"The publication of articles and books on music and microcomputers has increased greatly in recent years, and it is therefore not surprising that three bibliographies on this subject have been issued during the past two years. In 1988 Deta Davis brought out her comprehensive Computer Applications in Music, and Craig Lister published his more selective The Musical Microcomputer (CH, Jan '89), and last year witnessed the appearance of Waters's volume, which effectively complements Davis's and Lister's bibliographies. Waters (Pensacola Junior College) has designed his compilation for the practicing musician and music educator, and the selection is limited primarily to articles and books printed between 1983 and 1989. However, more than 1,300 succinctly annotated sources are included. Waters's organizational plan is carefully thought out, with articles on specific computers (e.g., Commodore, IBM, Macintosh) being given the major share of the attention. In fact, most library users will find Waters's bibliography of more immediate practical use than those of Davis and Lister, which are geared more to researchers. Although libraries with large budgets should acquire all of these bibliographies, those with limited financial resources would be best advised to give preference to Waters's compilation. Recommended for both academic and public libraries." -- Choice
