RittorMusic Soup – 45 RPM (paperback) ... Book
Rittor (Japan), 2015. New Copy Book ... $15.99
Dozens of Japanese DJs, musicians, and record collectors pull together lists of their favorite 45 tracks of all time – in this full color book that's presented in a similar style to some of the Japanese discographies we've stocked over the years! The talents run a pretty large range – from familiar names like DJ Krush or Soil & Pimp Sessions – to many more we'd never heard of – all pictured in cool shots from Tokyo with their record collections nearby, alongside pages that offer up images of album covers and singles for their favorite titles, with some titles in English, and lots more notes in Japanese! As with other books of this nature, even if you can't read Japanese, but are interested in records, you'll find plenty here to like – and the selection of songs includes hip hop, classic rock, J-Pop, indie rock, and lots of other different styles.

✨✧ Jeff A Kreiter45 RPM Group Collector's Record Price Guide ... Book
Jeff A Kreiter, 1996. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A hell of a book, and way more than just a price guide – a publication that's now out of print, but which is still a key resource, even in the world of the internet! Author Jeff Kreiter compiles a huge amount of information on group soul records here – and a fair bit of other R&B and soul as well – in a book that runs almost 500 oversized pages, with listings of 7" singles on countless indie labels. The book lists 18,000 different 45s – with catalog numbers, artists, label, titles, and year of release – as well as pricing information from the 90s – which is fairly out of date now, but is still kind of nice to see. There's also information on different pressings, including possible bootlegs – and we still find it a great resource after all these years. 450 pages, black and white. Book
(Please note that there is a small price sticker on the cover.)

Fantagraphics, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 35.00
An amazing collection of 40s and 50s jazz drawings by Gene Deitch – the complete anthology of his work for legendary jazz magazine Record Changer! Gene was an amazing artist and cartoonist, whose work helped solidify the legacies of some of the most famous cartoon characters in the American pop culture canon – from Popeye, to Tom & Jerry and beyond – but we're especially in love with his jazz-centric Record Changer era! Gene adored jazz and his love for it really shows! Cat On A Hot Thin Groove includes all of his magazine covers, cartoon panels and other bits from Record Changer – versatile work that ranges from fun, cartoon-y panels of "Jazz Cat" characters, to more elaborate and abstract illustrations. Wonderful, vital stuff – and it's very nicely anthologized here by Fantagraphics! Coffee-table scale paperback – 160+ pages of prime Deitch jazzy drawings with text accompaniment. Book

Keven ReaganAlex Steinweiss – The Inventor Of The Modern Album Cover (hardcover) ... Book
Taschen, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
An incredible look at the man who's credited with helping create the art of the album cover – mid-century designer Alex Steinweiss, whose work graced hundreds of records on dozens of labels over the years – a good number of which are presented here! The book is way more than just a typical record cover book – although it includes hundreds of those inside – as it also offers up a history of Steinweiss and a look at both his graphic roots and later impact – as he begun to design color covers for "album" books of 78rpm recordings, then really took flight during the 10" and 12" years of the full-length album – which offered brilliant reproduction of his ideas. The volume is way way bigger than the previous book on Steinweiss – a whopping 549 pages, with hundreds of full color images, text in German and English, and a beautiful hardcover package! Book
