Vinyl Junkies: Adventures in Record Collecting



by Brett Milano

Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Pub. Date: November 2003
ISBN-13: 9780312304270
Sales Rank: 161,615
240pp
Edition Number: Revised

Synopsis

Not too far away from the flea markets, dusty attics, cluttered used record stores and Ebay is the world of the vinyl junkies. Brett Milano dives deep into the piles of old vinyl to uncover the subculture of record collecting. A vinyl junkie is not the person who has a few old 45s shoved in the cuboard from their days in high school. Vinyl Junkies are the people who will travel over 3,000 miles to hear a rare b-side by a German band that has only recorded two songs since 1962, vinyl junkies are the people who own every copy of every record produced by the favorite artist from every pressing and printing in existance, vinyl junkies are the people who may just love that black plastic more than anything else in their lives. Brett Milano traveled the U.S. seeking out the most die-hard and fanatical collectors to capture all that it means to be a vinyl junkie. Includes interviews with Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, Peter Buck from R.E.M and Robert Crumb, creator of Fritz the cat and many more underground comics.

Library Journal

/> All subcultures claim to be misunderstood, and all subcultures have their rites of entrance that separate dabblers from doers. To be a true record collector, explains Milano, a Boston-based music journalist, it takes more than a Velvet Underground album and some volumes from the Nuggets compilations. "Love for the music, love for the artifact, the thrill of the chase" or a heroin Jones-like drive makes collectors accumulate thousands of little-known records and sometimes use bill money for the next score. High-profile vinyl junkies like Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and underground comic guru Robert Crumb explain their obsession with the obscure. For some, like R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, a collection began with a crush on the record store clerk. Though Milano keeps the prose energetic through chapters on the psychiatric justification for hi-fi hoarding and on the world's truly bizarre records, those who busted open their Franklin Mint coin sets long ago to play some pinball may lose interest. Recommended for all libraries and other places using CDs for coasters.-Eric Hahn, West Des Moines, IA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Biography

Brett Milano is a longtime Boston-based music journalist who once interviewed Joey Ramone and Barry Manilow on the same day. He compiled and annotated the Boston punk history CD Mass. Ave: The Boston Scene (on Rhino); and has written liner notes for albums by Todd Rundgren, the Cars, and the Smithereens. He has written for Billboard, Pulse and the College Media Journal; and can now be read weekly in the Boston Herald and the Boston Phoenix. Aside from a short-lived Boston Rock Trivia volume that still turns up on Ebay to this day, Vinyl Junkies is his first book.

Revolutionizing Children's Records: The Young People's Records and Children's Record Guild Series, 1946-1977



by David Bonner

Publisher: Government Institutes
Pub. Date: December 2007
ISBN-13: 9780810859197
Sales Rank: 154,210
345pp
Series: American Folk Music and Folk Musicians Ser.

Synopsis

Young People's Records and Children's Record Guild were the first commercially significant record clubs in the world. By applying proven book club methods to the field of phonograph records, these two related companies attracted some hundred thousand subscribers at their peak and serviced perhaps a million members in their existence. Revolutionizing Children's Records: The Young People's Records and Children's Record Guild Series, 1946-1977 tells the history of YPR/CRG, explaining how these two labels intersected important developments in the histories of mass marketing, recording technology, educational philosophy, folk music, contemporary composition, and Cold War politics. David Bonner covers in detail the history of YPR/CRG, tracing its influences back to the beginnings of music education in the nineteenth century and incorporating the impact of the American folk music revival on music educators.

The narrative follows the career paths of the company principals, such as its progressive founder Horace Grenell; the musicians who recorded for him, like American folk music revival pioneer Tom Glazer; and the record industry offshoots they created in the process. Bonner considers advances the clubs made in recording technology as the first record labels devoted exclusively to "unbreakable" vinyl discs and provides a comprehensive summary of record club marketing, including the application of "music appreciation" to phonograph records. He also charts the commercial, critical, and political response to these endeavors, including a historical footnote to the "Red Scare" unavailable in existing Cold War literature. A complete and detailed discography listing every YPR and CRG recording,including all known writers and performers, concludes this excellent reference for scholars, nostalgists, and phonographic fanatics.

Vernon's Vault Of Vintage Vinyl



by Elizabeth Fuhrman Bragg

Publisher: VDM Verlag Dr. Mueller e.K.
Pub. Date: June 2008
ISBN-13: 9783639025453
Sales Rank: 308,621
120pp

Synopsis

The International Bluegrass Music Museum, Owensboro, KY, has a large vinyl album collection which is difficult to share with their world-wide community. While having a revolving exhibit of album covers can provide a way to share the album's art with visitors; they are still unable to share the music without possibly damaging them and it does not enable the Museum to reach its world-wide audience of bluegrass fans. My solution to this problem has two steps: create a computer database system with the information from each of these albums and to digitize the albums. The album information would be integrated with the digital sound recordings to provide a compre-hensive database of the Museum's album collection. I focus on the first step of this solution, the steps taken to record all of the infor-mation from a portion of the Museum's Vernon collection. I also exa-mine bluegrass music as a genre, its history and origins, and discuss how bluegrass music fits into society today and why it is important to preserve this vital musical genre. This book will be useful to Museum staff who are interested in using new technology to reach a wider audience and to bluegrass fans around the world.
