Happy birthday to multi-media artist and Talking Heads frontman David Byrne! Today's Collector's Treasure is his remarkable and buoyant celebration of a subject he has spent a lifetime thinking about - How Music Works. In it, he explores how profoundly music is shaped by its time and place, and he explains how the advent of recording technology in the twentieth century forever changed our relationship to playing, performing, and listening to music. Hand-signed on the title page by Byrne. Brand new First Edition McSweeny's hardcover. Authenticity guaranteed for life by Collector's Shangri-La.
