Sorry for not replying to this one. I used to deal with the EMI archivist as
well, years ago, when they'd reply by fax. Then they started charging ten
pounds per half hour for research, then they made themselves unavailable. With
all due respect, I'm afraid instant answers from online sources are the only
ones most of us can use these days. By the time I wrote a letter and received a
response in the mail, the need for the information would have vanished weeks
previously. And in this case, the question is a dead one.
