Hi Darren,

I am not entirely sure what you expect from us. Is it additional labels that 
you might want to distinguish, is it the format LAB-, which to me seems to 
take up more space than needed.

Among labels, I would personally like to be able to distinguish among the 
various national versions of HMV, for instance Voix de son Maître (VdM), Voce 
del Padrone (VdP), Husbondens Röst (HuR), and similar, like Gramola, 
Electrola. I do not know Arkiv Produktion, but if it is Deutsche Grammophon, 
it would be Archiv, and I would propose DGA.

But my best advice is to obtain various important dealers' lists and see what 
they use, and actually adhere to that - for simplicity and universality. 
Hopefully you can do that before your system solidifies.

I might have a host of other questions, but better knowledge of your needs 
would help me reduce the number.

Kind regards,


George
