We gave it a C

There are, apparently, an infinite number of people who yearn to make records but only a finite number of record companies that can release them. So any video claiming to teach you how to get signed by a major label should be viewed with lots of skepticism. Surprisingly, How to Get a Record Deal, a series of chats with well-connected A&R guys, producers, managers, and recording artists, has some sound advice (for instance, get a lawyer). And if you’re a stranger to the industry who can overlook the unctuous self-importance and show-biz smarm most of these characters exude, you might even find the tape useful. C
