It’s a fascinating book. Well worth seeking out if you can find it at a fair price.

Rob was so meticulous with his notes ... and that’s a side of him that wasn’t really appreciated or known before. Either way, makes for great reading

It is a great book.  Recommended.

Incidentally, I'd been hunting around for ages for one of these and then went into 'Vinyl Exchange' in Manchester a couple of years ago and they had a number of them that they were selling (presumably directly from the distributer, rather than second-hand items, which they usually deal in).

If anyone is still looking for them, it might be worth giving them a ring.  The book isn't listed on their website but, as I said, they just had a pile of them they were offloading; they might not have put them on their site.

I can't promise that they still have any but it may be worth a try.

I was about to post something similar when I read this. I too saw a display of these books on the Vinyl Exchange counter around the time of release and for some reason didn't get one. Probably cos I'd already bought a load of other stuff, but looking back I could have left all that in the racks and just bought this book instead! From memory they were £30. I think they fetch £40-80 ish on eBay. This one however, well its a bit of a cheeky starting price really. No wonder nobody has bid yet.

@dmxi thanks for the link though, its nice to get a sneaky look at it.
