Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Following an historical survey of the Brunswick company and its development up to 1931, these four volumes provide a listing of the company's recordings during the first decade and a half of the label's existence. Because the work is organized chronologically, most users will probably be dependent upon the several indexes that list recordings by artists (in each volume), and in volume four by numerical listings, series, a consolidated index of artists, titles, and publishers. Some of the artists whose original recordings are represented here include Irving Berlin, Howard Dietz, George Gershwin, Harry Warren, and Hoagy Carmichael. The types of work are also diverse, including spoken work, jazz, vocal, choral, blues, classical, children's, and country music. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
