the microphone was set up – so although you hear the rest of the band comping in the background, the album almost works like a session of solo sax work by Parker – as his alto is right out front in the mix, playing with a faltering style at times – but in a way that only seems to deepen our vision of his genius. Players include Red Rodney on trumpet and Al Haig on piano – and titles include "Ornithology", "Star Eyes", "Visa", "I Didn't Know What Time It Was", and "Confirmation". CD

Charlie ParkerCharlie Parker (Bird On 52nd Street/Bird At St Nicks) ... LP
Jazz Workshop/Prestige, 1948. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
Two rare Charlie Parker albums in a single set! First up is Bird On 52nd Street – one of the more obscure Charlie Parker sessions of the 40s – at least in the original release! The material was recorded in 1948, on a home tape recorder, but not issued until after his death – part of a huge wave of Charlie Parker material that hit the market at the end of the 50s and start of the 60s! The sound here is quite raw – made even more so by the recording quality – but it also offers up a good illustration of the sheer power of Bird back in the day, the kind of bold, bracing energy that made even more than the regular jazz world sit up and take notice. The group's a quintet – with Miles Davis on trumpet, Duke Jordan on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Max Roach on drums – and there's been a few tape tricks in the mastering, in order to come up with a better version of some of the recordings. Tracks are short – in true bebop format – and titles include "Night In Tunisia", "Dizzy Atmosphere", "Out Of Nowhere", "My Old Flame", "How High The Moon", "This Time The Dream's On Me", "Hot House", and "Chasin The Bird". Next is Bird At St Nicks – a posthumous issue of an early 50s live set by Charlier Parker – one of the many that were rushed to the public in the years after his early death. The set, like many of the other live ones from the time, isn't recorded that well – but the music is still pretty wonderful.

Muhal Richard Abrams & Roscoe MitchellSpectrum ... CD
Mutable Music, 2009. Used ... $7.99
A beautiful Spectrum from Muhal Richard Abrams & Roscoe Mitchell – recorded at Philharmonic Hall in Ostrava, Czech Republic – and the first ever recordings to feature Abrams & Mitchell working with an full scale orchestral setting! The pair plays off each other wonderfully on the opener "Romu", an improvisational duo piece with a delicate, quiet and lovely opening movement that builds in tension and skillful interplay between Abrams's piano and Mitchell's sax as it goes on. The 3 part Mitchell composition "Non-Cognitive Aspects Of The City" with a poem by Joseph Jarman and the 17+ minute closer "Merger Tone", composed by Abrams are done with the Janacek Philharmonic orchestra with conductor Petr Kotik – and it's a quite an experience to hear the compositions of these beacons of the AACM movement in a classical setting – and it really works well.

PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s/2014. New Copy Book ... $9.99 47.99
Stunning work from the glory days of the 50s horror comic – issues of the legendary publication Adventures Into The Unknown – one of the first and most important comics to plumb the depths of supernatural and science fiction! The publication inspired countless imitators, but was always a cut above the rest – thanks to a careful editorial policy that really focused on strong stories and high quality artwork – at a level that makes these issues a delight to read all these many years later! This volume, like others in the PS Artbooks series, features beautiful color reproductions of issues that would cost you a fortune to buy in the original – all wrapped up in a high quality, hardcover package. Artists in these issues include Ogden Whitney, Ken Bald, George Wilhelms, Al Camy, Charlie Sultan, King Ward, Art Gates, Rocco Mastroserio, and others – and stories include "The Hands Of Darkness", "Ship Of Death", "The Ghouls Behind The Glass", "The Thing Without A Face", and lots more. 288 pages, hardcover and full color.

Apple & The Three OrangesFree & Easy – The Complete Works 1970 to 1975 ... CD
Now Again, Early 70s. Used ... $10.99
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that there's more 60s rawness on the record than you'd get from bigger-label funk at the time – as Ed "Apple" Nelson still works here with a mostly underground vibe! Ed plays drums – which are mighty hard on most numbers – and his vocals have this offbeat, off-kilter, over the top quality that almost reminds us a bit of the Hank Ballard/James Brown recordings for late 60s King – particularly in the way that Nelson's completely unbridled with his energy. The whole thing's great – one of the best funky collections we've heard in years – and presented with a rich amount of notes and historical information too. Titles include "Free & Easy (parts 1 & 2)", "Moon Light", "Curse Upon The World", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Down Home Publicity", "True Love Will Never Die", "Gotta Stand For Something (parts 1 & 2)", and "I'll Give You A Ring". CD features a massive 52 page booklet, too! CD

Gustav BromBrom Stream ... LP
Supraphon (Czech Republic), 1966. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Some of the most modern work we've ever heard from groundbreaking Eastern European bandleader Gustav Brom – a set that's filled with sharp edges and experimental moments – but which also shows some of the usual Brom swing we've come to love over the years! There's a Kenton-esque love of tone colors going on here – a great sense of placement for the horns, so that they shift over each other wonderfully to create new sounds and tensions, which are then relaxed as the players break into freer solos. The "stream" in the title might be a reference to third stream jazz, but Brom's approach is a lot less academic here – and his group on the album features trumpet, tenor, alto, vibes, baritone sax, and piano. Titles include "Suite About Water", "Study For A Quarter Tone Trumpet", "Silver Spider", "Black Tears", "Poseidon", "Conflicts", and "Hallelujah Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy original pressing – in great shape, save for some light wear on the cover.)

Gustav BromPozdrav Orchestru ... LP
Supraphon (Czech Republic), 1960s/1970s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A sweet little double-length collection of work by one of the hippest bandleaders of the Eastern European scene – the mighty Gustav Brom, whose style is right up there with the best work on Saba/MPS from the late 60s and early 70s! Like some of the bigger groups on that label, Brom's always goes for a hipper, more contemporary approach to rhythm – sometimes funky, sometimes modal – always hard-driving, and filled with creative instrumental explosions. A number of tracks feature electric elements in the rhythms – keyboards, guitar, or bass – and players on the record include some of the greats of Brom's scene – such as Bosko Petrovic on vibes, Peter Herbholzheimer on trombone, Ack Van Rooyen on trumpet, and Aura Ursicenau on vocals. 2LP set features Brom recordings that are mostly from the 70s, plus a few more from the 60s – with titles that include "Vzpominka", "Jazz Bolero", "Ve Zvuku Trubky", "Male Rondo Pro Trubku", "Vztek", "Non Stop", "Kontury", "Vsichni Lide Bratry Jsou", "Tanecek Pro Dva", "Nocni Let", "Predstavy A Skutecnost", and "Model".

PS Artbooks (UK), 1952/1953. New Copy Book ... $9.99 47.99
One of the amazing horror comics published by Harvey Comics in the pre-code years of the early 50s – and a publication that was noted for its wealth of creepy stories and equally chilling images! Harvey may have been the home to Casper the ghost, but on the horror tip they were something else entirely – publisher of some of the most gruesome material in the years before comics got cleaned up in the mid 50s – with some of the best artists as well! Some of these stories are a clear attempt to copy the more famous style of EC Comics, but the Chamber Of Chills material also has a charm that's all its own – a rough approach to stories, which often leads to wonderfully lurid artwork – handled in this volume by Rudy Palais, Lee Elias, Rocke Mastroserio, Bob Powell, Don Perlin, Al Avison, Howard Nostrand, Jack Abel, and others – in stories that include "The Spider Man", "Vengeful Corpse", "Nightmare Of Doom", "The Living Mummies", "Black Passion", "Terrorvision", and more. 256 pages, full color, and hardcover.

Ericka Blount DanoisLove Peace & Soul – Behind The Scenes Of America's Favorite Dance Show – Soul Train Classic Moments ... Book
Back Beat, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99 24.99
One of the greatest soul music TV shows ever (and one that originated in Chicago, too!) – presented here in deep detail with loads of interesting stories and anecdotes too! The book's almost a more personal history of the show than a technical one – but that's OK with us, because it really gets at the tales behind those iconic images on the screen – and the all-pro presentation of Don Cornelius too. And, in addition to the main body of the book, the publication also includes this massive show-by-show list of appearances – for 37 seasons of Soul Train, including the later rerun years – with details on the performers and dates for each show, in a section that's over 50 pages in length! The book also includes some nice color images in the middle, and is 243 pages, softcover. Book

Michael Dowers, EditorNewave – The Underground Mini Comix of the 1980s (hardcover) ... Book
Fantagraphics, 1980s/2010. New Copy ... $6.99 24.99
Underground comix ruled the 60s, and indie presses sprung up in the 70s, but the real revolution in the 80s came from home-made mini comics – often printed at copy shops, and folded into these great little self-distributed publications with no rules at all! The mini comics revolution led to a surprisingly great new wave of creativity – images and words that were often tied to the punk underground of the time, and which had a very different aesthetic than the hippie styles that held sway in the 60s and 70s. This massive volume reproduces loads of the best moments of that generation, in the same size in which they were circulated – with almost 900 pages of black and white comix, and work by a huge amount of artists who include Jeff Gaither, Daniel Clowes, JR Williams, Tom Christopher, Meher Dada, Par Holman, Jim Siergey, Rick Geary, Artie Romero, Al Greenier, Brad Foster, Michael Roden, Bob X, Steve Willis, and many others.

Fela & Africa 70JJD (Johnny Just Drop)/Unnecessary Begging ... CD
Wrasse, 1976/1977. Used ... $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, 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 on 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
