Bill Monroe

Review
“Rosenberg and the late Wolfe document every detail of Monroe’s work. The chronological listing of all his recordings is staggering, and though the narrative makes easy reading , this impressive, hard-bound 350-page tome will mainly appeal to those wishing to study blue-grass and its heritage under a college-owned microscope.”–MOJO Dec 2007

Product Description
Spanning over 1,000 separate performances, “The Music of Bill Monroe” presents a complete chronological list of all of Bill Monroe’s commercially released sound and visual recordings. Each chapter begins with a narrative describing Monroe’s life and career at that point, bringing in producers, sidemen, and others as they become part of the story. The narratives read like a “who’s who” of bluegrass, connecting Monroe to the music’s larger history and containing many fascinating stories.
