Thanks Steve. I'm getting a better feel for the Index now. "Through 1977"
is a 4 volume set that is approximately 1200 pages for the set. And then
there are 2, maybe 3, supplements that follow.
Care to make any approximations as to how many recordings are listed in the
4-volume set? 10,000, 20,000, 30,000?
