For serious music lovers who want the most qualitatively out of their records and phonographs, here's the book to own. E.T. Canby in ""The Record from Studio to Store"" traces the historical background, the problems of recording, of multiple reproduction, of acoustics. His evaluation of various kinds of records will be appreciated by all who want to understand what to expect from different types....Burke discusses the phonograph in detail, what the listener can expect from machine combinations, the best that can be had in distinct price groups....Kolodin helps the listener to hear with greater acumen and appreciation by analyzing several recordings of a single work- and by listing recommended recordings. This is for people who want the recording- rather than a recording -- and who insist on the best sound reproducer they can afford.
