Who told you that lie???? http://www.78rpmrecord.com/avrl.htm On this page, in 1996, Kurt Nauck wrote: "Imagine having instant access to a complete listing of every 78rpm and cylinder recording made in the United States!" I was wrong by not restricting my statement to "every U.S. 78". This was the stated goal of the AVRL (aka AND), and as I understand it, the goal was almost accomplished before the 1993-2006 project was abandoned? What I can't find is, what happened to the massive amount of information accumulated in the AVRL? Is it accessible anywhere by anyone? My name and E-Mail address are always in the "From:" field. As of now, I will no longer include my signature in messages posted to any mailing list. Most people seem to be incapable of cutting out unnecessary or unreferenced text in their replies. I really appreciate all the very helpful responses, but for just this "Chicago's Oriole Records" posting I made, seven copies of my signature were posted back to the List! How many copies of this complete 7 or 8 line paragraph will get reposted to the List as part of responses about the AVRL? Hopefully, none.
