Record Store Days Book

REMEMBRANCES OF RETAIL PAST: Just in time for Record Store Day, a week from Saturday (4/17), comes the essential Record Store Days: From Vinyl to Digital and Back Again, a wonderfully appointed coffee table book penned by Grammy-nominated music supervisor Gary Calamar and ex-Variety scribe and ace musicologist Phil Gallo. The tome includes some great memorabilia and photos, as well as conversations with some of the founders of such iconic retail stores and chains as Tower Records, Sam Goody’s, Ear X-Tacy, Rhino Records, Bleecker Bob’s, Peaches and Strawberries, with a loving  introduction by R.E.M.'s Pete Buck. The many interviews include old pals like Wherehouse’s Bob Bell, Tower’s Russ Solomon and Rhino’s Richard Foos. Do yourself a favor and check it out on Amazon here. (4/6p)
