August Kleinzahler Music I - LXXIV
This fine American-Grain poet digs Elmo Hope as badly as he does Lucia Berlin (and he's sniffy about Tom Waits). His prose here is clear as a bell, ranging from Bach to the Louvins. Warmly recommended.



Lee Scratch Perry — Kiss Me Neck Jeremy Collingwood
The comprehensive discography section is invaluable and awe-inspiring. Plenty of photos, too, albeit black and white.



Light: On The South Side
Gorgeous and heavy-duty: a hardback of photos of mid-70s South Side Chicago clubland — Kools, cars, sex, threads, booze, Pimp Oil — with a juicy double-LP of funky blues. To Europe only; UK postage free.



Charles Mingus Beneath The Underdog
‘The jazz world has seen its share of compelling autobiographies but none to rival the quality of Beneath The Underdog. A shocking and brilliant book’ (Q magazine).



Music, Race And Nation — Musica Tropical In Colombia Peter Wade
A fascinating historical overview stuffed with interviews, histories and fresh information, intertwining porro, vallenato and cumbia with issues of sexuality, race, nation, tradition. Nothing better on the subject.




Gil Scott-Heron The Last Holiday
'Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream. And Stevie Wonder had a dream. This is a book about dreams.' Gripping memoir, steeped in Gil's inimitable voice and consciousness. Hardback, discounted and post-free.



Gil Scott-Heron The Nigger Factory
His second novel, set in the 1960s, on the campus of Sutton University in Virginia, scornfully dissecting the ways we're conditioned to think along narrow, compliant lines.



Gil Scott-Heron The Vulture
Hip thriller about the murder of a teenage boy called John Lee, in the words of four men who knew him when he was just another kid working after school, hanging out, waiting for something to happen.



Gil Scott-Heron Now And Then
The Poems — 'some of the funniest and most literate lyrics in all music... deadpan attacks on racism to withering sarcasm about the Great Society; Chomskian rants to parodies of media shallowness' (Time Out).






Sweet Soul Music Peter Guralnick
High amongst the very best books on classic soul, this is essential.



The Voice Of Egypt Virginia Danielson
Once you're done with the Raymond Williams, this is an enthralling, rich, open account of the amazing life of Um Kalthoum, following trails deep inside the music and culture of Egyptian society.
