Public EnemyIt Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back ... CD
Def Jam, 1988. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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 Image Ltd.Second Edition ... LP
Island, 1979. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
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

Nice stuff from James! "Public Enemy" is a wonderful track, with a long spoken monologue that shows a great side of James' progressive ideas. Nice message about heroin, and a good backing with a mellow feel. "I Got A Bag Of My Own" is pretty nice too – a fast funky cut with a shouted chorus that really screams! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Nice stuff from James! "Public Enemy" is a wonderful track, with a long spoken monologue that shows a great side of James' progressive ideas. Nice message about heroin, and a good backing with a mellow feel. Even better is "My Thang", a nice hard funky track that's James' answer to "It's My Thing". It's great how angry he gets when someone else has a big funk hit, and it always seemed like he had to write his own version! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Steve KhanPublic Access/Headline/Crossings ... CD
GRP/BGO (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A trio of later albums from a guitarist who first rose to fame in the 70s! First up is Public Access – a record that's got a slightly goofy cover, but a sound that's much richer than you might expect – thanks in part to great work on the album from percussionist Manolo Badrena! Some of the music here echoes the earlier fusion of guitarist Steve Khan – but other tunes bring in some warmer, Brazilian-y elements – including a bit of vocalization from Badrena, with occasional chorus work from Lani Groves and Vivian Cherry. The rest of the group features frequent partner Anthony Jackson on bass and Dave Weckl on drums – and titles include "Sise", "Silent Screen", "Mambosa", "Butane Elvin", "Botero People, and "Kamarica". The set then follows with three long tracks from Headline – a record that has guitarist Steve Khan almost returning to straight small combo work – although still with some of the wider colors of the fusion modes he first unleashed in the 70s! The album's got a tight core group here – Khan on guitar, Anthony Jackson on bass, Dennis Chambers on drums, and Manolo Badrena on percussion – and Chambers' drum performance is maybe more direct and swinging than some of Khan's previous drummers, which works especially well on the album's versions of songs by Joe Henderson and Ornette Coleman! Titles include "Caribbean Fire Dance", "All Or Nothing At All", and "Turnaround". Last up is Crossings – a great title for this set from guitarist Steve Khan – as the crossings here reflect Steve's increasing ear towards other cultures and rhythms in his music as the years moved on – even while still keeping things in a relatively fusion-based mode! Steve's got plenty of those warm colors that he always brought to his playing – working with a tight lineup that includes bassist Anthony Jackson, drummer Dennis Chambers, percussionist Manolo Badrena, and tenorist Michael Brecker. Titles include "Descarga Khanalonious", "Melancholee", "Inner Urge", "Capricorn", "What I'm Said", "Pee Wee", and "Think Of One". CD

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

✨✧ 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!

✨✧ Ornette ColemanLove Call (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $18.99
One of the two quartet sessions that Ornette cut for Blue Note in the late 60's – and tight mature work like the New York Is Now sides, recorded in the company of Dewey Redman and the Coltrane rhythm section of Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones, which offers a contrasting perspective to most of the preceding Coleman groups. Ornette plays alto and trumpet, as he was doing around that time, and Redman's playing is amongst his finest on record. Four tunes: the title track, "Airborne", "Check Out Time", and "Open To The Public". CD includes 3 bonus alternate takes, too! CD

Sam CookeMr Soul ... LP
RCA, 1963. Good+ ... $14.99
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".

Bob DylanAnother Side of Bob Dylan ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Very Good ... $24.99
Bob's fourth record, and close runner up to Freewheelin' as the masterpiece of this early stage of his career. While the overly arch Times They Are A Changin' pretty much stood as the cornerstone of classifiable folk rock at the time, Another Side is just that. Dense, elliptical, and downright surreal at times, with some of the protesty stuff that made the media so happy & hungry, but much more layered and poetic. Another side is also much more reverent of and indebted to the Harry Smith field recordings that Bob studied so hard, the stuff that finally caught on with the general public in the early 90s. Titles include "Spanish Harlem Incident", "It Ain't Me Babe", "Ballad In Plain D", "Black Crow Blues", "I Don't Believe You", "Motorpsycho Nitemare", "To Ramona", "Chimes Of Freedom", "My Back Pages", and "I Shall Be Free No 10".

Gil EvansOut Of The Cool ... LP
Impulse, 1961. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
A pivotal session for Gil Evans – one that brought his genius to the American public strongly and successfully, without the help of Miles Davis! Sure, Gil had recorded albums as a leader before this one – but the sparkling quality of this set is right up there with the charts he handled for Miles, and the quality of the players in the group make the performance every bit as great. Gil's band includes trumpeter Johnny Coles, plus Ron Carter on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, Budd Johnson on tenor, and Ray Crawford on guitar. Titles include "Stratusphunk", "Sunken Treasure", "La Nevada", and a great reading of Kurt Weil's "Bilbao Song". LP, Vinyl record album

Allen GinsbergSongs Of Innocence & Experience ... LP
MGM, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

There's few groups cooler than I Marc 4 – one of the hippest forces in the Italian sound library studio scene of the 70s – ultra-hip, often-funky, and as groovy as groovy can be – even though these guys were continuously working behind the curtain, and never getting any sort of real exposure to the public! That hasn't stopped their music from becoming the stuff of legend, though – as over the years, material like this has rightly earned the group strong praise from legions of collectors – of both instrumental funk, funky jazz, and hip soundtrack material.

✨✧ George JacksonLeavin Your Homework Undone – In The Studio With George Jackson 1968 to 1971 ... CD
Fame/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.98
A dream of a set for any fan of deep soul – 24 never-issued tracks by southern soul genius George Jackson – a songwriter whose talents helped many folks out back in the day, even though George never fully got the exposure he deserved! In fact, Jackson spent so much time writing songs and recording demos, he never got the chance to release much music on his own – which is a hell of a shame, as he's got a voice we'd put right up there with James Carr, Otis Redding, or some of the greats from the time! Here, Jackson works in the studio at Fame – crafting fantastic moments of genius that would sometimes evolve into songs for others, sometimes never get properly released – but all at a level that's completely top-shelf, and maybe even a cut above the southern soul released by other labels at the time. These aren't rough, unformed tracks – but well-recorded selections that have Jackson working with the best musicians the Muscle Shoal scene had to offer – like finding a time machine into the past, and discovering a huge soul legacy you never knew existed. Titles include "Quicksand Around My Mind", "I Got A Feeling", "A Woman Respects A Man", "A Man & A Half", "If This Is Love", "I Wish I Was A Child Again", "I'm Glad To Have What He Didn't Want", "Don't Tell Me Nothing About My Baby", "Weekend Love", "Your Love Made A U Turn", "Keep Your Business To Yourself", "You Caught Me Red Handed", and "Never In Public".

Seun Kuti & Egypt 80Black Times ... LP
Strut (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 28.99
Some of the most righteous and furiously funky Afro Soul since Fela Kuti's prime – and it's beyond appropriate for such a committed, perfect personification of a classic sound via a modern player come from Fela's own son Seun! As strident as Seun's approach is, much like his father at his best, the call for revolution is as personal and soulful as it is political – this is a universal that's as riveting as you'd hope. Joined by veterans of the Egypt 80 band that Fela helped form back in the day, and featuring guests as legendary as Carlos Santana – who sounds SO good in a supporting roll on an Afro Soul tune – and modern soul jazz heavy Robert Glasper, this is among the finest new albums on the Strut label in years. Includes "Last Revolutionary", "Black Times" feat Carlos Santana, "Corporate Public Control Department (CPCD)", "Kuku Kee Me", "Bad Man Lighter (BML)", "African Dreams", "Struggle Sounds" and "Theory Of Goat And Yam".

Laughing HyenasMerry Go Round (2LP pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Touch & Go/Third Man, 1987. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
The nicely fleshed out, 2LP version of the debut EP by Laughing Hyenas – some of the fiercest underground rock ever to come out of the state of Michigan! Even at this early point, there's a brooding, postpunk bluesy vibe at times, but the most fiery quality here is John Brannon's vocals – a seriously throat-shredding instrument that makes even the moodier tracks pretty incendiary. The band makes one hell of a caterwauling roar at their most intense, but they're capable of a moodier sound, too, even at this early point. Includes "Stain", "Hell's Kitchen", "That Girl", "Gabriel", "Play Ground", "What Tomorrow Brings", "Soul Kiss". "Candy", "Dedications To The One I Love", "Don't Bouge My High" and "Public Animal #9".

Maria Teresa LucianiSounds Of The City (Suoni Di Una Citta) ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $22.99
An amazing sonic portrait of the modern city – one created on the early 70s Italian scene, but lost to the shifting sands of time, due to its release as a sound library-only album! We've heard Maria Teresa Luciani on a few other records of this nature – but this one may well be her greatest – music that's beyond categorization in the way it presents its subject – not really jazz or soundtrack styles at all, but also not some sort of too-modern compositional idiom either. Instead, the whole thing seems to make some sort of honest, organic sense – as it presents differing aspects of the city, both residential and commercial, public and private – often with a sense of darkness in the immediate approach, but also with a current of hope at times too. Titles include "Public Gardens", "Modern Residential Complex", "Supermarket", "Poor Neighborhoods", "Power Station", "Traffic", and "International Airport". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Priority/Universal (Japan), 1991. Used ... $11.99
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. Remastered for the first time, and includes the full 100 Miles & Runnin' EP as bonus cuts. CD

Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... $22.99
Beautifully playful music from the great Piero Piccioni – done for a mid 60s film directed by and starring the Italian comedian Alberto Sordi, whose presence on screen is a great match for these sounds! Picconi uses some of his jazzy roots at times – including a cool bit of organ – but also works in some offbeat string passages, sometimes with solo violin doing very unusual things – and other times makes nice use of I Cantori Moderni, whose vocals are always a treat! Most tracks are short, and the score also has some lively, upbeat numbers that offset the dreamier ones in a great way – sometimes even with batucada-like percussion – and this stunning 34 track CD marks the first time that most of this music has ever been issued to the public.

MPS/Motor, 1970. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
Nice one! Although Evidence and other labels have been reissuing lots of work from Ra's classic years, there's been a real dearth of material from the crucial early 70's period – when the band was hitting lots of strange grooves, and going way way out, farther than ever before. This essential 2 CD set reissues the rare MPS album It's After The End Of The World, and adds a lot of unreleased material that wasn't on the original album, but which was also recorded on the same date at the Donaueschigen Musik Festival in 1970. Plus, the package also contains a full set of live recordings from Berlin, recorded only a month after the MPS release, and never before released to the public! The whole set's chock full of rare Ra material, and it's packaged with a great set of notes to help you make it through the whole thing! 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.

Apple & The Three OrangesFree & Easy – The Complete Works 1970 to 1975 ... CD
Now Again, Early 70s. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that there's more 60s rawness on the record than you'd get from bigger-label funk at the time – as Ed "Apple" Nelson still works here with a mostly underground vibe! Ed plays drums – which are mighty hard on most numbers – and his vocals have this offbeat, off-kilter, over the top quality that almost reminds us a bit of the Hank Ballard/James Brown recordings for late 60s King – particularly in the way that Nelson's completely unbridled with his energy. The whole thing's great – one of the best funky collections we've heard in years – and presented with a rich amount of notes and historical information too. Titles include "Free & Easy (parts 1 & 2)", "Moon Light", "Curse Upon The World", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Down Home Publicity", "True Love Will Never Die", "Gotta Stand For Something (parts 1 & 2)", and "I'll Give You A Ring". CD features a massive 52 page booklet, too! CD

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.

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".

Flamingo Group feat Marie Rottrova & Peter NemecThis Is Our Soul ... LP
Supraphon (Czech Republic), 1971. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A killer from the Czech scene of the early 70s – but a set that clearly draws its inspiration from the sound of mid-60s London – especially artists who mix jazz and soul, like Georgie Fame or Zoot Money! The core combo is totally great – with a very R&B-drenched vibe – and they work here with guest vocals from singers Marie Rottrova and Petr Nemec, who take turns singing the tunes. But maybe the best moments are the longer Hammond instruments – "Quasimodo's Dream" and "Sunny" – which both feature searing solos from Vladimir Figar, who's a hell of a player on the organ, with some mighty nice ideas! Other titles include "Big Chain", "Nothing's Too Good For My Baby", "Purple Angels", "Chain Of Fools", "Hey Lonely Girl", and "Ain't No Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Manuel Fontan Del JuncoFuturist Depero 1913 to 1950 (hardcover) ... Book
Fundacion Juan March (Spain), 2014. New Copy ... $26.99 78.00
A beautifully huge look at the Italian futurist movement – one that not only features fantastic images of paintings and other artwork, but also some more commercial material, posters, publications, and other elements of the complete futurist lifestyle – all presented in brilliant color throughout! The book has well over 400 oversized pages – more than enough to present a staggering amount of images, yet also include a lot of history and essays on the form too – and although all the material here was pulled together for a groundbreaking exhibition in Madrid, the text is in English throughout – with chapters that include "The Art Of The Future Will Be Largely Advertising", "I Will Smash The Alps Of The Atlantic", and "The Bolted Book". 457 pages, full color, and very heavy!

✨✧ Ethan MichaeliDefender – How The Legendary Black Newspaper Changed America (hardcover) ... Book
Houghton Mifflin, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 32.00
We're ultra-proud to be Chicagoans – and one of the many things that makes is proud is The Chicago Defender – our city's famous African-American newspaper, easily one of the best and most important in a long legacy of progressive 20th Century publications! This very hefty book tells the full tale of the Defender – offering up hundreds of pages that look not just at the paper's history, but also its role in the segregated black community of Chicago, and its lasting impact – both at a local and national level. The book is extremely well-researched, and written by an author who was also part of the Defender staff in its later years – and the whole thing clocks in at a whopping 633 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images.

✨✧ Itaru MitaAmbient Definitive 1958 to 2013 ... Book
P-Vine (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... $29.99
A very cool book – and way different than you might expect from the title – as the discography doesn't only focus on contemporary ambient albums, but instead traces a history of moody sounds from the late 50s onwards! The publication is one of the most interesting Japanese discographies we've seen so far – filled with an evolving conception of ambient sounds, through jazz, acid folk, kraut rock, electronic music, and a host of other styles that predate Brian Eno's 70s experiments in ambient – and all the many Eno-inspired projects to follow! As with most Japanese discographies, the book has images of record covers, with dates, labels, and artists in English – plus a small review in Japanese – and even if you can't understand that last bit, you can still understand plenty from the way the book breaks down the music into various years and styles. 270 pages, full color, with lots of images!

P-Vine (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... $29.99
The roots of house music and beyond – a mighty cool discography that does a special job of locating the music many years before it first exploded in Chicago and Detroit, then following it for many years after that, through a host of global scenes and styles! The publication is a discography, of the Japanese type – which means that some text is in Japanese, but there's lots of pictures of albums and 12" singles, plus discographical info in English – all laid out in chapters that show an evolution of sounds and styles over time, in a way that doesn't require any Japanese to understand! Chapters include an early look at house-inspiring disco, then Chicago House, Second Summer Of Love, Deep House, French Touch/Detroit House, Disco Dub/Nu Disco, and lots more – spun out over 272 pages, with loads of full color images throughout!

PS Artbooks (UK), 1948/1949. New Copy ... $9.99 47.99
A fantastic volume of work from one of the first science fiction comics ever – a publication that picked up right where the sci-fi pulps left off – although with artwork that was a lot more stunning! This volume presents great late 40s material from Planet Comics – from a time when the scripts and artwork were showing even more polish and care than ever before – which made for even more vivid "space opera" stories in the publication's trademark style! The hardcover book presents the full contents of each issue – including text pages, all stories, and even some vintage ads – and this volume features art by George Evans, Graham Ingels, Matt Baker, Leonard Starr, Enrico Bagnoli, and others. The beautiful book is 336 pages, full color, hardcover, and very nicely done. Book

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

A great set of European jazz from the 60s – featuring Czech bassist Johnny Cretu Raducanu, leading a number of different trios that include pianists like Marius Pop and Jansci Korossy, and drummers like Vasile Ganea and Ion Bohiltea. The set's a nice batch of interesting material, including versions of "Hatian Fight Song", "Round Midnight", and "Work Song" – plus a nice moody original called "Elegie". The styles of the pianists vary nicely, keeping the record fresh from track to track! LP, Vinyl record album

Travis D StimelingCountry Music Reader ... Book
Oxford, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 39.95
A great survey of important writings on country music from the earliest years to the present – one that doesn't just focus on the work of historians and music journalists, but also includes material from popular magazines, fan newsletters, trade publications, and even the artists themselves! The whole thing's a really fresh take on the format – very different than some of the too-iconic efforts that try to systemize country too much, with a great run between high and low, popular and obscure. The book features 51 chapters, each on very different topics – penned by folks as diverse as Charlie Louvin, Johnny Cash, Ralph Peer, Cecil B Sharp, John Lomax, Tom T Hall, George Will, and countless others. 382 pages, softcover.

WatusiDance Classics Disc Guide (paperback) ... Book
Rittor (Japan), 2013. New Copy ... $29.99
Rare club galore – a pretty great publication that looks at the "seeds of club music", and features listings for hundreds of rare records from the 70s and 80s! The format is similar to other Rittor discographies – lots of full color album art (or label art in the case of 12" singles) – with the title, artist, label, and date all in English – followed by a short Japanese review. And as with the other books, it's the selection of tracks that make the whole thing great – as we'll find one record we know and love next to something we'd never thought to try before – and see the music in a new relationship that really informs our digging! Even if you can't read most of the text, there's still plenty here for any crate-digging fan of club and disco – and the book features different sections on "Pre-Disco Era", "Disco Rock", "NY Dance Classics", and other sub-categories that are very helpful. Hundreds of records are listed – and the book is very nicely done! Book
