There haven’t been many posts about music on this blog yet. The one linked below connects to literature and music via autobiography. Fans of Nick Hornby’s book (and film) High Fidelity will probably enjoy this book. I know I will. 

Also, since we’re on the subject of record collecting and retracing one’s past, I figure that now’s the time to share a quip from Luke, the owner of Bullseye Records, of Milwaukee, WI:

“I wish I had my old records…just so I could sell them back again.”

His ensuing laugh filled the room. 

Enjoy!

Motivated by seller’s regret and nostalgia, a journalist goes in search of the vinyl of his youth. And not just copies of albums he loved—he wants the exact records he owned and sold.
