Recently arrived review copies:
The Long Tail by Chris Anderson. Chris has been formulating his thesis online before releasing it in book form; we wrote about what his meme means for the Blogosphere last year, and will have more on the topic in the not too distant future.
The Frustrated Songwriter’s Handbook by Karl Coryat & Nicholas Dobson. Is someone trying to tell me something?
Plug-In Power by Ashley Shepherd. Another book for home recording enthusiasts; a guide to all of the powerful sound-altering effects both built-into home recording programs, or available separately.
Led Zeppelin: A Story of a Band and Their Music: 1968-1980 by Keith Shadwick. I don’t agree with all of the author’s conclusions about specific tracks and albums (he really loathes In Through The Outdoor, which I thought was a remarkable album, particularly considering how far gone half the band was), but a good, authoritative look at the 1970’s most influential band.
