I added that query, but not the opera part because we dont have that
type of catagory yet, but would love to.
(we only have 1 hit for victor in that date range, sorry to say, but
only 1/2 of our recordings have dates at this point, so we have work to
do on that front).

Yes, we seem to have a broad section of materials because we are
digitizing whole collections-- and there are some crazy records.
bugle calls, sound effects, square dancing calls, lots of yodelling.
