First Avenue: Minnesota's Mainroom
First Avenue
Minnesota's Mainroom
Hardcover      ISBN: 1681340445

One of the longest running clubs in American rock 'n' roll, First Avenue in Minneapolis finally gets the rock-star treatment it deserves in print. This book chronicles the club's storied past, beginning with its impressive inaugural show in April 1970 (Joe Cocker's "Mad Dogs & Englishmen" tour) and through its oft-maligned disco era of the late 1970s. In the 1980s, it earned global attention as the hub of Prince's "Purple Rain" and the incubator for widely revered, wild-eyed indie-rock bands such as the Replacements, H sker D , Soul Asylum, and Babes in Toyland. The Ramones and R.E.M., Chrissie Hynde and Lauryn Hill, Wilco and the Wu-Tang Clan, and hundreds more played the hallowed halls of First Avenue and 7th Street Entry, and all are immortalized in this volume.

First Avenue survived corporate competitors, bankruptcy, and a bitter ownership battle to become one of the most successful independent clubs in the country and ground zero to Minneapolis's thriving community of hip-hop and indie-rock acts. Amidst all that history, the book is interlaced with anecdotes, quotes, and occasionally cloudy memories from musicians, employees, and regulars--many of whom are as unique as the club itself. Chock full of concert photos and memorabilia collected from professional photographers and average fans alike, the book is a lavish celebration of a rock 'n' roll landmark.

Cowboys Don't Do Lunch: The Photographs of Herb Cohen
Cowboys Don't Do Lunch
The Photographs of Herb Cohen
Hardcover      ISBN: 1940743540

This book features skillfully detailed photographs of the last of the real cowboys of Cave Creek, Arizona from when the area was in transition from a full-time cattle ranching community to an incorporated town. Despite the rapid modernization of life in the 20th Century, through the 1970s the inhabitants of this community remained relatively unchanged in their mannerisms and way of life. Herb Cohen was invited by the cowboys he photographed to be a participant in their lives. In addition, he also was equally welcomed into families on the Navajo Reservation. Based on these connections Cohen captured images few had access to at the time. His photos reveal the historical and cultural significance of the people that settled these regions.

Heyday
35 Years of Music in Minneapolis
Paperback      ISBN: 1681341239

Daniel Corrigan has been the photographer on the Minneapolis music scene since 1981--just as the scene was coming to life. As both a freelancer and the official house photographer for the legendary club First Avenue, he has captured thousands of live concerts, shot countless band promo photos, and was behind the camera for many of the best-known and most beloved album covers by local artists. This retrospective, culled from his personal archive of tens of thousands of photos, presents a unique perspective into a vibrant world, through nearly 500 evocative black-and-white and color images.

Featuring an introductory essay by music journalist Danny Sigelman, Heyday puts into context Corrigan's role as a chronicler of rock-and-roll and illustrates the array of talented artists who have come through the Twin Cities, across a wide range of musical styles and genres. In addition to the iconic images from Corrigan's oeuvre, the book offers a look at lesser-known gems as well as outtakes from legendary photo shoots. Supplemental essays explore Corrigan's personal recollections of specific shoots, concerts, and interactions with musicians to provide a rare glimpse into this significant yet largely unsung fixture of the Minneapolis music scene.

"Heyday is a feast for the eyes and ears that time and again speaks to Corrigan's singular gift as a photographer...Corrigan's obvious intimacy with his subjects and love for the music and scene shine through in every shot."
--Jim Walsh, MinnPost

This new paperback edition of the best-selling Heyday features as additional ten pages of photos not contained in the original hardcover--including recent shots as well as forgotten gems from deep within the Corrigan archive.

Double Exposure: Images of Black Minnesota in the 1940s
Double Exposure
Images of Black Minnesota in the 1940s
Hardcover      ISBN: 1681340941

After serving in World War II, John Glanton returned home to Minnesota and began taking his camera around the streets, parks, clubs, restaurants, and private homes of Minneapolis, capturing the sights and scenes of everyday life for African Americans in the city. The images--from intimate portraits to public gatherings--reveal a dynamic and diverse community at a time when the nation was entering the postwar boom but before the civil rights movement had taken root. Glanton's photos offer a rare look into the lives and lifestyles of families and individuals often left out of histories of Minnesota's past, showing people at work and play, young and old, happy and sad. The images highlight black-owned businesses of the day, the music and club scene, and weddings and other family occasions to depict the experiences of African American people as presented through the lens of an African American photographer.

Long forgotten in the garage of a family member, the photo negatives were recently rediscovered and digitized. A selection of 200 of the more than 800 images are featured here, along with commentary that further illuminates the lives and experiences of African Americans in postwar Minnesota.
