From Abba to ZZ Top via Oasis, James Brown and Frank Sinatra, The Penguin Encyclopedia of Popular Music has been revised and updated to include a range of new, contemporary entries from the Britpop scene to world music. Featuring songwriters, musicians, record labels and musical styles, it is a mine of information on today's music the world over.
'There has been a desperate need... for a quality reference book on popular music. Covering the huge terrain of "non-classical music this century"... this book goes a long way towards satisfying that need... the entries are well chosen, considered and informative'.
