THE PARAGRAPHS BELOW, LARGE SCALE, UN-CREDITED RIP-OFFS OF LABEL LISTINGS
HITHERTO ON THIS WEBSITE HAVE BEEN DISCOVERED, AND AS A RESULT, WE HAVE DECIDED TO REMOVE EVERYTHING WITH THE EXCEPTION OF TWO
LISTINGS COMPILED WITH MUCH OUTSIDE HELP.
The advent of the internet has been a
mixed blessing, providing as it does a wonderful research tool to unearth
missing catalogue numbers, often for records only issued outside the UK,
and a whole wealth of extra information about the records, the companies and
performers. The downside has been the behaviour by some people of taking
other people's hard work and using it wholesale without any credit to the
original source, which has happened to all of Paul's published work.
Moving on, the RIS archive now resides
in Canada and Paul has retired, but keeping it within the family and with
his blessing and greatly needed assistance, I am making available through
the links above unpublished label listings, and some published ones as well. All I ask is that anybody using the
available resources here should not steal the information en masse
and give credit where credit is due, to Record
Information Services and Paul Pelletier's pioneering efforts.
Adding links on other
websites to this website is welcome and will be reciprocated.
