The Collector's Guide To Heavy Metal
VOLUME 1: THE SEVENTIES
The Collector's Guide To Heavy Metal was a 540 page mammoth of a book crammed with 3700 reviews of metal records through the decades. It elicited tons of discussion, including close to 70 reviews at the book's Amazon page and counting. Now it is being split into three volumes focusing on the '70s, '80s and '90s respectively, with hundreds of additional reviews added to the book on the '70's.
"Martin has the most thorough knowledge of heavy metal of anybody I've ever met."
"Very well researched. There are people in there I've never heard of and I'm supposed to be in the business. Good book, well thought out, well reviewed, very well researched, as I say. Anybody directed towards that kind of music would not do worse than to get a copy"
"It was refreshing to see Martin's enthusiasm for sort of the less popular Zeppelin albums. Cheery reading."
