It's no secret to crate diggers that Japanese record buyers really take their job seriously – and now here's a book to finally prove it! Record Buyer's Diary was put together by two Japanese record buyers as they travel the globe in search of the music they love – and it features photos, addresses, and other images from their trip – plus longer writings about their experiences in Japanese. If you don't understand the language, you might miss some of the content – but the book's still pretty darn cool in the way it offers up snippets from their trip, including photos of some great stores, maps, restaurants, and even some price tags! These guys aren't shy about sharing their secrets – and the book lists stores in Los Angeles, England, Germany, Seattle, and Vancouver. As we say, the bulk of it is in Japanese, but there's still plenty you can learn even if you don't understand the language! 215 pages, softcover, in color and black and white.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
