Thanks for response. I guess you don't really need 43-66 if you have 43-70.

Add Blues & Gospel Records - 1890-1943 (Dixon, Godrich, Rye) to the testament and you're all set.

Recording The Blues (Dixon, Godrich, Oliver) would be a good companion
Harry, another option might be to invest in "Yonder Come The Blues (CUP 2001) which not only includes a reprint of Recording The Blues  but also Savannah Syncopators, Blacks, Whites & Blues. There were 11 Blues Paperbacks in the series which I feel sure have been discussed at Weenie.

Just picked up these three books together for 20 euros from a private seller. Not a bad deal I'd say.

Blues And Gospel Records, 1902-1943 (Dixon, Godrich)
Blues And The Poetic Spirit (Garon)
The Devil's Son-In-Law (Garon)

I think the seller was unaware of the international value of the 1902-1943 (starts at around 75 dollar).
I'm not sure but I think the Paul Garon material is part of the 11 paperback series.

Continue my search for the 43-70. Looks like the Fancourt, McGrath edition is not available second hand.
Read somewhere that finding a copy of 1943-1970, Vol. 2, L to Z. is like finding snow in the Sahara.

Try Bookfinder, Harry--It looks like they list several European and UK sellers:

I might be mistaken, but it looks like a couple of libraries in Germany have Vol. 2 in their holdings:
