    It's a good one!
    Found mine at 1/2 Price Books.
    Really enjoyed reading about what other record collectors get off on.

    As previously posted, I finally pulled the trigger on this one. This title is pricey even for paperbacks, but this copy is in very good shape and the price was not out-a-sight;

    The Last Balladeer - The Johnny Hartman Story by Gregg Akermann

    I just started Crate Digger, but so far so good. It's written album by album.

    Old Records Never Die was amazing. One of those "I can't put it down" books. I can't imagine trying to track down the very copy of something I've sold in the past.

    This one was written kind of awkwardly, but the stories are great. If your into early punk and post-punk. You'll love it.

    A good follow up to the previous post?

    Shrill demented sparrows bark,
    The sun into being. They rule
    dawn's Kingdom. The cars-
    a rising chorus- Then
    workmen's songs & hammers
    The children of the schoolyard,
    a hundred high voices,
    complete the orchestration
