Dear Dan,

I understand your anxious to make a Turk Murphy discography. But mind that
making a discography is not a simple as that. Of course you can start making
a list of your own records, of the records of your friends, of the records
you find in books, in auction lists, list in .......... It's a hell of a
I'd suggest you get into contact with "Sam .... ", the Dutchmen I talked
with in Wageningen (Who can help me with the complete name?)  or with the
San Francisco Traditional Jazz Foundation before you start this adventure

Keep swinging

discographies for Turk Murphy (other than in Jim Goggin's book, _Turk
Murphy: Just for the Record_ from 1982, before he died in 1987 and before
the advent of CD's).

starting point, then try to get the rest at other places.

or whatever on how to compile a discography--are there any?  Or just any
hints y'all out there would share with me?  I'll probably write the
discography using FileMaker Pro on my Mac, and it can be ported to Access or
Excel or text, etc.

think of it.  Thanks.
