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

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

Public Image Ltd.Second Edition ... LP
Island, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
One of the greatest moments ever from the mighty John Lydon – a record that maybe blows away all other albums by Public Image – and which also stands strongly next to the work of the Sex Pistols, but in a very different way! Lydon is quite far from punk rock roots here – and instead works in this bassy, dubby, trippy blend that's served up strongly by the bass work of Jah Wobble – very influenced by Jamaican music, but playing in a style that's got a very different vibe – and quite different from more familiar late 70s attempts to mix punk and reggae. Instead, Wobble and Lydon use the mode as this dark wash of sound – sparkling with weird guitar sounds from Keith Levine, and layered with these haunting lyrics on madness and paranoia – much more dark poetry than anything Lydon ever gave us. The track "Poptones" is worth the price of the record alone – and other tiles include "Swan Lake", "No Birds", "Chant", "No Radio", "Albatross", "Careering", and "Memories". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Public Enemy, EU & OthersDo The Right Thing – Soundtrack ... LP
Motown, 1989. Used ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ MomusPublic Intellectual – An Anthology 1986 to 2016 (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 80s/1990s/2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
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".

Eden AhbezEden's Island – The Music Of An Enchanted Isle ... LP
Del-Fi/Captain High (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... About October 15, 2017
An incredibly evocative record – one of the strangest of its kind, and an audio treasure that we've loved for years! Eden Ahbez first came into public prominence as the man who wrote "Nature Boy" for Nat King Cole – a dark, moody tune that was as mysterious and earthy as the man who wrote it! This album was recorded nearly a decade after Cole's original hit, and features Ahbez almost in Moondog-like territory – working in an amazing setting of odd instruments and exotic percussion – but also singing in this almost spiritualist kind of way! The record's got plenty of ties to the exotica scene of the late 50s – but also stand out from the pack with a mad vision that's all its own – a strange intersection of lines that one might draw between Moondog, Martin Denny, and Anton La Vey! Tracks include "The Wanderer", "Eden's Island", "Tradewind", "Full Moon", "Mongoose", "Market Place", "The Old Boat", "Island Girl" and "La Mar". LP, Vinyl record album

Eden Ahbez & OthersWild Boy – The Lost Songs Of Eden Ahbez (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/1960s. New Copy Gatefold ... $28.99 31.99
A much-needed look at the untapped musical legacy of Eden Ahbez – the west coast mystic who's best remembered for delivering the song "Nature Boy" to Nat King Cole (legendarily walking in barefooted during a recording session!) – but who also made a range of other great music in the years that followed! Apart from "Nature Boy", and Ahbez's rare Eden's Island album from 1960, most of his other songs have fallen in in the shifting sands of time – but this record does a great job of digging up the best of the bunch, and presents them in a well-documented package that's much better than some of the public domain Eden Ahbez records that have hit the market. Song songs are by Eden, in a range of exotic vocal modes – others are by contemporaries, some in collaboration with Ahbez, some working on their own – and there's a great rante of trcks that icnlude "The Clam Man", "Umgowah", "India", "Child Of Nature", "Anna Was Mine (demo)", "Overcomers Of The World", and "Monterey" by Eden Ahbez – plus "Surfer John" by Nature Boy & Friends, "Wild Boy" by Mort Wise & The Wisemen, "Eden's Island" by Arthur Lyman, "Land Of Love" by Nat King Cole, "Hey Jacque" by Eartha Kitt, and "Palm Springs" by Ray Anthony. (Put together by the same guy who did Exotic World Of Eden Ahbez – but with different tracks, and even better sound!) LP, Vinyl record album

Robin BougieGraphic Thrills Vol 2 – American XXX Movie Posters 1970 to 1985 ... Book
Fab (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $10.99 29.95
A beautiful document of the golden years of adult cinema – a book that not only features dozens of vintage posters from the 70s, but also offers up a surprising amount of information as well! The package has a great balance – plenty of history and background on feature-length erotic films, as well as some fantastic images that were used to market them – posters that are often not nearly as graphic as the films, because they were often put up in public, usually at theaters that were also showing normal movies too! Author Robin Bougie must have spent plenty of time at the movies back in the day – as the book's filled with very detailed descriptions of many different films – delivered in a way that's got as much sense of humor as it does attention to detail. 143 pages, softcover, and in full color. And in case you're worried, most of the images here seem to be relatively softcore – with much less nudity than you'd guess. Book

Jacques Brel, Georges Brassens, & Leo FerreTrois Hommes Sur La Photo (4CDs & DVD) ... CD
Universal (France), 1969. New Copy 4CD & DVD ... $13.99
A fantastic package based around a legendary meeting of three of the greatest minds in French music in the 60s – singer/songwriters Jacques Brel, George Brassens, and Leo Ferre – who shared a space for a famous discussion on the state of music and culture at the time! The package features 3CDs of music by each individual artist – some of the best songs by Jacques Brel, George Brassens, and Leo Ferre – plus a bonus CD that features their entire conversation together – very riveting stuff, if you can understand the language – and captured perfectly, with that flair for public intellectualism that we've never been able to manage over here, but which the French can do so well. The package also features a DVD on their meeting – a documentary, using some of the photos from the event, plus commentary by key contemporaries who include Juliette Greco and Jacques Higelin. The three music CDs alone are a bargain at this price – with 36 tracks in all – and packaged with the DVD and other CD, they make for a hell of a nice box set! CD

James BrownThere It Is ... LP
Polydor, 1972. Very Good ... $19.99
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".

William S BurroughsCall Me Burroughs ... CD
ESP/Word Beat, 1966. Used ... $2.99
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 ... $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!

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".

Allen GinsbergSongs Of Innocence & Experience (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Omnivore, 1969/1971. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99 22.98
Ever wonder what happens when beatniks turn into hippies? They make albums like this one – a real treasure from the late 60s underground – and a set that showed the complete transformation of Allen Ginsberg at the time! The set's a real oddity – recorded after Ginsburg had hit new fame for his appearance at the Chicago 7 trial – but with a meditative quality that's very different than his more public presence as a yippie. The record features Ginsburg reading the works of William Blake and playing harmonium – while he receives instrumental backing by the likes of Don Cherry on trumpet, Bob Dorough on piano, and Elvin Jones on drums – usually in ways that are light, but still meaningful – and which really highlight Ginsburg's commitment to the project. Peter Orlovsky chimes in on a few tracks – and titles include "The Shepherd", "Little Black Boy", "London", "Ah Sun Flower", and "Laughing Song". CD features bonus tracks – "The Grey Monk (alt take)" and "Brothels Of Paris" – plus CD2 features more blake songs, most unissued – with titles that include "Holy Thursday", "A Nurses Song", "The Fly", "Spring", "The Divine Image", and "Infant Joy". Also includes three mantras done with backing by Arthur Russell on cello – "Padmasambhava Mantra", "Roghupati Raghava", and "Om Namah Shivaye". CD

Wax Poetics, 2016. New Copy ... $18.99 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.

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

The album was reportedly recorded in a parking garage, and definitely has a dark sound to match – and titles include "Attempted Coup Madagascar", "The Ivory Coast", "Next To Nothing", "Zulu Zulu", "Real Men", and "When All Else Fails". LP, Vinyl record album
(Very cool French pressing – with booklet!)

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.

✨✧ 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

Bear Family (Germany), Mid 40s-Mid 50s. Used 8CDs ... Out Of Stock
An amazing 8 CD collection of rare rhythm & blues, jump tunes, and gospel-tinged soul from the Nashville independent scene of the 40s and 50s! Long, LONG before "Music City USA" was churning product the way it does today, Nashville had a true working class ethic along with the standard biz behavior, with lots of indies with full rosters of amazing artists that never got their just rewards. It wasn't just country down there – labels like Bullet, Tennessee, Republic, Excello and others represented the soulful sounds of Nashville, and these long lost treasures are in many cases getting their first legit reissues here! 7 CDs of music, thematically assorted, and a bonus disc with interviews. Also includes the most massive, well done book we've ever seen included in a set like this – 276 hardbound glossy pages, full of photos and richly written bios and history. It's the kind of thing you might see for around $100 in a bookstore! But here you also get close to 100 tunes, including "Baby Don't You Want To Go" by Sherman Williams, "Three Little Girls" by Cecil Gant, ""Bewildered" by the Red Miller Trio, "When You're Baby Gets Up And Goes" by BB King, "Late Hour Blues" by the Bluejacks, "Almost Boogie" by Louis Brooks, "Mississippi Boogie" by Julius King, "You've Gotta Stop This Mess" by Fat Man with Sunnyland Slim, and tons more!

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.

Fania, 1978. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A great little live album from The Fania All Stars – one that's recorded a few years after their classic sets at the Cheetah, Red Garter, and Yankee Stadium – but which still burns with the same sort of energy! The groove here has a bit more of a straighter salsa approach – as you'd guess from the date – but the record still features the cream of the crop of the New York scene, coming together with a masterful sense of power and togetherness! Vocalsits include Justo Belancourt, Celia Cruz, Cheo Feliciano, and Ismael Rivera – and titles include "Felicitaciones", "Ahora Si", "Publico Corriente", "Toro Mata", "El Nazareno", "Cucala", and "Yo Soy La Candela".

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

Michel Frizot & Cedric De VeigyVU – The Story Of A Magazine (hardcover) ... Book
Thames & Hudson, 2009. New Copy ... $6.99 75.00
That VU isn't the Velvet Underground – but instead the title of an amazing French magazine from the prewar years – still a landmark in graphic design, and presented here in a very large, very vivid book that offers up pages and pages from the original publication! The book begins with a bit of history, then quickly moves into reproductions of articles and full pages that ran in VU during the 30s – with an especially strong focus on its revolutionary approach to photography – which was almost the magazine's answer to the newsreel styles of the time. The images spin out on paper in ways that still are quite striking and revolutionary – some in action montages, some in collage, some juxtaposed with almost surreal effect – and the book is over 300 pages, and is the closest you'll ever come to experiencing this landmark publication! Super-heavy, hardcover, and lavish artbook style presentation. Book

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