The second revised edition of the book profiles over 130 vinyl collectors, featuring a foreword by the RZA and interviews with Questlove, Gilles Peterson, Four-Tet, the Gaslamp Killer, and more.
(This edition has 20 more pages than the first edition)
Eilon Paz's 436 page coffee-table book illuminates over 130 vinyl connoisseurs and their collections in the most intimate of environments- their record rooms. With a foreword by the RZA, compelling photographic essays are paired with in-depth interviews to illustrate what motivates record collectors to keep digging.
Readers get an up close and personal look at a variety of well-known vinyl champions as well as a glimpse into the collections of world-renowned and lesser-known DJs, producers, record dealers, and everyday enthusiasts. The book is divided into two main parts: the first features 250 full-page photos framed by captions and select quotes, while the second consists of 12 full-length interviews that delve deeper into collectors' personal histories and vinyl troves.
Unearthing the very soul of the vinyl community, his book will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers, from die-hard record enthusiasts to fans of pop culture, sharp photography, and music history.
