Books Info:

Who Did it First? free pdf In Who Did It First?: Great Pop Cover Songs and Their Original Artists, the second volume in Bob Leszczak's exciting Who Did It First? series, readers explore the hidden history of the most famous, indeed legendary, pop songs and standards. As Leszczak points out, the version you purchased, swayed to, sang to, and grew up with is often not the first version recorded. Like wine and cheese, some tunes do get better with age, and behind each there is a story. Little-known facts and amusing anecdotes, often gathered through Leszczak's vast archive of personal interviews with the singers and songwriters, record producers and label owners, who wrote, sang, recorded, and distributed either the original first cut or one of its classic covers.
