"The newest book from SF's fave source of sedition, V/Search Publishing, has everything your zoot-suited little heart desires: jump-blues, rockabilly, big-band swing; dancers, hairstyles, cars, and clothes; directories to recordings, books, and films. Most important, it's got fabulous photos and interviews with everyone from Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to the New Morty Show to Lavay Smith to the Royal Crown Revue to just about any West Coast swinger who matters." -- SF Bay Guardian, May 6, 1998

Nonetheless, anyone who has founf the "hipper than thou" attitude generally espoused by Re/Serach through the years annoying is likely to find a certain deliciousness in it being relegated to the scrap heap of sociology studies. Based on what former contributors to Re/Search have to say about Vale's business practices (and I've found it interesting that in interviews, he alternates between talking about his past successes and how many books he used to sell and kvetching that he somehow never made any money from Re/Search - despite it having supported him for a few decades), it apparently couldn't happen to a more deserving publisher.
