COLUMBIA RECORDS will celebrate its 125th anniversary with the release of the book, "360 Sound: The COLUMBIA RECORDS Story." Written by PULITZER PRIZE- and GRAMMY-nominated author and historian SEAN WILENTZ, the book provides a journey through COLUMBIA RECORDS' storied past and its contributions to entertainment from the invention of commercial recording through the present day.
Simultaneously, COLUMBIA RECORDS will release a deluxe package, which combines a hard cover copy of the WILENTZ book with a separate book written by DAVE MARSH, entitled "360 Sound: The COLUMBIA RECORDS Story: Legends and Legacy." MARSH analyzed COLUMBIA's collection of 263 songs and tracks for the greatest historical, as well as musical, significance. The package also includes a drive with all 263 recordings.
"360 Sound: The COLUMBIA RECORDS Story," published by CHRONICLE BOOKS, will be released on OCTOBER 30th. It will also be available as an e-book through multiple platforms.
