The Great Rock Discography

Front Cover
Times Books, 1998 - Music - 949 pages
For an art form that is barely a half-century old, rock and roll has a staggering number of artists, figures, and trivia. M. C. Strong has spent twelve years researching rock's history. The result is this indispensable volume.

The Great Rock Discography offers detailed entries on more than 1,000 artists and bands spanning five decades. From ABBA to Zappa, each entry contains a complete discography with album track listings and Strong's pithy reviews and amusing recommendations. Collectors will be wowed by the sheer comprehensiveness of this volume: the catalog numbers for every album, single, and EP, the highest chart positions attained in the U.S. and the U.K., full band profiles complete with personnel, line-up changes, and solo projects, seventy caricatures of rock legends, and much more.

For less than the price of three CDs, fans can own a fabulous reference tool and a great read. Everyone from casual rock scholars to the most zealous gatherers of music trivia will crave this essential volume, now in its fourth revised and updated edition.
