In the back of the book Joel Whitburn has a section on The Record Holders, which has over a dozen lists that cover The Top 100 Artists of the Rock Era and an Indez to Albums of Longevity. If you want to know who has had the most number one albums (the Beatles), the most Top 10 albums (Frank Sinatra), or the album that has spent the most time at #1 ("West Side Story" soundtrack), then this is the book for you. For each album you get the date the album debuted in the Top 40, the album's highest charted position (with ow many total weeks the album held the No. 1 and No. 2 positions in parentheses), total weeks charted in the Top 40, and the original album label and number. There are brief descriptions of each group, including members, type of music they played, and other information of note. Basically this should let you know if this reference book would be of interest or help to you.
