LIST OF ALL LABEL DISCOGRAPHIES IN THE 2009 EDITION OF "THE DIRECTORY"

"THE DIRECTORY" began in the early 70's as a small collection of individual artist and label discographies, and has grown and evolved into its present form by a series of supplements, additions, reprints, etc.  The brand new 2009 35th Anniversary Edition consolidates all of the supplements, additions and corrections of the past into the new 5 Volume edition. 

FIRST-TIME BUYERS: The price of the complete 2009 5-volume set is $290.00 + $20 S&H in the US, or $115 International S&H.  It includes everything listed below except the Re-Issue and Picture Sleeve Supplements, which are available separately at $22.50 each.

2009 REVISED VOLUME 5 - Newly revised, expanded and reprinted

$60.00 + $9.00 S&H ($30 Itn'l. S&H)

In 2000, we introduced a brand new Volume 5 to the 4-Volume "DIRECTORY OF AMERICAN 45 R.P.M. RECORDS".  It included 1,522 never before available label discographies, including many of the small independent labels.  The response to the smaller labels was so terrific that we assembled the old research gang and started digging some more.  The result was so not only thousands of additions to those labels, but the addition of over 1,120 label discographies not included previously.  This brand new (and most likely the last) revision adds another 1,350+ labels, bringing the total, just in Volume 5, to over 3,900 labels.  This works out to about a nickel a piece for all 5,500+ labels in the 5-Volume set!! The New Revised Volume 5 has 862 pages (316 more than the 2004 Volume 5).  This revised Volume 5 is available separately, and is part of the 5-Volume set if you are a 1st-time buyer of "THE DIRECTORY".
