films etc., the national archive of Sweden!
In the box called "fritext", means "free text", you can f.inst. put in the
catalogue number or the artist you want to search information about.
Hope it helps!

Emne: [ARSCLIST] Swedish Sonora Label Discography?
I hope you'll pardon a sudden query from a longtime lurker on this list.
