Dylan on Dylan on Dylan on Dylan...

Did you know we have kind of a thing on Bob Dylan here at Unoppressive? Maybe it's the large life sized cardboard cutout in the window, or our close proximity to Cafe Wha?, or the 35+ different Dylan books dominating the wall of the music section, but if you've ever stopped in we're sure you've noticed a certain reverence held here for the life and works of Mr. Zimmerman.

So how about coming in and checking out our highly-recommended gorgeous hardcover edition of Dylan On Dylan, a collection of 29 fantastic interviews/conversations with the prolific singer/songwriter spanning 20 years, now for sale here at an economically-friendly $8.00.

Read it? Already have it? We got you covered. Let's run through a quick list, shall we?

And there's more than that, but damned if my fingers aren't getting tired. To get a better idea of our shrine to Dylan-related literature, stop into Unoppressive sometime at 34 Carmine St. between Bleeker and Bedford, open until at least 10pm weeknights, midnight on weekends. As always, all prices include tax, so leave your pennies at home.

LCD: The Art & Writing of WFMU-FM

For the music-minded, back in stock is The Best of LCD, edited by Dave the Spaz, a collection of material from the program guide/magazine put out by legendary freeform radio station 91.1 WFMU here in New York and New Jersey. Filled with art, design, comics, and articles from the magazine’s 26 issue run (premiering in 1986), LCD is a brilliant piece of print history for collectors or casual listeners alike. Pick it up for great art from the likes of Harvey Pekar and Richard Sala (along with scores of others), and articles ranging from “Why Playlists Shouldn’t Be Politically Correct” to “The Perfect Repressing”, or “The Step-By-Step Guide to Staying Unemployed”, down to my favorite, “Why Don Mclean (The ‘American Pie’ Guy) Is An Asshole”. Definitely pick this book up because we can't guarantee you how long it will last.

Retailing originally for a worthwhile $29.95, you can now pick up The Best Of LCD: The Art and Writing of WFMU 91.1fm here from Unoppressive for only $9.
