"The Victor 20000 and 21000-series issues have long been the subject of myth-making and questionable research methods.
Now John Bolig strips away the guesswork and fabricated data to offer a revealing look at exactly what is — and is not — contained in the original Victor, RCA, and Gramophone Co. documentation."
