Submitter: This book needs to go! Aside from the horrible physical condition this particular copy is in (back cover fell off as I was handling it!), the content is terribly outdated. According to WorldCat, there are several more recent editions, so there is no excuse for this to be on the shelves.
I found this in an academic library. Maybe it’s there for folks looking up the history of self recording? WorldCat shows 167 libraries that still own this edition. Kinda scary!
Holly: What’s a record? Just kidding…I was a child of the 80s, so I grew up with records, but today’s college students didn’t. Maybe a university library with a very specialized music program would keep this, but even that seems like a stretch.
