If someone takes this on, Kohji is a fantastic source. He has collected MANY of the original LPs and
thus can refer directly to "HiFinformation" blurbs and session photos on the jackets. I don't think
I know anyone who has more original Mercury albums than Kohji. Especially with the pop stuff, some
which sold huge in its day but very little of which was ever reissued on CD.
