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. New Copy 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

A great little live set – recorded during the height of the group's popularity, kind of a mix of the modal spiritualism of their Strata East years, with some of the smoother electric playing of Columbia Records' jazz stable at the time. Stanley Cowell is on keyboards and kalimba, Alex Acuna plays percussion, and Mtume sings guest vocals on the track "For The Public". Titles include "A Sassy Samba", "Warm Valley", "Cloak & Dagger", and "Watergate Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

MomusPublic Intellectual – An Anthology 1986 to 2016 (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 80s/1990s/2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99
A wonderful collection of work from the always-great Momus – one of our favorite singer/songwriters of the past 40 years, a talent who really moves forward territory inspired by the work of Jacques Brel, Serge Gainsbourg, and George Brassens – and an artist who's given us so much incredible music during his career! The set really does a great job of spanning Momus' full career – from the acoustic start of his early Cherry Red albums and singles, to the open stylistic space of his music for Creation Records – where he shifted his ear for a catchy tune and sinister storyline into some really wonderful tracks – back to his return to Cherry Red and then formation of his own label – where he's continued to explore a fantastic array of topics with his undeniable wit. And in case you're wondering – the "public intellectual" title is a bit of a joke, taken from his classic "I Was A Maoist Intellectual" track from the 80s – but it's also somewhat fitting, given the incredible depth of his songwriting (although sadly, Momus has never hit the fame he deserves – which would make him a true public intellectual.) There's so many wonderful tracks on this set, we can't even count them all – and the collection's especially great for presenting some of the later Creation material that's been very hard to get in recent years. 3CD set features a whopping 56 tracks in all – plus notes on the tunes by Momus himself – and titles that include "Spacewalk", "Enlightenment", "The Ephephobe", "Paper Wraps Rock", "Flame Into Being", "The Homosexual", "How Do You Find My Sister", "Shaftesbury Avenue", "Summer Holiday 1999", "Ventriloquists & Dolls", "Born To Be Adored", "The Age Of Information", "London 1888", "The Art Creep", "The Hiker", "System Of Usher", "Widow Twanky", "Nervous Heartbeat", and "The Cheque's In The Post".

William S BurroughsCall Me Burroughs ... LP
ESP/Superior Viaduct, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
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!

✨✧ Al CohnBroadway ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1954. Used ... $5.99
A rare 1954 date from saxophonist Al Cohn – not issued to the public until this 1970 LP, but easily one of Al's best from the early days! The approach is straight and simple, something Al didn't always get – and the group's a quintet with Hal Stein on alto and Harvey Leonard on piano. The players aren't well known, but they keep the groove enough to let Al shine amazingly well on tenor – especially on the album's longer tracks, which have some nice nice solo space! Titles include 2 takes of "Broadway", plus "Suddenly It's Spring" and "Help Keep Your City Clean Blues". CD

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 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RCA/Analog Spark, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 29.99
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".

Arthur CrudupMusic Man Like Nobody Every Saw (5CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $124.99 174.99
One of the founding fathers of rock and roll – finally given his due in this massive box set! Arthur Crudup was a famous influence on Elvis Presley, but even without that fame, he was a hell of a bluesman on his own – a key part in the shift of styles that took place during the 40s – a mode that took Crudup's rural roots into more focus, with some of the tighter modes of the urban scene! This set shows that shift – and plenty more too – over the space of 124 tracks in all, which include Crudup's complete recordings for RCA and associated labels, as well as material for Trumpet, Checker, Ace, and Fire Records too – all packaged with a heavy, hardcover book that's almost worth the price of admission alone! The book features all-new notes, loads of photos and images, and a discography too – and the box finally takes Crudup's music from the scattered array of public domain and greatest hits CDs, and gives it the showcase it deserves.

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.

Takoma, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $34.99
John Fahey rewrites the sound of America – here in a wonderful set that stands as one of the real highlights from his Takoma Records years! Tracks are a mix of public domain material from America's past, mixed with plenty of Fahey originals – and all material receives both fantastic Fahey arrangements and performance – with a sublime tone that's filled with color, life, and lots of dark little corners as well. Echoes of older string and blues modes come into the mix – but with a very contemporary, modernist expression – as John reworks an older version of American to balance a country forever changed by the 60s. Titles include "The Voice Of The Turtle", "Knoxville Blues", and "Mark 1:15". LP, Vinyl record album

Vivien GoldmanResolutionary – Songs 1979 to 1982 ... CD
99 Records/Staubgold (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
A wonderful collection of overlooked work from Vivien Goldman – a singer who's perhaps best known for her work in Flying Lizards, but who also had ties to other important post-punk acts of the time – including The Slits, On-U Sound, and Public Image – all of whom help out on these tracks! The music has a sweet blend of dubby rhythms and some colder currents too – and Goldman's lyrics are often a bit more personal than her music with Flying Lizards although no less compelling, too. John Lydon, Steve Beresford, and Keith Levene provide instrumentation on the first three tracks – "Lauderette", "Private Armies", and "PA Dub" – from an EP that was released on Rough Trade and 99 Records. Next up are the tracks "Her Story" and "The Window" – done by The Flying Lizards, with work from Beresford on piano and Viv Albertine on guitars. Last are three tracks from Goldman's work with Chantage – even dubbier, with some help from Adrian Sherwood, on titles that include "It's Only Money", "Same Thing Twice", and "Tu M'Fais Rire". CD also includes a bonus interview! CD

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.

Prestel (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 39.95
East Germany may be a thing of the past, but the separate slice of the German nation lives again in this beautiful book of propaganda posters from the 20th Century – large, full color images that present the era at its most striking – and showcase East German efforts to shape public sentiment through the visual arts! The book is heavy on posters from the post-war years – images that have a lot of the feel of wartime propaganda, but turned towards the socialist themes of the time – and while these ideas persist, the changing decades also showcase some stronger government programs too – a growing pride in separatism, mixed with efforts in education, labor, and health care. Each page features a large, full-color reproduction of a vintage poster – over 120 posters in all – and although the book features propaganda right up until German reunification, the bulk of the work is from the end of the war through the 60s. 159 pages, oversize, hardcover, and in full color.

JBsFood For Thought ... LP
People/Get On Down, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 24.98
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!

Mosaic, 1920s/1930s/Early 40s. New Copy 6 CDs ... $101.99 102.00
An incredible journey in music – one that documents the importance of pianist James P Johnson in a variety of different settings – from the earliest years of jazz, right on up through the boogie woogie and swing generations as well! The set is exactly the sort that Mosaic Records can do best – as it brings together material from a variety of different labels, almost all of which was originally released on the 78rpm format – which makes the process far more of an historical achievement than just a collection of previously-issued albums! Instead, the music here comes from over 50 different sessions – some which feature Johnson on solo piano, some with vocalists such as Rosa Henderson, Martha Copeland, Roy Evans, Ethel Waters, Clarence Williams, Lavinia Turner, Bessie Smith, and others – and still more with a variety of important ensembles of the 20s and 30s – whose music Johnson certainly helped inform. The package also features key performances with Williams' group – and as is standard with Mosaic, the notes and session details alone are worth the price of admission. The 6CD set features a whopping 158 titles in all – all beautifully remastered, and presented with far more than you'll ever find in one of those shoddy public domain sets. A true testament to the range of Johnson's music in these years – and long overdue! CD

A stone classic from the west coast scene – and a record that just seems to get better and better over the years! What sounded like a disappointing, and way too calculatedly provocative follow-up to Straight Outta Compton back in 1991 now sounds to us like the peak of Dr. Dre's career as a producer. The wall of sound here is massive – and dare we say it, almost up to par with the Bomb Squad's work with Public Enemy and the expatriate Ice Cube at the time. Plus, with the passing of the years, we can now find a lot more darkly humorous moments in all of the ultra-violent, damn near Clockwork Orange level mischief. Titles include "Real Niggaz Don't Die", "Niggaz 4 Life", "Appetite For Destruction", "Findum, F*ckum, & Flee", and many more. LP, Vinyl record album

Fantasy/OJC, 1950. Used ... $2.99
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

An insane document of the early years of Pink Floyd – a beautiful collection that may well be one of the most complete, elaborate box sets ever created! The set features an insane amount of music – and maybe is more than the group members themselves can remember from the time – presented here on 10 CDs, 9 DVDs, 8 blu-ray discs, and even 5 7" singles! The music spins out in many formats – and includes a huge number of rare concert performances, European television material, BBC recordings, demos, and more – almost all of which has never been formally issued to the public. This isn't one of those "best of" box sets, or one of those full catalog releases – and instead the whole thing really plumbs the deepest depths of the group at this genius early moment. If you don't know these pre-Dark Side Of The Moon years of the group, you're really in for a treat – as there's an earthier, grittier quality to Pink Floyd at this point – from the madness of the fuzzy early tracks with Syd Barrett, to the more extrapolated instrumental jams that followed, to some of the surprisingly intimate songs that came into play before the group achieved more oblique modes of presenting themselves. The set also includes the full feature films More, Obscured By Clouds, and Live At Pompeii – and the box includes 7 different books, 42 bits of memorabilia, and 100 photos too! CD

An amazing package of music – not just the original two albums of Lalo Schifrin music that were issued from the Mission Impossible TV show – but a massive 6CD collection that brings together work from all seven seasons of the program – a huge amount of material that's never been issued to the public at all, by a range of composers we never even knew worked for the show! Over the years, the spirit of Schifrin's original style was greatly expanded – still with groovy cop and crime modes that mature nicely into the 70s, but also with some richer soundtrack elements that really flesh things out – and which take on special character from show to show, depending on the composers! In addition to material by Schifrin, the set also features passages from jazzy talents who include Jerry Fielding, Don Ellis, Benny Golson, and Duane Tatro – as well as contributions from other soundtrack legends like Gerald Fried, Walter Scharf, Jack Urbont, Robert Drasnin, and Richard Hazard – and the whole thing fetaures six very overstuffed CDs – each almost to the brim with music – in a box with an additional booklet of notes!

✨✧ 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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... 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

Jonathan BarliVIP – The Mad World Of Virgil Partch (hardcover) ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2013. New Copy ... $11.99 49.99
A fantastic book on the mad artwork of Virgil Partch – an overlooked mid-century illustrator, and one whose material had all the biting wit of Mad Magazine legends like Don Martin or Bill Elder! Partch sometimes worked for higher-class publications – and specialized in satiric cartoons that were as visually sharp as their commentary – but as the years expanded, Virgil worked on record covers, advertising, paperback covers, and other formats – including some great books of his own! All those formats and more are included here – in a book that's got a layout that really does justice to both the material, and the detailed biography of Partch by the author. There's also some passages at the end that include some of Virgil's satiric writings with his images – and the book is 208 pages, hardcover, with both color and black and white images. Book

Ivan BrunettiAesthetics – A Memoir (hardcover) ... Book
Yale University Press, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99 25.00
A beautiful collection of images by Ivan Brunetti – a cartoonist we've followed for decades here on the Chicago scene, and have watched with great appreciation as he's gotten worldwide attention for his work in the New Yorker and numerous other publications over the years! Brunetti's an amazing individual, with a character that goes even deeper than his artwork – and this book is something of a memoir, told by Ivan in words that go alongside the images – little stories about their creation, or his own place on the planet at the time – with some cartoons, some cover illustrations, and lots of obscure drawings, sculptures, and physical objects that are a real discovery, even if you've bought his comix and other books. The layout is great – as illuminating as the contents – and the hardcover book is color throughout. 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

DJ ShhhhhCentral European Music Steps Ahead (paperback) ... Book
Du Books (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... $36.99
Here's a book that will really open up some new record-digging territory – as it serves up hundreds of releases from the European scene of the past decade or two – material that mostly comes from the Eastern European underground, despite the "central" in the title – and which provides a much-needed look at sounds coming from Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic! The book is in the style of other Japanese "disc guide" books – and has images of every record cover, along with titles and release dates – plus a review of the music in Japanese. Much of the book is in color, but some is in black and white – and although we can't read the reviews, we can understand the helpful chapters that condense the music – titled "From Classic To Groove", "Both Sides Of Evergrooves", "Un Certain Regard", and "Around Key Persons". There's a number of jazz releases inside, plus lots of other styles too – and the book is one that will definitely open you up to a new realm of music. 190 pages, softover, color and black and white.

FrankensteinFrankenstein Vol 6 – December 1948 to November 1952 – Issues 16 to 21 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $10.99 47.99
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

Drew Hardin & The Editors Of Hot Rod MagazineHot Rod Magazine – All The Covers (hardcover) ... Book
Motorbooks, 2010. New Copy ... $8.99 35.00
A hefty look at Hot Rod magazine – from the time the publication started in the postwar years, through its big time in the 60s, to its surprisingly durable run up to more recent years too! The book promises all the covers of all the issues through that run – and it definitely delivers that, but adds in way more than just a simple pastiche of cover art – with year-by-year details on the magazine, and a manner of presentation that makes things very lively – through other image, and a focus on some of the ultra-cool images from the classic years. 255 pages, hardcover, and heavy and glossy throughout!

Guerssen (Spain), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99
If the title doesn't give it away, the contents certainly do – a heady helping of articles that definitely live up to the psychedelic promise on the cover! 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!

Bernd JonkmannsRecord Stores – Tribute to Record Stores – 400 Pages, 190 Stores, 36 Countries, 5 Continents ... Book
Seltmann+Soehne, 2016. New Copy ... $46.99 59.00
Call us biased, but we think this is one hell of an amazing book – a beautiful journey through dozens of record stores around the world – served up in these amazing color photographs that get to the core of what makes a great record store so unique! Bernd Jonkmanns really did a great job – and the book is filled with images that are every bit as beautiful as the one on the cover – photographs that not just focus on the treasures inside the stores, but capture the unique spaces, and the way the music is presented – as each individual store is completely different, and has their own take on the way they put forward their records and other objects. The book is huge, and is completely essential to anyone who's ever loved being in or around record stores – as Bernd really captures the way the stores can immediately excite a true record shopper, and his pictures already have us chomping at the bit to do more record shopping outside of Dusty Groove! Plus, the whole thing's a much-needed document of a vanishing art form – as there's more than a few shops here that have closed since Jonkmann's began the project – some he's noted, some that have closed after publication of the book. The whole thing's super-heavy and oversized – almost 400 pages, full color, and completely worth the high price tag. Heck, we love the whole thing to death – even though they completely forgot to include us! Book
