These music business books are some of the best music industry books. They have almost everything you need to know about the music industry. I ran across these oldies but goodies while doing some spring cleaning. Back in the day these were used as the text books for several music business courses at Berklee College of Music. Based on the reviews and comments the current editions still hold up and are still the standard today.
