This guide to the biographical literature available on popular
20th-century singers covers nearly 1000 artists. Much of the
literature cited is also cross-referenced to major biographical
dictionaries, encyclopedias, and relevant periodicals. Entries not
only list known publications associated with popular singers but
also incorporate elements of analytical and descriptive
bibliography. The artists included in this volume increasingly
cross musical boundaries. The popular singer category, therefore,
encompasses Broadway, Hollywood, cabaret, and operetta performers
as well as recording artists.
Scholars of popular music and popular music enthusiasts will
appreciate the extensive research this work embodies. Divided among
three sections, citations are arranged alphabetically and include
information about literature published through 1997. An appendix of
additional artists and an index complete the volume.
