Incredibly Strange Music, Volume 14
V. Vale, Andrea Juno
Re/Search Publications, 1993 - Music - 208 pages
Incredibly Strange Music can be your guide to discover recordings that specialize in border-crossing—eluding scholars and historians who mainly have dedicated themselves to specific "genres" such as blues, rock, jazz, classical, and other forms. This book takes the listener on a tour of topsy-turvy, genre bending sound experience. Martin Denny, Perrey and Kingsley, Eartha Kitt and others tell how they created their unique recordings. The 12 inch LP covers spotlighted here are themselves "frameable" works of art, yet can still be found for trifling sums at thrift stores and garage sales. This is a record collectors' guide to the last remaining "bargains," and remix-culture DJs looking for something new can find a treasure trove of inspiration in these pages. On another level, this book will satisfy the itinerant reader simply in search of non-conformist thinking and passions.
