Another View of Clive Davis

ANOTHER VIEW OF CLIVE: Hot on the heels of this week’s publication of Clive Davis’ massive 600-page tome, Soundtrack of My Life, comes a slim, 100-page companion volume, Clive: Working with the Man in the Age of Vinyl, a compelling memoir penned by one Don Silver, who toiled away for Arista Records as an A&R man at the age of 22 in 1978 fresh out of college. Silver quickly gets disillusioned about his dream job, finding it was more about “turning down aspiring artists than helping them rise to the top.” In the end, Clive is more about Silver than Davis, but it still offers an outsider music fan’s glimpse at the inner workings of a label when the business was still booming.
