For the past 35 years, Rust's American Dance Band Discography has been the go-to authority for US dance band collectors. But like any discography that covers such a wide range of material, ADBD contained a host of errors and omissions. Johnson and Shirley's new work addresses these issues on a grand scale. Over twice the size of Rust's set, this discography contains vastly improved listings for commercial recordings, plus new entries for theater-use discs, radio transcriptions, recorded live performances, broadcasts and movie soundtracks. All known Canadian dance band recordings are included as well. Errors and omissions remain, but this is still a magnificent achievement!
