Released in 1978 as a bicentennial tribute, the Anthology documents the diversity and heterogeneity which was, and is, the music of America. The Index classifies this recorded and printed material in a variety of ways. A complete guide to the contents of each album appears in the Master Index. The remaining indices, the Index to Recorded Material, the Index to Printed Material, the Index to Genres and Performing Media, and the Chronological Index, refer the user back to the Master Index. This Valuable Index is indispensable to any owner of the New World Records as well as to the scholar, librarian, student, and lover of music who has access to the collection.Davis, Elizabeth A. is the author of 'Index to the New World Recorded Anthology of American Music A User's Guide to the Initial 100 Records' with ISBN 9780393951721 and ISBN 0393951723.
