A young English biographer is working on a book about the late writer, John Coetzee. He plans to focus on a period in the seventies when, the biographer senses, Coetzee was ´finding his feet as a writer´. He embarks on a series of interviews with people who were important to Coetzee - a married woman with whom he had an affair, his favourite cousin Margot, a Brazilian dancer whose daughter had English lessons with him, former friends and colleagues. Thus emerges a portrait of the young Coetzee as an awkward, bookish individual, regarded as an outsider within the family. His insistence on doing manual work, his long hair and beard, and rumours that he writes poetry evoke nothing but suspicion in the South Africa of the time.
(Relic) 24 tracks - The Marcels were one of the best doo-wop groups of the early sixties. Born and bred in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, this racially-mixed group established their own style of exaggerated bass vocals accenting sometimes frantic, double-time harmonies and riffs. They took a staid Rodgers and Hart 1934 standard, ´´Blue Moon,´´ and propelled it to #1 in an exciting rush up the 1961 charts. The Marcels were one of the first r&b groups to be honored with an LP release almost immediately on the heels of their initial chart topper. One listen to the April, 1961 Colpix ´´Blue Moon´´ LP proves that the Marcels were a class act. They had learned their r&b lessons from their predecessors very well, but they were far more than just mere imitators. Colpix stayed with them for three years and over a dozen singles, despite their dwindling fortunes after ´´Blue Moon,´´ ´´Summertime,´´ and ´´Heartaches.´´ This compact disc contains 24 prime cuts by the Marcels, many of which were early rehearsals and demos for future session possibilities. Their first manager, the late Jules Kruspir, thoroughly rehearsed the group and encouraged them to sing or practice what are now rock & roll standards. Several tantalizing tapes were found in Kruspir´s effects after he died. They eventually were purchased by Ed Engel of Crystal Ball Records in New York City, who issued the bulk of these songs on two Marcels´ Crystal Ball albums in the eighties.

This youthful collection relishes the thrill of being crazy for a certain boy, for a moment or for a lifetime. In Jere M. Fishback´s ´´A Beautiful Motorcycle´´, a young man shares a hotel room with his sister´s boyfriend and experiences a whole new kind of room service.

For an enthusiastic, just-of-age coed, prepping for college requires sizzling, sensual summertime studies. Susan has just turned 18, and she´s excited about starting college after the summer break. Just one thing tempers her excitement: her serious lack of experience with the opposite sex.

And, as in all areas of her life, Susan has every desire to excel.

As Susan´s invited inside, an obvious solution for her own personal dilemma strikes her: John must know exactly what´s expected of college-age girls. Luckily for Susan, John´s more than happy to help with her intimate request and offers himself as a patient tutor in the ways and methods of college extracurricular activities.
