1,000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die (1,000 Before You Die) by Tom Moon

The musical adventure of a lifetime. The most exciting book on music in years. A book of treasure, a book of discovery, a book to open your ears to new worlds of pleasure. Doing for music what Patricia Schultz--author of the phenomenal 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, with more than 2.6 million copies in print--does for travel, Tom Moon recommends 1,000 recordings guaranteed to give listeners the joy, the mystery, the revelation, the sheer fun of great music.This is a book both broad and deep, drawing from the diverse worlds of classical, jazz, rock, pop, blues, country, folk, musicals, hip-hop, world, opera, soundtracks, and more. Its arranged alphabetically by artist to create the kind of unexpected juxtapositions that break down genre bias and broaden listeners horizons--it makes every listener a seeker, actively pursuing new artists and new sounds, and reconfirming the greatness of the classics. Flanking J.S. Bach and his six entries, for example, are the little-known RandB singer Baby Huey and the 80s Rastafarian hard-core punk bank Bad Brains. Farther down the list: The Band, Samuel Barber, Cecelia Bartoli, Count Basie, and Afropop star Waldemer Bastos. Each entry is passionately written and filled with expert listening notes, fascinating anecdotes, and the occasional perfect quote--Your collection could be filled with nothing but music from Ray Charles, said Tom Waits, and youd have a completely balanced diet. Every entry identifies key tracks, additional works by the artist, and where to go next. And in the back, indexes and playlists for different moods and occasions.
