I gotta give credit where it's due.
This is the best Command reference:
along with a doctoral thesis for NYU by Richard Gradone
As for Mercury Living Presence, the best reference are the CD/book set "You Are There," widely
available on eBay, and the 3-part series "The Winged Champion" by Michael Gray published in The
Absolute Sound. Best source for discographic info is the CD booklets, which were very carefully
verified/checked and my mother used her original session books so the mist of 40 years time didn't
