THE LONG-AWAITED GREAT ROCK BIBLE by MARTIN C STRONG: UPDATE

Updated: 6 days ago

The publication date has been delayed slightly, but expected in April, 2024. Even more time to pre-order and SAVE £25 OFF THE RRP at The ultimate music companion – The Great Rock Bible – available to pre – Red Planet Books (redplanetmusicbooks.com)


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. It includes various other genres apart from ROCK and thus will appeal to those of varying musical tastes.


It seems like a lot of money, but the cost is roughly equivalent to the cost of three vinyl LPs! It is a must for not only music lovers but reviewers, musical historians, music students, those building or expanding their musical knowledge and collections…!
