It has been updated since my time and it is still as fresh and 'edutaining' as I remember.
Getting invovled with the industry as artist or otherwise, then get this.
Passman's book is that guide. It explains everything you need to know in easy-to-understand English in an often humorous tone. Clearly unravelling often complex concepts, Passman takes a step-by-step approach through every aspect of the music business covering everything from royalties (How much will I get paid?) to rights (Who owns the recording?) in a manner that leaves no room for doubt.
Buy this book, it will help you make sense of one of the most jargon-filled industries in the world, you'll enjoy reading it and you'll find yourself returning to it again and again.
An Essential Guide for serious singers and Musicians is real as it does not promise you fortune and fame but tells you that only hard working and getting your name out there with good marketing strategies works.
you approach the business. It caters for both U.S. and U.K. citizens so nothings mixed up and the invaluable advice given by
donald passman isn't wrapped up in complex jargon.
