Shopping for dad isn’t always easy, especially if you’ve yet to pin down his interests. It’s a time to get something of real value, be a little more thoughtful – as much as a reflection of his personality as it is a welcome addition to his wardrobe, bookshelf or workout routine. And getting the right gift obviously changes based on what your dad likes. Do you need the perfect music gift? Perhaps you’re after something techy? Or is your dad more fashionable than you?

Well, writers André Darlington and Tenaya Darlington’s 224-page book Booze & Vinyl attempts to set the mood for over 70 albums from the ’50s to the 2000s with the right libation, from The Beatles’ Sgt.
