'I did not think the second volume could possibly be as good as the first. I was wrong. So browse, read it through, or just use it as a reference - you will find there is always more to learn. It is a wonderful accomplishment. Anyone who cares about popular music should have this book.' Lawerence Grossberg, Morris Davis Professor of Communication Studies and Cultural Studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
