A colleague and I are interested in any suggestions as to good introductory
books on ethnomusicology that come with a tape of music, i.e., that can form
the basis (or the essentials) of theory, ethnographic discussion, and
representative music from around the world (the colleague, by the way, is
not an anthropologist, but someone in the school of music).

Again, what we are really interested in are intro books that focus not on a
single culture, but instead give an overview of the field, methods, theories,
and introduce students to the range of world musical traditions.

But, any suggestions along with way would be great.

(Oh, the inclusion of actual recordings is very important!)
