A century of song in one indispensable collection.
Follow the rhythms of the century with this extraordinary selection of enduring 100 hits. From the turn of the century's elegant melodies to the reckless, syncopated music of the roaring twenties; from sophisticated show songs and movie hits of the 1930s to the jaunty swing numbers of the Big Bands' heyday; from Elvis to the protest songs of Bob Dylan and the advent of the Beatles and on to bands like Oasis; from ragtime to rock'n'roll to reggae, and beyond.
Each song is illustrated with images culled from the world's top photographic archives, and each is enhanced with musical and historical background notes.
Medium size edition.
