David,did you know about the Coates recordings with the Pro Arte ? Not
seemed to have got your response on that but as I said EMI at Hyes are
usually excellent at allowing researchers to check up on details or even
writing the archivist should get a friendly reply.Suzanne Lewis was the
archivist a few years ago but I lost touch with her.Her name cropped up in
Stuart Upton's Light music magazine in the late 1990's before he died and
the mag folded but when I wrote her a few years ago,got no reply so assume
there is a new archivist these days.
Bill Dean -Myers has found EMI very co-operative recently during his
research into Beltona and also Scotsrdings from 1888.
