Recorded music is a new art form, bringing us luminaries such as Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Leopold Stokowski, the Beatles, and Glenn Gould - and a new business commodity as well. In this provocative collection of essays, Evan Eisenberg explores the ways in which records have transformed both the way we listen to music, and the very nature of music-making. Eisenberg also treats us to some vivid accounts of lives profoundly affected - in fact, practically overcome - by recorded music. This lively, fast-paced book draws inspiration from the philosopher's study, elevators filled with canned music, rock studios, and classical concert halls to investigate the record's impact on all of us.
