Your volume on the Island label is already on my bookshelf and I must
say that you did a great job. Your research is extremely thorough and
every serious collector of classic British records should have his/her
very own copy. I am very keen on the other volumes you are planning.
I liked the new book as much as the last although it was a little different.
I liked the way it took Harvest in detail but then expanded over much of the EMI catalogue too - the Parlophone & Columbia sections being particularly useful.
Even when you deal with as many old LPs as we do, we rarely get the chance to compare several issues of the same album to each other at the same time. Your book gives us the chance to do that and know exactly which label/sleeve variation we are dealing with & therefore how to describe it correctly for our customers.
I think this will end up being a series that you can be truly proud of - I appreciate your hard work compiling them.
All the best,

I do admire your titanic efforts that you've put into gathering
all those fragments of information and arranging such huge volumes of
I like the book very much because it is so substantial. You have all
covers (front and back!) and all the labels with all the details shown.
Marvellous if you want to check the record you have or you want to buy.
Great work, Yuri!!! Keep going on!

This is really fantastic result of your job ,laborious and detailed- it's hard to imagine ,how much time required to make that.I guess , so versalite information could be interesting not only for serious record collectors and vinyl traders, but for all music lovers who still is "sitting on black circles" and sound engineers , who don't forget yet about best sound works of the past. Thanks twice and get luck with future books!
