“…the bulk of this big book is devoted to biographies of singers, some six hundred of them….Soper writes using an undemanding style and lots of simple but clear maps and schemes. The result is wonderful….The book is illustrated with many copies of programmes, photographs of postcards, and magnificent, clear and big photographs of singers….This big book of 562 pages, most having two columns in clear print, is indeed value.”
