ABOUT THE ISSUE:

A Tribe Called Quest

Wax Poetics Issue 65 is going back to our roots with 21 pages dedicated to A Tribe Called Quest’s debut album, People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, including an oral history with original founding members Q-Tip, Phife Dawg (in his final interview), Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Jarobi, as well as “fifth member” and iconic engineer Bob Power! Rare and classic photos by Ernie Paniccioli and Janette Beckman, as well as pics from the personal collection of Ali Shaheed Muhammad.

David Bowie

Back cover feature explores David Bowie’s time in Philly, recording David Live and much of his R&B masterpiece, Young Americans—at the iconic Sigma Sound Studios used by Gamble & Huff and countless Philly soul acts. The in-depth, 20-page story is told with the help of producer Tony Visconti; pianist Mike Garson; model, muse, and singer Ava Cherry; singer Robin Clark, and her husband, guitarist and collaborator Carlos Alomar. Rare photos of Bowie at Sigma by photographer Dagmar! We also offer a four-page “David in Philly” timeline and a five-page interview with Bowie photographer Steve Schapiro.

Northern Soul

In-depth history of England's soul club scene with excellent photos documenting the DJs and dancers.

Also: 
Organist and “Why Can’t We Live Together” songwriter Timmy Thomas; bassist and jazz-futurist Esperanza Spalding; singer/rapper Anderson .Paak; singer Dornik; and Hawiian music blog and label Aloha Got Soul.
