Synopsis: This is the bible for all popular music fans. With its unique format, featuring complete discographies, biographies and histories - plus catalogue ordering numbers, chart positions and recommended listening ...The Great Rock Discography crams in all the facts and figures you'll need - and gives informative and opinionated pieces on recommended listening and band histories. From the Stone Roses to the Rolling Stones, Steeleye Span to Steely Dan, ABBA and AC/DC, The Popes and The Pogues, Green on Red and Deacon Blue, Heaven 17 to Richard Hell, Buffalo Tom to the Cowboy Junkies - The Great Rock Discography has everyone you need to know about (and many that you'll never have heard of).

Review: It took Strong 10 years to compile this discography, and the rock music world is in his debt. More accurate and comprehensive than other books attempting to accomplish the same ends, more readable and better organized, The Great Rock Discography title may toot its own horn, while Strong calls his opus "the ultimate rock book of all time," but it's entirely merited.

It starts at A with ABBA and spends over a page on them (and these are rather large pages, with very small print), describing the history of the band and their albums, then compulsively listing their every recorded musical output from October '73 until October '96, including a jungle of code notations (you can refer back to the formats-and-abbreviations page whenever needed) with catalog number and recording label, whether the A- or B-sides differ in their U.K. and U.S. versions, which are essential to your collection, and whether the vinyl was a long player, a double-long player, a colored long player, or a mini-long player. Covering Adam & the Ants, Bootsy's Rubber Band, Tom Petty, Linda Rondstadt, and Muddy Waters on up through the Zombies and ZZ Top, Strong lists every track by more than 1,000 groups. --Stephanie Gold
