Booklist Review: "The first three titles list more than 40 years of song titles from the Billboard charts with artist and title access and listings of top records year by year. The fourth book lists 4,170 singles from Billboard's chart of possible future hits, also with artist and title access. See Cash Box titles for similar information from their charts."
