Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In 1972, the author began his documentation of the output of A&M Records as a labor of love; two hefty volumes result from his activity nearly three decades later. Volume one chronicles music, video, memorabilia, and publishing information in connection with A&M Records and affiliates in the United States; volume two does the same for A&M Records' affiliates around the world. Arrangement of the first is in sections on albums, singles, films and videos, and affiliated labels, along with a section on artist bibliographies and a section for collectors. Indexing is by label, artist, and title. The second volume is arranged by country and is also thoroughly indexed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
