Follow the Music: The Life and High Times of Elektra Records in the Great Years of American Pop Culture

£9.99

Product description

Follow the Music tells the story of one of the finest and most respected record labels of the golden age of pop and rock music from the perspective of the man who founded the company and nurtured its stars. It follows Holzman on his journey from overseeing limited pressings of obscure folk artists to signing international stars such as Jim Morrison, right up to the sale of the company and beyond. Since its initial publication in 1998, the book has been described as "a must-read addition to the best chronicles of popular music in this over-stimulated century" by Timothy White, editor in chief at Billboard magazine, and an "extraordinary history ... funny, enlightening, and entertaining" by the All Music Guide . This edition includes a 26-track CD of recordings by Elektra's pre-rock artists.

This paperback book and accompanying CD are both in very good condition.
