"A Fabulous Book" This is a great book, the necessary reference for the music of the era. I do a detailed review of this here, but this is a book you don't want to be without it if you are looking to acquire this music in any way.
This is an incredible book! The amount of work, time, research and devotion that went into it strikes me speechless. It's not complete (I know of some things missing) but a work like this can never be complete as new things are always being discovered from the era. Suffice to say, however, that this is the most detailed and complete work of this nature in existence, which is really saying a lot. It's a staggering effort - and a very entertaining one. Mr. Scott is a good writer as well as a researcher/collector, and publishing it through Lulu is a good way of getting it out at a very reasonable cost. Truly a wonderful book!
