Editorial Reviews

"There is no one to replace Russell Sanjek. His years of dedicated participation and scholarly research in the music industry made his the most well-informed mind in his field. There was virtually nothing lacking in his accumulated knowledge of American popular music. Much of it was first handand the balance acquired through continuous reading and questioning. That he was a Vice President of BMI affords stature and pride to our organization. His death was a great professional and personal loss. His work will take its rightful place on all library shelves and become the definitive sourcefor information in its field. It was a great honor for me to have worked with him for 25 eventful years in which he presented himself always with grace and wit--a legacy which I am proud to share."--Frances W. Preston, President and CEO, Broadcast Music, Incorporated
