The latest in a long run of "Great" Discography books (18 reference sources for Rock, Metal, Alternative & Indie) - this SECOND Volume of THREE by Martin C. Strong on 'Folk' is as superlative as its predecessor. Volume 1 came out in June 2010 and covered the old school of Folk in "Pioneers And Early Legends" and ran to a whopping 620 pages (see separate detailed review). This 2nd instalment concentrates entirely on 'NEW' artists - roughly covering 1977 to 2011. Volume 3 will arrive in early 2013...

Published by Polygon Books in October 2011, "The Great Folk Discography Volume 2 - The New Generation" has 346 large-sized pages and a 'Foreword' by the acclaimed Scottish Folk guitarist and singer ALASDAIR ROBERTS.

Like Volume 1 (with its 3 distinct sections) - Strong has given his 2nd tome 2 divides:
1. Britain And Beyond (Pages 1 to 188) [UK, Irish, Scottish, Welsh and European Artists]
2. North America (Pages 189 to 346) [US and Canadian Artists]

The overall layout is the same as his other books - a hugely detailed and fact-heavy Biog heads up the artist section (with albums mentioned and rated) followed by an ascending Year-by-Year discography. You then get Date Of Release, Format (7", 12" and LPs included), Title, Catalogue numbers, track list for the original vinyl followed by details of subsequent vinyl reissues, followed by CD reissues (noting bonus tracks where applicable) - even providing line-up changes in-between the entries. It's a huge amount of genuine information and makes for fascinating reading.

First I bought Vol. I of this great encyclopy. More comprehensive you can't get in this field. Now this volume. With relative newer folk bands. I checked most of them; all good choices.
