but it's still a big thick book of lists with no nutritional value.

The binding paste is actually quite tasty and makes a fine broth when boiled.   ;D

Thanks Andrew . . . this book has become rather essential for me. I've amassed quite a collection of mp3s & liner-noteless cds (WHAT is Yazoo's Problem?!!) & I'm seriously in need of a reference for them. I've begun several obsessive lists of my own, was even about to begin a song title list of all I have & then when I read the 4th edition has a song title & artist index I think I gasped out loud: really really essential for a nerd like me.
Is there a reference volume for 'country blues' after 1943 I wonder? & is there online access to ammendations for 'Blues & Gospel'? 
Thanks
p.s. . . . sorry so many questions but is there an 'Old-Time' music equivalent of 'Blues & Gospel' out there?

See Weeniepedia for the post war discography or refer the "discographies tag". However both the blues and the gospel editions stop at 1970 and singularly cost even more than B&GR. Howard Rye contributes a column in Blues & Rhythm entitled 'I Believe I'll Make A Change' to take into account errors, corrections, additions and minutiae. Back in 1997 it was a regular feature but has since become "occasional"! Nothing on-line.

I've been asking that for at least 35 years.

A dust jacket exists but I suspect the copies floating around today don't have any. Mine did not.

and the answer is......yes!  The analog is Country Music Records A Discography, 1921-1942 Tony Russell


Indispensable for pre-war fanatics.

Could weenie-ites pool our resources to purchase web rights to this book and put it up on weeniepedia?
Its the kind of reference that really should be accessible on the web.

That'd be cool . . . As someone who now has the darn thing I would LOVE to see a thread dedicated to ammendments that we ourselves find or that others have resource to. I've had it for only a couple days & already have a list of corrections & updates.

That'd be a lot of typing, OMuck! I agree though that such documents are naturals for the web.

Cheapfeet, great idea. Why not start a new thread?

There already is such a thread (though it has been long dormant) located at http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?amp;Itemid=60&topic=736.0.
All best,

Well I suppose some enterprising soul could OCR all Howard Rye's I Believe I'll Make A Change amendments/additions/etc column published in Blues & Rhythm since 1997. Might save some folk from reinventing the wheel....

No need to OCR them. Just scan 'em and put 'em up as jpegs, giffs or pdfs. If we have to we can charge a buck a download or something like that to satisfy copyright holders.

I'm addicted to Amazon Kindle, it's changed my reading life for the better. I'd buy B&GR again if it were available for Kindle.

Other kindle-heads might want to go into the Amazon page and do like I did, click on 'Tell the publisher, I want to read this on Kindle', just below the image of the book.
