The IRCC and HRS reissues were reviewed as they came out in the Americna
Record Guide. Aida Favia-Artsy reviewed many and discussed their origins in
various issued of Hobbies Magazine. ARG was indexewd in "Music Index" but
not the individual reviews, as I recall. Hobbies wasn't.
These labels also sent new release announcements to subscribers and
The info is out there but requires lots of digging. And the dates of the
dubbed items on the labels are notoriously unreliable.

looking at what is available via GoogleBooks, it seems that this book has
one big "failing". It seems that it does not list the dates of the reissues,
only of the original recordings. If someone knows that there is an index for
precisely this (a sort of chronological "discography" of special pressings),
then I am merely ignorant and would like to be informed.
