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) ... CD
Universal (UK), 1979. New Copy ... About December 10, 2016 (delayed)
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". Three records that play at 45rpm – for amazing fidelity! CD

Def Jam, 1990. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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.

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".

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

✨✧ Larry MillettMurder Has A Public Face – Crime & Punishment In The Speed Graphic Era (hardcover) ... Book
Borealis, 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Gritty crime photographs from the 40s – all pulled from the files of the St Paul Pioneer Press in the Twin Cities – which turned out to be a pretty dangerous place at the time! There's some great shots in here that rival the work of Weegee in New York – bodies and crime scenes, presented in stark, bleak, unabashed black and white photographs – and other images detail the aftermath of the crimes – the criminals and courtrooms, plus other images as well. But the book's also not just photographs, as it includes plenty of true crime details on the events – as well as the photographic journalism culture of the time – presented in a heavy, artbook-styled volume. 118 pages, hardcover, and filled with black and white images.

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 ... $9.99
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

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.

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. Amazing! Paperback, 200+ pages. Book

The photos themselves are more than enough – and include lots of less-iconic, very interesting images that are really wonderful – with some especially nice ones as the boys start to get a bit shaggy in 1966. The timeline structure makes the whole thing especially nice – almost as a long visual documentary on the group, in both public and private scenes – with economically-used text to illuminate the moments. 320 pages, oversize, hardcover, and with color and black and white photos throughout!

JBsFood For Thought ... LP
People, 1972. Very Good ... $49.99
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!

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

Pye/BMG, Late 60s. New Copy 10LP ... $184.99 199.98
Incredible music from The Kinks – albums we return to again and again over the years, and which never fail to delight and amaze us! In the short span of time covered by these records, The Kinks went from being another blues-inspired UK band, to becoming some of the sharpest social critics of their day – Ray Davies' razor-sharp wit in the lead on vocals, and deftly-turned tunes that could make the British public hum along gladly, even when they were the subject of the joke! The box presents 8 classic albums, all in brilliant mono – some of which are pretty rare in these mixes – the full albums Kinks, Kinda Kinks, Kink Kontroversy, Face To Face, Something Else, Live At Kelvin Hall, Village Green Preservation Society, and Arthur – all with the original long UK track listings. The set also features the double album The Kinks – a collection of singles and hits that was issued in the same stretch, and includes an additional 25 tracks on 2LPs. Box is beautiful – super-heavy, with a flip-off top – and all albums have original artwork, and are packaged with a special 48 page book that features never-seen photos, and new interview material!

The band are as tight as they ever were – and they're rolling like a non-stop locomotive with a horn-heavy groove on classics like "Jungle Boogie" and "Hollywood Swinging", while also showing hints of their strong mellow future on the cut "Wild & Peaceful". The album also includes the massive two part jammer "Funky Stuff" and "More Funky Stuff", plus "This Is You, This Is Me" and "Life Is What You Make It". CD

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.

An insanely wonderful legacy in music – almost all of the important solo albums by Lou Reed – packaged here in one fantastically-done deluxe set! The sounds alone are worth the price of admission – music that begins with early post-Velvet Underground material recorded for RCA – with Reed reinventing himself as a gender-twisting poet of the New York scene – to a run of overlooked albums for Arista, where Reed deepened his skills as a songwriter – to an 80s return to RCA, where the singer emerged with a new sort of mature, positive outlook! Lou's a genius at every step of the way – and continues that here with his supervision of all the albums, and this overall package – done before his passing away, and his last legacy on record. Hal Willner also helped put the project together, and contributes beautiful notes to the 80 page hardbound book – which is filled with rare photos, art and other items from Reed's personal collection – and the heavy LP-sized box also features five 8" x 10" prints, and a reproduction of a rare RCA promotional poster. Features the albums Lou Reed, Transformer, Berlin, Rock & Roll Animal, Sally Can't Dance, Metal Machine Music, Coney Island Baby, Rock & Roll Heart, Street Hassle, Take No Prisoners, The Bells, Growing Up In Public, Blue Mask, Legendary Hearts, New Sensations, and Mistrial.

MoWest/Reel Music/P&C, Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
The incredible lost album from the group Sisters Love – material slated for release in the early 70s, but never saw the light of day, save for a handful of singles – a mix of rootsier southern soul and impeccable west coast funk styles, finally brought to light and with bonus tracks, to boot! Sisters Love came to Motown/MoWest at a transitional time for the label(s), who sent the group on tour, released a rare few singles in the US & UK, but didn't get the group over into the public consciousness the way it deserved. Soul Jazz UK released a stellar compilation of great Sisters Love recordings, but the complete album that they recorded for MoWest that never saw an official release remained in the dark – until now! Reel Music/P&C Records dove into Motown's vaults and came out with the 10 tracks intended for the With Love album in the early 70s – and pulls together 5 more. 8 of the 15 tracks have never been released officially before this essential release – and each one is a straight up stunner! Great songs that were written, produced & arranged by the cream of the crop of soulful talents – Willie Hutch, Hal Davis, Gene Page, Gloria Jones & Pamela Sawyer – but this is the Sisters Love show, and they shine brilliantly! Titles include the amazing "Fast Mack" (purportedly submitted for the soundtrack to The Mack – and it's funky enough!), "Communication", "Mr Fix-It Man", "I'm Learning To Trust My Man", "Giving Up", "I Ain't That Easy To Lose", ""Do What You Gotta Do", "Sweet Inspiration", "Give Me Your Love" and more.

Galen SmithNew York D!ck – Lewd Drawings & Obnoxious Comments On New York City Advertising Posters (hardcover) ... Book
Mark Batty, 2010. New Copy ... $0.99 24.95
Pornographic graffiti is nothing new – archeologists have even found it in the ruins of Rome – but in contemporary New York, where billboards and posters lurk at every turn in the subway, the practice has been elevated to an art form – as you'll see by the images in this book! The title's pretty apt – as most of the images here feature a certain member of the male anatomy, scribbled alongside or on top of a more serious image – usually in some public advertisement, which is then completely dismantled by the addition of the organ! Some images feature text instead of image – and taken together, the book almost offers a portrait of rebellion amidst the commercial landscape – bursts of comedic energy that topple the towers of Madison Avenue with just a few quick scribbles of a pen! Book is hardcover, full color throughout, and also offers up images of the larger poster from which the image is taken. Book

Alton DelmoreTruth Is Stranger Than Publicity – The Delmore Brothers (paperback) ... Book
Country Music Foundation, 1977/1995. New Copy ... $5.99 14.98
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

✨✧ 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 ... 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.

Matt BakerCanteen Kate (hardcover) ... Book
CSP, Early 50s. New Copy ... $4.99 28.99
Rare work from the great Matt Baker – a cartoonist best known for his sexy superhero Phantom Lady in the 40s, and for a number of other "good girl" features during the golden age of comics! Canteen Kate comes from a few years later – all these strips ran in the first few years of the fifties – and features a lovely lass in short pants, as the only female on a Marine base – with the kind of antics you might expect! Kate's a bit less exposed than some of Baker's earlier heroines, but more than makes up for the lack of skin with a great sense of humor – wit that wasn't present in some of Matt's earlier work, and which really makes these stories come together. The whole thing's a bit like a 50s version of Milt Caniff's Male Call, in comic book form. Stories appeared in the St John publications Fightin Marines and Canteen Kate – and the book is 160 pages, full color, and 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

✨✧ Patrick Cowley & Candida RoyalleCandida Cosmica EP ... LP
Dark Entries, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Some of the weirdest, wildest work you'll ever hear from Patrick Cowley – very different than his 80s club music, although still very electronic overall! The music here is from a very early point in Cowley's career – recorded as experimental pieces with singer Candida Royale, who vocalizes along with Patrick's analogue electronics – in ways that are maybe a bit like Cathy Berberian singing with Luciano Berio electronics – but a lot weirder and more abstract overall! The work's never been released publicly before – and is presented here with a cool booklet of detailed notes. Titles include "Tantum Ergo", "Elementals", "Candida Cosmica", and "Tomato Song".

Jaro FabryArt Of Fashion, Style, & Hollywood In The 1930s & 1940s ... Book
Hermes, 2014. New Copy ... $4.99 29.99
Cartoons, magazine covers, and other illustrations from the fantastic Jaro Fabray – pulled from a range of publications in the 30s and 40s, and laid out alongside with other archival drawings as well! The book's as beautiful as its cover – and offers up a modern take on a changing American mode – leaner, cleaner ways of presenting the body and the beautiful – with a style that's somewhere in a lineage that runs from Peter Arno up to the contemporary work of Seth. There's a good deal of wit in Fabray's images – especially in his juxtaposition of characters and class – and the book is 112 pages, softcover, in full color throughout. Book

PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... $10.99 47.99
Excellent work from 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! Briefer drew the main stories – and other work is by Mort Meskin, Marvin Stein, and others. 200 pages, hardcover, and full color! Book

Gang Of FourSolid Gold (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 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".

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!

Mayer HawthorneHow Do You Do ... CD
Universal Republic, 2011. Used ... $7.99
Mayer Hawthorne moves to the majors on How Do You Do – bringing that fun, neo classic bedroom soul sound he did so well on Stones Throw with him – pretty much picking up right where Strange Arrangement left off! The Mayer Hawthorne story was a strange one from the start – white producer/DJ crafting real deal moody, sultry throwback soul under a pseudonym that gets him signed to Stones Throw. The best news, really, is that he's still doing what we loved on the Stones Throw LP and singles. Skirting throwback Motown and indie soul conventions, but winking ever so slyly at them, making strings sound scratchy, warm and well-worn, subtle horns to sooth and stir, his own vocals layered for a group-like effect. Bonus points for his use of the superstar cameo – he brings Snoop Dogg in to SING, not to serve as an obligatory rhyme cameo. Well played, Mayer Hawthorne! Includes "Get To Know You", "A Long Time", "Can't Stop" with Snoop, "Finally Falling", "Hooked", "You Called Me", "No Strings", "Dreaming", "The Walk" and more. CD

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

A mighty nice book on the 1967 Monterey International Pop Festival – a key precursor to Woodstock, and an important California music moment during the Summer Of Love! The book is huge, and filled with photos and other images – almost working as a printed documentary on the famous weekend of music – along with recollections of musicians who were involved with the even – a list of dozens that includes Pete Townshend, Roger Daltry, Bob Weir, Al Kooper, Booker T Jones, Steve Cropper, and many others! In addition to all the historical information from these artists, and photos of artists on the stage, the book's also awash with images from underground publications, posters, ads, and lots lot more. 255 pages, full color, hardcover, and oversize.
