Well researched, but my brain hurts,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Appetite for Self-Destruction: The Spectacular Crash of the Record Industry in the Digital Age (Paperback)
This book was very readable and I got through it in a few days, but...the facts were just too much. It was a ticker tape of facts, much of it concentrating on the early days of the music business and the record label executive names.
There was a lot of research and interviewing of those who were involved in the labels at that time, but I would have liked to have read more from the artists who were ripped off.
Overall it is quite a good read, but there is nothing particularly new here. The title explains what the book is about, but it all gets a bit wishy washy when it talks about the present day. Worth it for the history lesson though, so 4 stars.
