The Ptich:

What happens when you take the unauthorized diary of the recording session that shook the music industry, and have it performed by the industry itself? You get one of the most entertaining audiobooks on the market.

With 1930s radio and Firesign Theatre in mind, Producer Aardvark and Mixerman set forth to create a full unabridged dramatization of this popular story. Complete with music, musical character motifs (ala Peter and the Wolf), foley, sound effects, and performances by some of the most well known and admired producers and mixers in the business, including: Ken Scott (The Beatles), Dave Pensado (Christina Aguillerra), Ed Cherney (Better Midler), Ron Saint Germain (U2), Jeff Lorber (Dave Koz), Joe McGrath (AFI), Dylan Dresdow (Black-Eyed Peas), William Wittman (Cyndi Lauper), Kenny Gioia (Daryl Hall & John Oates) Julian Bunetta (Hillary Duff), JP Plunier (Ben Harper), and Bob Ohllsson (Jackson 5); the two record-makers deliver an astoundingly entertaining product that is sure to provide listeners with hours of pure unadulterated enjoyment.In other words, this is not your father's audiobook. It's your great grandfathers! With a modern spin, of course.

    " This is one of those books that sneaks up on you. I started reading it online, but eventually bought the book and finished it within a few hours. Besides being very funny, I learned a lot about the recording industry. I just wonder whatever became of Lance . . . . "

    " I spent hours reading this online, so of course I had to get the book. Re-reading it was still fascinating, but dulled somehow. Still worth reading once. "
