The On Record series is an encyclopedic look at the evolution of popular music from 1978 to 1998.
Colorado Music Experience founding director and author G. Brown covered popular music at The Denver Post for 26 years, interviewing well over 3,200 musicians, including Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger, and Kurt Cobain, all of whom recounted their escapades and reminisced about what their time on the charts meant to them personally and musically. Over the decades, G. also amassed an archive of close to 15,000 rare promotional photos.
Each volume of the On Record series presents nearly 200 rare archival images and 100 interviews with an array of performers, from the late Jerry Garcia and Dave Matthews to Bono and Santana. Beautifully crafted, these books belong in the library of every music fan and music institute.

“It’s always nice when the person interviewing me knows more about music than I do. Every time I’ve spoken to G. Brown over the decades, he has impressed me with his knowledge and, more importantly perhaps, his humor. I enjoy people who make me laugh, and G. does that constantly. Read his On Record books and enjoy his perspective.
–Graham Nash, two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee
“I’ve always thought that the music journalists from large daily newspapers were more credible than others, if only for the fact that they saw and heard so much more music than anyone else. G. Brown, the Denver Post‘s beat writer for 26 years, proves my point with his On Record books.”
–Huey Lewis, Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and actor
“For decades, nobody in Colorado had more access to the biggest stars or wrote more insightfully about music than G. Brown. Finally, with the On Record book series, he digs through his notes for exclusive interviews, digs through his garage for a lifetime of photos, and digs through his brain to craft indispensable mini-histories on all your favorite acts.”
–Steve Knopper, Billboard editor at large and author of MJ: The Genius of Michael Jackson
