If you collect records by well-known artists or mainstream recordings from the 1960s-1990s,this probably isn't the guide for you.But, if you have 78s or obscure labels or titles, this is a greataddition to your record guides. When I was collecting moreintensely a few years back, I found that I ended up using about 6 different guides,and subscribed to Goldmine magazine, a tabloid out of Iola, Wisconsin. Out of all of these guides together,I could usually find out what I wanted to know about the records I was collecting.When it came to 78s, though, this was the book that I always turned to forinformation. I didn't always agree with what I saw listed as the value ( of course, I thought my records were worth more. Just look at all the guides till you find a price you like! ) but thereis a lot of good info here. It's worth looking at just to see the record labelsin the front of the book. I found that I could search through stacks of records while hunting armed with the knowledge of what were labels to zero in on for Blues, Jazz and the like, and if I could get the recordscheaply enough, it was often worth the gamble to buy them and listen to unfamiliar artists once I got home.If you just want a price guide for mainstream music, there are better guides, like: Jerry Osborne's Official Price Guide to Records,Goldmine has good guides on 45s and records in general, and if you collect Doo-Wop try "Doo-Wop, the forgotten third of Rock 'n Roll" by Dr. Anthony J. Gribin & Dr. Matthew M. Schiff, and Warman's has guides just on Elvis and the Beatles (two separate books.
