The book is entirely free as I figured that a properly printed version would be to expensive to produce (for now at least). Feel free to print it yourself (which is recommended, I don't like reading book on the computer myself) and enjoy!
Any kind of feedback is highly appreciated. Really: any. Send an e-mail to the editor directly, leave a note on the blog or write something in the guestbook on the website. Any feedback is appreciated: what did you like, what not and what is missing or can be improved.
And most importantly: help me decide how to continue the project - shall I put out the other chapters as soon as possible (but incomplete) and improve over time, or shall we do it thoroughly but slowly with one chapter a time, but with a level of detail like the ones you're about to download...
And of course: feel free to contribute. Missing information, pictures or (for bands and labels)material to listen and write.
