    hey, if your book is going to be $40+tax, maybe make sure that you get a copy editor who knows the difference between 'its' and 'it's.' and figure out a way to organize -- the grouping by type, such as rock 'n' roll horror, monster movies, etc., is pretty great, but within that section, it seems like there's no real organizational process. it's not alphabetical, chronological, or otherwise, as near as i can tell. it's also not quite complete: there are cover images of recent represses to dario ar hey, if your book is going to be $40+tax, maybe make sure that you get a copy editor who knows the difference between 'its' and 'it's.' and figure out a way to organize -- the grouping by type, such as rock 'n' roll horror, monster movies, etc., is pretty great, but within that section, it seems like there's no real organizational process. it's not alphabetical, chronological, or otherwise, as near as i can tell. it's also not quite complete: there are cover images of recent represses to dario argento movie scores from waxwork records, but the represses aren't mentioned at all in the write-ups. a slug noting which version they're showing would've been a big help, a la the vhs video cover art book which was released a few years back from schiffer. it's pretty, and there are some great little interviews -- and goddamn, is that prom night 7-inch which is included cool as shit -- but for all the spot-varnish ink on the sleeve, this just seems like it could've used a little more time in the editing suite.

    I just love these vinyl soundtrack books by Aaron Lupton! This one was perfect timing for me to read in the fall and prepare for all the horror films to watch and scores to listen to! :D

    I really liked this book. It's a nice coffee table book addition to one's record collection. I learned a few things. I would have rated the book higher, but it really does have a lot of written errors. Typos abound a LOT. "George Romero" is written in one sentence, and in the following, they mention "Romeo." I actually got confused for a moment. This happens a lot in the book. The content is good, but I hope if there is a second edition, an editor will fix the numerous mistakes. I really liked this book.
