This article is in my view very important historically, and could be a fantastic article eventually. Does anyone have any sources for more information? The first step for improvement should be to cite the existing information, and then expand upon it as best we can. I'd love to see this on the front page one day! :) SlapAyoda 12:19, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

  • I'd like to know how many of these recordings still exist in Sony/BMG's vaults... I know that RCA demolished one of their warehouses, which held 4 floors of pre-tape material (wax discs, pressing plates, rehearsal discs, ledgers, etc, and wonder if any of this material was in there Garr1984 01:44, 3 August 2007 (UTC) §

So far this lacks citations. Some of it could be cited from David Sanjek, "All the Memories Money Can Buy: Marketing Authenticity and Manufacturing Authorship", p. 155–172 in Eric Weisbard, ed., This is Pop, Harvard University Press, 2004. ISBN 0-674-01321-2 (cloth), ISBN 0-674-01344-1 (paper). No doubt far more of it could be cited (and the article expanded) by following up Sanjek's many footnotes. I suspect, in particular, that Richard A. Peterson and Archie Green would each have written useful material. - Jmabel | Talk 00:27, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Also, someone should certainly track down Charles Wolfe, "The Legend that Peer Built" in Paul Kingsbury, The Country Reader: Twenty-five Years of the Journal of Country Music (Nashville: The Country Music Foundation Press & Vanderbilt UP, 1996). - Jmabel | Talk 00:31, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
