AllMusic was launched as All Music Guide in 1990 by musician Michael Erlewine. The first All Music Guide was a 1200 page reference book, packaged with a CD-ROM, which was published in 1991. Erlewine's goal was to create an open access database that included every recording "since Enrico Caruso gave the industry its first big boost." The first digital iteration of the All Music Guide was available as a Gopher site.
The AMG consumer web properties[clarification needed] AllMusic.com, AllMovie.com and AllGame.com were sold by Rovi in July 2013 to All Media Network, LLC. All Media Network, LLC was formed by the original founders of SideReel.com and Ackrell Capital.
