Bedtime Reading - The Rough Guide To Soul And R&b

Recommended Posts

Picked up a new book today - The Rough Guide To Soul and R&B - £15.99 from Borders.

Bugger, then saw it in HMV for £12.99

The spiel on the back cover:

The Rough Guide to Soul and R&B is the definitive guide to the genre's greatest singers, musicians, songwriters and record labels, encapsulating the entire history of soul music from gospel and doo-wop, through funk and disco, to hip-hop and R&B.

Detailed profiles of more than 300 artists, from such legends as Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and Sam Cooke to contemporary stars like Prince, Mary J. Blige and Destiny's Child.

Critical reviews of hundreds of landmark albums, including James Brown's Live At The Apollo, Missy Elliott's Supa Dupa Fly and Marvin Gaye's What's Going On.

Ultimate playlists for key performers and sub-genres so you can download the very best straight to your iPod or MP3 player.

Unforgettable photos from top music photographers and picture libraries, plus classic album covers.

Nighty Night, just off for a little bedtime reading.

You can do better to buy something like all music guide to soul. might not contain as much info but it would include more acts some lesser known and it has more cd/lp reviews then the average biography
