'Not really the sort of book that can be absorbed in one sitting - it's one you'll continue dipping into for months to come. It's difficult to check the accuracy of the book because most of the information is so damned obscure I have no way of checking it. However, the obsessive research of Hugh and Vernon is such that I believe almost every word they say.' (Music Collector)
'Welcome improvements have been made since the first volume, entries are fuller and more authoritative...the scope is vast and the areas' output is microscopically examined. Well worth waiting for' (Bucketfull Of Brains)
