Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Contains a brief biography and comprehensive discographies and bibliographies pertaining to the popular American singer and composer. As King's songs have been widely recorded by other artists, a "composition discography" of these recordings is included, in addition to listings of her own recordings. A "discography bibliography" lists reviews of King's recordings, while a general bibliography refers to other books and articles. The work is impressive in its thoroughness and respect for its subject. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
