About this title


This alphabetical reference covers the entire spectrum of the recording of sound, from Edison's experimental cylinders to contemporary high technology. The major focus is on the recorded sound industry in the US, with additional material on Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The coverage is particularly strong on the earliest periods of recorded sound history 1877-1948, the 78 rpm era and 1949-1982, the LP era. In addition to performers and their work, entries also cover important commercial organizations, individuals who made significant technical contributions, societies and associations, sound archives and libraries, magazines, catalogs, award winners, technical topics, special and foreign terms, copyright laws, and other areas of interest. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

From Library Journal:

This volume is a truly unique work, covering the entire history of sound recording from pre-Edisonian devices to digital audio technology, with emphasis on the U.S. industry before World War II. Brief entries focus on personalities, societies, technical topics, labels, etc., with longer essays on select topics (e.g., "Gramophone Co."). The extremely browsable book is filled with minutiae and odd topics not readily found elsewhere, although the absence of many technical terms is a weakness. It functions as an excellent complement to Wayne Wadhams's Dictionary of Music Production and Engineering Technology (Schirmer: Macmillan, 1988). The information on labels alone makes this volume essential for the music collections of all academic and large public libraries.
