There were a couple of books which came out in the 60s ...From Tin foil to
stereo. Welch and first one by Gallatt(?) Both useful. At one point I
created a bibliography of recorded sound  but since, lost it. There are
some useful items listed in Music and Reference MATERIALS by Duckles and
others with newer editions
