The Recording Angel book. With the invention of sound recording, music became a "thing" - it could be bought and experienced whenever desired. And Eisenberg points out that with the work of funk musician George Clinton, it became a "thang. ) Eisenberg discusses, in down-to-earth I first read The Recording Angel 20 years ago, and I reread it every couple of years.

Music has existed for millennia, but recorded sound only arrived with Thomas Edison in the late 19th century. How did the advent of records change music? It’s a huge, thorny question, and Eisenberg’s book remains the classic treatment. He approaches his subject from both philosophical and psychological standpoints, probing the difference between communal and private listening, examining the ways records function as commodities, and explaining how people define themselves by the records they listen to. 91.

I'm amazed to see that no one has reviewed this book, not even in its earlier edition. That edition was written in 1987. The new edition came out a couple of years ago, but it's basically the same book.

Overall it is very intelligent, thought provoking, and witty. Eisenberg wrestles with the experience of listening to recorded music. What does listening to recorded music do to us, and what does the process of recording do to music?

It's a collection of twelve essays that can be read in any order. Eisenberg is very well read. He seems to have read everything anybody has ever said about music and recorded music. So it's like a crash course in the aesthetics of music.

Eisenberg studied philosophy, and he veers between the personal and the very philosophical. From time to time he throws in a word that seems to be there solely to make you consult a dictionary. "... we can hear Vaughan William's Sixth Symphony as a peroration on the absolutely empty field of a future war." At this point I bet that most of us need to look up "peroration."

A very enjoyable book on the joys of record collecting. A gift from my father. I enjoyed it and the book expanded my thoughts on my own collection. If you are not into collecting music, you still might enjoy it, but if you are a collector, you will certainly enjoy it.
