The Encyclopedia of Popular Music's first edition in 1992 was a landmark in rock publishing. Plaudits came from critics and fans alike. For far too long the world of rock and pop had lacked the benchmark reference work its rich history deserved. Here, at last, was the perfect blend of professional reference skills and a passion for popular music, informative without prejudice or pomposity.
This concise edition of the multi-volume encyclopedia provides - in one single volume - an essential reference book for anyone who has a query about any aspect of twentieth-century popular music, including rock, dance, rap and r&b as well as blues, soul, country and folk.
