Library Journal Review

Gr 5-9-Each of these offerings presents a one-page introduction to the popular music of a decade, followed by general overviews of the careers of a dozen musical groups or prominent individuals. Several color or occasionally black-and-white photos are included on each double-page spread, along with a list of the artists' best-known recordings. Each volume concludes with a brief gazetteer that summarizes the musical trends of the decade. Both decades are represented primarily by men. Although there is insufficient material on any one artist for anything other than a very brief report, these attractive entries will be popular for browsing.-Ginny Gustin, Santa Monica Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
