It's almost that time of the year, Happy Halloween!!!
Here's few scary thoughts...US population reached 300 mill this month (does anybody else think its getting crowded?) while the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) says total music sales in the first half of 2006 fell to $13.7bn (£7.4bn) a 4% drop since 05. Countries seeing a rise are Japan (12%), South Korea (5%) and Australia (6%), balanced by many seeing a fall, including Germany (-4%), the US (-7%) and France (-9%). The cost of war in Iraq grows by at least $200 million each day. And, the bare naked truth on music file sharing is...the kids do it and most music consumers do it! Does that scare us? Nah! Learn how mighty artists and managers still come on top..with healthy fan base, touring, licensing and merchandising revenues.

Thanks for those of you who called during the studioexpresso 48 hrs blackout last week--due to site migration to a host with, well...more MOJO!
So, here we are, it's October and we've got great music news from our community.

Live In-Studio Sessions With Robert Shahnazarian Jr

The Decemberists were at Sony studios in Santa Monica to record four acoustic bonus tracks that will be available at Connect.com. The new downloads will coincide with the release of the band's new album, The Crane Wife on Capitol Records
"An atmosphere of total creative freedom surrounded the sessions," says Robert Shahnazarian who was at the helm of The Decemberists sessions earlier in October. "The group, songwriter/lead, Colin Meloy, multi-instrumentalist Chris Funk and Jenny Conlee (accordion and keyboards), bassist Nate Query and drummer John Moenm are amazingly talented musicians," says Robert

The Decemberists Live-In-the Studio Sessions recorded and mixed by Robert Shahnazarian at Sony Studios.

According to the mixer/engineer, the studio he put together at Sony which was designed by Vincent Van Haff, is tuned really well, allowing him the flexibility to both record and mix in the same room. For The Decemerists session, Robert had the band sit with their instruments in a semi-circle in the main room. "I miked all the instruments -- accordion, guitar, slide guitar, violin, chime, Tom, Snare and 3 vox -- separately and let them play like they would in a rehearsal studio," says Shahnazarian who oversees the operation of Sony Studios in Santa Monica, CA where he has mixed and engineered over 1001 songs for Live-In-The Studio Sessions for Sony Connect Set artists to include: All American Rejects, Alien Ant Farm, The Killers, Kelly Clarkson, Super Furry Animals. Robert who also produces (credits: Dead City Sunday "Individuals Are Born" ) began his career in 1991 interning at Capitol Records and at KCRW on the radio program Café LA with Tom Schnabel. A graduate of Pepperdine University, Robert has spent a decade at Sony in various departments to include legal affairs and A&R.


Music In The Making With Steve MacMillan

For most the Internet is replacing the smokey clubs...now you can find a new band or catch icons like Earth Wind And Fire at Rehearsal.com. Chart toppers and emerging stars are all gathered under one roof. Watch Hoobastank and Alien Ant Farm work out the kinks in the enormous soundstage. Roger Paglia, CEO of center staging is offering the worldwide Internet audience a chance to be the proverbial fly on the wall.

The Green Room offers inside information on all rehearsals.com artists, updates on tour schedules and even lessons from the legendary musicians like Kenny Aronoff, Patrice Rushen, Abe Laboriel Jr. and Burt Bacharach are offered on the site. Hear Kenny talks about Beat, time, groove!

studioexpresso caught up with one of the key mixer/engineers, Steve MacMillan who produces quarter of the content at Rehearsals.com. "It's exciting to mix for such a great and varied collection of artists, captured live doing what they do best," says MacMillan who is known for his work with Kelly Clarkson, Seal, Mike Oldfield, Celine Dion and Shania Twain among others. He recently mixed songs from Chris Isaak's hit-laden discography for both Rehearsal.com and Major League Baseball.com websites. Isaak is chronicling the biggest moments of his career on a CD/DVD set for $24.99. The CD is chock-full of songs that Isaak's fans request most on the road, as well as rarities like an acoustic take on "Forever Blue" and a cover of Cheap Trick's "I Want You to Want Me."

Johnny Caswell and Jan Parent met in 1980 and began cultivating their dream of providing the highest quality rehearsal space to the working professional musician. They became the conduit between television producers and musicians to more effectively accomplish production goals and have grown the business under the banner CenterStaging Musical Productions, Inc. Today the facility offers 11 rehearsal studios occupying over 100,000 square feet of space, the largest of its kind in Southern California and CenterStaging East is located just outside Philadelphia.

Alejandro Sanz
El Tren De Los Momentos
Warmer Intl.

The single from Alejandro Sanz' new album, “A La Primera Persona (To the First Person)" was released worldwide on September 25 and has set a record for digital sales. After only 24 hours, the song held the first position of downloaded songs on mobile phones and it debuted at number one on the iTunes single charts. Great start, in aticipation of Sanz' new album from Warner Intl, El Tren De Los Momentos (The Train of Moments), due out on Nov 7.

Guest stars on the album include: Juanes, Antonio Carmona, Alex Conzales (Maná) Shakira and Calle 13.

The video for “A La Primera Persona” was directed by respected Spanish photographer/director Jaume De Laiguana. The clip was filmed in the New York and features Sanz and Spanish actress Paz Vega.

A La Primera Persona tells a story of torn love, the usual Sanz theme woven in rich and sophisticated arrangements by Sanz and his album co-producer, acclaimed Cuban musician Lulo Perez who also plays on various instruments to include: piano, trumpet, electric Guitar, percussion, synth bass and Hammond.

Most of the material was recorded at Alejandro's own home studio with mixes for bonus digital tracks done at After Hours in LA and Criteria in Miami. Engineers and mixers on this album were Rafa Sardina (Macy Gray, Stevie Wonder, Dr Dre) and Thom Russo (Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton, Maná).

This is the tenth album in multi-Grammy winner Alejandro Sanz’s career and the first time he has recorded new material since “No es lo mismo” (in 2003). Sanz has sold over 21 million albums worldwide, 200 platinum discs, 15 Latin and 1 Grammy Awards, as well as other major international recognition, including having the hit single, “La Tortura” with Shakira. Sanz was most recently on stage with Shakira again at the American Airlines concert in Miami and during her “Oral Fixation” tour and at the Madison Square Garden in New York.

As a humanitarian Sanz has given himself tirelessly. During his last tour he took 61 photos, with the artistic support of the photographer, Jaume de Laiguana. Four of these photographs, from a series titles "Ida y vuelta" (There and Back), together with four of Blanco’s abstract oil paintings were exhibited at the legendary Nuyorican Poets Cafe, in the East Village in Manhattan last July. Funds raised from this show went to Wayuu Tayá Foundation, created by actress and model, Patricia Vásquez. NGO works to help preserve the life and customs of the Wayuu people in the Venezuelan Guajira district (reported by Unicef as second poorest region of South America).
Sanz is scheduled to perform at the 7th Annual latin Grammy Awards on Nov 2nd.

The Farce of The Penguins

The cheeky satire of award-winning documentary March Of The Penguins, due for release later this year, was so dirty Saget was convinced the film would be refused a cinema release.

Original Music is by Peter Rodgers Melnick with voiceover talent to include: Samuel L. Jackson, Jason Alexander, Mo'nique, Whoopi Goldberg and Carlos Mencia.



Anthony Wilson Nonet
Power of Nine
Groove Note Reecords

Jazz lovers will enjoy the latest from Anthony Wilson who has been recording and touring the world with the celebrated vocalist/pianist Diana Krall since he joined her in 2001 for her Grammy-winning CD/DVD “Live In Paris” (Verve Records). Recent recordings and concert appearances with the likes of Al Jarreau, Aaron Neville, and Madeleine Peyroux have served to spotlight Wilson’s growing artistry.

His latest release offers horns, reeds, and keyboards with the recording that offers multiple dimensionality and brings out the textures and timbres of Wilson’s guitar playing. A truly warm and evocative record from Producer Joe Harley and our fab engineer/mixer Micahel C Ross.

Diane Krall guests in one song, “Looking Back” with Wilson’s arrangement. A Brazilian influenced series of “Quadras” takes up most of side two. Wilson’s notes explain both the inspiration (a New Year’s holiday in Brazil) and the musical construction. "It was clear that documenting the trio was the only way to go when producer Joe Harley approached me to make a record for the audiophile label Groove Note Reecords. The sessions were a joy: again, no headphones, no separation: just the three of us in a room, close together, playing. And the sound, captured by engineer Ross
is fab! We understand it's on the list of Grammy nominated albums, for your voters out there (hint, hint)!


The Bird And The Bee
Again And Again And Again
Blue Note

Greg Kurstin & Inara George are fab music makers. They met a few years ago, discovered a common love of jazz standards...nerded out for a couple of hours playing every song they knew...and then wrote and recorded a record together. Their new release on Blue Note will come out sometime before January 2007 Meantime, EP is in the stores on October 31st. You can also check the band at the Silverlake Lounge October 27 (tonight!) or at The Bowery Ballroom on Nov 1 and Webster Hall on Nov 21(San Diego, Seattle and San Francisco dates listed at Myspace)

Inara's cool voice (Annie Lennox meets Everclear) is layered in lush textured melodies and harmonies with injection of midi work that's electronica meets jazz. The lyrics are carefree echoing teen talk (Fcking Boyfriend; I hate you I want you) and at times more mature conversations (Are you prepared for the atom bomb?) flow over a mood (Again and Again) that's like being in a French movie on a showery April afternoon, c'est manifique! I'm adding this one to my party playlist.

Thanks Eddie Miller for spotting The Bird And The Bee.
You're a good match. Send more soon!

A Singular Perfomrer; A Singular Microphone
Ian Moore & The Soundelux Elux 251

Ian Moore and Luminaria (Click on the cd for sound bites from this album)

A daring singer/songwriter who has developed a devoted following for six adventurous albums, Moore has taken control of the recording process by helming his own studio in the Northwest hideaway of Vashon Island. Gifted with an inspiringly expressive voice and multi-instrumental virtuosity, Moore looks to the Soundelux ELUX 251 microphone to help bring his visions to the world.

"I'm always looking for a microphone that serves a purpose," says Moore, who is currently working on his seventh CD slated for release in the spring of 2007. "I'm not interested in transparency, I'm looking for amazing character, and the ELUX 251 is a brilliant mic for my voice. It works really well in capturing the soul of my voice, the power, and the nuance - realistic yet mysterious. The upper mid frequencies capture that space right below the sibilant "S" sound that makes the voice sound really intimate when sung quietly and really present when opened up. To me, the sound is very similar to the vocal sound on a lot of Lanois' 90s productions where the vocal seems to be at the very front of the mix with the music creating an impressionistic background."

The Austin, Texas-bred Moore, whose critically acclaimed albums such as "Modernday Folklore," "And All the Colors," and "Luminaria," have been labeled as indie folk, psychedelia, distorted, and everything in between, remembers clearly when he was introduced to the sound of the Soundelux ELUX 251. While recording a one-off song for a Nick Drake tribute in a Seattle studio, Moore's engineer placed the legendary Telefunken ELA M251, in front of him and his acoustic guitar.

"It was an epiphany," he recalls. "He put this mic ten feet in front of me, brought it up, and it was the best sound I've ever heard in my life. It sounded like I'd always imagined my voice and guitar to sound like, with life, character and quality in the low-end. To this day, it's one of my favorite recordings ever. I said, 'I've got to get one of those.'"

Moore's research among trusted engineers and producers confirmed that the mid-range focus, powerful bottom, and airy, unabrasive top-end of the lovingly engineered Soundelux ELUX 251 made it a highly valued, world-class performer. Now that Moore has built his own simple Pro Tools Digi 002-centered studio, the ELUX 251 has become an essential component for his self-engineered sessions, which range from traditional setups to highly experimental.

"It's a really versatile microphone," says Moore of the ELUX 251, which is switchable between omni, cardioid, and figure-8 patterns. "I can really nail it if I sing hard, especially when paired with a Universal Audio LA-610 mic pre and an LA-2A compressor going to the 002 rig. It sounds terrific. You get this amazing transformer distortion, like a tube amp. When you hear a singer do that, it's got emotion and urgency, and I like the recordings where I can hear that.

"I've used it as a mono room mic for a very haunting drum sound. It's also really beautiful on acoustic guitar, with a lot of nice top-end that brings out the delicate qualities of my 1943 Gibson GI guitar, as well as the low-end. It's a really nice balance. Generally, I mic it right around the 12th fret with the ELUX 251, and I get a very full effect. I can do what I want to do."

Designed with features such as a true transformer balanced output, and NOS dual triode with traditional resistive (not transistor) load and enhanced original circuitry, for a unique vintage amplification curve and dynamics response, the Soundelux ELUX 251 has left a permanent impression on the sound of Ian Moore. "This microphone is a great tool," he concludes. "I was up until 6 am this morning with it, working and having a ball. I'm just really enamored with the ELUX 251."

A-Designs Audio introduced the “PACIFICA”, a single rack space, dual (mono/mono) channel microphone pre amplifier that comes amazingly close to the original in looks and sound. There are few but valuable improvements, such as a front panel active hi-z 1ž4 inch input that places the input transformer directly in the signal path for a huge direct sound. The PACIFICA possesses a uniquely “Made in California” feel with a significant heft from the huge transformers contained within. The original cream colored panel and red knob scheme has been retained. We think the A Designs PACIFICA will achieve an instant classic status, becoming an important part of your “must haves” for years to come.

for news from your music and audio world...this month:

Google Acquires YouTube for 1.6 billion

YouTube cofounders Chad Hurley, 29, left, and Steven Chen, 27 (AP Photo)

The price makes YouTube Inc. (sporting Wendy's .99 cent burger ad on its home page), a still-unprofitable startup, by far the most expensive purchase made by Google during its eight-year history. Last year, Google spent $130.5 million buying a total of 15 small companies. The two companies even share a common financial bond: Sequoia Capital, an early Google investor that owns a roughly 30 percent stake in YouTube. Menlo Park-based Sequoia remains a major Google shareholder and retains a seat on the company's board -- factors that might have helped the deal come together after just a week of negotiation.

Legal experts and industry veterans say Google stands to inherit court challenges from independent film makers, garage bands, television studios and others who claim their copyright infringers. Now artists and companies could look to YouTube’s new deep-pocket backer for payment, either in business deals or courtroom battles.

The New York Times reports that YouTube gave each label an equity stake that just hours later was valued at up to $50 million from the Google acquisition. Three of the four major music companies — Vivendi’s Universal Music Group, Sony and Bertelsmann’s jointly owned Sony BMG Music Entertainment, and the Warner Music Group — each quietly negotiated to take small stakes in YouTube as part of video- and music-licensing deals they struck shortly before the sale

Google is betting that the popular video-sharing site will provide it an increasingly lucrative marketing hub as more viewers and advertisers migrate from television to the Internet.

YouTube will continue to retain its brand, its new headquarters in San Bruno and all 67 employees, including co-founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. Meanwhile, Google will continue to run a less popular video service on its own site.

"We are excited to have the resources to move faster than ever before," says Hurley, YouTube's 29-year-old CEO

Schmidt thinks so highly of Hurley and Chen, 28, that he compared them to Google's now 33-year-old cofounders, Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

YouTube announced new partnerships with Universal Music Group, CBS Corp. and Sony BMG Music Entertainment. Those alliances followed a similar arrangement announced last month with Warner Music Group Inc.

Google Inc. shares climbed $8.50 to close at $429 on the Nasdaq Stock Market. Meanwhile according to RIAA, the overall estimated retail value of the industry, when shipments of physical products to various outlets are combined with the estimated value of digital revenue streams, was $4.9 billion during the first half of 2006. That represents a 6.1 percent decline when compared to the first six months of 2005.


Exec Exodus At Sanctuary

Merck Mercuriadis

With acts to include Groove Armada, Guns N' Roses, Iron Maiden, Manic Street Preachers, Mick Fleetwood, Slayer, Slipknot and Super Furry Animals, Sanctuary artists is going through an exodus of key managers to include Merck Mercuriadis (AXL Rose), cofounder and worldwide artist relations head Rod Smallwood (Iron Maiden) and Craig Jennings (Funeral for a friend, Yourcodenameis: MIlo, Bullet for My Valentine and Fightstar) are rumored to leave. Peter Asher, Rick Sales and Carl Stubner are still in the LA office.

Smallwood and fellow Cambridge University student Andy Taylor founded Smallwood-Taylor Enterprises - later renamed Sancturay Group in 1976. Three years later, the pair signed Iron Maiden who exits with Smallwood. Mercuriadis who served more than 16 years at Santcuray is expected to join mega managers Irving Azoff and Howard Kaufman at Front Line.

Sony BMG - Looking From The Top

Rob Stringer, CEO Sony; Sir Howard Stringer with the Sony president, Ryoji Chubachi (Michael Caronna/Bloomberg News)

Over a month ago, Rob Stringer officially took the helm of the Sony U.S. label group - essentially replacing Donnie Ienner (& Michele Anthony were let go in June) , the longtime executive who reigned with a heavy hand and an outsized personality. Stringer, incidentally, is the younger brother of Sir Howard Stringer, the chief executive officer of Sony.

Stringer, who had headed the company's U.K. division, is said to be scrupulously going over the company's personnel rolls looking for cuts, since nearly 2,000 layoffs worldwide following the 2004 merger between Sony Music and Bertelsmann's BMG

Sources say Sony's urban music division is to be altered which boasts such hit artists as Beyonce, Shakira, AC/DC and Jessica Simpson.

With Sony's stock up 24 percent in the last year, Sir Howard has the wind at his back — for now, at least. Part of the reason for that handsome stock surge is the overall buoyancy in the Japanese stock market. So far, the reviews for Sir Howard's first year are better than those that have greeted "The Da Vinci Code." For one thing, the company's Bravia televisions — a result of a joint venture with Samsung— have given him bragging rights in a category in which Sony previously stumbled. He also gets credit for holding onto the financial services business rather than selling it as soon as he took over, a move that many analysts had erroneously predicted. "Stringer hasn't had such a big impact on earnings," said Yuji Fujimori, an analyst in Tokyo for Goldman Sachs. "But he's succeeded in changing the tone of the company." "I think he feels it's an honor to be given this job, and it is such an unusual set of circumstances that he feels duty-bound to get it right," Rob said.

In the near term, much is riding on the PlayStation 3 — which was delayed by several months and has cost more to produce than the company envisioned — and the success of Blu-ray, the high-definition DVD format that Sony pioneered. While PlayStation 3 runs the risk of being lapped by other platforms such as Microsoft's Xbox 360, Blu-ray faces its own hurdles in a looming format war with rival Toshiba's HD-DVD. These high-stakes products will hit the market at roughly the same time as "Casino Royale," the first James Bond film that Sony has produced since it led a consortium of investors in a purchase of MGM in 2004. Overseas, "The DA Vinci Code" brought in an additional $154 million. That was the biggest opening ever for a Sony film outside of North America and currently ranks second to "Star Wars: Episode III" for the best overseas box office weekends in Hollywood history.
Perhaps no one understands Sir Howard's thirst for work better than his brother, Rob. He recalled that his older sibling, born in Wales but now an American citizen, once had a plaque in his office quoting the belief of the broadcasting legend Edward R. Murrow that no non-American would ever head CBS News — a job Sir Howard eventually snared. Now he is the first gaijin to run Sony.

Last month Sony bought, rival to YouTube, video-sharing network, Grouper for a reported $65mill.
Sony apparently found Grouper particularly appealing because it operates its own peer-to-peer network and can distribute high-quality downloadable movies. The Sausalito-based company will retain its current management, working closely with a team at Sony Pictures. “When you pair Grouper’s innovative video sharing platform on the web and the desktop with Sony’s connected devices and copyrighted media you create a dynamic and exciting environment for consumers,” said Grouper CEO and co founder Josh Felser. The Wu Thang Clan vs The War in Iraq is a must watch!



Deliver Us From Evil
Lionsgate Doc On Child Abuse

L-R: Composer Mick Harvey; Amy Berg, director of the film, at a protest against sexual abuse last month at the Los Angeles cathedral (AP)

In the documentary, “Deliver Us From Evil,” the former priest, Oliver O’Grady, describes how he abused young boys and girls across central California over 20 years, including a period in the 1980’s when Cardinal Mahony was his superior as the bishop in Stockton's civil case, where a jury awarded $30 million in damages to the brothers in 1998 (an award reduced to $7 million in negotiations).

The film was written and directed by Amy Berg, a former television producer. It features a taped deposition from 1997 stemming from a civil trial in Stockton in which the brothers in the criminal case against Mr. O’Grady brought suit against the local diocese, alleging that its bishops — including Cardinal Mahony — failed to prevent Mr. O’Grady from having contact with children in the face of evidence of his history of abuse.

The documentary, which won first place in the documentary category at the Los Angeles film festival in June, will be publicly released in New York, Los Angeles and Boston this month. The music score is by celebrated arranger, multi-instrumentalist, producer, film soundtrack composer and co-founder of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Mick Harvey

Solid State Logic Multiple Installs Announced And Duality Introduced At AES

l-r: 10-time Grammy winner engineer/mixer/producer, Rafa Sardina at After Hours; engineer/producer John Merchant at the AWS 900 Barry Gibb's personal studio

Los Angeles based ten-time Grammy-winner mixer/engineer Rafa Sarina (above left) has built an eclectic and impressive client list to include: Macy Gray, Stevie Wonder, Dr Dre, Dru Hill, Luis Miguel, Sheryl Crow, Angie Stone and Alejandro Sanz, among others. Last month he added a new SSL AWS 900 to his state-of-the-art studio in Woodland Hills, CA, After Hours where he mixed select tracks for pop mega star Alejandro Sanz.

Months after a Solid State Logic AWS 900 Analogue Workstation System proved indispensable in the creation of Barbra Streisand's hit album Guilty Pleasures, legendary musician and producer Barry Gibb purchased an AWS 900 for his personal studio.

l-r: Pictured at the AWS 900 are Tom Rowlands of the Chemical Brothers (left) and Nick Clarke of Tech Nick Clarke Ltd; Engineer/producer Mark “Spike” Stentwith (Madonna, Björk, Gwen Stefani), reports “amazing” results with his XLogic E Signature; at the Record Plant in Los Angeles at an SSL 9000 J Series console are Tal Herzberg, co-producer and engineer, and Geffen Records chairman Ron Fair.

UK production duo The Chemical Brothers (above left) have chosen to upgrade to the Solid State Logic AWS 900 Analogue Workstation System for their private studio in Sussex, England. “We are really enjoying using the AWS 900,” says Tom Rowlands of the Chemical Brothers. “It's a great desk because it gives us all the features of a high-end console at a reasonable price. Also, importantly for us, it has a small footprint. It’s perfect for musicians and producers who want to get a high-end sound in a private studio. We love the EQ, mic preamps and dynamics, and think the whole feel of the faders and pots are great.”

Interscope Geffen A&M (IGA), home to a multitude of prestigious recording artists, will install a Solid State Logic C200 Digital Production Console in its new studio facility, which will open in 2007. Part of the Universal Music Group, the music industry’s leader in global sales, IGA will use the 48-fader, 216-input C200 to record and mix top artists on a roster that includes Black Eyed Peas, Pussycat Dolls and Mary J. Blige. "We chose the SSL C200 console because of its powerful recall functions, and our ability to switch effortlessly between massive production set-ups in seconds. My production crew and I grew up on SSL consoles," Fair concludes. "All the engineers we work with can't wait to get their hands on the C200-we could sell tickets!" SSL Inc. president Phil Wagner comments, "We are obviously thrilled that UMG/IGA is installing the C200 for Ron Fair and Tal Herzberg. This order represents the most significant commitment to SSL's C200 Digital Production Console to date."

At AES in October, SSL unveiled Duality, a large-format production console that combines the analogue sonics of legendary SSL E, G & K Series consoles. It offers extended Digital Audio Workstation integration capabilities and is the next generation console for those who love analogue but work digital. The console has a unique split channel path that enables channel processing to be placed in the input or monitor path of the workstation. In addition to a SuperAnalogue™ mic amp, each channel features a Variable Harmonic Drive™ input stage designed to add analogue character to soul-less workstation outputs. A 2nd to 3rd harmonic drive control provides a range of tones, from the warmth of 50's tubes to the 'edge' of 70's transistors. Duality offers VCA style or moving fader automation and complete control over DAW parameters from the console channel rotaries. There are multiple stereo busses or multiple 5.1 stems to make the best use of a full set of 5.1 pan/positioning controls on each channel.

R.I.P Tower
1960 - 2006

After almost 30 hours of what attorneys described as "robust" and "vigorous" bidding, Great American won with an offer of $134.3 million, beating Trans World Entertainment, which had hoped to continue operating at least some Tower stores. Great American began the liquidation process and going out of business sales, which eventually will result in the elimination of the jobs of some 3,000 Tower employees.

Back in August Tower filed for Chapter 11 and stated that it has been hurt by an industrywide decline in music sales, downloading of online music and competition from big-box stores such as Wal-Mart. With 89 stores in 20 states the company owes creditors about $200 million.

Russ Solomon founded Tower in Sacramento, Calif., in 1960, starting by selling records out of his father's drug store and eventually opening the company's landmark store on Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard in 1969. He and his family were left with 15 percent interest in the company.

Some would say the end of Tower is another nail in the coffin of the "old mold." Tower stocked everything because it was the only way a customer could get the music. Now if you want everything -- from polka to pop or soundtracks -- you go to the net. With the death of the giant chain stores, also dies a certain culture that most 30 or 40 something year olds remember. Labels treated the managers with the same deference afforded radio PD's; because in those days, a Tower Store could influence the music buyer in the city they were in. Tower stores were not only a place to buy the music, but if friends were looking for a place to meet up

"I remember riding home as fast as I could with that big yellow paper bag and making a bee line to my stereo. Of course as a result, I became totally obsessed with records, ended up buying a ton of them and have been making them ever since. I never considered going to college - Tower Records afforded me the education of a lifetime, " says producer Scott Mathews.

There's gonna be a bunch of pierced and painted kids looking for work about 3000 of them!

The survey also stated 79% of students are currently downloading their music online. But 72%, UP from 65% in spring 2006, are utilizing free P2P networks as opposed to iTunes (iTunes owns 91% of this market.)

The good news is smart artists and managers are getting it! Read Wired (Beck on the cover). Release a traditional 13-track CD? No thanks, says Beck. Instead, he puts out a cycle of songs, remixes, and videos that fans can string together any way they want. Such is the future of the album, as envisioned by Beck; it's something to be heard, seen, and reconstituted by artist and audience alike. As the Beatles did with Sgt. Pepper's almost four decades ago, Beck has expanded the range and potential of the form.

We applaud the recent Wal*mart deal Irving Azoff got the Eagles. Is it selling out or adapting to the times and selling WELL? We think, the latter. 1970, Randy Meisner, Glenn Frey, Bernie Leadon, and Don Henley began their careers by performing back-up to Linda Ronstadt. This experience led to a signing in 1972 with Asylum. The group released the hit album, The Eagles, the same year. In 1999, RIAA created the Diamond award for 10 million in sales. Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 topped that list with 25 million. By November of 2000, Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 had sold an astounding 27 million copies. Hotel California (16 million) and Greatest Hits, Volume II (10 million) would also achieve Diamond status. In 2001, The Eagles became the third best-selling group of all time with 83.5 million in cumulative record sales. Only the Beatles and Led Zeppelin have sold more.
