Leeds & Catlin Records: Acknowledgments
I am especially grateful to Steve Harding, Kurt Nauck, and Tim Brooks, without whose help Bill Bryant’s and the Record Research associates’ research materials and unpublished manuscripts might well have remained inaccessible, or been lost entirely. The recovery of these materials (in storage since the mid-1990s) and subsequent assignment of publication rights to Mainspring Press marks a major step forward for discographical research.
Completion of this project would not have been possible without help from the numerous collectors, dealers, and researchers (many of them no longer with us) who provided data or access to their holdings over the course of many decades, including E. G. Anderson, Frank Andrews, Perry Armagnac, Arthur Badrock, Joe Baldwin, Thomas E. Banulski, Brian Barnes, David Barron, Ernie Bayly, John V. Beck, George Blacker, Ted Bombadier, Oliver Brauer, Frank Bridges, Tim Brooks, Martin Bryan, Harold Burgess, Paul Burgess, Dick Carty, Paul Charosh, Donald W.
