Various Artists - The Little Black Leather Book of Rock 'N' Roll
Review by Gary Hill
It's only partially black, definitely not leather, but it is certainly little and undoubtedly about rock 'n' roll. This is a pocket-sized volume of quotes about all sorts of topics surrounding the musical style that started out as rock 'n' roll and later became just plain rock.

Various Artists - Using Your Art and The Media To Comfort People written by Anne Leighton
Review by Gary Hill
This is a little change of pace for MSJ. Normally we review books "about" music. This book however is less about music than it is a resource for musicians.

Various Artists - Turn Up the Strobe: The KLF, The Jams, The Timelords a History written by Ian Shirley
Review by Gary Hill

I have to admit that my previous experience with the artists documented here is very minor. I mean, as a “Doctor Who” fan, I love The Timelords hit “Doctorin’ the TARDIS.”

Various Artists - The Suite Music World of Gary Hill: Collected Articles Originally Published at Suite101 written by Gary Hill
Review by Greg Olma
This book is not really new material but rather a collection of Gary Hill's articles for a website called “Suite 101."  Some might not like dated material, but I find these types of books enjoyable for a number of reasons.

Review by Gary Hill

The premise is simple: list 200 albums that are under-appreciated. When Jim Santora started the project he set some ground rules.

Various Artists - The Sound of Things to Come: An Audible History of the Science Fiction Film written by Trace Reddell
Review by Gary Hill

One of the problems with doing book reviews for Music Street Journal is that the deadlines for making the issues mean that I don't have a lot of time for reading.
