TVD Radar: Vinyl Countdown by Graham Sharpe in stores 6/1

VIA PRESS RELEASE | A revival of interest in vinyl music has taken place in recent years—but for many of those from the “baby boomer” generation who made their acquaintance with the music of their youth in this way, it never went away.

Graham Sharpe’s vinyl love affair began in the 1960s and since then he has amassed over 3,000 LPs and spent countless hours visiting record shops worldwide along with record fairs, yard sales, and online and real-life auctions. Vinyl Countdown (Trafalgar Square Publishing, June 1, 2020) follows his journey to more than 100 shops across the globe—from New York to New Zealand, Walsall to Warsaw, (old) Jersey to New Jersey—and describes the many characters he encountered and the adventures he accrued along the way.

Vinyl Countdown seeks to reawaken the often dormant desire which first promoted the gathering of records, and to confirm the belief of those who still indulge in it, that they happily belong to, and should celebrate the undervalued, misunderstood significant group of music obsessed vinylholics, who always want—need—to buy…just one more record.

A mesmerizing blend of memoir, travel, music and social history, Vinyl Countdown will appeal to anyone who vividly recalls the first LP they bought and any music fan who derives pleasure from the capacity that records have for transporting you back in time.

Graham Sharpe has been involved in the betting industry for more than 30 years and has written more than 20 books with a gambling theme. He’s collected vinyl for more than 50 years.
