'The Day The Music Burned' - the Universal Music fire

Post by Scary »

Interesting article about the fire that destroyed part of Universal Studios in 2008. It wasn't mentioned at the time but although a lot of the film and TV holdings were lost, approx 500,000 master and studio tapes were destroyed. These contained songs from some of the biggest artists in history going right back to the 1940s
