Apple Pie Music: Music of American History/History of American Music

Lintronics has produced an encyclopedic work with Apple Pie Music: Music of American History/History of American Music. If you’re going to publish a CD-ROM that has a database at its heart, this is how to do it. It installs perfectly (there’s even an un-install!), the interface is excellent, easy to use and responsive, with many features and options. The title covers over 300 years of American music (sadly, there’s not much past the early days of rock ‘n’ roll) drawing on archival recordings including early jazz and blues. The photographs are wonderful serving as a true compliment to the music. The organization of the disc allowing you to search by either historical period or musical style makes it equally valuable to students of both disciplines. Searches are quick and the links from section to section are intelligent. Apple Pie Music is a superb reference work and a fine example of the richness that a multimedia CD-ROM can offer users.

– November 1994
