THE RECORDS

All are 10-inch 78rpm discs except where indicated otherwise.

Records are listed by genre, with a code of ANNN, where A= the genre code, and NNN  is the numeric listing within that genre. The record number is followed by a code reflecting the condition of the label, and if the label has been scanned or not. 

All detail from the label has been listed as possible. This includes the catalog number followed by the matrix number in parenthesis. This is followed by the Label, and the company name.  Then comes the title of the track in captials, followed by the writer(s), in brackets, and the artists. Additional detail such as a movie film in which the track was featured, and other details that the producers list are also included. 

There are some duplicate records.  Occasionally, a further description of the record is indicated, such as details of a crack. I have also about one hundred 12-inch classical records not recorded.
