Project #16425 - Essay Prompt

General Info on Homework Assignments

These writing assignments are essays, not papers with definite right and wrong answers.  You will be given a prompt followed by several points I'd like you to address.  An essay will always contain the opinion of the author, but opinion by itself is not enough.  You need to back up your opinion with relevant facts and information that supports the position you are taking.  You’ll need to do some research for this. How well you support your position with facts and logic will determine your scores for these assignments.  If you cannot adequately support your opinion on your own, do some research and find a quote or some factual information to help you make your point.  That’s how essay writing works!

You may choose to do research either online or in the music library or use online sources.   If you make a direct quote from a source you must follow proper procedure giving credit to the original source (MLA, APA. style, etc.).  I do not require a bibliography or works cited page with these essays if you do not use a direct quote from one of your sources.   These essays should be 3 pages in length.  If you find you need more length you are probably over-doing the background info, if you need less you are definitely missing something.

 

Homework #3 Essay Prompt

 

Take a good close look at this page from the Columbia Records Marketing guide of 1966.  This was given to Columbia Records' sales staff, the guys who would go call on records stores, etc., to try for more/better exposure for Columbia's artists.  Look at the different things they thought might help sell more Bob Dylan albums. 

 

Everyone has the right, of course, to do what they want, and to do whatever they can to promote their product (in this case a human being called Bob Dylan).  The question really is what do youthink they ‘should’ do? 

How much is too much of this kind of marketing? 

Do you believe that there is a point where the art is harmed by this kind of marketing and if so, where is that point?  Does this cross the line?

Seeing something like this also raises the question of just how much of Bob Dylan’s success was due to his talent and how much was due to good, clever marketing?  Do you see anything here that indicates that Columbia records really thought Dylan was a great songwriter or an important artist? 

Do you suppose Bob Dylan knew this type of marketing was being used to sell his music and if he was aware of it, what does that say about his own belief in the artistic value of his music (product?)?

 

 

I need an expert who can answers all questions above in 3 pages and provides reasons to all questions.

 

 

please dont bid if you are not familiar with these type of questions !!
