Mike's Pix Rhythm and Blues 78's (courtesy of Mike Kredinac) - Section 2


I would recommend to those interested in RnB to obtain the Galen Gart books, his American Record Label Directory and Dating Guide, 1940-1959 is essential. Some sites related to RnB, discographical & music books are listed below after a number of enquiries from users, who I am not able to email for various reasons?

http://www.amazon.com - Just search on the topic and there will be an abundance of books to choose from :-)
http://www.78rpm.com - Kurt Nauck site with numerous reference/music books.
http://www.arbooks.com - A & R Booksearch site (UK) large catalogue of books.
http://www.jazzrecords.com/jazzbooks/ - Norbert Ruecker Books & Videos
