The purpose of this guide is to provide quick access to the music highlighted in What's That Sound: An Introduction to Rock and Its History by John Covach and Andrew Flory. When new editions of this book are released, the library works on acquiring albums or collections of the musicians that have been included in the new edition. Some musicians from the 3rd edition may not be available through the library's Digital Sound Online Collection; however, the library is actively working on acquiring them.
If you are interested in researching music topics or have questions about the library, you are encouraged to contact your Music Librarian, Allison Quam for research assistance.
Access to the Digital Sound Online Collection is only available on the campus network or through a VPN connection. You can find otherDigital Sound Online Collection by searching the WSU Library Catalog. First select "Digital Sound Online Collection" from the "Libraries and Collections" drop-down menu. Then, search for the music by music piece, country, composer, or other key terms.
