Description
Some of the world's best-known musicians are also passionate advocates of preserving music as cultural heritage, as are music producers, curators, independent collectors, and anthropologists, and they spend much time and effort in finding, recording, and, if possible, preserving these traditions. Mickey Hart, percussionist for the Grateful Dead, guides this grand tour of their efforts, profiling figures like Jesse Fewkes, who made the first field recordings on wax cylinders in 1890; John and Alan Lomax, whose work with American folk and blues artists helped define modern music; and Afro-musicologist Laura Boulton. The book is heavily illustrated with color and archival photos.
