A musical master, but the music ain't happening...
Reviewed in the United States on December 27, 2016
Great subject about a musical master. Should be required material for any new bass player. Entertaining format (more like reading a magazine) with oodles of photos, thorough history, and insight into this bass playing giant. This issue, and reason for the low review, is about the audio CDs. I was shocked to discover that during the binding process, the CDs were literally glued into the binding. They broke immediately when I tried to extract them--and I know a bit about book binding so even precise care in the process was met w/ frustration. So, kudos for a good book but BOO for letting me down on the experience of soaking it up & listening along. For what it's worth, I did an online chat with an Amazon "helper" who claimed he'd credit the account "within a couple of hours"...that was 2 weeks ago and still no credit onto any account that I can find. This is actually my first bad experience with an Amazon order, too bad it's on something that had me doing a happy dance when it initially arrived.
