Public EnemyIt Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back ... CD
Def Jam, 1988. Used ... $3.99
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.Flowers Of Romance ... CD
Warner, 1981. Used ... $5.99
A bold move forward for Public Image Ltd – a set recorded after bassist Jah Wobble left the group – and John Lydon and company made an abrupt shift from bass-heavy dub to a highly percussive mode! With Wobble gone, Keith Levene is even more of a presence here – bringing some amazing drums into play, as well as some very dark guitar – at moments when additional drums were provided by Martin Adkins. The trio lineup is amazing – very raw, earthy, and stripped-down – and the bass is hardly missed with the album's very strong use of drums. Titles include "Four Enclosed Walls", "Track 8", "Flowers Of Romance", "Under The House", "Hymie's Him", "Banging The Door", "Go Back" and "Francis Massacre". CD

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

Hands down one of the best and most original hip hop debuts of the late 80s!

Gil EvansLive At The Public Theater New York 1980 Vol I ... CD
Evidence, 1980. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Gil Evans plays an electric grand piano and is joined by a rather large set of musicians who include Masabumi Kikuchi on a variety of synthesizers, Billy Cobham on drums, Hammiet Bluiett and Arthur Blythe on saxes, Hannibal Marvin Peterson and Jon Faddis on trumpet, and George Lewis on trombone – a wide range of underground talents that show that Evans was still working with the best of the left field, even late in his career. This 2CD set brings together both of the original albums in the series – and tracks include some Evans originals – "Anita's Dance", "Jelly Rolls", "Alyrio", and "Variations On The Misery", plus a version ofJimi Hendrix's "Up From The Skies". Other tracks include "Listen To The Slience", "Stone Free", "Sirhan's Blues", and "Zee Zee". CD

A pretty underrated album from Lou Reed started him out in the 80s – the solid and accessible Growing Up In Public – cut with his touring band and set of straight-forward, disarmingly honest songs and fairly rockin' arrangements! Lou's taking on personal and family issues on this set, and the conversational, pretense free approach serves it really well in our eyes. Tracks include "How Do You Speak With An Angel", "So Alone", "My Old Man", "Smiles". "Teach The Gifted Children" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

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

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

John CarterCastles Of Ghana ... LP
Gramavision, 1986. Very Good ... $29.99
We've always wondered why Carter's wonderful avant collaborations with Bobby Bradford were so under-documented for so long, as to our ears they were making clearly the leading lights of the LA new scene. Finally, by the 80s, more recordings seemed to be offered up to them, like this one. Carter was originally commissioned by the New York Shakespeare Festival's "New Jazz at the Public" series to do these pieces. Carter's inspiration for this record was the history of the use of castles on the coast of Ghana during the slave trade in the 16th century. Titles include "Castles Of Ghana", "Evening Prayer", "The Fallen Prince", "Capture", and "Theme Of Desperation". The players include Marty Ehrlich on bass clarinet, Andrew Cyrille on drums and percussion, Bobby Bradford on cornet and Benny Powell on trombone among others. LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... About December 6, 2017
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

Miles DavisLive At The Fillmore East – It's About That Time ... CD
Columbia, 1970. Used 2CDs ... $6.99
Previously-unreleased live work by one of Miles Davis' most important groups ever – a Bitches Brew-era lineup, playing live at the Fillmore East a month before the record was released to the public – which makes this performance one of the first times the world had ever heard jams like this! The group's heavy on rhythm here – a rumbling groove brought up from the bottom, courtesy of the drums of Jack Dejohnette, basses of Dave Holland, and percussion of Airto – sewn together beautifully by the Fender Rhodes work of Chick Corea – easily some of the noisiest sounds the instrument ever produced! Miles plays trumpet, and Wayne Shorter's on soprano and tenor sax – on titles that include "Directions", "Spanish Key", "Masqualero", "Miles Runs The Voodoo Down", "Bitches Brew", and "It's About That Time/Willie Nelson".

Impulse/MCA, 1961. Used ... $2.99
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". CD

Allen GinsbergSongs Of Innocence & Experience ... LP

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

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 ... $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. Amazing! Paperback, 200+ pages. Book

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.

Roland KirkVolunteered Slavery ... CD
Atlantic/WEA (UK), 1969. Used ... $6.99
Our favorite album ever from Roland Kirk – and a beautiful mix of two different sides of his genius! Side one's got Roland doing these crazy takes on late 60's pop cuts like "My Cherie Amour" and "Say a Little Prayer", plus his own "songs", done with soulful vocals and a straight-on approach that shows him trying to break out of the avant jazz underground, and reach a wider audience with a spiritual message on tracks like "Search For The Reason Why" and "Spirits Up Above". If this description sounds like a mess, it's not – because this side of the album is one of Kirk's most brilliant statements ever about jazz, soul, love and freedom! Side two has Roland in a straighter vein – running through a tight live set from Newport 1968, handled with fire and imagination, the kind of boundless energy he always brought to his public appearances. Tracks on that set include "One Ton", "Three For The Festival", "Afro Blue", and some great remarks by Roland! CD

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

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

RCA, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $0.99
The initial pre-Broadway recording of one of the most influential musical moments of the 60s – Hair! Hair not only forever changed the concept of musical theater, but it also gave the world an incredible array of groovy tunes with odd rhythms – and made a place for composer Galt MacDermot to continue his musical experiments for years to come – eventually influencing a generation of beatheads and hip hoppers as a result! This album is the original first recording – done by the New York Shakespeare Festival Public Theater – with a cast that includes Ed Crowley, Jonelle Allen, Jerome Ragni, Paul Jabara, and Steve Dean – and a band that includes Galt MacDermot himself. Titles include "Dead End", "Where Do I Go", "Hare Krishna", "I Got Life", "Air", "Ain't Got No", "Manchester", and "Exanaplanetooch". 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".

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.

Sun RaIn The Orbit Of Ra ... CD
Strut (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99 16.99
A really wonderfully-done collection of work from the legendary Sun Ra – put together by longtime musical partner Marshall Allen, and way way different than the typical mish-mash of tracks you'd find on some of the budget or public domain titles on the market! First off, the track selection is really thoughtful – music that definitely defines the Arkestra in the 60s and 70s, but which also highlights some of its overlooked corners too – pulled together from recordings that appeared on the Saturn, Impulse, and other labels – all curated and remastered by Art Yard, who've done their share of great Ra reissues over the years. Plus, the package features a few unreleased performances as well – and although it would serve as a great introduction to the music of Sun Ra, it's also really perfectly put together for longtime Ra fans as well – given the focus, track selection, and overall quality of the whole thing. The sounds are sublime – maybe one of the best summations of the righteous, cosmic genius of the Arkestra at its best – and titles include "Reflects Motion", "Island In The Sun (extended)", "Somewhere In Space", "The Lady With The Golden Stockings", "Somebody Else's World", "Ancient Aethiopia", "Astro Black", "Have You Heard The Latest News From Neptune", "We Travel The Spaceways", and "Plutonian Nights". 2CD version also includes the never-heard "Trying To Put The Blame On Me".

Raph RashidBack to the Lab – Hip Hop Home Studios (hardcover) ... Book
Gingko Press, 2017. New Copy ... $26.99 35.00
Hip hop started in the streets, then quickly moved to the studio once the music got more sophisticated – then made a further move to the home studio as costs went up and technology got better – almost taking things back to the underground as it opened up lots of new creative freedoms! Raph (aka Raphael) Rashid first examined these new spaces in his classic book Behind The Beat – issued over a decade back, and a crucial look at the new underground of hip hop production – and this volume follows up with new spaces from the ensuing years – all represented with the great sort of photography and attention to detail that we loved in the first book! Raph's got unfettered access to these amazing spaces – non-public production sites, responsible for some of the best sounds of the underground – in chapters that look at Kenny Dope, J Dilla, Flying Lotus, Oh No, Dianmond D, Khalil, Waajeed, Oddisee, Alchemist, Jazzy Leff, Just Blaze, Sa Ra, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Lord Finesse, and others – with pictures of the artists, their creative space, and even their record collections too. Most of the book is photographs, but there's also introductory text for each chapter too – and the whole thing is a hefty 212 pages, hardcover. Book

Independent Project/Sordide Sentimental (France), 1982. Very Good+ ... $24.99
An incredible early album from the LA scene – more UK post-punk, with a definite Joy Division influence, than anything else taking place on the west coast at the time! 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".

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 ... $18.99 29.99
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.

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.

PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... $9.99 47.99
An early horror comic that definitely lives up to its name – not to be confused with the black and white magazine that started in the 60s from Warren Publications – but a much earlier, much more obscure work from the glory days of pre-code books in the 50s! Eerie definitely has a look that fits alongside most of its contemporaries – those ultra-creepy comics that were the bane of parents and the PTA back in the day – but the publication also seems willing to try some new things, too – as they experiment with an odd array of creatures and creeps that make their stories a bit different than usual. Don't worry, there's still plenty of ghouls, gore, and freaked-out dudes – and art in these issues is by Sid Check, Norman Nodel, Alvin Hollingsworth, Gene Fawcette, Harry Lazarus, and others. Book features seven rare issues of Eerie – all in full color, with cover images and ads too! Book

Fela & Africa 70Coffin For Head Of State/Unknown Soldier ... CD
Barclay/Wrasse, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
Two beautiful albums from one of the most difficult periods of Fela's life. "Coffin For Head Of State (Part 1 & 2)" is a mournful dirge-like track (although not without a good deal of funk), written around the death of Fela's mother from an attack on his Kalakatua Republic. "Unknown Soldier (Part 1 & 2)" tells of that attack, and has a similar mournful quality, mirroring the sadness and trauma of the event. Both tracks are fantastic, and represent a maturity and emotionality that make this time one of the best musical moments of Fela's career! CD

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.

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

Gang Of FourSolid Gold ... LP
Warner, 1981. Near Mint- ... $29.99
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".
