Highly geeky book about some of the ultimate geeks or nerds or what have you--vinyl record collectors. These guys (women seemingly need not apply for this as the writer can only find one to write about) are on a higher level. This was enjoyable but the discussion of ultra rare blues/jazz 78s was sometimes lost on me as I have no clue who the artists were. I enjoyed the rock related people more. I did see myself in this a bit as over the years I've owned well over 5,000 vinyl, cassettes and cds...I just have gone over the edge like some people. Although in the '80s and early '90s I bought EVERY Depeche Mode release I could which includes tons of German marble 7" or limited edition 12" from Japan. I like books about subcultures and this group is definately that.
