After his daughter was born prematurely in 2010, Burriesci set out to write a book for her eighteenth birthday. In short, honest, and simple letters, Burriesci teaches his daughter about thirty-two great books, from Plato to Karl Marx, and how their lessons have applied to his life. As someone who has spent a long and successful career advocating for great literature, Burriesci defends the titles in this series of tender and candid letters, rich in personal experience and full of humor. Dead White Guys is also a timely defense of the great books, arriving in the middle of a national debate about the fate of these books in high schools and universities around the country. Burriesci shows how the great books can enrich our lives as individuals, as citizens, and in our careers.

Studio Master, Official Digital Download, B&W

Passion is in actuality Peter Gabriel's soundtrack to the Martin Scorsese film The Last Temptation of Christ, retitled as a result of legal barriers; regardless of its name, however, there's no mistaking the record's stirring power. Like much of Gabriel's solo work, the album is a product of his continuing fascination with world music, which he employs here to create an exceptionally beautiful and atmospheric tapestry of sound perfectly evocative of the film's resonant spiritual drama; inspired by field recordings collected in areas as diverse as Turkey, Senegal, and Egypt, Passion achieves a cumulative effect clearly Middle Eastern in origin, yet its brilliant fusion of ancient and modern musics ultimately transcends both geography and time. Remarkably dramatic, even visual, it is not only Gabriel's best film work but deserving of serious consideration as his finest music of any kind; equally worthwhile is Passion – Sources, which assembles the original native recordings which served as his creative launching pad.

The renewed popularity of Afrobeat in dance music has been well documented with a number of compilations exploring some of the many original Afro funk fusions that have influenced today’s music. Strut take the idea forward with a definitive look at funky Lagos during the 1970s over 3CDs and 3LPs.
The project digs deep into the Nigerian archives, highlighting funky rarities from established names Fela Kuti (from his early days to his later work with Africa 70), King Sunny Ade and Sir Victor Uwaifo. We also take a look at the wide variety of funky fusions spanning the full spectrum of Nigerian tribes and dialects from the Sly Stone funk of Segun Bucknor and the raw Ibo rhythms of The Funkees to the more Muslim-influenced Hausa language grooves of Bala Miller. The set comes with a fully edited documentary as the third CD featuring exclusive interviews with many of the key figures in Lagos at the time from King Sunny Ade and Ebenezer Obey to Ginger Baker, Roy Ayers, Fela and Femi Kuti.
