"Heartiest congratulations on the production. Splendidly done; far better quality and layout than any previous edition, and I am mightily impressed."

"Layout and text are beautiful, in keeping with Mainspring's previous publications. I want to commend you on your bravery for undertaking such a monumental task. This is the most significant and useful reference source in my library, and I'm so glad it has been amended to incorporate all the latest discographical information."
