Customer Reviews

Incredible interviews with music legends

Joe Smith was a top record company executive (Warner Bros., Elektra, Capitol) who wrote an oral history of the music business in the late 1980s with a veritable Who's Who of over 200 music legends from Artie Shaw to Bono. These are some of the original, unedited audio tapes of those interviews. Great stuff.


Nice, interesting series. Adding Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull would be great.
