Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A guide to the music industry for undergraduate and graduate students in music and music management, covering aspects of the music business such as songwriting, publishing, copyright, artist management, media, administration, promotion, recording, and retailing. Includes an overview of the music business system, a chapter on career planning and development, a brief section on the Canadian music industry, and numerous checklists, sample forms, and contracts, plus a glossary and a list of professional organizations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Tim Hays
"This Eighth Edition of the familiar Baskerville opus is easily the most up-to-date version ever printed. Two new chapters add needed subjects to the past array, 'Starting Your Own Business' and 'The Digital Age.' The latter, discussing downloading, digital hardware, and copyright initiatives, is a welcome relief for those of us attempting to keep up. I've always been a fan of the text since it is the only one that is truly comrephensive in scope. Baskerville covers the waterfront. No other book even attempts to do this."
The Bookwatch
"A focus on all kinds of interactions between artist and producer, record company executive to band, makes Music Business Handbook And Career Guide one of the most comprehensive music business books on the market."
