|Helpful links used.|
|Besides transcribing data from my personal record collection, the following sites were used extensively and have links for each major artist at the bottom of the page:|
|Discogs was the primary source for album data and cover art work.|
|45cat was the primary source for 45 data and picture sleeves.|
|Wikipedia is becoming a better source for artist information.|
|Second Hand Songs is a great website to go to if you want to find out who else recorded a song. I Wanna Hold Your Hand, for example, shows 100+ versions! And, it is up-to-date (not stopping at 1972, like some websites!). Highlight and copy the song title (or composer) and just paste it into the "Discover" window and off you go.|
|EBay is a good source for looking for obscure 45 data and picture sleeves (link goes to Records).|
All Music was not that helpful, as it doesn't distinguish album data from CD data, release dates are sporadic, and single information is virtually non-existent. Since the redesign, it's become virtually useless and its link removed.
