Dust & Grooves: Adventures in Record Collecting 1.3 Billion Stars

Now THIS is a coffee table book. Its packed with fantastic photography, clipped with quick quotes and comments. The pictures are the entire page, 2 pages and some tri-fold. Each picture different (style) than the next. The book covers everything vinyl. Covers, art, picture disc, color vinyl, the odd and unusual. From the collector who has them in boxes, to the elaborate display, and everything in between. The last quarter of the book interviews, and pics.

I think an interesting thing in the pictures how the collectors don't really have their listening equipment with their collections. Maybe it's because the collection is separated because of size.

Obviously this book is put together for a specific group of interest. But maybe the non-collector may find the book interesting.

I had a collection, but sold that years ago. I loved collecting, but more importantly loved the music. You'll read in the book, the various reasons people do collect. This brought back a lot of great memories.

If you like vinyl, you'll probably enjoy this book quite a bit
