    This is easily one of the most fascinating and entertaining books I have ever read. I read it obsessively, wide eyed and full of joy. A strange and glorious trip into a world of music beyond the everyday and the predictable. Features incredible interviews with Jello Biafra (a record collecting maniac) Ken Nordine (of Word Jazz infamy) Robert Moog, Yma Sumac, Elisabeth Waldo, and more.

Read all about the insanity that is "The Click Kids-Jesus is a Soul Man" and "Barbara, The Gray Witch", and "Stompin' Tom and The Hockey Song" just to pick a few favorites. This book will have you running all over town to get on your hands and knees and sift through thrift store record bins. I used to have the CD that accompanied this book, but I have no idea what happened to it. I can only hope that it is somewhere waiting for some lucky person to snatch it up and have their world exploded, in the best of ways.

    Volume 2 of this remarkable series on music one doesn't normally think about. This series was the first to give attention to the world of Exotica and its importance to its then culture as well as now. There are two way at looking at Exotica. Kitsch or as serious composition. I look at it as a serious music form - and so does Vale and Co. Also fascinating insight into the world of record collecting.

    All serious record collectors need to read this! The first books to really talk about Space Age Pop, Outsider Music, and other then undefined genres. Amazing.
