Record Store Days: From Vinyl to Digital and Back Again
This is a fascinating, loving look back at the retail refuges that enthralled three generations of music lovers. This is by two record store veterans, one of whom is the Grammy-nominated president of Go Music, with a foreword by a member of R.E.M. "There's nothing as glamorous as a record store". (Paul McCartney). In this era of digital downloads the small, indie record shop might sound like an anachronism. But, in fact, record stores served as community centres, information exchanges, clubs and art galleries. "Record Store Days" provides a glimpse into the special alchemy that makes a great record store. This book includes photographs and reminiscences from musicians, music industry executives, former record store clerks and, of course, avid fans.
