The Recording Angel: Music, Records and Culture from Aristotle to Zappa

前表紙
Yale University Press, 2005/01/01 - 246 ページ
First published in 1987 and now considered a classic, The Recording Angel charts the ways in which the phonograph and its cousins have transformed our culture. In a new Afterword, Evan Eisenberg shows how digital technology, file trading, and other recent developments are accelerating--or reversing--these trends. Influential and provocative, The Recording Angel is required reading for anyone who cares about the effect recording has had--and will have--on our experience of music.
