Holy music books batman! This looks AWESOME!!!
It's a good one!
Found mine at 1/2 Price Books.
Really enjoyed reading about what other record collectors get off on.
As previously posted, I finally pulled the trigger on this one. This title is pricey even for paperbacks, but this copy is in very good shape and the price was not out-a-sight;
The Last Balladeer - The Johnny Hartman Story by Gregg Akermann
A review from The Atlantic popped up in my fb feed today - it's from 2017, regarding a book by David Weigal: 'The Show That Never Ends: The Rise and Fall of Prog Rock'...
The reviewer isn't a fan of the genre... ;-)
got this for christmas, mainly a picture book but still a good read
Pictures, essays, playlists, egg raids.
Wife got me this one for Christmas.
I just started Crate Digger, but so far so good. It's written album by album.
Old Records Never Die was amazing. One of those "I can't put it down" books. I can't imagine trying to track down the very copy of something I've sold in the past.
This one was written kind of awkwardly, but the stories are great. If your into early punk and post-punk. You'll love it.
I'd be interested on finding out how he did get up there? And down?
could imagine the whole lot just collapsing,not a good idea to try
''Memory of a Free Festival-The Golden Era of the British Underground Festival Scene'' - a picture book about the british festival scene from the early 60's to the 80's
A good follow up to the previous post?
Shrill demented sparrows bark,
The sun into being. They rule
dawn's Kingdom. The cars-
a rising chorus- Then
workmen's songs & hammers
The children of the schoolyard,
a hundred high voices,
complete the orchestration
Well researched, well written new book out on guitars, amplifiers, inventors, musicians and history. (this copy goes back to the library Monday..)
Those are three I'm definitely interested in. I didn't know about the Johnny Hartman book...
The Life and Legacy of Dexter Gordon
By Maxine Gordon
Illustrated. 279 pp. University of California Press.
I'd love to read this one, but boy is it pricey! Maybe the library will have a copy...
