(I'm cross posting this on a number of lists)
I know quite a number of people were waiting for my review of the new book
on the history of Columbia Records published by Chronicle Books. Well, it’
s done and up on Amazon.com. It ‘s the first review there. A bit of
background before I give you the link:
The review is for the large book by Sean Wilentz, which I’ll call the “
Standard Edition”. I do mention the accompanying book by Dave Marsh which is
included in the “Deluxe Edition”. I was not able to obtain the USB with
the recordings in the Marsh book that is also included in the Deluxe Edition,
so I can’t judge that.
Surprisingly, the Deluxe Edition is available direct from Amazon now (for
$234..00) and it says there are only two copies left. The Standard Edition
is notAvailable from Amazon direct but there are currently about 12 copies
available on Amazon through “resellers”. The list price for the Standard
Edition is $49.00. I can't tell you what Amazon's Direct price will be ,
when it is in stock.
I contacted the publisher and they assured me that they will be supplying
copies to Amazon but it is already out of stock and they are awaiting a
reprint. Anyway, that’s all I can tell you.
