What is RRMRB and can I still buy copies?
RRMRB stands for Rock Report's Melodic Rock Bible. It’s a series of four books that lists 1,200 acts (bands & solo artists) whose style can be described as AOR (Adult Orientated Rock), melodic (hard) rock/metal or progressive rock/metal. Each of the four parts of RRMRB counts a total of 132 pages, in black & white and is printed on glossy paper. In each part detailed information is given on about 300 important artists and bands.
Each entry reads like this: name of the act (band or solo artist) / country of origin / style of music / full discography (album title, label, year of 1st release, album rating, number of tracks & tracklist) / line-up (of each album: an alphabetical list of the regular musicians, mentioning all the instruments they play) / additional musicians (of each album: an alphabetical list of the guest musicians, mentioning all the instruments they play) / songwriters (of each album: an alphabetical list of the songwriters) / producers (of each album: an alphabetical list of the producers).
At the end of each part an act and album cover index is to be found. Almost all the information is compiled from the albums (sleeves & inlays) of the acts themselves.
The aim of RRMRB is to provide the reader a useful and accurate guide to melodic rock acts and the albums they have recorded. RRMRB attempts to include every studio and live album of the selected acts, including EPs. Only the best compilations are included. Singles and bootlegs are not included.
All parts of RRMRB are abundantly provided with illustrations. With more than 800 pictures, 400 logos and 1,600 album covers, it gives RRMRB an important surplus value as view-book.
