I have this book in print, the edition titled 1950-1975, edited by Tim Neely.
I've checked the one right here searching for Jimmy Velvet and no results. Not to mention that the Google programmers can't grasp the concept of quotes around a phrase. Also no result for Al Caiola. So it appears that it is not as complete for collectors.
It also looks like over the years the corrupt practices of sellers overgrading records has now been accepted by Goldmine. They used to give the values for Good, VG, and Mint. Now they call Good "Very Good". It's corrupt deception.
The definitive guide to all things vinyl. Well, that is all dealers and collectors consider this the "bible" of collecting records.
