Someone will be the local expert on the Buffalo recording scene.  Usually he 
is found among the city's 45 collectors.  Contact the music librarian at the 
Buffalo PL.  He'll know or know who to contact.  Check out the guys who put 
on the local record shows- they'll know who collects local labels and is 
obsessed with the info you seek.

I am trying to clear some music from this label for use in a documentary
