and by Phil Collins as

"the most thorough and knowledgeable music journalist in the world today",

Glenn A. Baker is a three time winner of the BBC's Rock Brain Of The Universe title, though possessing a knowledge of music well beyond rock.

An author of 15 books, Glenn is:
  • a nationally syndicated radio and television presenter of long standing
  • the specialist compiler and/or annotator of more than 500 highly acclaimed album anthologies
  • a writer of features for more than 200 publications (in Australia and internationally)
  • was the Australian Editor of Billboard for more than 20 years and
  • is the owner of one of the most extensive music archives in the world.

He was hailed by former Australian Prime Minister as "A kind of cultural photographer who can vividly conjure up images and feelings of periods."
