✺✺✺✺✺✺✺✺✺✺✺✺✺✺Lyle Owerko The Boombox Project: The Machines, The Music, And The Urban Underground Book

The Boombox Project is a vibrant look into the old school icon that helped shape the underground music movements of the 70's and 80's. Through this book, photographer Lyle Owerko collects more than just amazing images of these mythical machines (though there's plenty of those in here as well), he also offers an oral history of the boombox from a hip-hop standpoint via memories from people who lived it like Fab 5 Freddy, LL Cool J, Lisa Lisa, Kool Moe Dee, Adrock of the Beastie Boys, and others. The stories are accompanied by plenty of vintage photos from the time period of people dancing around, chilling with, and just listening to their boombox, as well as a stunning collection portraits of these once ubiquitous machines. Feautres 100 color and b&w photos and illustrations, plus foreword by Spike Lee. 160 pages total, hardcover. More>>>
