B-Sides gets our oontz-oontz-oontz on with Canadian DJs MSTRKRFT.

Then we check out a book about Edwardsville's legendary Mississippi River Festival.

The largely photographic account of the festival is heavy with history: a bleary-eyed James Taylor strumming his acoustic guitar, a long-haired Jimmy Buffett with a shit-eating grin, Ella Fitzgerald lost in song, fusion keyboardist Eumir Deodato gigging with the Saint Louis Symphony. Images of America: The Mississippi River Festival is a fantastic document of an underappreciated piece of St. Louis pop music's past. (For more information on the fest, including links to a couple of MRF documentaries, check riverfronttimes .com/blogs.) — Randall Roberts
