Review:

"This is an extraordinary achievement and it will become an absolutely vital and trusted resource for everyone working in the field of popular music studies. Even more broadly, anyone interested in popular music or popular culture more generally will enjoy - and find many uses for - the wealth of information and insight captured in this volume." — Lawrence Grossberg, Morris Davis Professor of Communication Studies and Cultural Studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
"These first two volumes (of a projected 12) portend great things for the set. Among the 250 contributors are most of the leading scholars, musicians, and journalists in popular music studies. Nearly 20 years in the making, the encyclopedia responds to a need for a comprehensive approach to popular music, one that would give due attention to non-Anglo-American musics. To that end, much thought was devoted to the taxonomy and layout of each volume. Rather than simply listing entries alphabetically, each volume presents broad topics in some detail, with indexes in each volume to bring subjects together. An important...addition to the canon of popular music studies. Highly recommended." -Choice (CHOICE)
