For most people this Guide will probably be sufficient. It does pretty much cover the golden age of the 33 and a third record as well as 45's. For me however, I am very glad I never got rid of my 3rd edition. That is because the most recent 7th edition has pretty much deleted Big Band and the associated vocalists of the 50's and 60's. This is an area I have most recently homed in on. I find from 1958 - 1966 the recordings tend to sound extremely natural and warm. Perhaps it is because they where made using tube technology. There was also some very interesting early stereo mixes. It is a shame a lot of these recordings cannot be found in the 7th edition. At least I can now find some of my latter rock albums, that is a plus. It might make sense (because of the sheer volume of information) that a future catalog be divided into two volumes, either by years or categories. If you need information on big band and vocalists you will need to seek out a copy of an older edition.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mark Barry TOP 500 REVIEWER on December 8, 2011
Format: Paperback
The 5th Edition of this massive American publication came out in 2000 and at 1226 pages (A4 size) was an impressive beast. Version 6 turned up in 2008 and had expanded to a gargantuan 1392 pages and even contained a DVD attached to the back cover (both issues covered 1950 to 1975).

Here is the latest and best - the 7th Edition from 2010 with 1344 pages. More importantly, this issue has opened its parameters - giving us American releases between 1948 and 1991 for the first time - and covering many more 'genres' than its predecessors.

The layout is simple - each artist gets their 45's first - with their LPs following (both in label alphabetical order). A fantastically helpful thing is that the 78" and 7" entries have their A & B-sides listed - while the LPs feature both Mono and Stereo issues where applicable. Some important Promo issues on LP and 12" singles are featured - especially on modern day artists like Madonna where different mixes attract the attention of collectors. The album entries don't list tracks (it would be ten times the size if it did) - but they do include a year of release and a Near Mint value in dollars.

A point worth noting - the LP catalogue numbers in this reference source are not like the US Billboard Chart Books that concentrate only on the central set of numbers as a catalogue number. Bruce Springsteen's "Born To Run" is not merely 'Columbia 33795' as per Billboard - here it gets the full monty - it's PC 33795 for the 1975 original, JC 33795 for the 1977 reissue and HC 33795 for the 1981 Half-Speed Mastered version (lyrics from the song "Born To Run" title this review). This of course helps enormously when you're trying to work out what issue is what. But the range of this book doesn't just stop there...

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought the 6th edition of this price guide and contacted the publisher to say my copy was missing pages of listings. Only to find out they had been removed to add more color pictures in the center of the book. Wrong idea. So now with the 7th edition I was hopefull that all had been restored but I was wrong. So far I have found Brenda Lee and Teresa Brewer are no longer listed in this book. I am wondering how many others have been deleated. Not what I would call a complete price guide. So I still go back to the 5th edition if I want to look up missing artists.I think they should have removed the original cast recordings & Soundtracks to make room for the deleated listings since these are very incomplete anyway. Maybe the 8th edition will actually be a complete guide.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By J. A. Moriello on August 28, 2012
Format: Paperback
It was only after I had purchased this latest edition of American Records that I realized a major change had been made by the editorial staff. Many of my favorite artists had been deliberately left out, mostly 50's and 60's pop singers who had been formerly included with in-depth discographies and accurate information on each release. These great, collectable records were replaced by crap from the 80's and 90's which are for the most part, worthless. Your typical collector who can appreciate the hobby, as opposed to the business, is much older than average and has no use for newer periods when the kids bought mostly CD's anyway. I had to go back to Mr. Osborne's books which gave me more of what I wanted. It is really a shame that an excellent series of price guides has been brought down by an editor who imposed his own musical tastes over the collectors' he was supposed to be serving.

I am disappointed that there are so many established artists from the 50's & 60's, particularly in the country genre, who are not listed in this guide. Although the guide is easy to use, there are too many times when the artist I'm looking for is not included in the listings.

I found this to have a decent foundation, but to be honest the prices may be to high in this book. However, it has tens of thousands of albums and it will at least give you a good starting point when trying to sell those old albums in your closet or that you inherited.

Format: Paperback
Wow, the previous versions of Standard Catalog were great, but this is the best so far! The author added 18 years (1976-1991), so it covers a lot more territory. The listings are really detailed, so I can identify variations and tell bootlegs from authentic records. I would definitely recommend this book to any record collector!
