Seventy Years of Issues

Overview

Short-listed for the 2002 Award for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research

In the seventy years since 1931, various organizations large and small, including several semi-private ones, have issued or re-issued various original 78 rpm recordings from original metal plates. No comprehensive listing of these has ever before appeared; this is the first, and gathers together all the various information of ongoing interest. This is a most important addition to the record-collecting bibliography.
