Riassunto: (Book). Follow the Music tells the story of one of the finest and most respected record labels of the golden age of pop and rock music from the perspective of the man who founded the company and nurtured its stars. It follows Holzman on his journey from overseeing limited pressings of obscure folk artists to signing international stars such as Jim Morrison, right up to the sale of the company and beyond. Since its initial publication in 1998, the book has been described as "a must-read addition to the best chronicles of popular music in this over-stimulated century" by Timothy White, editor in chief at Billboard magazine, and an "extraordinary history ... funny, enlightening, and entertaining" by the All Music Guide . This edition includes a 26-track CD of recordings by Elektra's pre-rock artists.
Recensione: The Doors, Love, Judy Collins, Tim Buckley, and Phil Ochs were all products of the nurturing environment at the Elektra Records of the '60s and early '70s. With help from coauthor Gavan Daws, the label's then head, Jac Holzman, collects his reminiscences and those of many of his cohorts in the enlightening, often hilarious Follow the Music: The Life and High Times of Elektra Records in the Great Years of American Pop Culture. This oral history follows Holzman's exploits from his days as a producer of small pressings of obscure folk music to his signing of rockers like Jim Morrison and Arthur Lee and his eventual sale of the company and subsequent departure. Before he left, though, Holzman and friends had irrevocably altered, as he says, the "recording technique, packaging, marketing and the behavioral sciences of rock and roll." --Rickey Wright
