This thoroughly revised new edition includes more than 1,200 A-Z entries covering nine decades of history and artistry, from the Carter Family recordings of the 1920s to the reign of Taylor Swift in the first decade of the twenty-first century. Compiled by a team of experts at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the encyclopedia has been brought completely up-to-date, with new entries on the artists who have profoundly influenced country music in recent years, such as the Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban. The new edition also explores the latest and most critical trends within the industry, shedding light on such topics as the digital revolution, the shifting politics of country music, and the impact of American Idol (reflected in the stardom of Carrie Underwood). Other essays cover the literature of country music, the importance of Nashville as a music center, and the colorful outfits that have long been a staple of the genre
The Bob Dylan encyclopedia by Michael Gray( Book )

24 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bob Dylan Encyclopedia is one of the most wide-ranging, informed, entertaining, provocative, and compulsively readable books ever written about popular music. It's the culmination of over thirty years of dedicated research and scholarship by Michael Gray. Inside these pages, you'll find a world of ideas, facts, and opinions. It's a world in which Baudelaire flows on from the Basement Tapes and A.S. Byatt looks out at the Byrds; in which Far from the Madding Crowd follows Ezekiel and Bob Geldof introduces Jean Genet; and in which Hank and William Carlos Williams stand side by side while J.R.R. Tolkien trails the Titanic. Most of all, of course, it's a world in which everyone and everything interconnects, in endlessly fascinating ways, with one of our greatest living artists: Bob Dylan."--Publisher's website

First photographs : William Henry Fox Talbot and the birth of photography by William Henry Fox Talbot( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First Photographs is an eyewitness to the origins of modern photography. This book - the only monograph on Talbot to be supported by the curator of the Fox Talbot Museum - includes many never-before-published images of landscapes, architectural studies, and portraiture from Talbot's personal archive and selections from his detailed research notebooks made during the 1830s and 1840s, currently housed at the Fox Talbot Museum at Lacock Abbey in Chippenham, England." "In addition to his technological contributions, Talbot's own photographs represent exceptional and prescient artistic achievement. Arthur Ollman, director of the Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego, contributes an innovative analysis of both the aesthetic and social significance of Talbot's first photographic image, the "Oriel Window," through a remarkable evocation of Talbot's late-life reflection one sunny afternoon beneath his window in Lacock Abbey. Curator Carol McCusker considers how the women of the Lacock household influenced Talbot's aesthetic choices. First Photographs also includes a biography and timeline of Talbot's eventful life and revolutionary work by the preeminent Talbot scholar Michael Gray."--Jacket
