An instructive guide to opening one's mind and compiling a new kind of playlist ... succeeds brilliantly' John Clarke, Independent'Smart, provocative ... in every case informative' August Kleinzahler, The New York Times Book Review 'Like a trip into the world's coolest record store' David Browne, Rolling Stone
