Popular Singers of the Twentieth Century : A Bibliography of Biographical Materials, Hardback Book

Popular Singers of the Twentieth Century : A Bibliography of Biographical Materials Hardback

Part of the Music Reference Collection series


This guide to the biographical literature available on popular 20th-century singers covers nearly 1000 artists.

Much of the literature cited is also cross-referenced to major biographical dictionaries, encyclopedias, and relevant periodicals.

Entries not only list known publications associated with popular singers but also incorporate elements of analytical and descriptive bibliography.

The artists included in this volume increasingly cross musical boundaries.

The popular singer category, therefore, encompasses Broadway, Hollywood, cabaret, and operetta performers as well as recording artists. Scholars of popular music and popular music enthusiasts will appreciate the extensive research this work embodies.

Divided among three sections, citations are arranged alphabetically and include information about literature published through 1997.

An appendix of additional artists and an index complete the volume.
