One of my favourite SCI-FI books from my favourite SCI-FI writer. As always from Pohl the story is really a satire on our society and liberalism. As they say about the rich " they must be on another Planet" Well here thats exactly it. So rich that they can plunder arts and culture at low cost. Enjoy the read !
Good book.
This story revolves aliens who love music and have an arrangement with local people to provide them musical talent. Our main character (now a certified public accountant) was once an amazing baritone who had his musical career cut short by vocal damage from the mumps. After investigating the mysterious disappearance of one of his musical clients, he gets mixed up with and ends up in Aldebaran (Narabedla backwards).

The musical talent they have there is ageless, including Castratos from Mozart's time, 1920's flappers, and real jazz men. Alien medical tech lets one live a very long time, in addition to other miracles. Now that he's made into the stars (as a potential star), will this accountant try and get home (he was kidnapped) to expose what looks like a musical slavery ring at first glance, enjoy the music of ageless masters, organize a revolt, or perform on stage?

A likable space opera type novel of opera in space.
Read this book. I purchased it through a Sci-Fi book club back in the 80's. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it. I would like to see it in electronic version in Kindle or knook!
