Queen – Album by Album by Martin Popoff from Quarto Books
Email: [email protected]
Subject: QUEEN
Deadline for entries: 11/1 at noon

A thoughtfully curated and gloriously illustrated retrospective of the band’s studio releases, Queen, comes just in time for the 45th anniversary of their debut LP and biopic.

In this new installment in Voyageur Press’s Album by Album series, rock journo Martin Popoff convenes a cast of 19 Queen experts and superfans to discuss all 15 of the band’s studio albums (including their soundtrack for the 1980 film Flash Gordon). Panelists include Queen experts, rock journalists, musicians, and record industry figures. The results are freewheeling discussions delving into the individual songs, the circumstances that surrounded the recording of each album, the band and contemporary rock contexts into which they were released, and more.

The engaging text of this beautifully designed book is illustrated throughout with rare live performance and candid offstage photography, as well as scads of rare Queen ephemera.

AC/DC: 1973 – 1980 by Jeff Apter from Quarto Books
Email: [email protected]
Subject: ACDC
Deadline for entries: 12/1 at noon

To fans and critics alike, the years 1973 to 1980 – the Bon Scott era – are the most significant of AC/DC’s five-decade career. In a prolific and frequently brilliant run, they recorded six studio albums, established a diehard fanbase that stretched from Australia to the UK, Europe to North America, toured relentlessly, and created no small amount of controversy and chaos.

Illustrated throughout with rare photographs from the era, this book documents all the key events of this frenetic time, beginning with the band’s very first shows in the bloodhouses of suburban Sydney – even before the name AC/DC had been dreamed up by Margaret Young, Malcolm and Angus’s big sister – and culminating with 1979’s Highway to Hell, the album that paved the way for the mammoth success of Back in Black and all that was to follow, and the untimely death of Bon Scott, both an end and a new beginning for the band.
