This article analyzes the book "The Saturday Review Home Book of Recorded Music and Sound Reproduction," edited by Irving Kolodin. The body of the book is not concerned with music at all, but with the technical aspects of sound reproduction. The last section of the book is a piece by Kolodin called "Learning to Listen and Listening to Learn," and advises the listener how to choose one recorded performance in preference to another. Assuming that the reader has no taste of his own, Kolodin, has appended a lists of recommended recordings which should confuse even the most ingenuous listener, and which should be cares fully avoided by all.
