Hi Mike:

These all I have, including studio and mic info when it was entered in the logs. What I don't have 
is:

* the pre April, 1950 sessions in the US. That would include the Mitch Miller oboe chamber music 
sessions and some earlier quartet stuff, if I recall correctly it was Fine Arts and another quartet.

* the German Telefunken recordings. I think there were both symphonic and small-ensemble material. I 
do not know if there was vocal material.

* the Czech-original material, which may encompass only the Shostakovich and Oistrakh 1946 records 
previously mentioned.

The pre April 1950 original recordings were definitely Mercury through and through. I think the 
German and Czech material was originally licensed by Keynote before it was taken over by Mercury. So 
the exact details of this material may not show up in any Mercury discographies.
