Editorial Reviews

Review

In today's music world men still dominate the corporate corridors of most major labels. The good news is that the increased affordability of recording equipment has created alternate roads to achievement; and with the help of Diane Rapaport's book, women can take control of their own career destiny. Thorough guidelines are included here, not only for production and manufacturing, but also marketing formulas that can be tailored to target women's music audiences. In covering every detail, Diane expresses that fledgling producers will wear many hats. The inspiration lies in examples of success such as Olivia Records (190) and Redwood, two women's music labels that went from humble beginnings to national acclaim. In her words, "the soul of recording is the love of music and the desire to share it." This book is a must read for women serious about developing their talent and reaching that sought-after audience. -- From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by Lenore Troia

From the Publisher

Referred to as the musician's bible, this comprehensive manual covers every aspect of recording and shows step-by-step how to set up a small independent recording label for promoting and marketing from one to many titles.

Format: Paperback
I originally purchased the second addition of this book. It inspired me to Open my own record store back in 1989. The record store, called Locals Only was based on thing I learned from reading the book and using that knowledge. Here we are almost in 2001 and those principles still stand. We operate a website...that has been vibrant since its launch in 1995. This book is a great starting point for anyone serious about making it as an independent artist.

I received this book at The Art Institute of Philadelpphia as a text book, while I studied Music and Video Business. Before I entered school, I had always been an artist manager. I learned a lot about the industry over the years. "How To Make And Sell Your Own Recordings" became one of my most important guide books. It helped me to aquire the skills to do everything myself. "How To Make And Sell Your Own Recordings" has a lot of valuable information for any artist manager or independent musician. It helps to ensure that you present yourself in a professional way without the need to hire out.
