A Life in Thirty-Five Boxes by former Hacienda DJ Dave Haslam explores our impulse to collect, our emotional attachment to vinyl, and the notion that every record collection reflects our life story, our “passions and our pleasures. Our moments of rapture, and our moments of regret”.

Haslam meets several exceptional enthusiasts with fascinating vinyl collections, and tracks how his own collection built, the pleasure and perils of record shops, and his decades of record-buying - up to the cathartic moment he decides to sell all his vinyl to DJ Seth Troxler and waves goodbye to thirty-five boxes of records as they're loaded into the back of a van.
