This might've been the 1st music bk I read. I actually remember the 1st one as being a music THEORY bk published by Penguin & NOT a music HISTORY one but this is the closest one that I can find in my library so either it was this one or I don't have the one I actually read anymore. At any rate, much of my basic music knowledge came from reading this (or the other?) bk so it's important to me. Always did have a soft spot for Penguin. They've published alotof great stuff & they had a warehouse a coupla thousand feet away from where I grew up so Penguin bks were plentiful. Too bad they moved away when they merged w/ Viking!
