Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a complete history of the 45 rpm record from the birth of the recording industry through the format's invention, development, marketing, and current standing. The book describes how this new technology and rock and roll, born almost simultaneously, became a single world-shaking phenomenon; how upstart labels broke into the market while major labels tried to outfox each other; and how musical and music-industry personalities shaped this fascinating history. Along the way are stories of legendary records and artists and 100 color and black-and-white photos.

Synopsis:

Includes discographies (p. 134-149), bibliographical references (p. 166-168), and index.

Synopsis:

The complete and colourful history of the 45 RPM record and its revolutionary influence on popular culture.
