About this Item

349 pages. Softcover. Good condition. MUSIC. In 1877 Thomas Edison turned the crank of his latest invention and heard it repeat the nursery rhyme he had just spoken into its mouthpiece. The world has never been quite the same since. When Roland Gelatt's history of this truly fabulous invention was first published it was hailed as a classic work in its field. This new edition has been revised and updated to include stereo and quadraphonic sound, tape cassettes and cartridges, the rock explosion and its superstars, The result is a one-of-a-kind volume, illustrated with rare photographs, that traces the phonograph through its entire history. Includes an Index.
