Hi Bob,

I have a copy of the Tom Lord discography on CD and can recommend it. Vast 
amounts of information which is easily accessible via the various search 
facilities - much easier than looking through a collection of books!

Searching by tune, artist, band leader, etc. is all possible and even multi 
searches such as, "Did Arvin Smartass and Gloria Gropefinger record 'Goatburger 
Stomp' together?" (in this example only the artists names have been changed, 
the tune actually exists!). There is also the possibility of hour of fun 
looking up silly song titles!

But seriously I found it very useful both for work and play. There are some 
glitches in the thing but I understand that a new edition incorporating loads 
of new information and corrections will be ready soon.
