(BBNC) Sly & The Family Stone: One of the most innovative groups popular music has ever known, a band that instigated a musical revolution! Led by Sylvester ´Sly Stone´ Stewart, The Family Stone´s personnel was black and white, and male and female, and black and white, making it likely the first fully integrated group in the history of popular music. Starting in 1966, their sound was a unique, unknown fusion of soul, jazz, rock, R&B and psychedelia. Sly himself was a master musician who wrote, arranged and produced all the group´s material, fashioning ingenious musical arrangements filled with syncopated rhythm, pop melody and unexpected harmony. This book covers the entire discography of Sly & The Family Stone. It is a complete career overview, from the first gospel recording by the Stewart Four, through to Sly´s most recent releases, as well as each members solo work in the years before and since, illustrated with vinyl releases from all over the world. It´s the book all Sly fans have been waiting for. As a special bonus, copies come with a 45 reproduction of the hyper-rare Stewart Four 78 from 1952.

When 24-year-old twins Laurie and Joseph Ercolani inherit a bundle upon the death of their estranged father, they learn their sailing-enthusiast father also left each an identical sailing yacht. The twins have different ideas about what to do with their inheritance. Laurie sees it as an opportunity to fulfill her dream of making a movie. Joe sees it as seed-money for a get-rich-quick scheme. While one twin films a sexy movie against the backdrop of the beautiful Caribbean Sea, the other figures a felonious way of making a couple million bucks in pre-Katrina New Orleans. Slick Time is a sexy caper novel with a kidnapping, an extortion, the filming of an erotic movie, bungling FBI agents, a savvy NOPD detective, a private-eye known as the most dangerous man in New Orleans, as well as the Lusca - a sea monster inhabiting the Atlantis Blue Hole outside Kemps Bay, The Bahamas. There is a ruthless criminal who calls himself Hardacre, a sly mastermind who calls himself Slick, a host of pretty women and an alluring special agent with long brown hair, dark brown eyes and the intelligence to figure it all out. Too bad no one will listen to her. The story is fast-paced with wit, humor, sex, and sharp dialogue. 1. Language: English. Narrator: A. W. Miller.

Welcome to Scotland, a country famous for its whisky, the Highlands, its castles, and, of course...its ghosts!The Phantom Society is a ghost-hunting game in which you play as sly spirits seeking to ruin a manor hotel or, if you prefer, intrepid ectoplasm hunters who are a bit destructive around the edges but who also never falter in pursuit of their prey. For the ghosts, the goal is to inflict at least £45,000 of damage (in tribute to Special 45 Old Faydhutee Single Malt) on the manor, whether it is inflicted by the ghosts or the hunters. The ghost hunters want to stop the ghosts before they achieve their objective.The dual-level game board represents a manor floor composed of 36 rooms, with each room being a tile representing a value from £1,000 to £6,000, each of the four ghosts corresponds to a room type and will hide beneath a tile of this type, starting its devastation of the hotel by removing tiles adjacent to the one it´s hidden beneath. The ghost hunters must try to determine where the ghosts are hiding based upon the tiles destroyed. While doing this, though, the ghost hunters will also remove tiles thus destroying them and adding to the total damage to see whether a ghost is hidden beneath.The ghost hunters must think carefully and logically over which tiles to remove while the ghosts have to use cunning and psychology in order to cloud their investigation and remain concealed. Will the manor come through this madness intact?

A pulse-pounding thriller perfect for fans of Lisa Gardner and Mary Higgins Clark with a sly nod toward Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film Rear Window, Someone Is Watching boasts the extraordinary edge-of-your-seat storytelling of best-selling author Joy Fielding at the height of her powers. As a special investigator for a hotshot Miami law firm, Bailey Carpenter is smart, savvy, and fearless. When she’s assigned to spy on a deadbeat dad in the middle of the night, Bailey thinks nothing of the potential dangers, only that she needs to gather evidence. Then she is blindsided - attacked and nearly killed. Now, the firm grip Bailey once had on her life is shaken. Her nightmares merge into her waking hours and she’s unable to venture beyond her front door without panicking. A veritable prisoner in her own home, Bailey is uncertain whom she can trust. But old habits die hard, and soon Bailey finds a new use for her idle binoculars: casually observing from her window neighbouring buildings and other people’s lives. This seemingly harmless diversion becomes a guilty pleasure when Bailey fixates on the handsome guy across the street - until she realises that he is also watching her. Suddenly she must confront the terrifying possibility that he may be the man who shattered her life. Though crippled by fear, Bailey knows she can’t ignore her suspicions and risk leaving a predator at large. With the police making no headway in solving her case, she’s determined to overcome her terror and reclaim the power she lost by unmasking her attacker and taking him down herself. But it’s a harrowing battle that threatens to wreck Bailey’s credibility, compromise an investigation, and maybe even claim her sanity. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christina Traister.
