Riassunto: This follow-up set to "American Song," Vols. 1 and 2 explores the work of major pop songwriters from "Tin Pan Alley" not included either in a Broadway show or film from the period 1880 to today. This carefully researched encyclopedia covers 125 composers with hundreds of entries on each. Entries include composer, lyricist and publisher information. From 1880 to present, here are some of the composers covered: Lee Adams Harold Arlen Burt Bacharach Irving Berlin Eubie Blake Ralph Blane Lew Brown Johnny Burke Sammy Cahn Hoagy Carmichael Sidney Clare Betty Comden Hal David Eddie DeLange Howard Dietz Ervin Drake Sammy Fain Dorothy Fields George Gershwin Mack Gordon Oscar Hammerstein II Lorenz Hart Edward Heyman James P. Johnson Irving Kahal Jerome Kern Jimmy McHugh Cole Porter Andy Razaf Billy Rose Jean Schwartz Harry B. Smith Stephen Sondheim Roy Turk James Van Heusen Harry Von Tilzer And many others

From Booklist: In the first two volumes of American Song (Schirmer, 1996), Bloom covered the musical theater. More than 4,800 shows (e.g., Oklahoma!) were arranged alphabetically by title, with information about song titles and writing, production, and cast credits. Volume 2 indexed those entries. Here he covers the people and popular songs of Tin Pan Alley in the broadest sense of that term, for the time period from 1880 to the late twentieth century.

Following a short introduction in volume 3, entries for 164 composers and lyricists (e.g., Dorothy Fields, Henry Mancini, Johnny Mercer) are arranged alphabetically by last name. A brief paragraph provides such facts as birthplace, dates of birth and death, education, career directions, names of collaborators, and "standard" songs--those that are best known. To save needless repetition of credits, there is often a note preceding the song section for those writers who were regular collaborators. For instance, the entry for Lorenz Hart notes: "all music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Lorenz Hart unless indicated otherwise." Chronological listings of song titles are divided into separate categories for pop songs and show songs (including stage and film productions). Collaborators' names, if any, are noted next to the song or show title.

Volume 4 contains three indexes. Writers who did not get their own entries but are listed alongside credits in volume 3 are listed in the collaborator index. The song index lists every title alphabetically, with a reference to the writer's name and year the song was written. According to the introduction, more than 54,000 song titles (not counting different songs with the same name) are included. The chronological index, arranged by year, lists every song title for that year in alphabetical order, with a reference to the songwriter.

Although American Song is the most comprehensive source for data on songs from the musical theater and Tin Pan Alley, it does not cover many other popular music genres, such as jazz, swing, R & B, country, rock, and folk. Libraries should have Lissauer's Encyclopedia of Popular Music in America: 1888 to the Present (Paragon, 1991) on hand to answer questions about any of the 19,000 most popular songs it includes from all these genres. Bloom's American Song, with its massive quantities of data within a more limited scope, is a major reference work that will be a standard in any music collection. Libraries with the first two volumes will certainly want to complete their set. RBB
