Product Description

About the Author

Joel Whitburn began collecting records as a teenager in the 1950s. As his collection grew, he began to sort, categorise and file each record according to the highest position it reached on Billboard magazine's charts. He went on to publish this information - first on individual artists' cards, then in book form in 1970 - and a business was born. Today, Joel leads a team of researchers who delve into all of Billboard's music charts to an unmatched degree of depth and detail. Widely recognised as the most authoritative historian on charted music, Joel has also collaborated with Warner/Rhino Records in creating a series of 150 CD albums, plus five CD albums with Curb Records.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot R&B Songs 22 Oct 2012
By Michelle - Published on Amazon.com
How refreshing it is to see that there was a book out there with alot of Soul & Hip Hop Artist. From James Brown to Lil Wayne. I've been a music lover since age 11 and it was great to see artist whom my parents grew up listening to and what my kids are listening to now in this book. Tells you so much about the artist and the songs that were on the Billboard charts. I would recommend this book to anyone who love black music
