"Each section...contains several (up to fourteen) individual contributions. Editorial comment, where required, is unobtrusive but always authoritative. Mr Moran is, of course, well known to the Record Collector through his own scholarly and meticulous work. Of the discography, I will only say that it is produced to his own exacting standards."
