Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now completely updated and revised, this streetwise guide helps musicians, producers, and others protect their rights and preserve their assets in today's cutthroat music recording industry. Industry insider Moses Avalon tells it like it is - how producers dip into budgets, artists steal songs, labels skim royalties, lawyers write contracts in code - and shows readers how to survive in the wake of these and other unfortunate truths. Deconstructing actual major record deals, Avalon dissects each party's involvement and perspective: what they actually do, how much they get paid, and what's really on their agenda. This second edition examines the impact of recent developments in the industry, including Internet file sharing and streaming, mergers and acquisitions, trade associations and their agendas, and more.

Book News Annotation:

Avalon (the pseudonym of a record producer who has worked for BMG and Warner Brothers) dissects the music business, explaining who's in it for what, and the tricks that are used to cheat artists, writers, producers, and managers in this notoriously greed infested industry. After explaining who the various players and what their agendas are, he discusses the legal aspects of the major and indie label deals, the language of contracts, and issues such as copyright protection, master fraud, and marketing ploys. Avalon's sympathy is obviously with the small-time artists, engineers, and producers, as he explains the scams that record companies and other players use to routinely rip each other off (of course the record companies usually come out on top).
