pity is that most of those books are written some years ago and are by now kinda aged which doesn't of course lessen their value. so anybody care to write something?  :wink:
and does anybody know what's that signed photograph that came with the 'all crew muss big up'?

i'd be happy to write some comments on the history of the music for the new site if you wanted me to

the problem with all these things is that my views will be different from other people's ones. still it might be a useful thing to have on the site

it's a new edition of all crew - largely the same as the first one, with an update added on.

All Crews has (as you all know) been republished, and has new sections written by Belle-Fortune... And it's DEFINITELY worth getting.

Knowledge sell it through their site, I'm sure it's available otherplaces... Everyone should have a copy of the new edition, even if they have the old one already.
Never mind 2007's relick, RDB's rollin' into '09 with a total redesign. Big!

I can second that (is that even a correct expression?)
