"For anyone with Victor Red Seal single-sided records in his or her collection, or with an interest in the issues in North America of HMV artists or in Europe of Victor artists, this volume is self-recommending….To say that this first volume of The Victor Red Seal Discography is essential reading seems almost redundant. It’s simply a ‘must-have’ reference for the individual collector, discographer and institutional librarian….setting new standards in discographical research."
- Barry R. Ashpole, THE RECORD COLLECTOR, 2004
"Carefully prepared work... The true enthusiast cannot manage without all the resources mentioned here."
