During the 1990s Omnibus Press published a series of books under the generic title 'The Complete Guide to the Music Of'...
They were written by experienced rock critics whose brief was not just to be objective about the music but also to offer background information about the circumstances in which the album was recorded.
In the end Omnibus published almost 50 books on artists ranging from Frank Sinatra to The Sex Pistols.
From Elvis Presley's Sun Sessions to Radiohead's OK Computer, here is the very best of rock and pop music of the 20th century.
This is a consumer's critical guide to the music, enabling the reader to select the very best of an artist's repertoire before making a buying decision.
