Overview

Duxbury attempts to document the connections between the rock and classical music genres by listing recorded examples of rock instrumentals and songs that borrow from the classics, and orchestral versions of songs originally composed and/or recorded by rock musicians. . . . There are appendices of 'selective' lists: big-band versions of the classics, etc. The general index includes the names of classical composers, rock groups and artists, orchestras, choruses, conductors, producers, and song titles. . . . The selective nature of the work might make it less appropriate for scholars, but it will interest and amuse fans and general readers. Recommended for collections specializing in popular music.
