DISCLAIMER:

These Articles were originally presented in The Record News – the Journal of The Society of Indian Record Collectors, which I helped to establish in 1990, however I have not ever been a paid-up or subscribing member of the Society. I have simply contributed the articles as a guide to discography study in a hope that other record collectors might adopt a similar disciplinary procedure to their own articles.

 The editions of The Record News from 2006 onwards, have named me as the ‘Patron Member’ – a position I neither endorse, want nor seek. I am not a record collector as per say – and have interests in other branches of Discography research besides Indian recordings.
