Overview

Performance and Production (Encyclopedia of Popular Music of the World Series) by John Shepherd

'I did not think the second volume could possibly be as good as the first. I was wrong. So browse, read it through, or just use it as a reference - you will find there is always more to learn. It is a wonderful accomplishment. Anyone who cares about popular music should have this book.' Lawerence Grossberg, Morris Davis Professor of Communication Studies and Cultural Studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Part III: Musical Instruments;
Part IV: Musical Forms and Practice.

Entries include musical examples, bibliographies, discographies and filmographies. An extensive index is also provided.
