"I just received Volume 1 of Joel's Top Pop Singles, 17e. It is an absolutely beautiful book. Stunning. This book was well worth the wait, both in terms of this production, but also in the entire library of Record Research books. Congratulations to Joel, Brent, Paul, Kim and everyone at Record Research for an especially well-done volume. The color is amazing. I look forward to Volume 2 in 2022." Thomas, Superior, WI
“… just got my copy of the new book and it's magnificent! The color is definitely worth it, and all of the added detail is great to have. Pretty impressive that you got Charlie Watts's passing in there — it's only been 10 weeks. Congratulations to all of you, and bring on Volume 2!” Fred, Oakton, VA
“Received the book today and haven't put it down yet, all I can say for now is WOW! I've purchased many of Joel's books over the years but this one is by far the best, thank you Joel.” Gerald, Windsor, CT
