Morgan 'Moman' Nixon is a DJ and a curator of something called The Long Road Society, based in Oakland, California, which seeks to make "soulful music and build community in Oakland". This book is the result of his long journey as a DJ negotiating the precarious hills and gullies of collecting reggae, especially Studio One. In this book he attempts to guide the listener / collector through the various pressings of his choice of Studio One classics, based on his own purchases through the years, homing in on the best press of around a 180 titles for DJ purposes. As he says, his book "Aims to help people navigate the mind-numbing record pressing maze of the legendary Studio One label". It's a fun read, with pretty illustrations for each entry, and Morgan's brief essays reflect the humour and resignation one must cling to when commencing upon this long road. As he points out more than once, many of these records are to be obtained on any press, just to have them, but he hopes his guide will be of use if one decides to upgrade.
