According to Wikipedia:
In 1990 there were six major record labels [WEA, EMI, CBS Records, BMG Music, Universal Music Group, Polygram].
In 2000 there were five major record labels [Warner Music Group, EMI, Sony Music Group, BMG Music, Universal Music Group]
In 2010 there were four major record labels [Warner Music Group, Sony Music Ent., EMI, Universal Music Group].
Do you see a trend here? That is why this book is not a “How to get a record deal” book. I think there are enough books written about the music industry, so I did not want to give an opinion about how to make it in the music industry. I want this book to serve as a mirror to anyone that reads it. I believe if you take the information in this book and use it to look at yourself and the things you are trying to accomplish, along with taking action, you will become that successful artist and producer.
