Popular music : the age of multimedia
... by Andrew Blake, Professor of Media and Cultural Studies at the University of East London. New book in the Whittaker Library. The blurb begins, "Is there too much music?", and looks at "the spectacular growth in the availability of music, the ways in which the traditional music industry has fought to regain its control, and the ways in which the rest of us ... use music in this age of abundance."
