About this item

Tim Book Two: Vinyl Adventures from Istanbul To San Francisco follows a road trip undertaken by Tim Burgess tracking down records recommended by the likes of Ian Rankin, Iggy Pop and Kim Gordon- it's a celebration of vinyl and those that collect it as well as those that sell it.

The compilation, ‘Vinyl Adventures from Istanbul to San Francisco’, is recommendations of the great and the good in life from The Clash chosen by one of The Vaccines to Willie Nelson picked by one of The Clash. No rules. Love sit comfortably beside Joy Division, Isao Tomita next to Duane Eddy. And it’s unlikely you’ll find an album with music by Fad Gadget, Tchaikovsky and Allen Ginsberg.


Andy says: This is the compilation album which accompanies Tim's wonderful book about, well, me, you, him, us, ALL OF US music obsessives who have, ever since we can remember, gravitated to independent record shops, rubbing shoulders with kindred spirits on that never ending search for our next musical hit. This album features songs chosen by Tim's friends who feature in the book. As such it is beautiful, bonkers, unique and varied. You really should get the book AND this record. Friends in music!
