It is a very frequent and disheartening occurrence that the booklets which
accompanied 78rpm albums
(sometimes LPs) are missing from copies available from dealers and online
sources. These booklets are frequently very rich sources of information,
and have their intrinsic interest.
Catalogs from specialized record companies are also of great interest
(Classical, Folk, Jazz, Documentary, Spoken word, etc.).
Is there any person or organizations with a website where these could be
made available permanently?
Whenever possible, I have provided scans of this type of material. I hope
in this community are willing to do the same. This could be a resource of
immense importance to scholars and collectors.
Would be a great service if LoC, Smithsonian, or University would commit
Comments / Suggestions ?????
Best wishes, Thomas.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Everest Records catalog circa 1960
Does anyone have in their "half-vast archives" a copy of the Everest Records
catalog from 1960
timeframe (1959 would be fine, too)? If so, may I trouble you for a
photocopy or a scan or a loan to
scan it? Feel free to ping me off-list and thanks in advance if you can
