We’re about to publish 3 more books! #104 (Devo’s Freedom of Choice), #105 (Dead Kennedy’s Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables), and #106 (Koji Kondo’s Super Mario Bros Soundtrack) will be available May 21st. One hundred and six!!!
In our old age we’re feeling wrinkly and forgetful but pretty satisfied with the life we’ve lead. Still, in many ways the life of this series is just beginning! We have an open call coming up this summer and the email queries are coming in by the boat load. To reiterate here, we are NOT currently accepting proposal but will be in JUNE of 2015.
Reflecting on our first 100 books, we did an okay job of covering the infinite possibilities of albums. We could have used more women (both artists and authors), definitely more R&B, and sure, we had a few missteps.
So what’s next? What ethereal, ground-breaking, seminal, pastoral, brilliant, albatross-like records deserve the 33 1/3 treatment?
There are still classics up for grabs: Astral Weeks, London Calling, and The Idiot immediately come to mind. What about newer game changers? Wu-Tang? Bjork? Spacemen 3? Pulp? The Diplomats? Amy Winehouse? De La Soul? Kendrick Lamar?
We’re genuinely interested in what our readers want to read.
