LINKS: RECORD LABEL INFORMATION SOURCES AND OUTLETS

When I visit a web site about recorded music, I'm usually annoyed by the lack of a concise listing of what they have to offer.  Usually you have to scroll down a very long page (at best), or go through loading many pages to try to get a clue.  I, therefore, am attempting to put together some concise listings of label discographies that are of special interest to me. These probably will all be pretty avant-garde and the faint hearted probably need not bother going there, or visiting the follow up links (unless you're interested in finding out about the obscure, twisted material that you want to make sure that you don't accidentally buy).

(4/2/00) - I stand (somewhat) corrected on the above. Forced Exposure has a downloadable file of their offerings.  It's sorted by record label, and then by label catalog number. It includes specific descriptions of individual recordings without any artwork.  It's huge (3648143 bytes) and runs 466 pages.  Viewing it requires Adobe Acrobat 3 - A free download link of Acrobat is at the Forced Exposure site.  Check it out.  I will also continue to try summarizing more labels, many from Forced Exposure.

I've included record label numbers as best I could - But beware, they could be wrong!

As always, I encourage anyone interested in jazz to subscribe to Cadence magazine (I do).  I think Cadence is the best jazz publication, and it includes a huge listing of recordings that are available from them (many of which would otherwise be hard to find).
It's a monthly, and it costs $30.00 a year for U.S. delivery.
