(Book). An in-depth and comprehensive guide to and history of music collecting, The Ultimate Guide to Vinyl and More traces the hobby from its beginnings over a century ago. The book features informative and entertaining sections on every significant format in which recorded music has been released and some that are now almost completely forgotten. Based on Dave Thompson's original Backbeat classic, The Music Lover's Guide to Record Collecting , this revamped, colorful, expanded edition takes readers from the early days of cylinders, 78s, and Edison records on through 45s, LPs, 8-tracks, cassettes, bootlegs, CDs, MiniDiscs, MP3s, LPs, and other formats. Landmark labels, collectable artists, specialist themes, and more are explored across a series of essays, while dozens of color images bring the most obscure corners of the hobby to life. Unlike other volumes that focus exclusively on vinyl, this book caters to the audiophile whose obsession for music welcomes all formats. Through it all, the joy and fascination of music collecting in all its guises comes alive.
