    I received a digital copy of this book for review from the publisher Duke University Press via Netgalley As John Corbett himself points out, the death of vinyl has been greatly exaggerated Far from being killed off by the digital format, vinyl sales are now at a 25 year high, ushering in a revitalised reissue market and a new generation of collectors With it has emerged a fresh economy in vinyl related merchandise, a new generation of affordable record players, storage solutions and books on the [...]

    And I thought I was a music freak.John Corbett s Vinyl Freak Love Letters to a Dying Medium is a collection of columns that Corbett wrote in the early 2000 s about his vinyl collection and some of the strange records he had found over the years Corbett also relates his history with records and some personal experiences he s had with them.This book was both incredibly rewarding and incredibly difficult Most of the book is full of Corbett s columns and his thoughts on various rare records Most of [...]

    Perhaps it s due to my mood at the moment, but Vinyl Freak is the best book I have read on record collecting, or to be specific, for the love of vinyl and music discovery First of all, I read this book due to my friend Amber No , who suggested to me at a bookstore She doesn t at the moment share my love for the vinyl world, but still, it was sweet of her to find this book for me Second, I may only know eight albums here that the author John Corbett writes about All, are obscure Jazz or experime [...]

    Just kidding I didn t read this crap.

    While I give this book 5 stars without reservation, it is not for everyone Corbett has a vast and encyclopedic knowledge of jazz, particularly free, improvisational, and downright freaky jazz This book compiles several years of columns he wrote for Down Beat magazine regarding out of print LP s that merited being reissued in some form, preferably vinyl Appended to this compilation of columns is his story of how he acquired a storage unit worth of Sun Ra ephemera that would have otherwise ended u [...]

    A treat for anyone who is or has been a record collector, and fans of mostly obscure jazz Look for my review at AllAboutJazz.

    This is a collection of columns that jazz scholar and label owner John Corbett wrote for Downbeat Magazine from 2000 2012, about rare vinyl records in his collection complete with color thumbnails of the albums in question There is a short introductory section where he details his formative years as a teenager catching the vinyl bug and his years as a college radio DJ The columns are presented in chronological order with Corbett adding a postscript about whether the album in question had been re [...]

    Honestly, I don t like jazz much, and 95% of this falls under that heading, but I ve been a record collector all my life, so there was still a lot of common ground.I picked this book up because I love album art and it has color reproductions of some of the craziest album art I ve never seen I hadn t even planned to read it, though once I started the writing was good enough that I ended up reading it cover to cover I especially enjoyed the end section where the author tells the story of how he en [...]

    I have only heard of a few of these musicians but still found this a highly compelling read just for his light touch, humor and passion for collecting vinyl It also pulled back the curtain on all the different ways music was recorded and distributed The structure could have been better explained but a minor quibble.

    Perfect Xmas present or any time of the year present for the vinyl freak in your life and maybe that s you well bonus Amazing archive of rare jazz record reviews passionately detailed.
