Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Holzman, founder of Elektra Records, shares his experiences with Elektra and the classical Nonesuch line, from their origins in the late Fifties through the golden age of the Sixties. Holzman lived a classic American success storysomeone with new ideas who persevered in spite of initial discouragement and won. Along the way he met and records many of the most talented musicians of the era, including Judy Collins, Jim Morrison, Carly Simon, and Jackson Browne. Most of these artists, and other companions of the time, participated in the many thoughtful interviews (mostly new) contained here. The interviews provide inside information on the music and artists who made Elektra a success. A complete Elektra discography plus reproductions of many of the innovative Elektra and Nonesuch album covers are fine added touches. This book is the first in a projected series on the recording industry. If the succeeding volumes are as engrossing as this one, they will be valuable additions to most music collections.James E. Ross, WLN, Seattle
