I have bought this book three times. First, I purchased it when it had a fairly plain black cover. I leafed through it hundreds of times, feasting my eyes on the many superb album sleeves included within.Entranced by many of the classic - and less well-known -LPs of the 1960s and 1970s featured within, I ended up buying many of them unheard on CD, just for the cover art. In some cases I tracked down the vinyl. Sometimes, I loved the music contained within each respective album, sometimes I hated it. Sometimes, the reproduction of the original cover art was poorly done for the CD issues, so sighing, I picked up a scissor and did what I have never otherweise done: cut out the reproduction of the original sleeve in the book and slotted it into the jewel case of the CD. I should mention here that most of the reproductions here re exactly the same size as CD inserts...

Of course, this meant that I needed another copy, so I bought another about five years ago, a paperback with a magenta title stripe at the top and a matching spine. This has remained pristine. But as it's quite a thick book, it's difficult to open without at least rippling the spine and, despite my admission of cutting up one copy, I'm normally a condition-obsessed book collector with decades of experience collecting modern firsts.

Then recently the lovely people at Taschen answered my prayers and reissued the book in hardcover, bound in white boards with its best jacket design yet. When I can afford to move to a bigger house and reorganise my music collection into one room where it will sit immacculate while I blast out my vinyl and CDs, this copy will sit with my box sets, blu ray audios and other aural oddities. As far as I'm concerned, it's arguably the Bible of the golden age of rock music.

A pretty useless effort. No information about the covers, the artists involved, history, background or even the bands. What a waste..0/10 for effort.
