I have found the new Oxford Paperback Reference to be exceptional to anything currently in print in America. Of course, I am one of the few Americans who believe Daniel Webster destroyed English in the "New World" and I only use the British version of both Oxford and Chambers Dictionaries. I would urge both casual and serious music aficionados regardless of your 'Port-of-call' to give this edition a try. I have only one caveat: I wish the size were a few centimeters less as the present size of 19 x 15 cm is a bit too large to be considered a "pocket edition"---but then the description of this item never alludes to such a claim.
Purely an observatation, but this is published in what I call 'lightweight' paper. That is not to say the paper is flimsy - it isn't - but if I compared it with an identical paperback it would weigh much less. Just an observation!
An excellent buy I think.
