I've just finished reading parts of a new book from Scarecrow Press titled
"Contemporary Collecting: Objects, Practices and the Fate of Things", which

One of them covers four reissue lables including ARSC members Lance and
April Ledbetter and their Dust to Digital label. I'm not thrilled with the
book as it is a bit too esoteric and looks at record collecting as cultural
anthropology, but I thought I'd mention it.

of vinyl collectors in their collections and I went there. Otside of Joe
Bussard (who really is more of a 78 collector than vinyl) I didn't recognize
anyone else. I wondered why out illustrious member Mike Biel isn't
featured with HIS collection! Anyway, some of these folks could possible
candidates for ARSC Membership.
Have a look. Here is the site:
