33 1/3

My latest find is AbFab!!!!!!

33 1/3 is a series of small books each dedicated solely to one album, such as Born in the USA (though I wish someone had done Born to Run), London Calling (coming out in April), Led Zepplin's IV, Meat is Murder, ABBA Gold, Let it Be, and on and on and on. Last night I bought Armed Forces, the book about Elvis Costello's album. I haven't read much of it, though I noticed that the author stated he is NOT a historian, NOT a musicologist, and does NOT care about Costello's personal life so I'm kind of wondering he could possibly have left to write about. I hope it's good. Because that album has some of my favorite EC songs, though (ironically) I didn't recognize the cover when I saw it! I thought Armed Forces was the Elvis album but I didn't want to look like a fool and get all excited about it and then be shown it was someone else! I'll let you know if it's any good and then I'm going to get Ramones!

Sounds intriguing. I'll look out for the ABBA and Let It Be ones. :)
