Carroll was a New York poet living in California when punk exploded in the late 1970s. He rightly sensed that punk was as much a lyrical stance as a musical one. Inspired by contemporaries like Patti Smith and Richard Hell, Carroll found himself a band and started spewing his literate and often fatalistic verse over a solid 4/4 beat. His surprise 1980 hit "People Who Died" sounded both shocking and exciting as it roared out of bored radios all across America. The rest of this guitar-heavy set including the classic "Wicked Gravity" and the previously unreleased "Differing Touch" paints similarly edgy portraits of lurkers and fringe dwellers. The rote rock backing occasionally gets a little tepid, but Carroll's bitter-junkie tongue burns throughout.

Renamed the Jon Tiven Group (formerly Jon Tiven's Ego Trip), his second album finds him once again walking the fine line between blues and soul music. With guest appearances from Simon Kirke, Jim Carroll, Peter Wolf, Billy Ray Martin, and Sir Mack Rice, Tiven splits the album between soul tunes and blues with a smattering of rock & roll to spice things up. Like the first album, Tiven wrote most of this with Don Covay, Jim Carroll, and Mick Taylor with the exception of an unreleased Van Morrison tune, "If You Rock Me." A solid effort. Alan Merrill sings.

What seemed to have been fanciful exaggeration has since been transformed into spectacular reality. Diahann Carroll has made the entertainment world her personal province. A highly combustible diversification of her talent is deceptively packaged in this slim, dark-eyed, stunning young woman. Since her notable debut, at 19, in the Harold Arlen - Truman Capote musical "House Of Flowers", this regal young lady has become not only a singer of refreshing originality, but at the same time she has matured into a persuasive stage personality and a convincing motion picture actress. Here, in Nobody Sees Me Cry, she makes her record album debut.

Jim Crow Terminals: The Desegregation of American Airports (Politics and Culture in the Twentieth-Century South Ser.) by Anke Ortlepp

Historical accounts of racial discrimination in transportation have focused until now on trains, buses, and streetcars and their respective depots, terminals, stops, and other public accommodations. It is essential to add airplanes and airports to this narrative, says Anke Ortlepp. Air travel stands at the center of the twentieth century’s transportation revolution, and airports embodied the rapidly mobilizing, increasingly prosperous, and cosmopolitan character of the postwar United States.
