    An unlikely topic that I stumbled upon while looking for some titles related to the history of the phonograph Very interesting premise that the use of reverb and echo in recordings creates a sense of space that has much greater emotional significance than consciously perceived Sounds like a musicological term paper, but the scope of the book and the comments make for interesting and thought provoking reading Not for everyone s taste, but if you have any serious interest in the history of recorded music it s an unusual and entertaining book.

    Kudos to the author for his ability to fill a book about the use of of echo and reverb in music and film Theres a lot of fluff and opinion here that could have been edited better The author is well versed in many styles of music and quotes some of the best music writers A key theme of the book is the concept of spatial recording to evoke a sense of place or to enhance lyrical content I enjoyed the Robert Johnson Ry Cooder theory and the chapter on the commercialization of Hawaiian music.
