Compilation of Discography of Hillbilly Records

Project to collect and catalogue all hillbilly/country music recordings produced by one the major recording companies of the period, 1922-1947, prior to introduction of LP recordings. Project will conserve data that will otherwise soon be lost. Sound recordings are serious communication medium, relevant to understanding much older American music as well as an important source of lifestyle and culture. Popular music reflects the character and lifestyle of America. Project will use modern computer techniques of information storage and retrieval to permit ready indexing of the material by whatever parameters are of interest to the researcher: artist, title, thematic content, date, composer, etc.
