The Encyclopedia of Early American Vocal Groups: 100 Years of Harmony - 1850 to 1950 shows how we went from the minstrel shows of pre-Civil War days, to the classic groups of the turn of the century, to rock and roll. With information on more than 1500 vocal groups and a listing of more than 15,000 recordings by these groups, there is nothing else like it anywhere. Almost 600 pages of information! Groups such as the Andrews Sisters, Ink Spots and Mills Brothers, as well as the lesser-known groups are included. Other features cover technology, sheet music and postcards. Music historian Dr. Charles Horner called it "masterful and comprehensive." Nominated for the 2014 Association for Recorded Sound Collections Awards for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research. Available at harmonysongs.com.

From the Back Cover:


 "The Encyclopedia of Early American Vocal Groups does an excellent job of filling a long-standing void in the history of American vocal harmony--the period before the 1950s. This book provides us with an incredible amount of information about more than 1500 vocal groups--from the legendary to the not-so-well-known--as well as the most complete discography published to date and more than 100 illustrations and sheet-music covers from the period. Serious students of American musical history as well as collectors and music fans will want to add the Encyclopedia to their libraries." -- Terry Stewart, President and CEO, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
