Rob Friedman (Rpf99@aol.com), a record collector from New York, October 21, 1999,
Comprehensive guide to collectible 45s
Easy to read and gives vital discographies for many artists. Only limit seems to be that only artists that charted during the years covered are listed, and many more obscure but highly collectible artists are not to be found. Still, a useful book thst I consult at least 5 times a week and can cite with confidence. A monumental and excellent work!

A reviewer, December 11, 1998,
Good but could be a lot better!
The book had great color photos and a reasonable amount of
price information, but there could be quite a bit more especially
since it is not a very long book.
