Book: Tom Hamling «Celebrity Vinyl»

Celebrity Vinyl

Серия: "-"

What do Burt Reynolds, Shaquille O'Neal, Goldie Hawn and John Travolta have in common? At some point in time, they, and so many others, all decided to record horrible music albums. In "Celebrity Vinyl", Tom Hamling humorously examines what happens when famous people decide to (unsuccessfully) give singing a try. The number of celebrities that have indulged such hubris boggles the mind: Eddie Murphy, Ed McMahon, Alyssa Milano, Chevy Chase, The Dallas Cowboys. Hamling owns and thoroughly enjoys the world's biggest and best celebrity vinyl collection (more than 115 albums). Join him on this personal tour of his kooky passion as he critiques the celebrities in question, as well as the photography, typography, art direction and album copy that make each and every one of these album sleeves so curiously compelling." Celebrity Vinyl" serves as a pop-culture microscope that reveals the nuances and blemishes of vinyl and celebrity cultures from a bygone era that will make you laugh more now then you did back then.
