  USC Libraries :: Music Library   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Although the USC School of Music began in 1884 and there was mention of a music library in the School of Music bulletin in 1894, there was actually no Music Library until 1952, and no music librarian until 1954.
The Music Library originally was housed in a second floor annex to Widney Hall and Miss Joan Meggett became the music librarian.
The Music Library moved in 1982 to a larger space in Doheny Library and in 1999 it moved to a temporary space in the basement of Waite Phillips Hall during the seismic renovation of Doheny Library.

 VH1.com : Roxy Music : Biography
While Roxy Music had become a sensation in England and Europe due to their clever amalgamation of high and kitsch culture, they had trouble getting a foothold in the United States.
Both Roxy Music and the group's second album, 1973's For Your Pleasure, which was recorded with bassist John Porter, were greeted with enthusiasm in the U.K., but virtually ignored in the U.S. Frustrated with Ferry's refusal to record his compositions, Eno left the band after the completion of For Your Pleasure.
Roxy Music's comeback effort, Manifesto, was released in the spring of 1979, and it boasted a sleek, disco-influenced soul-pop sound that was markedly different from and more accessible than their earlier records.

 Mills Music Library History   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The first mention of a music library on the University of Wisconsin campus dates to November 1900, when renovations were made to Assembly/Library Hall (now Music Hall) in order to accommodate its occupancy by the School of Music.
The first floor was to house "a waiting area, an office for the School's director, five piano studios, a rehearsal room, and a room for a music library." The music library is once again mentioned in the context of a renovation plan, originally proposed in 1916 but not undertaken until 1924.
A memorandum from that year indicates the holdings of the Music Library to be 2,500 volumes and clearly distinguishes between the branch and office libraries on campus.

 The History of Rock Music - The Seventies
The foundations of funk music had been laid in the second half of the 1960s by James Brown, the MG's, Sly & The Family Stone, the Meters, Dyke & The Blazers, etc. The syncopated polyrhythm, the groovey bass line, the metallic guitar timbre, the falsetto wail were all introduced in the 1960s.
Disco-music became a producer's music, and a studio-oriented music, propelled by artificial instruments, the exact opposite of rock music, which emphasized the live experience and was played with electric instruments.
The golden era of disco music basically ended in 1979, the year of the anthems, notably the Village People's YMCA (1979), produced by Jacques Morali, and Sister (Debbie) Sledge's We Are Family (1979), written by Chic's Edwards and Rodgers, which both celebrated the disco community from the inside.

 Robert Wyatt & Friends: Theatre Royal Drury Lane 8th September 1974 - PopMatters Music Review
While the music of bands like Yes, ELP, and King Crimson can be invigorating and exciting, there's a level of raw emotionality that often gets lost in the maze of tricky rhythms and endless solos.
The album (recorded in 1974 but unreleased until now) finds Wyatt at the peak of his powers, as he leads his friends from the English prog scene (including Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason and guitar wizards Fred Frith and Mike Oldfield) through his roiling, careening music.
That Wyatt was so in control of his musical power is sadly ironic, as the concert the music is taken from marked a major step in his return to music after a 1971 accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down.

 The Impulse Years 1973-1974 : Music
Admittedly this kind of jazz will not appeal to those whose idea of great music is Celine Deion, but it will reward those who have ears to hear the incredible interplay between the players on these recordings.
This comprehensive five-CD set, comprising all four of the pianist´s ensemble albums for the Impulse label along with unreleased tracks and extended edits of the original LP versions, sheds light on an earlier, warmer Jarrett, even as he raised his sights toward the Olympian goals of the past quarter century.
If Jarrett´s work since the ´70s has seemed austere and even forbidding in its acute aesthetic, there are moments throughout this generous portrait that attest to a more democratic spirit and more palpable pleasure in his American quartet ´s playing, distinguished from his parallel team of Scandinavian partners for his ECM label dates.

Mind you it's taken time, because the group has changed its personnel, its managers, and its record companies at venous stages in its career and though the musical development has in a sense been constant in that the group's beliefs and instrumental formula have remained, there's always been that slight doubt that they would continue.
Yet with the exception of ''The Musical Box and For Absent Friends'', somehow undifferentiated One is always left with the feeling that each track is trying a new crescendo via cacophony.
mainly because ''Foxtrot'' arrived shortly afterwards and was in the same musical vein Unfortunately ''Foxtrot'' was subject to time hassles and there is little evidence of thought in the musicianship Phil Collins constantly employs a heavy, limiting beat which threatens the rest of the group rather than punctuates or prompts it.
