• The Best of Laura Nyro: Stoned Soul Picnic

    The second retrospective album by Bronx-born musician Laura Nyro and the most comprehensive overview of her work to date. It was the last album Nyro released during her lifetime, and she died from ovarian cancer less than two months after its release.
  • Hot Rocks, 1964-1971

    1971 collection from the Rolling Stones, one of the biggest selling titles in their 50 year career. Features all the great hits spanning the years 1964 to 1971. Features 21 tracks. It's the rare greatest-hits album that takes on a life of its own. Generally, best-of collections are superseded by updated retrospectives. Hot Rocks is one of the rare exceptions to the rule. Originally released in 1972, it instantly became the Stones intro of choice, elbowing aside Big Hits, High Tide and Green Grass and Through the Past Darkly. Why? It happened to hit the racks when Mick and company were at their creative peak. The 21 tracks found here represent seven years of dizzying growth. From "Time is on My Side" through "Satisfaction" and "Let's Spend the Night Together," on to Sticky Fingers's "Brown Sugar" and "Wild Horses," Hot Rocks never lets up. The likes of Sucking in the '70s and Jump Back come and go, but this Stones overview will not be moved.
  • Lenny Kaye Presents Lightning Striking

    There are probably fewer pundits more qualified to opine upon popular music's past than Lenny Kaye. A keen observer of, and participant within, rock music's continued manifestations since it's birth pangs in the early 1950s, Kaye's deep knowledge, erudite analysis and infectious enthusiasm for the many tributaries whence and to where this behemoth of popular culture has flowed is something any aficionado should pay attention to. There is no better place to start than Lightning Striking, Kaye's new book that is part history, part memoir and one hundred percent engaging from start to finish. Like the book, it is a mixture of the familiar but essential and the fascinatingly unpredictable: in other words, not dissimilar to Kayes's curatorial triumph of yore Nuggets, the compilation that established the garage rock genre. The earliest entry is the Boswell Sisters' 1934 prophetic 'Rock And Roll', the most recent 'Gimme Chocolate!!" by hard rock/J-Pop hybrid Babymetal. In-between we hear a nuanced selection of the finest vintage R&B, pop, psychedelia, punk rock and heavy metal, from an intriguingly diverse selection of bedfellows. The sound quality is second to none, with plenty of ear-wrenching rarities - for instance, the unissued stereo take of the MC5's blitzkrieg 'Looking At You' peels paint faster than even the original mono A-Square single. Not to mention curios like 'Crazy Like A Fox', the author's very own 1966 "nugget if you dug it". Yes, "Lightning Striking" is the perfect companion to the tale Lenny tells, but it is also an energizing, inspiring listen in of itself, and a reminder once again of the life-affirming power of the music we all know and love. Hail, hail rock'n'roll!

  • New September 21! Pre-order today with your donation of $75 to WPKN! A radically new understanding of and practical approach to climate change by noted environmentalist Paul Hawken, creator of the New York Times bestseller Drawdown Regeneration offers a visionary new approach to climate change, one that weaves justice, climate, biodiversity, equity, and human dignity into a seamless tapestry of action, policy, and transformation that can end the climate crisis in one generation. It is the first book to describe and define the burgeoning regeneration movement spreading rapidly throughout the world. Regeneration describes how an inclusive movement can engage the majority of humanity to save the world from the threat of global warming, with climate solutions that directly serve our children, the poor, and the excluded. This means we must address current human needs, not future existential threats, real as they are, with initiatives that include but go well beyond solar, electric vehicles, and tree planting to include such solutions as the fifteen-minute city, bioregions, azolla fern, food localization, fire ecology, decommodification, forests as farms, and the number one solution for the world: electrifying everything. Paul Hawken and the nonprofit Regeneration Organization are launching a series of initiatives to accompany the book, including a streaming video series, curriculum, podcasts, teaching videos, and climate action software. Regeneration is the inspiring and necessary guide to inform the rapidly spreading climate movement.

  • The Essential Bob Dylan

    Pledge $85 32 songs and 2 great CD's of Bob Dylan. I like the newer songs such as "Mississippi" and "Make You Feel Like Love" instead of "Silvio" and some others. My only complaint is that I still wished it had "Shelter From The Storm" which was taken off this collection for some other songs. However, I also recommend getting the album Blood on the Tracks which has "Shelter From The Storm" among other greats. I also recommend The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan for such Dylan greats as "Masters of War", "Girl From North Country", and "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall". I also recommend Bringing It All Back Home album for the Dylan classic, "It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)" and "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue". But if you're looking for just a good Dylan compilation this is perfect without buying every Dylan album this is perfect.
  • A practical and comprehensive guide to surviving the greatest disaster of our time, from New York Times bestselling self-help author and beloved CBS Sunday Morning science and technology correspondent David Pogue. You might not realize it, but we’re already living through the beginnings of climate chaos. In Arizona, laborers now start their day at 3 a.m. because it’s too hot to work past noon. Chinese investors are snapping up real estate in Canada. Millennials have evacuation plans. Moguls are building bunkers. Retirees in Miami are moving inland. In How to Prepare for Climate Change, bestselling self-help author David Pogue offers sensible, deeply researched advice for how the rest of us should start to ready ourselves for the years ahead. Pogue walks readers through what to grow, what to eat, how to build, how to insure, where to invest, how to prepare your children and pets, and even where to consider relocating when the time comes. (Two areas of the country, in particular, have the requisite cool temperatures, good hospitals, reliable access to water, and resilient infrastructure to serve as climate havens in the years ahead.) He also provides wise tips for managing your anxiety, as well as action plans for riding out every climate catastrophe, from superstorms and wildfires to ticks and epidemics. Timely and enlightening, How to Prepare for Climate Change is an indispensable guide for anyone who read The Uninhabitable Earth or The Sixth Extinction and wants to know how to make smart choices for the upheaval ahead.
