THE LONG-AWAITED GREAT ROCK BIBLE by MARTIN C STRONG: DUE FOR PUBLICATION on 28TH MARCH, 2024.


Although the RRP is £100 we are talking here about a 1072-page hardback A4 book that is the most comprehensive, up to date music and reliable history of all the key releases and artists from 1920 to 1976.


Back in 2004, Martin C Strong’s THE GREAT ROCK DISCOGRAPHY 7th edition was described by “Rolling Stone” music critic ROBERT CHRISTGAU as “one of the best rock music encyclopedias” and crime author IAN RANKIN named it as one of his desert island books. DJ JOHN PEEL wrote the foreword.


THE GREAT ROCK BIBLE is the successor to his GREAT ROCK DISCOGRAPHY and has been 10 years in the making, the concept re-envisioned to make it more inclusive and informative. This book will appeal to those of varying musical tastes. It covers ROCK, JAZZ, FOLK, COUNTRY, REGGAE, SKA, BLUES and much more.


It seems like a lot of money, but can any music lover afford to be without this book? And, currently, all for the cost of three vinyl LPs! It is, in my opinion, a must for not only music lovers but reviewers, musical historians, music students, those building or expanding their musical knowledge and collections…the list is endless!


This is one book I am really looking forward to seeing. Martin C Strong has devoted his life to the love of music. Please consider pre-ordering this book and saving some money in the process!
