Rave review from Record Collector for XTC Bumper Book

Another lovely review for The XTC Bumper Book of Fun, this time from Record Collector. Ignore the typo that credits Chris Difford as the author (great songwriter though he may be) and read those lovely words from Jamie Atkins.

“Dotted throughout those original pages and some relaxed, genuinely insightful interviews; Partridge in particular is on outspoken form throughout. Fans new and old will pore over this.”
