A Fabulous Creation Free download ¶ 102 Trying to reverse engineer the creative process in order to make big money Nobody would play music or listen to it in uite the same way ever againIt was a short but transformative time Musicians became ‘artists’ and we the people patrons of the arts The LP itself had been a mark of sophistication a measure of wealth an instrument of education a poster saying things you dare not say you I have always enjoyed David Hepworth s writing whether it be his music journalism for various publications or recently the music based books that he has written and this one s no exception Hepworth serves up a history of the rockpop long playing record from the Beatles 1967 release Sgt Pepper s Lonely Hearts Club Band through to Micheal Jackson s Thriller in 1982 He picks Sgt Pepper as his starting point as basically this was in his opinion the first proper album which didn t just contain 2 hit singles and a load of filler and ends with Thriller as from then on record companies were interested in making money than the music The chapters are written for each specific year and he describes the significant albums from those years and also the innovations in the recording of the music and in the music industry that came about during those years How music went from a communal pursuit where friends would gather round the stereo system listening to the latest albums to it becoming a singular activity where people listened on headphones to their Walkman or to present day where we now listen to downloads on our phones I thoroughly enjoyed this book but like most music books I don t always agree with the author s view but that s music for you I am slightly younger than Mr Hepworth and my serious music buying didn t start until the early 70 s and therefore my taste is slightly different and my view of some records vary from his but that s probably because a lot of the earlier stuff I only discovered later in life However a lot of the things he describes rang a lot of bells with me especially how we had to hunt down particular records and also the pride one felt carrying a specific album about under ones arm as we walked about town I always enjoy the tone of Mr Hepworth writing which I have difficulty explaining but he is very god at writing peoplethings down but in a humorous way and with some very witty rejoinders I also enjoyed the appendix at the end of the book where he gives a brief review of the significant albums of each year that the book covers and it also gave me a few ideas of bands that need further exploration on my partI look forward to his next publication which is Rock n Roll A Level which I assume will be a a challenging uiz book by the sound of it
