Clive Selwood is the fellow who invented "chart hyping," the fellow who begun the 1st "hippie" list label, and who pioneered the idea that of radio "session" recordings with some of the most profitable autonomous list labels ever. exchanging Des O’Connor as a Butlin Redcoat, falling foul of London gangsters, taking an enormous checklist corporation to the head of the league, getting fired and taking candy revenge by way of making its major rival the No.1 singles company—Clive Selwood has had his fingerprints everywhere in the mystery machinations of either the united kingdom and foreign track industries for over 4 many years. A director of such overseas checklist businesses as Elektra, united kingdom documents, CBS, and Pye, and author, with John Peel, of the Dandelion self sustaining label and weird Fruit files, Clive Selwood labored with such mythical names as Jim Morrison, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen, Barry White, Rod Stewart, Abba, Elton John, and hundreds and hundreds extra. Illustrated with pictures from the author’s deepest collection, this memoir covers each side of the tune business—lawyers, chart solving, advertising, list construction, tune fairs, list executives and personalities, artist administration, intercourse, bribery, and the construction of either winning and unsuccessful list businesses. Having helped to form and advisor the careers of a few of the world’s top recording artists, Clive Selwood chooses to commit this attention-grabbing memoir to the thousands of "air guitarists" with the entire vintage strikes in their heroes—from Slowhand to Slipknot—but none in their licks, and the numerous souls trapped in mundane jobs who dream of the chance and the thrill that the tune company would seem to offer.
