(Book). It's been 10 years since Confessions of a Record Producer published real-life numbers showing what artists made on so-called "hit records" and how producers, labels, managers, and even the artists' own lawyers conspire to cheat them out of royalties.

In a special 10th Anniversary Edition, author Moses Avalon, one of the industry's most sought-after consultants and artist's rights gurus, has updates on all of the old shams and many new ones created by the internet and the ongoing transformation of the music industry. * Detailed numbers on how new royalties from digital downloads are calculated, collected, and manipulated. * Deep inside the new so-called "360 Deals" offered by the major labels. Groundbreaking charts and graphs show industry consolidation, who owns what, and where the future of the music business is headed.
