Hello, Peter, Here is where I fall down on my knowledge of cataloging, etc., But...and you've probably thought this all thorugh... A thought occurred to me. This is invaluable metadata about specific recordings. Presumably these recordings are in the NYPL collection as well (either at Donnell or Lincoln Centre?--it's been years since I've been in NY). It would be very useful if somehow a tie could be generated between this information and the recording. Then, someone researching the recording would find the specific data. Also, somehow indexing it by the personnel would be very useful. I'm wondering if it would be useful to an external resource like the All Music Guide? Thanks for listening.
