Another I would love is 'The Edited and Abridged BNBB and Organissimo Writings of Jim Sangrey." (i know im not alone on this one.)

Would you settle for a collection of jazz 45s instead?

My parents had one of those RCA changers. It plugged into the back of our first tv. It came with a supply of RCA 45s by the Sousa Band, Glenn Miller and Eddy Arnold. Played plenty of Little Richard, Fats Domino, Elvis and Jerry Lee on that sucker.

A completed version of Dashiell Hammett's aborted first draft of THE THIN MAN--written by Hammett himself, that is. (I wager Medjuck would be with me on this one.)

And in my doddering years (or sooner--or how soon are they? :ph34r: ), PEACE BROKE OUT: AN ACCOUNT OF HOW HUMANITY CAME TO ITS SENSES AND ABOLISHED WAR, POVERTY, AND RACIAL & RELIGIOUS HATRED IN THE EARLY YEARS OF THE 21ST CENTURY.

Some day I hope to be able to sit down and take a thorough read of the book that Peter Pullman has written about the life of Bud Powell :rolleyes:

My folks had one of those type spindle adapters on their Silvertone "record player", a fold-top job with a really good AM receiver and a warm-tube smell inside it that never went away. Still had that smell when my mom got rid of it in 200?.

It also had demand of a stylus that flipped over to play 78s and flipped back again for other speeds. One-stop playback, and the fact that the tracking force was probably 29.75 lbs. didn't deter it from serving long and well.

That RCA unit was for 45s only.

I would like a catalog of all known Klimpt paintings and a listing of diminsions and "survivors".

This does exist, but it is rare and quite expensive. Gustav Klimt: With a Catalogue Raisonne of His Paintings by Fritz Novotny and Johannes Dobai.

Powells seems to be cheapest, starting at $600.

I'm actually about 75% going to get the upcoming Catalogue Raisonne of Stuart Davis' work. If you pre-order through Amazon they knock over $100 off the price ($300). I think I would look at it enough to justify the purchase. But I could never tell my wife how much I paid...

Shit, I don't know where that "p" came from. :mellow:

As long as you have been taking in lots of fluids, there should be no question... :rsmile:

Oh, so that was the spindle then? Wow, never saw that before...

Was RCA really that gung-ho about the Speed War that they thought that people would want 45s for everything? God, that's just so...recordindustrial!

Ok, there's a book I'd like to read - the history of the Speed War.

I was going to say perhaps you were so verklimpt at the thought of such a tomb, you couldn't see the keys, but I thought better of it...

Where's the authoritative critical biography of Thelonious Monk that I'm sure we'd all love to read?

I'd like to see a collection of Jonathan Williams' slides of the gravestones/monuments of the famous and less famous. If you read his essay "Paying Respects" in his collection, Blackbird Dust (or read it, as I did, when it appeared in The New York Times in 1976), you too may want to see it.

A new book by Andrew Sarris

A complete collection of Guy Davenport's criticism

A followup to Jean Jacques Sempe's The Musicians - Perhaps he has done another book of drawings of musicians. If so, I haven't seen it.

Robin D.G. Kelley is at work on one.

Re: Peter Pullman's Powell bio, it might be finally be on the verge of appearing.

No followup yet to Sempé's 'Les Musiciens'. Would love to see that too.

I see Sempé from time to time when he cycles around my neighborhood. I may try to stop him next time I see him and ask ;)

If you do speak to him, please give him my thanks for his drawings. He's a wonderful, masterful artist.

"The Library of Babel" is actually the very first Borges story I ever read and got me hooked on him for life. Still one of my favorites.
