"For anyone with Victor Red Seal...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 [these] volume[s] of The Victor Red Seal Discography [are] essential reading seems almost redundant. [They are] simply ‘must-have’ reference[s] for the individual collector, discographer and institutional librarian….setting new standards in discographical research."
