  1. I'm surprised this one hasn't gotten any interest, I'm not firm on the $18 asking price. Reasonable offers welcome.
  2. It is yours, if you are still interested. I'll send you a PM to discuss payment and shipping.
  3. I'm selling my copy of Benjamin Looker's book "Point From Which Creation Begins: The Black Artist's Group of St. Louis". It details the history of the BAG, including a significant amount on Julius Hemphill, Oliver Lake, Baikida Carroll and others. The cheapest copy on Amazon is currently $20.45. I'm asking $16 plus shipping. ($3 U.S., actual cost elsewhere.) Everything is in excellent condition. I read it once, and there is some light creasing on the dust jacket, but everything else looks new.. This is a hardcover edition.
  4. I'm selling my copy of George Lewis' book "A Power Stronger Than Itself: The AACM and American Experimental Music". It is an exhaustively written, yet very readable account of the AACM and related artists. The cheapest copy on Amazon is currently $22.15. I'm asking $18 plus shipping. ($3 U.S., actual cost elsewhere.) Everything is in excellent condition. I read it once, and there is some visible wear to the edge of the cover (mostly light bending), but all pages are in great shape. One note - Amazon says this is 728 pages. My copy has 676 pages, and is the same edition that is listed on Amazon. (2009 paperback edition)
  5. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Any recommendations for U.S. sources for Zimpel's releases? I've done some searching and am coming up empty, especially for the most recent Hera disc with Hamid Drake.
  6. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Any recommendations on the best source(s) to buy recordings on TUM? I've been out of the loop for a few years and don't see information on who distributes them in the U.S.
  7. My Bloody Valentine - Loveless

    The new album is out. Available from the band's website with all tracks uploaded to youtube for preview. Pitchfork has links to all tracks in one place: http://pitchfork.com/news/49344-my-bloody-valentine-share-new-album-mbv-site-crashes-check-out-cover-art-and-tracklist-now/
  8. I'm looking to buy a copy of David S. Ware's album Godspelized. The used copies I can find seem to run between $32 - $100+, which is more than I'm able to spend. I'm hoping someone here has a copy they'd be willing to part with for a more reasonable price. Thanks for any assistance. John
  9. Alan Lomax in Haiti 10cd set

    up, after 18 months. This set is still kicking around, and could use a good home. Price reduction to $85 plus shipping.

  11. Unexpected Musician Sightings

    I've always considered Raphe Malik's one post on the board as an "unexpected musician sighting". Original post can be found here. As I recall, there was some critical discussion of his albums as a leader, and he took the time to respond.
  12. See that Emanem/Psi lost masters

    There are a lot of fantastic releases on psi and Emanem. My suggestion is to support someone working hard to release new music on a regular basis by ordering a few titles directly from Martin. Prices are reasonable right from the source, and you'll know all of the money is going directly to fund new releases and reissues. I've been coveting the new Foxes Fox release, so I'll take my own advice in the next day or so.
  13. The Nessa Juggernaut rolls on

    I finally allowed myself to buy some new music after taking a break for a long time and caught up on the recent Nessa releases. I'm still amazed by the consistent quality release after release. I give my highest recommendations to the new Roscoe Mitchell, Anthony Braxton, Eddie Johnson, Wadada Leo Smith and Von Freeman. Just great, great music.
  14. Bill Dixon - Intents & Purposes reissue

    This is what it takes to get me back to the board. Life doesn't get any quieter as the kids get older. How are you doing? And many thanks to JLH for handling this so quickly. What he didn't mention is the gold cd also gains me entry to Willy Wonka's candy factory. (I'm not sure I was supposed to mention that...)
  15. Bill Dixon - Intents & Purposes reissue

    Quick question - I just got this from CD Universe and am having trouble playing it on my PC and on my stereo. It is a gold-bottom disc, unlike the Hemphill, which is silver. Are all copies gold discs? If I can't get this to play I'll contact CD Universe, but am wondering if there is something unusual about the copy I received before I go back to them. It's definitely a beautiful package. I can't wait to hear the music.
