    All I've ever "found" was a near complete DeWolfe and KPM back catalogue from a record man in Texas. The most obsivous biggies (big beats, vocal shades) had been snatched, but otherwise I could pretty much get all I wanted. Well, I had to pay almost a tenner for each and have them shipped, but I am complaining. I have mailed / called all tv production companies and radio stations in finland (ok the ones operational in the 1960's and 1970's) with no luck. or one station had the sonotons, but were still using them...
    I must confess it was amazing to me. And it taught me a lesson. I am now starting to try and contact people operating in the same field, but i have no great hopes. The guy who sold me those records told me his was the most extensive collection of libraries in the country. He also told me that he contacted the people who originally sold him those records out of london and that they "offered" to come to Portugal and collect all the records, but without paying them. So instead he decided on selling them that way... My luck!

    On another note: does anyone know if those Book catalogues i mentioned are worth anything? I think he has a couple more lying around that i will try to get next wednsday when i hit that spot again...

      The cats are only useful to people like me who want to research and type up the listings. If you have any I don't have then I would gladly take them off your hands.

        Hey Sermad

        Just tell me what you&#39;re looking for and i&#39;ll see what the guy has. Actually i&#39;m finding it very useful also, but surely i don&#39;t need them all. So, let me know...

          I found a pile of colourmusic and sonoton records here in Norway + a sonoton catalogue. Does anybody know when the sonotons came out?

            I have a load of those (lots of John Fiddys) and they appear to be mostly 1980s. Don&#39;t know when they started producing them though.

              Sonoton as a company have been around since the 1960s, but their recordings were issued in the UK via Conroy/Berry Music. I think by the early 80s, Conroy had become a specialist subsidiary of KPM, mainly dealing in national-type music, so I&#39;d imagine Sonoton started doing their own LPs about that time.

              I don&#39;t know whether the Conroy connection was just for the UK or whether they handled all their international distribution - I&#39;ll have to look into that.
