Anja Bound, 2017. New Copy
The music of Goblin has wowed American audiences for years – from their first few soundtracks for classic Italian giallo films, to their recent revival and concert performances! Yet the full story of the group's never been told in English – until the arrival of this huge and well-resear ... Book
Gingko Press, 2017. New Copy
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! ... Book
Yale University Press, 2014. New Copy
A heady look at the life and work of Nam June Paik – the man who virtually invented video art at the end of the 60s, and went on to work in a range of other amazing media too! The core of the book features images from a large retrospective of Paik's career – stills from videos, ... Book
Miles Davis – Collected Artwork (hardcover)
Insight, 2013. New Copy
Most folks know Miles Davis as a legendary trumpeter – but during the final decade or so of his life, he also took to the visual arts as well – and turned out a surprisingly large amount of paintings and drawings – a good deal of which are collected in this book! The aesthetic of ... Book
Flametree (UK), 2015. New Copy
The text inside may not be as thought-provoking as the lyrics of Leonard Cohen – but the images alongside are certainly worth the price of admission! The book features dozens of photographs of Cohen – from the early years onwards, some studio shots, some concert images, and many at a ... Book
Flametree (UK), 2017. New Copy
A book that definitely lives up to its title – as the range of photographs inside certainly show the ever-changing style of the legendary David Bowie! The book's more of a photo book than a proper biography – although it does have some history alongside the images – and many of ... Book
Gingko Press, 2013. New Copy
Think you know hip hop records? Think again – because if you only know the commercially released and vocal versions of the material, then you only know half the story – because among true collectors, the instrumental wax can be even more in-demand! This book opens up that secret world ... Book
Sugar Man – The Life Death & Resurrection Of Sixto Rodriguez (hardcover)
Bantam (UK), 2015. New Copy
A multi-layered book that takes the legend of Rodriguez even farther than the Searching For Sugar Man film – as it not only tells the tale of the enigmatic singer from Detroit, but also the pair of South African fanatics who helped bring his music back to light, and the process of the Sugar ... Book
University Of Florida Press, 2017. New Copy
A long-overdue look at the soul scene in Florida – 60s and 70s music from the Sunshine State that sometimes never gets the proper placement as sounds from northern locales like Philly or Detroit – but which was every bit as important over the years! Author John Capouya does a really ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), 1951/1952. New Copy
The title's a great one for this creepy horror comic of the 50s – as the stories have this stark, spooky feel that definitely helps you take a journey into fear! The publication was maybe a bit more low-budget than some of its contemporaries – but that also makes some of these stories ... Book

PS Artbooks (UK), 1952/1953. New Copy

Insight, 2013. New Copy
A beautiful book that traces the music of David Bowie on an album-by-album basis – but which also does so with lavish full color images and hundreds of vintage photos! The book's more of an art book than an essay on the albums – and as such, it offers up a great way to view the ever-shi ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), 1951/1952. New Copy
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 ... Book

PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy
