The definitive history of the music industry
A fascinating account of the way recorded music has evolved, touched people and helped shape popular culture as we know it today.
If this book was a group, I would definitely sign them. It is that good.
A fascinating trawl through music industry history ... thoroughly researched
An all encompassing history of not only what might be termed the hardware of popular music from Thomas Edison's cylinders to the MP3 downloads of today, but the machinations, artistic high jinks and public scams that accompanied it
Compendious and tantalising ... The research is solid ... His original interviews - with Elektra's Jac Holzman, Def Jam/American impresario and super-producer Rick Rubin, Sire boss Seymour Stein, and Virgin's Simon Draper among many - are candid and insightful.
