Synopsis: Why does the Parlophone label have a pound sign as its logo? Why did Decca turn down the Beatles? Why is the record industry in such a terrible state these days? The answers to these and many other questions can be found in this authoritative history of the record industry. Based on extensive archive and library research as well as a host of interviews with the people who made it all happen, this book takes in everything from Edison's first experiments with tin-foil to the panic brought on by downloading, via mergers, demergers, visionaries, crooks, fads, crazes, movements and Frampton Comes Alive. Along the way it describes what the industry got right (usually by accident) and what it got catastrophically wrong.

About the Author: Louis Barfe was born in 1973 in Epsom, Surrey. He studied at Lancaster University. He has written for Private Eye, The Oldie, Publishing News, New Statesman and Crescendo and Jazz Music. His first book, Where Have All the Good Times Gone: The Rise and Fall of the Record Industry, was published by Atlantic Books in 2004. Turned Out Nice Again is his latest book.
