The 78rpm Home Page - General Discographies

The Jazz Discography is available online or via CD-ROM!

This is the monumental work by Tom Lord. Anyone who is the least bit interested in knowing recording dates, personnel, which record companies and catalog numbers issued it, takes, material that was recorded but not issued, etc., NEEDS this! This work/tool is fully indexed and searchable and covers jazz releases on 78, 45, LP and CD. Over 51,152 leaders, over 247,298 recording sessions, over 1,423,691 musician entries and over 1,620,501 tune entries plus the online version is updated almost daily. Every field in the database can be searched individually or in groups with a selection dialog box.

Catalog your record collection with a couple of mouse clicks per session using the online version! Search and sort your collection, just like the full database! Go back and forth between your own collection and the full database for comparison. If you do not need to use the cataloging system it can be used to create a Want List of recordings you are looking to get. Either your Catalog or Want List will be neatly summarized and can be sorted by 6 different criteria, including Leader and Record Company. Subscribe today or give a 12 month subscription as a gift. For the collector who has everything to the collector who wants to save time to the collector who wants to know who is playing on recordings.
