Reviews

“A complete and colourful book that needed to be written. Hats off to Larry Jaffee who stepped up to give us the definitive history of a phenomenon that, for all its crowds and mayhem, changed the course of independent music—saving not just thousands of stores, but easily as many indie labels. When it comes to Record Store Day, the Churchillian formulation surely applies: never have so many owed so much to so few. This story stands testament to what we’ve all seen and know to be true: when counter culture gets organised in clever ways, it can turn battles that once seemed so lost.” —Gareth Murphy, author of Cowboys and Indies: The Epic History of the Record Industry
"I've spent much of my life in record shops, observing the world from both sides of the counter. Larry Jaffee's book really captures the atmosphere and importance of the independent record store, and the fresh injection of life given to the trade by Record Store Day. Indies provide a unique service; the knowledge and passion of the people who work there is matched only by the passion of their customers. As more and more of our purchases are being made online, it is essential that we do whatever we can to bolster and support the independent specialist. Record Store Day gives us an annual reminder of the importance of our local, independent experts."—Darryl W. Bullock, author of The Velvet Mafia, David Bowie Made Me Gay and Pride, Pop, and Politics
