“The joy of listening far exceeds my need to have it on record. The song is the cake, the original vinyl record is the cherry on top.”

Sheila Burgel

 

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.
