Sadly, the above description fits at least 90% of discographic reference
works! There are all-but-innumerable cases where something (a label, an
artist, a lesser genre, usw.) has been documented by an enthusiastic (or
eccentric) collector/discographer...but the resulting work was run off
on a mimeograph (or similar) to the tune of 25 or so copies, and only
exists in that form (to the extent that copies haven't been consigned
to trash bins when estates were closed up...).
In fact, what we of the 78-ophilic community need is for someone
with the necessary time and ambition to data-enter these obscurities
into HTML-file "web pages" and make them more available...!
