  1. 33 1/3 Volume 65: Big Star's Radio City

    33 1/3 Volume 65: Big Star's Radio City

    $14.95

    Radio City (the book) is the improbable but true story of an ardent fan who gets close enough to Alex Chilton, the prime architect of the best power pop album ever made outside of Abbey Road Studios, to see what’s on the other side of genius, fame, and expectations. Learn More
  2. 33 1/3 Vol. 66: Madness' One Step Beyond...

    33 1/3 Volume 66: Madness' One Step Beyond...

    $10.95

    Surprisingly few books have been published about Madness, considering the vast number of records they have sold worldwide over the years. Learn More
  3. 33 1/3 Vol. 67: Eno's Another Green World

    33 1/3 Volume 67: Brian Eno's Another Green World

    $12.95

    The serene, delicate songs on Another Green World sound practically meditative, but the album itself was an experiment fueled by adrenaline, panic, and pure faith. Learn More
  4. 33 1/3 Volume 68: Flaming Lips' Zaireeka

    33 1/3 Volume 68: Flaming Lips' Zaireeka

    $10.95

    ZAIREEKA is the anti-headphone and the anti-mp3. It purposely makes the two biggest developments in end-user music in the last 30 years irrelevant. Learn More
  5. 33 1/3 Volume 69: The Magnetic Fields' 69 Love Songs

    33 1/3 Volume 69: The Magnetic Fields' 69 Love Songs

    $14.95

    Part manifesto, part publicity stunt, part limited edition object (at least in its ridiculously miniscule initial pressing), 69 LOVE SONGS is also a survey of recent popular culture, high and low. Learn More
  6. 33 1/3 Volume 6: Pink Floyd's The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn

    33 1/3 Volume 6: Pink Floyd's The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn

    $14.95

    The Piper At The Gates of Dawn is a wondrous creation often seen through the distorted view of later events. Learn More
  7. 33 1/3: Facing Future

    33 1/3 Volume 70: Israel Iz Kamakawiwo'ole's Facing Future

    $10.95

    Even at four in the morning, the strip clubs and watering holes surrounding the Honolulu studio were still hopping. The recording engineer heard a car pull into the lot, and soon the biggest man he had ever seen walked in. When he stepped into the studio, the floated floor shifted beneath the engineer's feet. Israel Kamakawiwo'ole engulfed the engineer's hand in his and said, "Hi, bruddah." Learn More
  8. 33 1/3 Vol. 71: Public Enemy's It Takes A Nation...

    33 1/3 Volume 71: Public Enemy's It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back

    $12.95

    Christopher Weingarten provides a thrilling account of how the Bomb Squad produced such a singular-sounding record: engineering, sampling, scratching, constructing, deconstructing and reconstructing - even occasionally stomping on vinyl that sounded too clean. Learn More
  9. 33 1/3 Vol. 72: Wowee Zowee

    33 1/3 Volume 72: Pavement's Wowee Zowee

    $14.95

    Pavement wrapped up at Easley Recording in Memphis. They mixed the tracks and recorded overdubs in New York. They took a step back and assessed the material. It was a wild scene. Learn More
  10. 33 1/3 Vol. 73: Highway To Hell

    33 1/3 Volume 73: AC/DC's Highway To Hell

    $12.95

    Released in 1979, AC/DC's "Highway To Hell" was the infamous last album recorded with singer Bon Scott, who died of alcohol poisoning in London in February of 1980. Officially chalked up to "Death by Misadventure," Learn More
  11. 33 1/3: Van Dyke Parks' Song Cycle

    33 1/3 Volume 74: Van Dyke Parks' Song Cycle

    $10.95

  12. 33 1/3: Spiderland

    33 1/3 Volume 75: Slint's Spiderland

    $12.95

    Of all the seminal albums to come out in 1991 - the year of Nevermind, Loveless, Ten and Out of Time, among others - none was quieter, both in volume and influence, than Spiderland, and no band more mysterious than Slint. Learn More
  13. 33 1/3: Kid A

    33 1/3 Volume 76: Radiohead's Kid A

    $12.95

    It was virtually impossible to ignore Radiohead's KID A when it was released in early October of 2000. But the album was more than just a ten-track collection of songs written by five musicians from Oxfordshire, more than the "weird" follow-up to the critics' fashionable go-to record of choice, OK COMPUTER, more than what the VILLAGE VOICE described as "the biggest, warmest recorded go-fuck-yourself in recent memory." KID A was an event. Learn More
  14. 33 1/3: Tusk

    33 1/3 Volume 77: Fleetwood Mac's Tusk

    $12.95

    A prismatic look at one of the most unusual albums ever released by a major rock band, with fresh input from Lindsey Buckingham. Learn More
  15. 33 1/3: Pretty Hate Machine

    33 1/3 Volume 78: Nine Inch Nails' Pretty Hate Machine

    $12.95

    This is the story of the depraved, no-future land called the American Midwest in the 1980s, and of a boy who rose from a dismal town (population 2300) to become one of the biggest selling musicians of the 1990s. Learn More
  16. 33 1/3: Chocolate & Cheese

    33 1/3 Volume 79: Ween's Chocolate And Cheese

    $12.95

    Ween now seems like a permanent fixture on the pop-cultural landscape, but when the band first hit MTV in the early '90s, their longevity wasn't so secure. Learn More
  17. Abba's Abba Gold

    33 1/3 Volume 7: Abba's Abba Gold

    $9.95

    Perhaps more than any other Greatest Hits compilation, Abba Gold has come to define a band's career on one disk. Learn More
  18. 33 1/3: Some Girls

    33 1/3 Volume 81: The Rolling Stones' Some Girls

    $12.95

    It’s October 1977, and the Rolling Stones are in a Paris recording studio. They’re under siege. Keith Richards’s legal troubles after his arrest for heroin possession threaten the band’s future, and the broad consensus among rock aficionados is that the band will never again reach the heights of Exile on Main Street. Learn More
  19. 33 1/3: You're Living All Over Me

    33 1/3 Volume 82: Dinosaur Jr.'s You're Living All Over Me

    $12.95

    1985. Dinosaur, still without the Jr. Not hardcore anymore, but not yet anything else either. First live shows: fearsomely loud. First record, a fearsome mess: a raw miscellany thrown together from small-town ennui, the apathy of the middle classes, and all the things teenage boys are obsessed with. Learn More
  20. 33 1/3: Marquee Moon

    33 1/3 Volume 83: Television's Marquee Moon

    $12.95

    Two kids in their early twenties walk down the Bowery on a spring afternoon, just as the proprietor of a club hangs a sign with the new name for his venue. Learn More
  21. 33 1/3: Amazing Grace

    33 1/3 Volume 84: Aretha Franklin's Amazing Grace

    $12.95

    For two nights in January 1972, Aretha Franklin sang at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles, while tape recorders and film cameras rolled. Learn More
  22. 33 1/3: Dummy

    33 1/3 Volume 85: Portishead's Dummy

    $12.95

    This is a thoroughly researched exploration of one of the most original, unexpected, and durable British albums of the 1990s. An album which distilled a genre from the musical, cultural, and social ether, Portishead's "Dummy" was such a complete artistic achievement that its ubiquitous successes threatened to exhaust its own potential. Learn More
  23. 33 1/3: Fear Of Music

    33 1/3 Volume 86: Talking Heads' Fear Of Music

    $12.95

    Fear of Music, the third album by Talking Heads, was recorded and released in 1979. It is, like each of their first four albums, a masterpiece. Edgy, paranoid, funky, addictive, rhythmic, repetitive, spooky, and fun - with Brian Eno's production, it's a record that bursts out of the downtown scene that birthed the band, and hints at the directions (positive and negative) they'd take in the near future. Learn More
  24. 33 1/3: Flood

    33 1/3 Volume 88: They Might Be Giants' Flood

    $14.95

    For a few decades now, They Might Be Giants’ album Flood has been a beacon (or at least a nightlight) for people who might rather read than rock out, who care more about science fiction than Slayer, who are more often called clever than cool. Neither the band’s hip origins in the Lower East Side scene nor Flood’s platinum certification can cover up the record's singular importance at the geek fringes of culture. Learn More
  25. 33 1/3: Andrew W.K.'s I Get Wet

    33 1/3 Volume 89: Andrew W.K.'s I Get Wet

    $14.95

    "It's Time To Party," the first track off of I Get Wet, opens with a rapid-fire guitar line — nothing fancy, just a couple crunchy power chords to acclimate the ears — repeated twice before a booming bass drum joins in to provide a quarter-note countdown. Learn More
