Wisconsin State Discography Books
Non-Wisconsin State Discography Books

      This is a working draft of the "Non-Wisconsin State Discography/Music Biography Books" bibliography chapter in my forthcoming book, (ca. 2028), FolkLib Index: Wisconsin Discography. Most of these reference sources include lists of recordings released by more than one artist or group in specific states other than Wisconsin.

      This bibliography page lists all known State Discography/Music Biography Books, listed by Author within State. A book may appear more than once if it contains information about more than one state. A state's name in the title is only linked if the book covers more than one state. A few known City Music Biography/Discography Books are listed after the general ones for each state. Other than the books I own, marked by {A}, or those I have seen and described, I don't know how much discography information the other books contain. Please write if you know details about similar state discography books not listed here.
      Except for the "Wisconsin Music: An Annotated Bibliography" by Steven L. Sundell, I have found no music related bibliography book for any other state.

Selection by State Name:
| Alabama | Alaska | Arizona | California | Connecticut | Florida | Hawaii | Illinois | Indiana | Iowa | Kansas | Louisiana | Maine | Minnesota | Missouri | New Jersey | New Mexico | North Dakota | Ohio | Oklahoma | Pennsylvania | South Dakota | Tennessee | Texas | Virginia | West Virginia | Wisconsin | Washington, D.C. |
| Regions |
      For states not listed on the above menu, no known state musical biography, no known state discography and no known state musical bibliography books have ever been published.

      {A} = I own a personal copy of this book.
      Wanted = Book needed for this State Book project. Only one copy is needed, preferably the most recent edition. I do not need every edition of every book.
