This arm of APS Publications covers rock music in which I have a fanatical interest and classical music thanks to the expertise of my friend Keith Horsfall. We publish the wonderfully obscene ‘Troggs Black Tape’ and a series of essential discographies for collectors . We don’t pretend these are detailed career biographies but they will save you a lot of intensive internet research. So far there are 18 volumes out and a title on the virtuoso pianist Keith Jarrett is in preparation. After that we’re open to suggestions for what comes next.
We also publish notes for classical music orchestral repertoire from ALBINONI to WEBER. Series 1&2 have 196 titles, each sold with a licence to reproduce the text to accompany a concert or classical music event. So if you’re preparing a concert programme and wish to save yourself the effort of writing your own synopsis of the music then for 99p or $1.29…See links at the foot of the BUY FOR KINDLE page of this website.
Many of our friends play music so the rest of this section is given over to artists from around the world whose work deserves more attention than it gets. It’s dedicated to Rich McMahon 1973 – 2015
