A Hudson Booksellers Best Non-Fiction Book of the Year, with forewordA by Wilco's Jeff TweedyHigh FidelityA meetsA Killing Yourself to LiveA when one man searches for his lost record collection.As he finds himself within spitting distance of middle-age, journalist Eric Spitznagel feels acutely the loss of... something. Freedom? Maybe. Coolness? Could be. The records he sold in a financial pinch? Definitely. To find out for sure, he sets out on a quest to findA the original vinyl artifacts from his past. Not just copies. The exact same records: TheA BonA JoviA record with his first girlfriend's phone number scrawled on the front sleeve. TheA KISS Alive IIA he once shared with his little brother. The ReplacementsA Let It BeA hes pretty sure, 20 years later, would still smell like weed. As he embarks on his hero's journey, he reminisces about the actual records, the music, and the people he listened to it withaold girlfriends, his high school pals, and, most poignantly, his father and his young son. He explores the magic of music and memory as he interweaves his adventures in record-culture with questions about our connection to our past, the possibility of ever recapturing it, and whether we would want to if we could."Memories are far more indelible when married to the physical world, and Spitznagel proves the point in this vivid book. We love vinyl records because they combine the tactile, the visual, the seeable effects of age and care and carelessness. When he searches for the records he lost and sold,A Spitznagel isA trying to return to a tangible past, and he details that process with great sensitivity and impact."aDave Eggers, New York Times bestselling author ofA The Circle
