This long-overdue revision of a classic in popular music reference ( LJ 12/15/74) contains nearly 500 entries. Focusing on mainstream pop and rock musicians and groups, with a much less representative sampling of soul, new wave, and punk, the lengthy entries feature significant background, recording, and critical information. The revision complements rather than replaces the first edition, which should not be withdrawn from circulation; definitions of musical terms and rock vernacular have been dropped as, unfortunately, have been numerous listings for groups and individual recording artists. More intensive though less inclusive than The Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll ( LJ 12/1/83), this book belongs on the reference shelf of every library, and those with more liberal budgets should also consider adding a circulating copy.
