  About The Book

From the most innovative and fascinating record producer of our time comes a riveting look behind the scenes of the music business including detailed reminiscences about the making of many world-changing albums.

Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Bob Dylan, Elton John, Billy Joel, Dionne Warwick, Ray Charles, Paul Simon, Quincy Jones, Karen Carpenter, Liza Minnelli, Rod Stewart, Luciano Pavarotti not to mention Jamie Cullum, The Backstreet Boys, and Bono -- have all had hits produced by Phil Ramone. One of the century's most influential and innovative music technicians, Ramone won the first of thirteen Grammy awards for Stan Getz's Getz/Gilberto in 1969 and his most recent for Tony Bennett's The Art of Romance in 2006. In his first book, he walks the reader through every step of the recording process and along the way, he reveals intimate details about the studio sessions that gave us some of the most legendary songs our our time, including "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard" by Paul Simon, Dylan's entire Blood on the Tracks album, and Billy Joel's "Just the Way You Are."
