As a life long fan of this music and having lived through a good part of its creation, this book is beyond worth to me. I felt the the untimely death of Mr. Warner whom I had never met and knew nothing about as if I had lost a friend. If you want to know more about the fascinating story of this neglected art form, this book and the writings of Marv Goldberg.

It is very well researched and accurate,with many great photos included. I highly recommend it for any music lover-you will love it!

This book is unique in that It's an extremely informative and interesting history of our American vocal group music. Anyone who is the least bit curious as how American vocal groups evolved over the decades would be fascinated. It is an encyclopedia of the genre. If one has a favorite singing group (not bands) there's a good chance that their history is included. Being a tremendous fan and appreciator of vocal groups led me to this book. I have used it as a reference guide and have become quite educated about the history of my favorite groups of which I have many. I've been buying group harmony records since the fifties and have always been fascinated about the origins of the groups on those records and of the prior decade that led up to that (the forties). Obviously, I recommend it highly to people like myself who have cherished the songs and the groups that sang them. I acquired the first edition years ago (read it from cover to cover) and was very upset that I misplaced it...I got tired of looking for it so I just bought it again and am very happy that I did. Thanks Jay Warner!!

Very late review... I bought this for my husband for Christmas. He has a jukebox filled with 45s mostly from the 50s, and he changes records every 3 months. He has read everything in this book and enjoyed it immensely. He said that the author really did his research on all the artists. It was the best book I ever bought him.

Great Reference. Very interesting facts on the various singing groups, especially the early rock and roll.
He is a 'oldies' guy, he wrote me and told me I was the best book picker ever! He liked the infor about the group histories not commonly known.
