3 Francis Davis The History of the Blues The Roots, the Music, the People: from Charley Patton to Robert Clay
New York Hyperion 1995 0786860529 / 9780786860524 Second Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket

Light scuffing to covers, light soiling outer edge of pages and small edge stain rear pages, couple earmarks. Book otherwise clean and intact. B/w illustrations. ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; "Since its origin in Mississippi before the turn of the century, the blues has been pronounced dead many times. Davis (music critic of the Atlantic) assures us that it "rises up like Lazarus every ten years or so. " This book, published in advance of a three-part PBS companion series scheduled to air in the fall of 1995, is a great starting place in understanding the continued appeal of this uniquely American music. Moving from its roots in field hollers, work songs, spirituals, country reels, and Anglo-Scottish ballads to its present-day uses selling diet soda and laxatives, Davis profiles the major artists and the developmental changes of the music. An extensive discography and bibliography give ample resources for future exploration, while a "Blues Timeline" offers an at-a-glance overview of blues milestones in relation to corresponding events in art and history."

THIRD COAST  OutKast, Timbaland, and How Hip-Hop Became a Southern Thing, Sarig, Roni
15 Sarig, Roni THIRD COAST OutKast, Timbaland, and How Hip-Hop Became a Southern Thing
Da Capo Press 2007 0306814307 / 9780306814303 First Edition Softcover Very Good+ 
Clean, tight condition, no markings. Light soiling to bottom edge of pages. A little waviness to pages, but no damage (likely from just not being stored flat) . Very light edge/corner wear to cover. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 400 pages; "Though most casual fans know the story of hip-hop's birth in the ashes of the South Bronx, the story of the South's entry into the modern rap scene remains relatively unknown. Here, author and music writer Sarig (The Secret History of Rock) provides the "Dirty South" its first complete history, an ambitious tale featuring Southern industry luminaries like Pharrell Williams and Jermaine Dupri, as well as the acts mentioned in the subtitle. Sarig's chronicle boasts remarkable depth and breadth, covering every aspect of Southern hip-hop, including dozens-if not hundreds-of acts. Moving away from historical documentation to analysis can lead Sarig to make some questionable generalizations ("it's easy to observe that, today, the blues is almost entirely the province of middle-aged white people") , but his attention to the music itself reaches some dizzying pinnacles-as in deconstructing crunk lyrics to reveal connections to 11th century working-class Saxons. Throughout, Sarig is informative and entertaining, keeping an eye on the big picture while managing this huge swath of uncollected music history; though the necessary surfeit of details may wear out casual readers, Sarig ably connects the stories of record shops, roller discos and street corners from Houston to Miami to Virginia Beach."

Light edge & corner wear to cover, some corner curling. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 232 pages; This is the most serious and useful collection yet published of solo arias from oratorios, masses and cantatas. The literature was confined to work by major composers, and by-passes the dated oratorio literature found in previous collections. The most famous music is here, and so is interesting and less famous music by masters. There are new music engravings for each aria, and extensive historical notes and translations. Solo instrumental obbligato parts, which can be cut from the book, are included on appropriate selections. [650]
