CRITIC REVIEW:

“In 1966, Mr. Fagan was granted liberal access to the recording files held by RCA Victor Records, the successor to the Victor Talking Machine Company. Mr. Fagan devoted many thousands of hours to compiling lists of the tens of thousands of Victor master recording sessions. Mr. Fagan’s process was to create index cards for each recording session listed in Victor’s ledgers, which were arranged by recording artist. The artist ledgers included the dates of recording, the names of works performed, the number of ‘takes’ recorded, and information about accompanists or musical forces employed at the session.”
