Vinyl reviewed by Roy Shuker in Popular Music

The latest edition of Popular Music (34/1) has a review of Vinyl by the great popular music scholar Roy Shuker. Happily, he likes the book, saying that it ‘makes an important contribution to the now extensive body of work dealing with the development of recorded sound and its cultural implications’, and adding that ‘A wealth of detail is included, with many informative asides and extended footnotes, all in the service of a frequently insightful general account’. In conclusion he states, ‘This study of vinyl as both a recording format and a material artefact is informative, entertaining and thought provoking, showing the complexities which lie behind what are often taken for granted in musical practices and products’.
