Book Search: A Book About Recording Rock Music Written in the late 80s
May 24, 2020 8:43 AM   Subscribe

The book explored how various artists used the recording studio to sculpt music as opposed to how it's played live. I recall there were specific chapters on the works of Martin Oldfield and Jimmy Page.

Anyway, I think it was the late 80s but it could have been early 90s. I had checked it out of the library and meant to get a copy, but life got in the way. I thought of it the other day and now I have to track it down. Perhaps the author was British. I've tried Google but it only points me to biographies of those two musicians and nothing even close to what I remember.

I don't remember specific artists but could have been Behind the Glass

Behind the Glass seems to fit the bill.

Yeah, it wasn't Behind the Glass.
