Vinyl Records and Analog Culture in the Digital Age: Pressing Matters looks at music technologies from a popular culture studies perspective, taking into consideration the ways in which human beings bring these technologies into their lives and the discursive practices they create. Focusing on the resurgence of vinyl records, this book examines the ways in which interacting with analog technologies creates and shapes listening subjectivity in its users.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Not just the die-hard fans and collectors of vinyl recordings will be interested in this new book by Paul E. Winters. . . .Here we have a good study on many characteristics of not just vinyl collecting but on the nature, 'aura,' authenticity and meaning of this important intellectual and artistic product; which, nevertheless, remains a product that, according to the very nature and purpose of the music industry, needs to be promoted and sold to generate revenue. . . .Very informative and not too academic in nature, this text will appeal to vinyl collectors and researchers of popular culture and consumer culture as well. * Popcultureshelf.com *
Winters takes the reader on a fascinating journey from the days of shellac to the current renaissance of vinyl. Along the way he weaves through issues concerning authenticity, simulacrum, production, consumption, collecting practices, and listening perceptions, giving space to theorists and music fans. It is a masterful study written with verve and lucidity. -- Thomas M. Kitts, professor of English, St. John's University
