Fantastic book......the only bad thing about it, is that it makes me realise how many pic sleeves I HAVEN'T got!!!

Nice...very enjoyable to look through, especially for someone like me who missed out on collecting the singles the first time around.

It combines two of my favorite things-Beach Boys and vinyl. I love color photo books and though I wish the pics were a little larger, this is just a wonderful presentation.

Totally agree, although the English translation is a drag. Many more PS 45s have surfaced in the meantime. Unfortunately the book sold quite poorly, so there won't be a second edition, which is a shame. Great job, Manfred and Christian.

They needed to make it easier to buy. It took me over a year to find the right place to buy it. Still it is great. The translation wasn't the best but the info was very good.

I love this book. Bought it for the regular price at the time (on http://www.vinylcover.net/#1), but it was well worth it. Just got a second copy from my father who thought he'd finally found something I definitely would not have in my collection....  Grin   He'll never learn...
But this gives me the chance to use one of them not only as a reference guide, but also for notes/remarks, etc.

Again, I love this book. Essential for anyone's collection.

Rule of thumb, think BEFORE you post. And THINK how it may affect someone else's feelings.

Check out the Beach Boys Starline website, the place for pictures of many countries Beach Boys releases on 45.

Listening to you I get the music; Gazing at you I get the heat; Following you I climb the mountain; I get excitement at your feet
Right behind you I see the millions; On you I see the glory; From you I get opinions; From you I get the story

In case anyone wants to buy this, I just saw a copy on Ebay, and the price is decent:

A beautiful representation of many Beach Boys singles/EPs and picture sleeves from around the world, which transformed me from being a casual to a serious 45/EP collector. Although “The Beach Boys on 45” website is far more extensive, the book is still a great companion piece as it contains singles and EPs from countries which have not yet been added to the website Grin
