Mangalore, Jan 25, 2012: Mangalorean author and wizard, Dr.Michael Lobo recently launched two new reference and information books on English Music. His dedicated historical material really enhances the information availability and base of the subjects he takes up. Therefore, it is more than vital that his works be given special attention and patronage by all those who will only profit by having his exclusive books. Institutions - particularly educational and academic, most of whom relate to music, must have copies of these two refence books which can provide information which can not be got in the same form any where. Further more currently they are made available to people of Mangalore only with a limited time, exclusive offer detailed below.
These two companion tomes are no mere books that one reads and puts away. This work of exclusive research is a tool, an instrument of reference and source of knowledge for the seeker of information on English Pop music from medeaval to modern times. It is a scientefic work of reference that will predictably never loose it’s usage value, like scriptural tomes or dictionaries and the like. It is not just for musicians but also for the student and seeker/searcher of information and knowledge in the field. There is no possibility that the contents will become out dated or obsolete and more........! The internet possibly may not serve as a cluster of all reference in one spot........these two are special tools for the love of English Pop music over decades past. Two instruments worth possesing for posterity and of special meaning to the Mangalorean as the author is a dedicated personality of Mangalore and it’s roots.
