"Spitz’s photos showcase the people and products that give each [record store] their distinct personality. He shot exclusively with film, an aesthetic that mirrored the sonic quality of analog music." Slate
About the Author
Spitz’s photographs have been seen at the F9 Gallery in Los Angeles, Artists Haven Gallery in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Amsterdam Whitney Gallery in New York City, and the Infusion Gallery in Los Angeles. His most recent exhibitions include the Julia Dean Photo Center Gallery in Los Angeles, the 2012 International Juried Show at the North Valley Art League in Redding, California, the Los Angeles Brewery Spring Art Walk, and the ADC Contemporary Art Gallery at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, CA.
When he’s not out collecting records, Spitz has an MSW in social work and a full-time career as a licensed clinical therapist working with behaviorally and emotionally challenged children. He also has taught photography to troubled teenagers, using it as a therapeutic means for self-expression and creativity. Mike became a first-time father in March of 2014. He lives in Silver Lake with his girlfriend and son Max.
Rebecca Villaneda is a Los Angeles-born writer educated in southern and northern California. She now lives in Santa Barbara. She is the youngest of four children, all first-generation Americans. She received her bachelor’s degree in journalism at San Jose State University, and became a writer to raise awareness of social and environmental issues, and because her mother’s passion for the written word was contagious.
She was a staff writer for the national online magazine, HispanicBusiness.com, where politicians and international entrepreneurs were her subject matters. These personality types, coupled with musicians, philanthropists, and scientist, have given Rebecca a strong versatile foundation in the art of interviewing. Her first book, a collection of autobiographical short stories titled Stories 4 Women, was a collaboration with three other writers released in November 2010.
The Record Store Book is a dream project for her; she is passionate about music and everything and everyone it touches.

This is definitely a great gift for my musician friends. I'll be getting more copies for sure.
Updated the replacement also fell apart within weeks of receiving it. Although I love the stories and photos I can't recommend a book that so easily falls apart.
