Leszczak, radio personality and author of the publisher's Who Did It First? presents in this new encyclopedia some 350 name variations for individual performers and bands culled from archival research and interviews. Alphabetically arranged by the name most familiar to readers, entries list aliases, record labels, years active, and hits, along with short overviews of the artists' or bands' careers and discussions of name changes. Photos, primarily of relevant 45s, appear throughout. Entries features mostly pop, rock, and soul performers. . . .Useful historical information nonetheless transcends the trivial nature of the work, and an excellent index increases its value considerably. . . .Summing Up: General readers and professionals/practitioners. * CHOICE * Musician and DJ Leszczak's unique compilation covers 50 years of musicians who have recorded and performed under more than one name. Nearly 400 artists and groups are profiled, including the Beach Boys, Glen Campbell, Jefferson Airplane, Stewart Copeland, and Paul Simon (who has recorded under six names). Entries list the alias(es), record labels, years active, and hit singles, followed by a brief, informal narrative. Coverage skews heavily male and mostly lies in the 1960s and '70s, but the entries are well researched and filled with interesting information. Trivia buffs and pop-music fans will enjoy this book, which belongs in the circulating stacks of most public and academic libraries. * Booklist * Given the frequency with which artists nowadays change their recording names as well as form new groups, author Bob Leszczak is surely to be congratulated for compiling this veritable mine of information covering almost 400 artists active in this period. . . .For anyone, like this reviewer, whose youth was misspent in perusing the pages of the weekly popular music press, such as Record Mirror and New Musical Express, this volume will bring back many memories as well as reveal facts about individual artists of which only the most avid fans were aware at the time. . . .This volume should be of interest to both listeners to such programmes, as well as to those responsible for compiling and presenting the programmes. . . .[T]he volume is a 'must' for any such presenter. . . .[T]his volume is extremely comprehensive. It should be on the shelves of anyone addicted to quizzes and will doubtless aid in resolving many a bet between friends. * s *
