Hi Matthew

-I have done a study of Charles Adams Prince in the form of a 6 disc set - 
also available as mp3 - It is an overview of various vocalists from the era 
and also Columbia's early symphonic recordings from 1910 - 1918 - Mickey

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Books about the acoustic era

Hey folks,

I'm still brand new to the list so apologies if something like this has been 
asked before. I am currently researching American pop music of the acoustic 
era and I've found that in general histories of recorded sound, the acoustic 
era is often treated as a footnote to everything that came after it. For 
those who focus on that period, could you please recommend what your 
indispensable list of books about recording production and history during 
the acoustic era are?  (Meaning not straight discogs or catalogs, per se.) 
I'm looking for info more about the production side rather than the 
recording personalities (although there is of course overlap in many cases.) 
I am a classically trained musician with a background in music history 
(albeit medieval studies) so please don't be afraid to suggest more 
technical works. Thanks so much in advance!

P.S. If there is anyone with a copy of "Recording the Twenties" by Allan 
Sutton they'd be willing to part with, I really would like to read it but 
can't seem to get my hands on a copy!

Kind Regards,
