Your Vinyl Answer

Goldmine's Essential Guide to Record Collecting celebrates some of the finest vinyl ever pressed by music's greatest artists. You'll find the royalty of Rock (Elvis, The Beatles, the Rolling Stones), the pioneers of Punk (The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Ramones), Motown's movers and shakers (Berry Gordy, Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight), Jazz kings (Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Dexter Gordon), Disco queens (Donna Summer, Diana Ross, Deniece Williams), the first couple of Folk (Joan Baez and Bob Dylan), and a host of others from Psychedelia, Classical and the Eighties.

Filled with record art, concert posters and artist profiles, as well as lists and values of the best rarities, 45s, 78s and albums from across the musical spectrum, Goldmine's Essential Guide to Record Colleting isn't the reason you'll love vinyl. But it just might be the reason your love affair will last.
