Abstract:

"Behind the smiling faces and onstage exuberance, the world of popular music is riddled with infighting, out-of-control egos, and record-company blunders. The Greatest Music Never Sold is an all-access pass behind the scenes of the volatile music industry. This book reveals the secrets of more than a dozen albums by superstars such as Mick Jagger, Seal, Chicago, David Bowie, Prince, Sheryl Crow, and the Beastie Boys legendary recordings that have never seen the light of day." "New interviews with artists, band members, producers, engineers, and label executives boldly go where no book has gone before, unveiling an industry rife with confusion and the insider politics that have buried major works by these popular-music greats." "Dan LeRoy tells the facts and names the names. This is an ultra-rare look into a world seldom seen by music fans, a wild ride through pop and rock that will leave you dazed and wanting more."--BOOK JACKET.
