Subject: [ARSCLIST] Assistance Needed with "Geod"


Is anyone here familiar, or have had experience with, the Lukas Foss
recording of his own "Geod" with the Buffalo Philharmonic on Vox Candide
CE 31042? It is a 36-minute orchestral work that is amorphous in form,
so it's very difficult to pin down its trajectory by ear; it spreads
over both sides of the Vox LP. However, it appears as though the sides
are switched -- "side 2" ends with a fade, whereas "side 1" does not.
The label copy on Side 2 is a mess, with a hand-written "2" and the
timing scratched out with nothing to replace it, and the matrix number
likewise corrected by hand. The wax numbering shows similar kinds of
cross-outs.  

Any help would be appreciated.

Records catalog circa 1960


  It is a very frequent and disheartening occurrence that the booklets
which
accompanied 78rpm albums
(sometimes LPs) are missing from copies available from dealers and
online
sources.  These booklets are frequently very rich sources of
information,
and have their intrinsic interest.
  Catalogs from specialized record companies are also of great interest
(Classical, Folk, Jazz, Documentary, Spoken word, etc.).
  Is there any person or organizations with a website where these could
be
made available permanently?
  Whenever possible, I have provided scans of this type of material.  I
hope
others
in this community are willing to do the same.  This could be a resource
of
immense importance to scholars and collectors.
  Would be a great service if LoC, Smithsonian, or University would
commit
to this.
  Comments / Suggestions ?????
Best wishes, Thomas.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Everest Records catalog circa 1960


Does anyone have in their "half-vast archives" a copy of the Everest
Records
catalog from 1960
timeframe (1959 would be fine, too)? If so, may I trouble you for a
photocopy or a scan or a loan to
scan it? Feel free to ping me off-list and thanks in advance if you can
help.
