• 100+ of the best albums by women, as chosen by musicians, DJs, producers, journalists, radio hosts and music industry insiders• Contributors include Nina Kraviz (DJ), Nick Mason (Pink Floyd), KT Tunstall (musician), Jamie XX (The XX, DJ), Black Madonna (DJ), Rankin (photographer), John Grant (musician) and Peter Hook (Joy Division, New Order, Peter Hook & The Light), on albums by Billie Holiday, Kate Bush, Madonna, Joni Mitchell, Patti Smith, PJ Harvey, Nina Simone and many more• An overdue celebration of women's significant and compelling contributions to musicAcross the genres, across the generations, across the board, this book presents over one hundred inspirational albums by women, from top-selling hits to the indie and obscure.
