Thanks for the link. Interesting site.
If I read correctly, they are putting much of the recordings on-line. However, the link I found yields
an error - permission denied. Are the online files restricted to University only, or other restriction - or are they
simply not up so far ???
I sent an inquiry about a discography - so far, no response.
The site list the 22 SWP CD's with details. From the introduction to this series I infer that the CD's contain all and more
from the recordings which have been issued and reissued on various LP labels (but NOT the 200+ albums issued by ILAM).
If anyone has listings of the Decca/London, Gallo/Gallotone, Kaleidophone LP's they can send, greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Below are very incomplete listings I've accumulated.....
Best wishes, Thomas.
