Editorial Reviews


“Brimming over with vital stuff.”

London Metro, 10/08
“Something you can sink your teeth into.”

Nashville City Paper, October 2008
“always a treat and a delight…this year’s edition proves no different, and the scope, variety and quality are quite impressive.”

“I look forward to this anthology every year, and it never disappoints!”

Brick Weekly, 1/22/09
“There’s some pretty sharp stuff in here done by some real worldly cats. The entire book’s a joy to read.”

St. Joe Channel
“The latest edition in the fine series is a solid anthology made up of articles that discuss a wide range of topics and genres within the subject of music…There are many hits in this three hundred and twenty-seven pages of articles…Yet another good edition in a quality series.”

“Always worthwhile.”

I've just begun to read it. This is for a college course. Interesting points of view. I'll write more later once I I read it fully. :)
