I hope someone will suggest that my "Hit of the week Discography", "Durium
(GB) Discography" and "Durium Advertisement and Custom Records Discography"
belong to this "true-type" DISC-o-Graphies too.

It was the reason why my Oscar Aleman "Discography" is called: "Oscar Alemán
Tune-O-Graphy - Lisado de temas (a discography - una discografia). I hope to
publish once a "true' Oscar Alemán DISCography".

Keep swinging
