“What do my favorite records have in common? I suppose that they all speak to me on a particularly comforting level. They each affirm, challenge, and delight me the way a good friend should.”

THE DUST & GROOVES BOOK

ADVENTURES IN RECORD COLLECTING

Eilon Paz’s 436-page coffee-table book illuminates over 130 vinyl collectors and their collections in the most intimate of environments—their record rooms. With a foreword by the RZA, compelling photographic essays are paired with in-depth interviews to illustrate what motivates record collectors to keep digging for more records.

Readers get an up close and personal look at a variety of well-known vinyl champions as well as a glimpse into the collections of known and unknown DJs, producers, record dealers, and everyday enthusiasts. The book is divided into two main parts: the first features 250 full-page photos framed by captions and select quotes, while the second consists of 12 full-length interviews that delve deeper into collectors’ personal histories and vinyl troves.

Second updated edition Includes a full new interview with Questlove.
