Does anyone know the history of SOUNDBOOK (BOOK-RECORDS Inc.) which produced a series
of 10" LP's bound with a book relating to the recording, one had 45rpm disks.

Some of the albums were re-issued by CAEDMON in a CB-x series (with 10" LP),
and later expanded to 12" with additional material.

They may have a connection with COOK RECORDS - one indicates "a Cook recording",
another has recordings edited by Sam Eskin, who was connected to Cook (but also
Folkways, and independent).

Below is a list of the albums I know of - PLEASE send information for any others.  Thanks!

Best wishes, Thomas.
