Thomas,

I don't know much, but I have work in progress towards a study of Club 99.
55 is pretty far along in their chronology, suggesting that the
Kipnis Testimonial Record was picked up by Club 99 after NYGS ran out of
stock on the title.

I had the Matzenaur once; it was very nice, red vinyl record.

best,
