Dear Yuri,
I have received the book - thank you very much! Following are my comments - use them as you see fit.
Very best wishes,
Pete Grendysa

More than a discography, more than a record dating guide, Yuri Grishin's second volume in his "Famous British Collectable Record Labels"series, spotlighting the Harvest Label, continues the very high standards set by his Island Records book.
In these pages you will find a dazzling array of hundreds of photos of labels, record sleeves, artists, studios, and designers. Beyond the illustrations is a complete history of Harvest and associated labels such as Regal Zonophone, Parlophone, and Sovereign.
Complete information on all issues, reissues, and special pressings is provided, along with a price guide.
No matter which of these records you have in your collection or are seeking, you will learn much more about them. Grishin is the leader in the field of discography, and there is more to come.

With all my best wishes.

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.

Hi Yuri,
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,
Richard (Esprit House, www.eil.com )

I do admire your titanic efforts that you've put into gathering all those fragments of information and arranging such huge volumes of data!!!
I have first-hand knowledge of how it's hard sometimes to identify a record! I remember I've spent so many sleepless nights trying to do that! When your book appeared in stores all my questions and problems found their answers in it! So i can value your precious work only using superlative degree!
Thank you ever so much! It is perfect, magnificent!

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.

'Island Records 1962 - 1977' or 'Harvest Label 1969 - 1980': I've missed such books since round about 30 years. Now the dream is true. Thank you, Yuri - and of course all the other people, who had helped!

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!
