Hi Barry,

I've got a copy in a G5 binding and a Gh jacket: pages 469-506 contain the record listings.  The jacket is blank on the inside.  I have no way to date the book (aside from the binding), and the jacket appears to be around 1966-67 or so.

All of those listed, of course, were 78 rpm records. Does anyone have later printings without listings of recordings, or with updated lists?
