The book also offers a timechart of early sound recording and radio transcriptions. Never before published photos and a thorough discography including 78 and 45 rpm records, transcriptions, LPs, CDs, and DVDs make this an important reference tool for fans of Fats Waller, jazz music, stride piano, black social history, and broadcast history."--Jacket."@en ;
