Spinning the Record

cover

This is a book I wrote (well, finished…writing it took me nearly two years) in 2006 tracing the history of the recording industry from its infancy to the age of digital streaming and downloads. In retrospect (the Internet wasn’t quite as complete as it is now) I may have missed a merger or two, but everything in this book is correct, accurate, and as it happened. I’m neither happy nor proud to say that I accurately predicted, 13 years ago, the demise of physical music carriers and the craze of downloads and streaming as the sole means of acquiring a music collection, but accurate I was.

The book is lavishly illustrated with period newspaper and magazine ads, antique record labels and, later on, album covers, which I think make it an attractive read. Please enjoy and, if you like it, let me know by emailing me at artmusiclady (at) outlook.com.

Thank you for your interest and support!
