This refers to the DOCUMENT label; they are noted for reissuing the work
of artists in complete chronological order. This should NOT be confused
with the "DocumentS" CD label, which seems to be a product of the German
"Membran" operation; this latter label puts out 10-disc sets of 200+ tunes,
often copying material from already-issued (by others) LP's or CD's...these
sets sell for $20-$25, sometimes less on the net...!
