Product description

Review

As featured in Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, The A.V. Club, Nerdist, Gizmodo, Ultimate Classic Rock, and more.

Lovingly printed, often full-page scenes that are woozily kinetic, arrestingly intimate and cinematic in their framing. The book is, indeed, black and white all over, from the crisp, glossy images to the sharp, museum-gift-shop design. The not-so-surprising twist in the gorgeous coffee-table book is that there was more artistry there than we were lead to believe. The truth is, [Al's] self-effacing persona conceals one of the late 20th and early 21st century's greatest bodies of cultural critique - even if it's in comedy-song form.--The Denver Post

'Weird Al' Yankovic has never been out of fashion, but the new coffee table tome Black & White & Weird All Over preserves the beloved singer/songwriter's vintage '80s lewks. Spanning 1983 to 1986 -- after Dr. Demento and before UHF -- these rare photos come directly from the archive of Jon 'Bermuda' Schwartz, Yankovic's drummer and personal shutterbug. Schwartz snapped away while his pal filmed the classic videos for 'Ricky' and 'I Love Rocky Road, ' and mixed his accordion-heavy 1986 album, Polka Party!, providing an up-close-and-personal perspective as Weird Al's star went supernova.--Yahoo!'s It List (Best in Pop Culture / Week of Nov 16, 2020)

The satirical singer/songwriter 'Weird Al' Yankovic and his entourage goof up a storm in this album of behind-the-scenes photographs. The sense of exuberant creativity and fun that comes through in these photos will appeal to Yankovic's many fans.--Kirkus Reviews

One of the 10 best music books of the year! --Exclaim!

"The last several decades have been an amazing ride. More than once--an annoying number of times, actually--Jon has warned me, 'Someday I'm going to write a book about all this!' It became a bit of a running joke. But now he's actually made good on the threat. It's a fine snapshot--actually, several hundred snapshots--of what life was like for us in the '80s.--Weird Al Yankovic

"I was excited to get the book because I still shoot black-and-white film myself, and carry my camera on my shoulder on every movie I make, documenting the whole process. These shots are terrific and look great in the book!"--Rian Johnson, Director/Writer, Knives Out & Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Weird Al's drummer takes you into the studio, backstage, and offstage for the making of a superstar. Hey, I was there too--but Bermuda brought his camera!--Dr. Demento

Gorgeous. Black & White & Weird All Over is well worth the admission price, and it has instantly become one of my most treasured art books to arrive in recent years.--Movieweb

True to its name, this book features an almost entirely unseen trove of monochromatic photos taken by Schwartz - all capturing Al, his band and collaborators in the studio, on the road and in production of some of the funniest videos of MTV's golden age.--The Second Disc

Black & White & Weird All Over documents Yankovic's rise in comedy fame since the 1980s, capturing all the effort and fun behind his Grammy-winning music.--The Plain Dealer

An insider's look at 'Weird Al' Yankovic history. While the book chronicles the behind-the-scenes moments of events like the video shoots for 'Ricky, ' 'I Love Rocky Road' and 'Eat It, ' as well as studio time during the making of the 1984 smash hit In 3-D, it also largely shows Yankovic in his natural element, from a different perspective.--Vanyaland

Black & White & Weird All Over finds the quiet humanity and vulnerability behind all the zaniness. A fascinating, revelatory coffee table book.--Nathan Rabin, Author, Weird Al: The Book & The Weird Accordian to Al

A beautiful, personal book that will have fans flipping.--The Laugh Button

So you might ask yourself, what would a photo-documentary behind the scenes book written by a drummer be like... Actually, I seriously doubt anyone would every ask anyone, much less themselves that, but if you have, then it's your lucky day!

OK, but first, a warning to youngsters and whatnot, these pictures are in BLACK and WHITE! It's kinda hinted at in the title of the book, but I feel it's my duty, as a guy who writes irritatingly long and pointless reviews of Weird Al related books, that the pictures in this book don't have any of that modern, hoity-toity color nonsense. Just pretend someone put an 'olde tymey' app on the guys phone or something. Or learn to appreciate the artistry and simple beauty of black and white photography. If such things are possible. As has been pointed out before, this IS in fact for the "hard-core" fans of Weird Al. That picture includes a few of the other Weird Al books that are available, but probably not all of them. Oh, and it turns out Al WAS NOT in 'The Cramps' so I probably should edit that book out of the picture. As if I'm going to do that. Fun fact, kids, almost no one is lazier then a Weird Al related book reviewer, such as myself. So enjoy the pretty pictures, and marvel at a fellah who not only plays the skins well, but also takes pictures, collects memorabilia, and publishes yearbook-like books.
