Product Description

About the Author

First published in December 2001, Brooklyn-born Wax Poetics hit newsstands with a new vision for music journalism, creating a bridge between the past and present of hip-hop, jazz, funk, soul, reggae, disco, and Latin music. Although originally created for a concentrated market of music aficionados, the magazine’s audience has grown exponentially, making musical anthropologists out of average music listeners and spawning a soul renaissance, complete with comeback tours and sophomore efforts. Wax Poetics illuminates the dark corners of our sonic past, while also striving to give new and innovative artists the credit they truly deserve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love, love this book! Sept. 17 2010
By Mika B. Waller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has become an essential item on our coffee table. My husband is an avid LP collector. I know nothing about records. But, we both thought this book was fantastic. Once we got it, we couldn't stop turning the pages. We've left it on our coffee table for the past month. All of our friends who come over start thumbing through and laughing hysterically. They won't put it down until they've gone through the whole thing and picked out their own favorite weird album. It's been the best conversation piece we've ever had. Some of the album album covers are amazing, while others are amazingly...AMAZINGLY...bad. That's the joy of it. Where else can you find art to go with the albums like "My Wife Bought a Taxi," "Yodeling Praises Unto the Lord," "Music to Massage Your Mate By," and "Music for your plants"? I just wish the pages were bigger - I would have loved to see these things the same size as the actual album covers. It would be fun to actually hear some of these albums...I'm curious if the music is as weird and interesting as the cover art. It makes me want to start going to yard sales and picking through record piles to make my own collection. For now, I'll just go back to this book every few days. It always puts a smile on my face.
