The Rodgers & Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound, New York Public
Library for the Performing Arts, has a pretty complete run of RECORD
RESEARCH and its Supplements. I still have fond memories of Lenny always
running in, and bringing us copies.
They're for research use on the premises, but it's possible they might agree
to scan some copies for you, depending on how they understand the copyright
rulings. Please see below for a listing of their holdings.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Record Research Scans
I know some of you were involved in the writing and publication of Record
Research Magazine. Can any of you tell me decisively whether anyone would
contest the free distribution of PDF scans of the magazine? I emailed the
representative of Spivey Records (my best guess for a 'rightsholder'), but
got no response. I've been collecting them when I can find them, and now
have about half of the full run scanned (less the sales lists).
Does anybody have any of the issues listed below that they would be willing
to lend, give or sell to me? I intend to put them up for free download when
Finally, I think they would be much more useful if the text was searchable.
Can anyone recommend a good (free?) OCR service that can accept PDF files?
Thanks in advance for any help or advice, Mason Vander Lugt Still needed:
1-42, except 17, 19-20, 22-24, 27
112-220 except 189/190, 201/202
(If my math seems fuzzy to you, it's because they were published in
double-issues after 112)
