Congratulations to Bob Farr on the publication of his magisterial magnum opus. His scholarship is profound, his knowledge deep, his taste refined and his judgement sound.
He makes it clear that, as with all such mammoth compilations, some controversial choices have been made by Universal but his survey provides a trustworthy guide, indicating both its strengths and weaknesses. This will be a reference document for all true Verdians.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
