About the Book

A Rough Trade Book of the Year

After the success of his memoir, Telling Stories, Tim set himself a quest. He got in touch with people he admires, and asked them to suggest an album for him to track down on his travels, giving an insight into what makes them tick, while also giving Tim a chance to see how record shops around the world were faring in the digital age. Sending out texts, phone calls, emails and handwritten notes to the likes of Iggy Pop, Johnny Marr, David Lynch and Cosey Fanni Tutti, here is the tender, funny and surprising story of what came back.

“A fantastic book -- required reading if you’ve ever lifted a twelve-inch square of plastic from a dusty rack with a smile that could be seen from space.”
- Loud and Quiet
“Burgess’s skills as a raconteur bring to life the story, search, collectors and shops . . . If you have displayed any of the same vinyl-addiction symptoms as Burgess, this is a one-sitting read.”
- David Hutcheon, MOJO
