Description

Product Description

The bible of the music industry! Now in its tenth edition, This Business of Music has been revised and completely updated to reflect the latest changes in the ever-evolving music business. Every chapter has been revised. An entirely new chapter has been added, asking and answering the question “Are there borders in cyberspace?” The answer is yes, and the book clearly and concisely explains what they are and how to maintain them. Commentary on recent legislation, a reader-friendly summary of the laws on copyright duration, and much more insightful analysis—plus fully updated lists of music organizations and important websites—make This Business of Music indispensable for musicians, agents, managers, marketers, music publishers and groups, colleges and universities, and everyone who wants to make music and make money.

A must for anyone in or managing a band

My first encounter with this book was in 1987 while I was both in and managing a band. I found this book indespenseable. The information is presented in clear, easy to understand chapters that I have not seen elsewhere. Debbie Harry and Chris Stein of Blondie were asked what advice they would give to up and coming bands and without hesitation they replied in unison to take a year off and go to school. Learn the business and then pursue it. Music must be approached as a business, not as a job and not as ''fun''. It is work and it has to be approached seriously with a business plan. This book - now in a 2013 version is what a band of any age needs. It helps one understand what they are undertaking as well as the ins and outs and the legal aspects. Our band would say ''we are working tonight'' rather than ''we are playing tonight'' and that is how it must be if you want to get somewhere - and we did. There is no guarantee of course, but turn on the radio and you will hear a lot of talentless garbage that is making someone money. Not necessarily the band. Music is not about how good you are. Talent is only a part of the big picture. A band is a service not a product and a manager needs to know what is printed in this book and it certainly would benefit every bandmember to understand it as well. Why do so many great musicians find themselves broke ? They didn''t have this book. How do great songwriters loose all the rights to their own material ? They didn''t know what is in this book. The information here is appliciable to every band and every musician at every level. If you don''t know what is in this book you may as well get a day job and do music just for the fun, because you will never have a career of it.

My original copy of "This Business of Music" was one of the textbooks when I studied to be a recording engineer in the early ''90s. Last year, a friend told me she wanted me to manage her music career. I knew an updated copy of this book would be essential with all of the changes in technology and the law since I studied the industry. This book is essential to anyone considering a career in music. It thoroughly explains all aspects of the business in easy to read terms. Of particular interest is the section on copyright law.

If you are involved in any aspect of the industry, I highly recommend it.

The physical condition of the book was listed as Acceptable, but there is water and mold damage to the cover through the table of contents. Seems risky, health wise. As for the content of the book, it was a bit too technical for a beginner like me. I was in search of something comprehensive, but the majority of the book delves into too many granular nooks and crannies to be useful for my needs. Sadly, I regret this purchase.

Reviewed in the United States on September 23, 2017
Ok so, this is very well written. Super informative.Here''s the thing though, the music industry has evolved past the days of the standard record deal, I want to hear more about EPs and LPs and all the other types of deals, their terms and the fine nuances.

This warhorse of a textbook still gives you the information you need when you need it. My one complaint is that it''s still written in a very user unfriendly language. It just seems to me that this book can explain things with a little simpler English.

There are some good additions/changes to reflect current changes in the industry.

However, if you are a novice trying to get a feel for the machinations of the music industry, there are better books out there.

This book tells you everything you need to know about how the music business works. It''s a great book for beginners like myself and literally has every little detail you need to know.
