33 1/3 is a new series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the last 40 years. Focusing on one album rather than an artist's entire output, the books dispense with the standard biographical background that fans know already, and cut to the heart of the music on each album. The authors provide fresh, original perspectives - often through their access to and relationships with the key figures involved in the recording of these albums. By turns obsessive, passionate, creative, and informed, the books in this series demonstrate many different ways of writing about music. (A task which can be, as Elvis Costello famously observed, as tricky as dancing about architecture.) What binds this series together, and what brings it to life, is that all of the authors - musicians, scholars, and writers - are deeply in love with the album they have chosen.

Review:

'Both a student and a fan of Prince, Matos integrates the particulars of Prince's rise to fame including the release of the double LP Sign 'O' the Times with an endearing and at times hilarious telling of his own coming of age in the suburbs of Prince's Minneapolis.' --Mark Baumgarten, Willamette Week, 1/5/05

About the Author:

Michaelangelo Matos takes a personal look at Prince's magnum opus of 1987, the greatest and most idiosyncratic double album of its era.
