First published in 1987 and now considered a classic, The Recording Angel charts the ways in which the phonograph and its cousins have transformed our culture. In a new Afterword, Evan Eisenberg shows how digital technology, file trading, and other recent developments are accelerating-or reversing-these trends. Influential and provocative, The Recording Angel is required reading for anyone who cares about the effect recording has had-and will have-on our experience of music.
