Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay : The Dodgy Business of Popular Music Hardback


Welcome to the music business, a world of greed, corruption, self-interest and fun... This is the ultimate insider history of how popular music has evolved, not just as a creative industry, but as a business that has made people rich beyond their wildest dreams.

From the printing of sheet music and piano rolls to the world of downloads and streaming, Ta-Ra-Ra-Boom-De-Ay is stuffed full of fascinating anecdotes - but it is also a seriously insightful exploration of the relationship between creativity and the money that can be made from it, by a man whose own career spans six decades; the legendary Simon Napier-Bell.
