The "Index to Record Reviews" volumes are large, buckram-bound volumes.
About 300 pp ea. They cover the materials analyzed quarterly in "Notes,"
the journal of the Music Library Association.
"Record Ratings" preceeded "Index".
Vols I-4 of index go through 1977. That's where my run leaves off.
One supplementary volume covers 1984-1987.
1978-1983 probably preceeds it.
I don't know if there was a further compilation.
I think Jerome Weber has a run. Chime in, Jerry?
