Acknowledgements

I am but a sundry messenger compared to the DJs, collectors, compilers/liner writers and authors who really know their stuff. We live in the information age when much of what one needs is available within a few key strokes. If not, there’s a wealth of books, articles and CD notes to help, providing one can lay hands on them. The comments and conclusions in my chart are my own, but would have been impossible to compose without the following sources (by no means exhaustive):
