RECORDED: Live in Hamburgs Plattenläden - von Nicolas Christitch (Autor), Katrin Vierkant (Fotograf). Durch die Einführung des Musik-Downloads geriet der Musikmarkt Mitte der Nullerjahre in eine schwere Krise. Die digitale Umstrukturierung des Marktes und die Etablierung neuer Plattformen der Musikverbreitung zwangen viele Schallplattenläden zur Schließung und brachten eine ganze Kultur aus Labels, Vertrieben und speziellen Artworks in Bedrängnis – auch in Hamburg. Trotzdem gibt es in Deutschlands Musikhauptstadt noch immer erstaunlich viele Plattenläden. Und noch immer ist die Szene sehr aktiv, hochspezialisiert und sorgt mit ihren unabhängigen Strukturen für kreative Vielfalt jenseits des musikindustriellen Mainstreams. Dieses Buch vereint 41 Porträts aus den 26 unabhängigen Plattenläden der Stadt und zeigt die Menschen, die hinter diesen Läden stehen. In Interviews berichten sie von ihren ersten Kontakten mit Musik, mit Schallplatten und Plattenläden, davon, welche Rolle Hamburg dabei spielte, und ihren Erfahrungen in einem vollständig veränderten Tonträgermarkt. Ergänzt werden die Darstellungen durch von den Läden selbst gestaltete Plattencover und die persönlichen Bestenlisten der Ladenbesitzer: das ultimative Best of von 625 Platten aus Hamburgs Musikläden samt Coverabbildung und Kurzkommentar. Reinblättern kann man hier Gebundenes Buch 29.90
