    Yeah, this is probably the most on-brand coffee-table tome I could possibly buy. The selections are totally scattershot; some are a bit obvious (the omnipresent Led Zeppelin IV, when if you’re going to pick a Zeppelin album for drinking it really should be In Through the Out Door), some a bit questionable (albums about street riots and Vietnam don’t really belong in the “seduction” section, imo), and others are so on point you can’t help but smirk (Bruce and boilermakers? But of course). All in Yeah, this is probably the most on-brand coffee-table tome I could possibly buy.

But of course). All in all, though, a great gift for your favorite cratedigging boozehound—or, you know, just for you. Personally I’m eager to try the red wine hot chocolate with Dark Side of the Moon.

    Very much a concept book that will no doubt make you smile. Safe and obvious choices with regard to the pairings of music and drinks. Definitely needed more shots of turntables. A coffee table book worth a look.

    Ladies and gents, music maniacs and booze buffs— this book is IT! It pairs popular records from the 70s to now with delightful cocktails and even food! Seriously, what more do you need?? It’s a wonderful way to learn about some of the best musicians of the last few decades. And the drinks are On. Point. I’ve read through the whole thing and tried four of the pairings now with friends and solo, and it’s been a true enjoyment— every time.

    4.5 stars. This was on a year-end list of cookbooks. Recipe books? You don't cook cocktails, of course, but aside from that the focus is the vinyl. What an innovative concept for a book. Those liner notes and party ideas (with great matching photos and layouts) show a lot of love and passionate knowledge of the music. Makes me want to at least listen to a lot of albums I missed the first time around, even if I can't get my hands on the vinyl. There is an "A side" and "B side" cocktail recipe for 4.5 stars.

Makes me want to at least listen to a lot of albums I missed the first time around, even if I can't get my hands on the vinyl. There is an "A side" and "B side" cocktail recipe for each album, some of which seem to have been culled from historic recipes based on the way the name/title fits with each album theme. I don't feel the need to make a lot of those recipes (or host most of those parties), but it sure was fun to read about. Do you want to know the first album listed in the first section (Rock)? Sticky Fingers by The Rolling Stones. The authors say it is their "go-to New Years Day brunch album." As I was reading this at the beginning of January, fun! (There are parties for all seasons and reasons represented in the book.)

    This is my favorite bar book. It includes many cocktails you’d want to drink with readily available ingredients, and the photography and page layouts are ultra sexy cool. The index is pretty thorough when you’re looking for a recipe that includes those random bottles of liqueurs you’ve acquired in your cabinet.

    Si solo fuera por los cocktails, estaría más o menos el libro, pero como de lo que trata es de mezclar tragos con discos sube muchos puntos aunado esto a una edición y diseño increíble. Un libro muy bonito para acompañar tu colección de libros de bar o tu colección de discos. No es escencial, pero se ve muy bien.

    Little essays on classic albums and suggested drinks and appetizers. The text reads like something that was very inspirational a few drinks into conceptualizing and then had to be expanded to have enough material for a book. A fun idea for cocktails with friends, but not enough true inspiration for a good theme-book.

    Very cool, beautiful book with awesome craft cocktail pairings with classic vinyl albums. I have 10-15 of these albums, so I’m looking forward to making the drinks and trying them out
