Rob ChapmanPsychedelia & Other Colours (hardcover) ... Book
Faber & Faber (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $6.99 36.00
An incredibly dense book on the psychedelic scene of the 60s – a huge volume that not only looks at an impressive array of music, but also the wider trippy culture, too – but all with a level of text that goes far beyond most of the thinner volumes on the period! Many of the chapter titles refer to key musical texts, but then quickly extrapolate from those moments – soaring out from "I Am The Blackgold Of The Sun", "The Greta Garbo Home For Wayward Boys & Girls", and "Painting With Light" – and looking at psychedelia on both sides of the Atlantic in the 60s, with lots of surprising insights along the way. Despite a very vivid cover, the book itself is all text, no images – a hefty 638 pages, hardcover, and a very deep read! Book

✨✧ Billy BraggRoots Radicals & Rockers – How Skiffle Changed The World (hardcover) ... Book
Faber & Faber (UK), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
You'll know Billy Bragg as a singer/songwriter, but he's also a surprisingly strong historian and author here – giving us a vivid look at the rise of skiffle bands on the UK scene at the end of the 50s! Skiffle was something that never played as strongly on our shores, but was inspired by American blues and folk – influences that younger UK artists used to create raw acoustic music that was heavy on rhythm, and a great contrast to the overproduced pop of England's post-war years! Long before the Beatles and the Stones, skiffle bands were the hippest things going in the British underground – and Billy Bragg does a great job of tracing the movement and showing its impact – something that's long overdue in the annals of music writing that's often too America-centric on the influences of British rockers in the 60s. 431 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images.

✨✧ Ben GreenmanDig If You Will The Picture – Funk, Sex, & God In The Music Of Prince (hardcover) ... Book
Faber & Faber, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice change from the usual book on the music and life of Prince – as author Ben Greenman brings in a fair bit of analysis as he moves through the career of the legendary soul singer – all in ways that are strongly hinted at by the title! Greenman divides the book up into four sections that showcase his approach – Man Music, Meaning, Method Madness, and Memory – the last of which deals with the too-soon passing of Prince, and the huge impact he had on music in the past few decades. There's still plenty of biography in the book, but the author also analyses things along the way and puts them into a nice sense of perspective – maybe one that's easier to do after the artist's passing, which was the case with this project. Questlove provides the introduction – and the book is hardcover, and 286 pages. Book

Loos/ArmstrongLoos/Armstrong ... CD
Okka Disk, 1999. New Copy ... $5.99
That's Loos/Armstrong, not Louis Armstrong – a late 90s Dutch group who improvise freely on both electric and acoustic elements – with a style that makes the record one of the most offbeat albums ever released on the Okka Disk label! In some ways, the combo almost tie together Dutch traditions of free jazz and electronic experimentation – with a lineup that features Gerald Bowhuis on piano, Huib Emmer on guitar, Johan Faber on drums, Patricio Wang on bass and guitar, and Dennis Rudge on voice – plus leader Peter Van Bergen on tenor, bass clarinet, contrabass clarinet, and some mighty cool electronics! At times, the use of voice adds almost a no wave element to the set – and on the set, Rudge reads from Sun Ra's "Endless Realm" , and "Amooooore", a 1916 text from Volt – on titles that include "FTE 1", "FA5 1", "FA 3", and "FL 1".

A dramatic score for this all-star, big-budget film about international intrigue – with a setting that runs from Red China to the Vatican, and a set of stars that includes Anthony Quinn, Oskar Werner, David Janssen, and Laurence Olivier.

LP, Vinyl record album
(Still sealed, with a cutout hole and light seepage stain.)
