The "Index to Record Reviews" volumes are large, buckram-bound volumes. 
About 300 pp ea.  They cover the materials analyzed quarterly in "Notes," 
the journal of the Music Library Association.

"Record Ratings" preceeded "Index".
Vols I-4 of index go through 1977.  That's where my run leaves off.

One supplementary volume covers 1984-1987.

1978-1983 probably preceeds it.

I don't know if there was a further compilation.

I think Jerome Weber has a run.  Chime in, Jerry?
