The Complete list of all "Rough Guide" music books ever published
    All known "Rough Guide" CD's (Various Artists Collections)

      As people are searching my site for Rough Guides (Wikipedia), here is a list of every edition of every music book in this series I know about.
      Rough Guides = Books with no "Rough Guides" link are either out of print or sold out. They cannot be purchased from the Publisher.
      {A} = books I own. In case anybody out there is feeling generous and has an extra copy of a book (without "{A}") they don't want, and would like to send it to me via USPS, it would be very much appreciated. -- Doug Henkle, P.O. Box 331, Ripon, WI 54971-0331
