Description: Contrary to the widely held opinion that most of our hit and standard songs were composed by a handful of top writers -- Berlin, Gershwin, Kern, Porter, and Rodgers -- the fact is that the vast majority of them were written by relatively unknown composers. The Unsung Songwriters brings long overdue recognition to these influential writers, and at the same time highlights a neglected but important segment of our American musical heritage.

The Unsung Songwriters is dedicated to a period in the history of American music that author Warren Vache calls the "Golden Age of Songwriting", and to the men and women who made it great. During this time the popular song, a peculiarly American invention, was honed and developed into the highly sophisticated musical idiom that would be admired and respected around the world.
