Notes for February 2016

Number of items in this month's catalogue: 0

OK, I'm finally admitting that unusual repertoire recordings are decreasing in quantity as more and more of the independent labels we rely on for that music shift to more artist-driven business plans. So the days of 90-100 title monthly catalogues are probably gone. But, even though the number of titles may be smaller, as you can see this month, the quality is still good (e.g. the first 5 releases). Also not helping this month was that winter storm which helped to delay the arrival at their distributors of a dozen more titles I would have offered.
