“My circle of liner notes junkies runs deep, and we spend many hours dissecting the chapters in Brian Coleman’s Check the Technique series. FINALLY someone has put in perspective the stuff I have been DYING to know about!!!! I can’t get enough.”
– Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson
“A fantastic guide for all we do.”
– Chuck D
Presenting never-before-told, behind-the-scenes histories ranging from influential ‘80s masterpieces like DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s "He’s The DJ, I’m The Rapper" and 3rd Bass’ "The Cactus Album" to ‘90s classics like Ice Cube’s "AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted," Mos Def’s and Talib Kweli’s "Are Black Star" and Dr. Octagon’s "Dr. Octagonecologyst," the book’s approach is one that Coleman calls Invisible Liner Notes – retracing the story of an album step by step, in collaboration with the artists themselves.
** Also available in discounted “bundles” with "Check the Technique Volume 1" (2007) and "Rakim Told Me" (2005) - both also by Brian Coleman. See separate product pages.
