The Recording Industry

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 2004 - 335 pages
The Recording Industry presents a brief but comprehensive overview of how records are made, marketed, and sold. Designed for an introductory survey course, but also applicable to the amateur musician, the book opens with an overview of popular music and its place in American society, along with the key players in the recording industry: record companies; music publishers; and performance venues. In the book's second part, the making of a recording is traced from production through marketing and then retail sales. Finally, in part 3, legal issues, including copyright and problems of piracy, are addressed. - BOOK JACKET.
