This ``annotated subject guide'' emphasizes recent books, which here includes all music and dance titles found in Public Library Catalog since 1983 plus selected titles from nine other music bibliographies. Criteria for inclusion in this first edition are not clear, and the classification scheme is unique (thus, Sounds of Music is found under ``General Topics'' and not with similar titles under ``Acoustics''). Within categories, book are listed alphabetically by title, yet there is no author indexand no title index either. Many entries lack publisher or date or both. Annotations are sometimes helpful, sometimes superfluous, and often lacking. For books reviewed in 1985 and 1986, only ``favorable'' notices are cited; were there no poor reviews? Underedited, overpriced, and not recommended. Bonnie Jo Dopp, District of Columbia P.L.
