Bluebird Discography covers the first five years of
RCA’s popular budget-priced line, including (in the case of
reissues) full data on the original source recordings.
As with all titles in Mainspring's Victor Discography Series, data
are compiled from the original Victor Talking Machine Co., RCA Victor,
and Gramophone Company recording ledgers and production files. To
preserve the integrity of this original company data, no undocumented,
speculative, or anecdotal material appears.
Listings include all corresponding authorized issues and reissues
(domestic and foreign) in 78-rpm format. Volume I also features
an illustrated history of Bluebird and the other RCA budget labels.
