1. Rick Rubin In the Studio (Large Print 16pt) - Jake Brown

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

There is no greater enigma than Rick Rubin working in record production today. As mysterious personally as the Buddhist religion he practices, Rubin has made one thing crystal clear: the records he produces are sonically and stylistically beyond reproach. MTV has called Rubin ''the most important producer of the last 20 years,'' while Rolling Stone ventured even further, deeming Rubin the most successful ''of any genre.'' Without a niche, Rubin has taken greater risks than any producer in the record industry over the past quarter century. Pushing his artists into new territory has garnered Rubin seven Grammys, including Producer of the Year in 2007, and made him the most in - demand record producer working today. Now for the first time, Rick Rubin: In the Studio offers the behind - the - scenes stories of how Rubin created hit albums with such diverse legends as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Run DMC, Johnny Cash, the Beastie Boys, Audioslave, Tom Petty, Metallica, Danzig, Slayer, LL Cool J, The Cult, Weezer, the Dixie Chicks, Linkin Park, System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine, Jay Z, Neil Diamond, Sheryl Crow, and Slipknot. This book chronicles his meteoric rise, from his early days as DJ Double R in the early '80s, founding and running Def Jam Records alongside Russell Simmons from an NYU dorm room, discovering and producing the Beastie Boys and LL Cool J, to his transition in the early '90s into a successful independent record executive, signing and producing the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Johnny Cash, to his role as the most influential producer of all time (currently as the co - head of Columbia Records), and his continued successes with rock/metal supergroups Audioslave, Linkin Park, and Metallica. This in - depth look at the life and times of Rick Rubin - in the studio and beyond - is a must - have for any music fan.

2. Tori Amos In the Studio (Large Print 16pt) - Jake Brown

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Featuring exclusive interviews with people who worked alongside Tori Amos in the studio - one of her producers, sound engineers, and backing band members - as well as in - depth research into the singer herself, Tori Amos: In the Studio explores this groundbreaking artist's career album by album. From a child prodigy pianist to her first band, her breakthrough album as a solo artist to her prolific years of recording and touring, Tori Amos has refused to play by the rules of the recording industry and instead fearlessly forged her own path and musical identity.
Amos achieved note early in her career by being one of the few alternative rock performers to use a piano for a primary instrument. Known for her emotionally intense songs that cover a wide range of subjects including sexuality, religion, and personal tragedy, Amos has sold over 12 million albums worldwide, and seven of her studio albums have debuted in the top ten on Billboard's Top 200 chart. In this book, Jake Brown goes behind the music to reveal Tori Amos's artistic process of creating 11 studio albums - from Little Earthquakes to Midwinter Graces - beloved by her devoted fan base and praised by music critics.
This is the third title in ECW's In the Studio series by music journalist Jake Brown. Other subjects of the series include Heart and producer Rick Rubin.
