Featuring the industry standard Goldmine Grading Guide and more than 150,000 vinyl record listings and values, the Standard Catalog of American Records is the leading authority in the record collecting hobby. The mammoth reference covers albums, 45s, picture sleeves, extended play singles and 12-inch singles in virtually all genres (rock, pop, country, soul, rhythm & blues). Listings include artists, labels, formats, title, date of release, variations, errors, fakes and values. The Market Report found inside reveals what's hot and what's not in all things vinyl.
