About the book:

It's true that to produce a book purporting to be a guide to all American music is a huge and overwhelming undertaking, but this state by state approach to the subject makes for a really informative and entertaining read. Not only do you get a breakdown of the history or modern music for each state of the US, but you also get to know how many popular artists came to the fore, what venues they got their big breaks in and where they ended up. There is also detailed information on relevant festivals for each region, as well as useful information about current venues, including what genre music they serve up together with their street address and phone details. If you can't make it to the venue there's even a guide to the local radio stations that will allow you to check out contemporary music culture from your hotel room. If you embark on a music heritage pilgrimage to the US, then this book will be a better companion than your best friend and you'll save on the price of a room! Aside from that it great ammunition to help you win those after-dinner debates about the origins of the Philly sound. --Tony Martin
