Summary

For nearly a century, New York's famous "Tin Pan Alley" was the center of popular music publishing in this country--it was where songwriting became a profession, and where songs were made-to-order for the biggest stars. Covering the full history of Tin Pan Alley, from its humble beginnings in the 1860s to its demise following World War II, this is the first resource tool to identify its major publishers, composers, lyricists, singers, dances, and bands. Entries are arranged alphabetically and include names, birth & death dates, brief biographies, and bibliographical listings. This will be an eminently useful reference work for libraries catering to music teachers, students, professors, musicians, writers, and fans of popular song.
