Have always been fascinated by record label businesses, and this book answered a lot of questions i had floating around in my mind. If you're interested in the record business in any shape or form, this is probably the best place to start (read as much material as you can; educate yourself).

2.0 out of 5 stars Short on Content, Poorly Formatted, Geared Towards Being a "Millionaire" and Radio Play/CDs 7 May 2015
By Jeff F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm really confused by the great rating on this book.

To begin, it is really short on content. I read it in about 30 minutes, cover to cover, and I didn't learn anything that would fall outside of common sense. The only topic that seemed like it might be useful was was distribution, but the chapter essentially said, "If you want to get a distributor, it's hard but you can get one if you try and they'll distribute your CDs into stores for you."

The formatting in the book is all messed up. Sentences fall into the margins, headers and bolding isn't consistent, the book has no end label. This book looks like it was independently made and no one checked it before it went to the printer. There were also a few typos.

Probably my largest gripe is that this book is geared towards being a multi-millionaire record label CEO that specializes in Top 40, Country, rock, or rap (i.e., genres that make a lot of money). At least that's the impression I got. I guess that could be your dream, sure, but if you're looking into being an independent record label which operates primarily on the internet and sells a small stock, running around and trying to get your local radio station to play your indie jams isn't going to work; they're just too big and too "pop" focused. For example, this book talks about "going platinum". Please, that's like if a book on getting a job in the sports industry said, "play in the NFL" it's just not realistic. There are plenty of successful labels that don't have platinum releases.

Also, this book focuses on CD sales. I haven't bought a CD in... 10 years? People buy digital music and they buy vinyl. This book was written in 2014 and could have addressed either but instead CDs are mentioned on almost every page. Maybe if you're a huge label getting your artists into wherever people buy CDs (probably Best Buy) then, I guess you could derive some value from the suggestions on CD sales, but if you're that big or you're going to be that big, you probably don't need this book because you're already successful or you already have a lot of experience in the industry.

I don't know, maybe it just wasn't for me and what I want to do, but there are definitely people looking at reviews here who would be better served not getting this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars quick and informative 24 Feb. 2015
By D. Patterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
We do a lot of indie promoting at work and honestly I knew nothing about it - couldn't even tell you what indie meant. This book was suggested to me and gave me a good amount of insight into the indie world. I'm not musical but it's given me a new respect for the artists we work with and how hard their job is. It seems like there are plenty of good tips in here and it gives clear objectives for anyone looking to get into this industry. It's pretty simply written so even I can understand the terms even though I previously knew pretty much nothing about music production. I would have liked to have seen a few more details if I was planning on using the advice in the book such as more on expenses and other modes of marketing like amazon mp3s etc.
5.0 out of 5 stars a very helpful book ! 16 Feb. 2015
By Natalie - Published on Amazon.com

This is really a very helpful book. I am still planning with having my own record label but I am being hesitant on having one for I don't have that much knowledge about this field but as I go over this book of Jordan Johnson, it just make things easier and I have finally decided to continue what I have planned with record label and I am very thankful for this book for giving me all the help and determination. Now, I wanted to share what I had through this book and will recommend this to everybody who are also planning on engaging on the same field.

Any recording artist has felt the hassle of trying to find the right label for their sound. What if the right label was their own? This book goes through the steps and processes of starting up your own record label. The book takes you on a journey though getting the radio to play your music, marketing your release and CD, getting it into stores, Copywriting, tours, and how to avoid some of the biggest mistakes in the business. It sounds daunting but this book breaks it down into simple ideas, giving advice and caution in all the right places. Maybe you’re not ready to jump in but this is a great place for those who want to or just want to know more.
