Ta-Ra-Ra-Boom-De-Ay (2014) takes its title from a late nineteenth-century vaudeville song and explores how the music industry has evolved and adapted to various changes and inventions that have continuously revolutionized what we listen to and how we listen to it.
Simon Napier-Bell has a long and storied career in the music industry as a producer, the manager of the Yardbirds and cowriter of Dusty Springfield’s hit, “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me.” As an author, he’s also written the books Black Vinyl, White Powder and I’m Coming Down to Take You to Lunch.
