Schirmer Books, 1999 - Rhythm and blues music - 461 pages
The Rockin' '60s is the first complete guide to the great rock and R&B instrumental and vocal groups and solo artists of the day. Each entry gives the complete personnel of each group, with birthplace and date (and date of death, if appropriate), instrument played, and any other significant role (vocals, songwriting, producing) in the group. A complete narrative history of the group is then given, with analysis of key recordings. Finally, a comprehensive discography, listing original releases and recent reissues on CD, makes this the ultimate shoppers' and buyers' guide. Photographs from rock archives enhance the text.
