An indispensable resource for those who are passionate about preserving local music. -- Ellie M. Hisama, Professor of Music, Columbia University
Guthrie and Carlson have curated a volume as eclectic as the local music scenes these essays and case studies document. From regional folk music, to punk and metal, to fan culture and folksonomies, this book represents the cutting edge of music preservation. The editors' trans-disciplinary approach makes this volume essential reading, not just for music librarians, but for any scholar or fan of music history. A vital contribution to the discourse of cultural memory. -- Spencer D. C. Keralis, Executive Director, Digital Frontiers
