Abstract:

"A must for music-lovers, this is the only reference book to include all Scots-born or bred bands, solo artists and record labels. From Glasgow-born skiffle king Lonnie Donegan in the 50s to the emergence of Travis in the late 90s, Scotland has produced some memorable music in the last half-century. Including Belle and Sebastian, Lulu, Billy Connolly, Jimmy Shand, George Chisholm, Aly Bain and Evelyn Glennie, this guide is the first to combine rock, pop, folk, traditional, jazz and classical music in one volume." "Martin Strong guides you through a plethora of facts and figures with his trademark acidic patter and caustic wit, while Stuart Murray's quirky caricatures complement the text perfectly. Over 700 Scottish artists grace these pages. The inclusion of some names, such as David Byrne and Mark Knopfler, may come as a surprise, but the former Talking Head and the leader of Dire Straits were born in Dumbarton and Glasgow respectively." "Packed full of information - biographies, discographies, track listings, group line-ups and UK/US chart positions - this coffee-table breaker proves that Scotland is, and has been for some time, alive with the sound of music."--Jacket.
