Product Description

Product Description

You'll never listen to music the same way again! Producer, audio engineer, and author Bobby Owsinski takes you behind-the-scenes of 20 of the most beloved classic rock hits of the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. Using a technique refined after years of listening to songs under the microscope of the studio, each song analysis by Bobby describes exactly how the song was constructed and why it was a hit, examining in detail the song form, the arrangement, the sound, and the production. This is a valuable must-have for everyone who loves music, musicians learning about arrangements, producers wanting to learn how hits are constructed, audio engineers analyzing the sounds of the hits, songwriters looking inside a hit's secrets, and fans who love facts and trivia about their favorite artists. Every song analysis has numerous "listen to" moments pointing out small but significant changes in the arrangement or sound that you might not have noticed before. Plus you'll get all the song facts never found all in one place like release date, songwriters, recording studio information, number of units sold, and chart position.
